AS ICE BLOCKADE, Cant River, New York, Bridged. wliU Ice—Exciting Scenes and XXalrbreadtb Escape*—Perilous Adventures—Two Ladioi In Hunger. [From the New York Tribune, January 21.1 But twice in fillecn years have thecitlcs ot Sew York and Brooklyn been united by the Ice Odds formed by tbc storm and cold %rcatl'cr—once, in 1853, when thousands of persons crossed the ice between thecltics for days to and from, and again In 1887, partially, when, for the space oi a day, the immense musses of icc boating and surging in the depths of the river became wedged to the consistency of a macadamized road, and the river involuntarily bridged Itself to yield passage uud thoroughfare to the eager thou oamls', who thronged the icc in order that they might say. later in their live-, that ‘•they hud crossed the East River—oa ice ” The large floating cakes of icc, which from an early hour traversed the up per half of the East River yesterday, de scending with noiseless motion, and the force and majesty vf Arctic icebergs, con gealed Into a huge iucrustcd and billowy , Held, between Peck-slin and the Fulton Per- I rv, and, about » o’clock in the morning, the I ice hud attained snUicicnt firmness to a-lmit of a safe passage to those who were adven turous to make the cs-ay. A brace of ’long shoremen nude tbc first attempt, and suc ceeded in gaming the Brooklyn shore, after many and curu-u* adventures on the “ sea of ice.” Thousands of people, on either mar gin of the river, stood congregated, and no sooner had the two adventurers made a land, itig on the Brooklyn side, than a shout of congratulation aroselrorothcmnltUude who had seen and were applauding the daring leal. The Ice field wa« smooth near the shore on either side, and in the middle slight eleva tions and nudnUtioDs were noticeable where iwowavcs had driven the Icc upward. As far os the icc could reach or span, a huge white surface presented itself, covered here uud there with black moving spots of men. and the varied cotot* and hues combined in tbc costume* of several adventurous w-*m**n who bad violated tbc natural timidity ot their sex, and pushed from the Now York side on a voyage to Brooklyn. The brave ladies had to be helped over the snowy tunvfi In the Arid of icc by the gentlemen in their immediate vicinity. Despite the ef fort* of tbc police, thousands of persons passed to and fro for hours, until noon-day, when the tide commenced to ebb, and those on the icc foil the icc heaving and swaying under their feet, as if moved by some unseen leviathan. Large cakes of the crystalline material were seen to bulge upward, and the crowd* on the shore began to look anxiously toward the passengers on tbc icc. Still thc'impeiiding danger did not deter ad ditional crowds from venturing their lives, with that cold-blooded, reckless audacity which is | ecullar aloue to the born New Yorker. At the time that the ice commenced to break up into cokes of various dimensions, thete was on the surface of the ice at least soo or GOO persons from Pcck-slip to Wall street Feny. Ttie crowds on the shore shouted wildly ut the people on the Ice to take heed and make speedy progress to the adjoining shores ; but either the excitement caused by the unusual event of crossing the river on an icc-bridje, or the distance from the j-hcro, may have prevented a great num ber of people from hearing the warning cries, and consequently when the field divided and separated into a multiplicity of small cakes voryltg In width from half-a-dozen acres to the elzf of a 100-foot lot, numbers of people were carried down the stream half frightened out of tbeir wits. There were on some of the cakes groups of halfa people, and among them delicate women, two of whom arc well-known In Brooklyn, one being the wife of a prominent clergyman and the other the wife of the pro* prictor of a New Voik daily newspaper. As the tide was running down the river very lust the blocks of ice bearing their unwilling passengers were swept down with resistless force nntil opposite Governor’s Island, and here scvtnil steam tngs came whistling and screaming to the rescue. As many as sixty persons were taken otf of one mammoth cuke, much to their relief, many of them de -1 clailng with loud asseverations that they I would never attempt a passage on on lee j bridge uuuin. Two .of the ferry boats mode I passages through the lee for the purpose of saving pedestrians who had imperiled themselves. It is believed that only one life was lost by this foolish pastime. While the ferry boat Nebraska whs making endeavors to enter the slip at Fulton Ferry a man was discovered directly ahead of the boat making for the New York shore, and whether from careless* ncs? er not it Is not known but the Nebraska, with resistless force, striking through the tee made a yawning chasm, and into this abyss the man, whos? name Is unknown, disappear*

