The Kccent Terrible Accident to tbo Steamer Gilchrist on the Mississippi Kiver at- Rock Islahd.—Several i-ive* IiOSt. ,,.., ,. _ A Davenport (Iowa) special of the 28th to the Chicago Times gives the following particulars of the recent terrible accident on the river near the former city: A terrible and most heartrending accident pefeuifredin,the^ississippi River, near this city, last night, which resulted in great loss of life. It appears that the steamer Gilchrist left this point about 10:30 o'clock, in apparently good trim and condition, bound for all points up the river, loaded with a large anjcLvaluable, cargo of miscellaneous freight aiid carrying in her cabins a full list of passengers. When the steamer had passed under the Government bridge spanning the Mississippi, and connecting tho cities of Davenport and Rock Island, the cam-rods of the engine suddenl3r gave way, 'causing the lan'tire iriachinervdo become un- 'miifl'age'abjVarid useless. The rivei-Just now is very.high, owingto the recent and extensive floods, and the current"} *1s' consequently unusually rapid, so wlieri'tlTe'steamer Gilchrist had no longer her machinery to keep her bow up stream the swiftly-running river carried the help- Mess* vessel downstream at a. rapid and appalling rate. Being so near the bridge the steamei was thrown with, tremendous and resistless force against one of the abut- .tnents,.^Aaithe Gilchrist came in collision with the enormous mass of stone she careened, causing the weights on the safety- valves of the steam-chesfc to break from their fastenings and slide.of£ The valves no longer holding a check on the steam in tho boilers", it "poured out in huge volumes and^enyeloped the-hapless crew and passengers, "who were wildly* endeavoring to se- sure life-preservers ihJ the main saloon,, aud scalded many of them in an awful manner. ■-No. sooner Md' the* steamer rebounded from the* shock ofthe collision than she began sinking, in which* condition she was carried past and below this city, the shrieks and cries for help utteredjiy Jhe frenzied victims being* *dlstinctly audible by large crowds of citizens who soon thronged the banks, but theycould extend no. assistance, iVube steamer was hurled' past their eyes by the.turbulent*.river. All -Of the small boats and'sfciff- usually numerous on the river had been drawn asTiore and laid away for the winter and to escape the floods which- have prevailed all along the course of the Mi.esissippI'RiverTor'neariy "a fortnight, so there was no means of speedily reaching the sinking steamer or the men, women and .htldren^'whb*" "were doubtless strug-' srling at that moment with the cur-: rent. "But the. " "people on the land •did not stand supinely whi'e their fellows were perishing before their eyes, for the other steamers that happened to be lying at the bank, immediately hastened into motion,' thronged by eager helpers, and all hastened-to-the—scene -ofthe disaster,in liopes,of Rescuing at, least some" of those 'cm boar^tjfil^ilenilit** As I write these hurried lines these steamers are actively at work searching for survivors.

Saying he was very tired and Sleepy, he lay down, and fifteen minutes later he was found dead on his bed. The new shaft being sunk bv the Corunna Coal Company has entered three feet six inches of first-class coal at a depth of seventy-five feet. Large works are being built. Diphtheria is assuming a new form at Oscoda. Grown people have it. The village of Roscommon is trying to be incorporated. The Union depot project at Detroit is'said to be virtually assured by the favorable action of the Wabash managers, a few days since, and other roads will now, no doubt, promptly enter into the common agreement. The first thing to be done is the erection of the new million-bushel elevator at the foot of Eighteenth and a Half street, and the work on • the foundation will be begun at once and proceed all winter. The iron on the Manistee branch of the Flint & Pere Marquette has been laid to the Sauble River, fourteen miles from the main line, and track-laying has been stopped until the bridge across this stream is completed.

The Menominee Herald reports that two men saw a white deer on the north branch of the Pike a few days ago* Ithadnofca spot on it, but was pure white, and when they discovered it it, was running rapidly. Neither one of them had a gun, but one shot at it with his revolver, without effect. White deer are not common. The Muskegon city officials are much elated over the decision of the Supreme Court allowing the work of constructing a new city hall to proceed by dissolving an injunction granted by. an inferior court. Reports from up north are to the effect that a perfect slaughter of deer is going onr some parties of hunters killing as many as twenty-five or thirty in a week ju-sfc for fun,, as the carcasses cannot be utilized on account of the ^rih weather, and they are •allowed to lie and rot where they fall. Is there no way to put a stop to this useless slaughter? The Bay County Supervisors have voted a tax of $25,000 to buy the Third Street bridge at Bay City and make it a free thoroughfare. The peopte are to confirm or reject the proposition by vote. In Silver Creek three young Indians ran home from the Catholic church to escape a rain, when one of them, named Lawrence * Casbway, burst a blood- vessel and fell dead.

Brown very strangely disappeared from her home in Grand Rapids a few nights ago. She and her husband had been visiting her brother, M. F. Owens, during the evening, .and after they went *home she sat up to read a newspaper after he went; to bed. At midnight he woke to find that she had quit the house, leaving nothing to show where or why she had gone. She took no clothing save what she wore, no money or jewelry, and went bareheaded. Her husband and brother affirm that she Was well, never showed signs of insanity, had been particularly happy in her mar- riedjife. Und that her disappearance cannot be accounted for in any ordinary way. A search vigorously prosecuted had up to the 25th failed to discover any clew of her. and both husband and brother were near crazy. The four-year-old child of Robert King, ii Detroit lahoriug man, was recemly kidnaped by unknown parties. The authorities are diligently searching in every direction, but the traces are very indistinct. It is thought the child was .carried, off by a woman, but for what object cannot bo divined.

Ninety percent, ofthe observers reported diarrhea, which thus appears to 'be unusually prevalent for. the season of the year. About one- third (32 per cent.) of all the observers re- 'port diphtheria, ten per cent, report scarlet- fevers, and the same proportion cerebro-spinal meningitis. "No smallpox was reported from any part pt the State. The five places from which scarlet fever were reported in this manner, were.- Detroit, East Saginaw, Sag- anaw City, Muskegon and Pontiac. If this disease is present afc any other place in Michigan, the Secretary of the State Board would be glad to be informed. Diphtheria is known, to be present in other places than the sixteen from which it was reported oh the weekly-report plan. . Pami h'efc doc-- uments on the restriction of diphtheria are being sent from the office of the State Board 'of Health to such places as fast as they are reported. Ifc frequently happens, however, that diphtheria occurs in localities that have notplaced themselves in communication with tbe State Board as thelaw requires, byreport- ing the name and address of their health officer, and by reporting outbreaks of diseases dangerous to the -public h*jalth, as required by the State Board, under tbe law. In order to make these weekly bulletins as complete as possible, local health authorities should make their ^reports to the State Board promptly, aiid regular observers are respectfully requested to send in reports as soon as possible after tbe close of each week.
