Richmond, May r, 1873. There are apprehensions felt that the spring freshets will prove more serious in their conse qnenocs than for years past. At Danville the river Dan Is higher than It has been before 4n the memory of tho "oldest In habitant," and It Is atlll rising. Families are fleeing from their threatened homes at some points, while at others tho houses have been swept away and much valuable prop erty has already been destroyed. A despatch says hundreds of people aro collected on the banks of the river watching the gradual rising of the waters and trembling for the safety or their property. It Is feared the whole country in that section will be Inundated. At Lexington the North River has risen very rapidly, and the roads are all submerged and Impassable. The North is a tributary of the James, and will help to swell the flood that new threatens Richmond from Lynchburg, where there has been a rise In the river of over fifteen feet in less thau twelve hours. At Charlottesville tbe Rivanna is very high and still on the rise; it Is also a tributary of the James in part. So far as intelligence has been ob talned all the streams supplying the James are ris ing rapidly, and unless a lavorable chauge speedily takes place there will be an ugly flood here?a repetition, it may be, of the scenes of 1871. Destructive Freshets la the Dsn River? The Bridges Threatened?Tenements Swept Away?Exodus from Dwellings? i Marrow Escapes from Drowning. Danville, Va., Muy 8,1873. This has been a day or Intense interest and ex. cltement for this city. The unusually heavy and continuous rains or the past two days have caused the most extensive and destructive freshets ever known In Dan Kivur. Never was such a flood seen by the oldest Inhabitants. The river continues to rise, and great fears are entertained for the safety of the wagon bridge, which is now almost reached by the angry waters. The damage to fences, houseB, barns and bridges cannot be esti mated. The banks of the rlvor have been lined all day by eager spectators anxiously watching the oncoming water. Large numbers ol families livlnsr near the river in places hitherto entirely sale have been compelled to flee from their dwellings, leaving their houses, out houses and gardens submerged, while a half dozen small tenement honses have been swept entirely away, with all their contents. There have been several narrow escapes from drowning, but for tunately no lives lost. The beer garden and saloon recently constructed on Reed Island, a short distance down the river, have been carried away with the furniture and Stock. The extensive foundry and machine shops of Messrs. Crews, llhodenhlser A Co. are flooded with water, and their losses are heavy in timber, fixtures and damage to machinery. The worst consequences are apprehended. WASHINGTON. Protest of the Governor of Sonora Against the Howard Apaehe Treaty. Washington, May 8, 1873. The Commissioner of Indian Affairs has received a copy of the protest of J. Pcsquelra, Governor of Sonora, to Governor Safford, ol Arizona, against what he supposes to be the stipulations of the treaty entered Into between General O. O. Howard and the Indian Chief cochlse. Governor Pesqueira recites quite a list of murders and lesser crimes committed by Cochise between November last and March of thq present year, and claims that the treaty above allnded to allows Cochise to have free range in Mexico. Commissioner Smith says this Is an entire mistake, as the treaty in no way refers to SonorSOT oL??? Mexlcanterrltonr. it is tr\je that atrocities have Xeen'bommfttedinSonora by the Apaches, as Pesqueira alleges; but if participated In by any members or Cochise's band, it has been without Cochise's sanction, as all reports show he has personally conformed In good faith to the terms and spirit of his treaty, thongh he may have been nnable to control outlaws of his band. The Union Pacific and the Government. The Attorney General has decided the question submitted to him some time since by the Secretary of War as to the right of the government to retain one-half of the pay to the Union Pacific Railroad Company for government transportation by the company across its bridge over the Missouri River I at Omaha, and holds that the determination of this question docs not involve tho Inquiry as to tho terminus of the Union Pacific Railroad, and, there fore, there la no decision upon that subject. Second, that the act of 1862, Incorporating the company, and the amendatory act of 1864, are to be taken together as one act, and, as they provide that one-half of All compensation for services rendered by the company to the government shall be retained for the payment of its bonds and Interest, without naming any specific services, and as said acts grant railroad telegraph and bridge franchises the Attorney General holds that the provision as to {omjensauon applieq as well to services under the other of tTiese franchises. Third, that nnder the act of 1873 all compensation for services to the government by said company upon its railroads of any kind is to b? retained so long as any interest j|n the United Stat&J J>y the company npon Its bond;* remain unpaid, ailo l.h&t the railroad of the company across the brldgo is odd the railroads to which said act applies. Decision by the Comraltf*ioner of Pen* slons* The Commissioner of Pensions has decided that no attorney will bo recognised In ? claim for In crease of pension provided for by section 0, act of March 3,1873, to a single minor already receiving an original pension, nor in a claim for increase of pension also provided for by the aforesaid section to minor children of officers. The retvrn of the certificate or pension to the Commissioner is the only requisite to the adjudication of the claim. Contributors to the Congressional Con science Fund. Both John B. Hawley, of Illinois, and Joseph R. flawley, of Connecticut, have some time sines cov ered their back pay Into the United States Treas ury; also J. M. Rusk, of Wisconsin.