ed. and the lee closed over with the rapidity of lightning. But for a moment the unknown mac secured a footing on a small fragment of ice, and as it careened he merged his life, by his own carelessness, into the depths of the cold, surging waters or the East Kiver. Many of the cakes of ice. forced by the i current, drifted in toward the shores on either side, \nd were dashed up against the 1 sides of the vessels moored at their wharves and decks, and the crews in every Instance yielded thim assistance promptly by heav mg lines and tossing planks, boxes aud hen* ci-ops ovciboard in order to save their lives. There were hairbreadth escapes Innumerable I and beyond calculation, and thousands cn* I countered enough perils yesterday to give I food for reflection aud material for prolific I anecdote all the remaining years of their I lives. * TWO LADIBS IN' HAXOEB. {From the New York World.l It Trill be remembered by some of our renders that Rev. H. W. Beecher crossed the ice in ISSO, ana bad rather a dangerous ex perience, which, It U supposed, was suf licunt to cure him ot any further wi*h to craniate Peter of old, whose unsuccessful attempt to walk the Sea of Galilee fs generally Known. Sirs. Beecher, however, not to be outdouc by her husband, yesterday secured the company of Mrs. Moses S. Beach, and together the two attempted to cross the bridge. Captain Duncan, of Mr. Beecher’s church, unable to dissuade them from the adventure. determined to accompany them, and imperilled his own life for their safety. Toe passage was a hard one, but galhsrlnsr up all their pluck, the lades persisted In their couise, and had gotten threo-lburtbs of the way across when the lee near the shore begrn to break up. The danger ofthelr position can be imagined, and ihcy seemed fully to appreciate it. The excite men* on shore was raised to boiling Pilch. Apparently no means of escape was at hiud. The tec aU round them began tocrack; then the cakes swaved fearfully. The crowd sbnuttrd to save them : the women ran wit 1* ly from one cake to another; ropes were thrown them which they -a led to catch, and h the excitement it seemed they moat per- Lh. At length, however, the tide forced the okea on which they were standing close np t> the dock, and with the assistance of those 01 shore, the party were safely landed. It la tr be presumed that their desire to cross the Bibt River after such a fashion is sated by taia time. A Memphis Official Decamp* With $27,000. (Prom the Memphis Commercial, January 16.1 ’ we regret to learn that one of our ex-city eflicials lell the city a day or two since un der very suspicious circumstances, and he is supposed to be a defaulter to the amount of $27,000, the city being the loser. As the matter Is out, we may mention that the gen tleman is no other than P. T. Hughes, a well known citizen. It seems that when he went ontof office recently as Comptroller, he failed to make full returns of the property in bis hands, among which was a large amount of county bonds. The Mayor frequently Insisted that be should make a settlement, but he pnt it off from time to time, under some pretext or other. FlnsUv the Mnvnr.Hwhr, uui junta to do so. Thurs day evening he went aboard a boat bound for New Orleans. The Mayor sent the Ser gcam-at-Arms /or him. Be came up to the office much exchcd and all dripping with ■perspiration. Be again protested that 'all was right, and that the coupons of the bonds or the vouchers were in his safe, and that he bad left the key with a brotber-in law or !:Icud of his. This explanation was received, and he was permitted to go back to the boat, which wus just ready to leave. The next morning his friend explained that Mr. Hughes in his hurry had failed to leave his keys, but that be would have the safe opened by a locksmith. The Major visited the safe, and was in formed thrt some one had been at work try. iug to open it. But it showed no evidence of eucU work, and it Is not believed to have been touched. J**The allulr became generally known upon the streets yesterday, and created a consid erable sensation.

Governor Eyre, Arfemus Ward and | Ellen craft* I Ellen Craft, wife of William Craft, with! whom she escaped from a plantation in Gcor- I 'ia—the haoited as a Southern gentleman, I he as her body servant—is, os you may Judge j by the manner of her escape, almost white. ) She is also quite pood looking, quite lutelll- j gentjand Is welcomed lu the best society of I London. Lately she met at a dinner com- | iflny, without knowing it, ex-Govcrnor I •lyre, and, as fate would have it, j fell to talking of the Jamaica affair I with him. Ellon knows how to I use her tongue with considerable effect. I and the cx-Goveruor was somewhat amazed j aud embarrassed to hear himself terribly castigated by a Indy of whose relation to the negro race he had no idea whatever. Whilst the convcisatiun was going on, some one hinted to her that the person to whom she was uttering her Indignation was no oilier than cx-Govtrnor Eyre himself; whereupon, 1 /'rankly and unembarrassed, she turned upon him and said solemnly, “Do not you, your* sell, sir, feel now that poor Gordon was most unjustly executed?” Thcex-Goveruor j upon ti>is was overwhelmed with coulu- | .-ion, turned veiy red, excused himself, I and walked to the other cud of the | reem, Ellen is a kind of mis sionary among the grandees here. She was i the other day at a line dinner where Arte Ward was a guest, and c&cu out blunt ly with—“ They left me, Mr. Brown, that you ore always very hard upou t »e poor ne gro.” Aricmne, who was entirely unaware of the race of the person with w.iom he wa* conversli g, replied. “Now who told you Unit?” “Well, a good many people; but, in fact, thci o Is a good deal In your books that would niver hare been written by a friend of that unfortunate race.” Arteams colored considerably, for he felt that the company he was in felt a cer tain sympathy with her rebuke ; and he said, “ Not at all; I abuse white people as mueh us Ido the blacks.” “Well, rejoined Ellen, looking him stralghtly in the eye, “ I hope you wm never again write anything which shall noko people believe that you are against the negro.” Is it not passins strange ihatan intelligent and refined fugitive slave should be over here confronting and rebuk ing in high places the enemies of her people? —Litter fron i London. Four Popular Lies. (From the Bostoa Transcript.] The following stories are constantly report ed In the newspapers, and as often as I once a year they find lodgment in one setUr& or another throughout the country.

That he has made up with Mrs. Dickens, and they now uve to getber again. Charles Dickens is not only in the yearly receipt of very large su us, both from his books and hts readings, but he is one the best business men In-England, husbanding his means most judiciously, while bis benevolence is nobly conspicuous, iiis wile has not come back to him, but still lives in her own estab lishment in London, while his residence is ot Rochester, thirty miles from the city. No. 2. That one of Mr. Longfellow’s daughters was born without arms: that she draws and paints beautifully with her feet. Ti ls error arose from a potograph which, by a mistake jn position, gave the impres si< n of an armless chid. No. 8. That Samuel Rogers, the English roet, kept a million pound note framed uud bung up In his library. This lie was slatted by an Englishman in America, and was find printed In a foolish !>ccount oi some London authors in a hook called “Pen and ink Sketches.” The wil ier’* name was John Ro<s Dis, who hoaxed the reading public In various ways.