Mr. Ames had been Buffering from dlabotes for nearly three yeara, but by a strict attention to diet had been able to keep that disease In cheok. On Monday night., April *24, he had an attack of Indi gestion, but. attended to his duties In Bos ton on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, and ou Thursday he remalued at home occasionally visiting his a|Jlce. At North Kaaiou, Thursday evening, he was seized with Inflammation of the diaphragm. Through the nly.ht he suiTered Intense pain, obtaining no sleep.

Mr. Ames remained partially conscious at intervals up to noon of Wednesday, from which time he remained perfectly unconscious up to the time ol his death. Sketch of Okkei Amen. Oakes Amos was born tn Easton, Bristol county, Mass., January 10, 1804. He was a manufacturer by profession, and for the greater part of bis life was identified wltb the town of North Easton, to whlcb place he went from Plymouth, Mass., sixty five years ago, a poor bey. He learned tlie trade of shovel making at a forge, and the old shop whore first ho worked still stands as a reminder of the past. Ho was for two years a member of the Executive Council of the State, and In 18G2 was elccted a Representative lrorn Massachusetts to the Thirty-eighth Congress, serving on the com mittees on Revolutionary Claims and Manufac tures. He was re-elected to the Thirty-ninth Con Srreas, serving on the committees on the Pacific taiiroad and Manulactures. lit; was also a dele gate to the Philadelphia Loyalists' Convention of 1800 aud re-elected to the Fortieth, Forty-first and Fort.v-Becond congresses. speaking of the man as he was known to his neighbors u despatch Mom North Fusion says:? "in all his business wanderings he never lost sight or the towu ef bis adoption. An acadcmy building, and one of the finest in the Commonwealth, was constructed through the munificent donation of $4d,000 by the Ames lamlly, and there are other and permanent, improvements, which are the work of his benevolence. Mr. Ames was looked upon as everybody's friend. Without ostentation he always careiully provided for the wants of his employes and paid them a rale of wages fully up to the average in all the states. During the financial crisis of 1867 and 1858 Mr. Ames not only helped himself through the dull cuity, but aided his neighbors too, so that they cannot but feel hlB loss ss that of a near and dear friend. Mr. Ames' manner 01 life among his towns men was very simple. Entirely destitute of tbat conceit which sometimes accompanies the posses sion of great wealth, he deported himself at home as a sturdy, self-reliant old farmer, contented with himself when others were doing well, and without one grain of selfishness. He waB here, there and everywhere about the town, always good naiured and ready to help anybody whom he thought was trying to help hlmselr. Mr. Ames was never before the country in all his career in Congress until the Credit Mebilier explo sion of last year. He was not a lovable man to strangers, and had few ef the qualities that attract popularity, ile had the Vankee trait of shrewd, sharp, mouey-getting largely developed, and Ills operations connected with the Cnion Pacific Rail road showed, In the science of gain, he was bold, original and not over scrupulous, lie was a mau of largo, almost gigantic, frame, heavy featured and outwardly dull and ungarnlshed. The painful prominence given to him by the OrMlt Mobilier in vestigation had nQ very deleterious effect upon his placid temperament. Unlike one who has gone before him but a lew ?'?J9 be treated the odium of public opinion with calm and cynical lnullhrence. Ht.nd.ving the latter day code ef morals and piiiioaopby he satisfied himself that tfee ohltf end of human endeavor was the acquisition of wealth; tbat ail means Just^ed Jk and that the successful ?n? ^ HUa World Is he whft Ve&ps concealed the worst methods Of his suc cess. In his town he was a respected and admired man of mark. He leaves behind him no memorial of conspicuous public service {rhlcn history will be likely to admire; but it will never be lorgotten that he was instrumental in showing as that hu man nature has its weaknesses to-day as well as in all past, time, and tbat it is pesslble to seduce the virtue of the most trusted and honored ameng public men.

TELEGRAPH CONSOLIDATION, What th? Prcildeat ?f the fMllc Atlantic Line Has to Say-The w,,Ur] Union to Swallow the Smaller Llnei. HfTTSBtTRO, Pa., Mar S. Ui\ fllpee the election of now ofllcer* <jf mo Pacta* and Atlantic Tolsgraph Company, which eren{ took place last i*u&k<faf, there hare been reports correal tnat the Western Union wan to takn pon? session of the line, and also rumors that Augustus Soholl and Cornelius Vanderbilt were to seours control of the present Western Union line, wh<?0 that company would slip In and run the new Hue. William G. Johnson, of this city, the new Presi dent of the Paeillc and Atlantic Company, was In terviewed this afternoon in regard to the truth off the assertion that his line wim about to bat absorbed by the Western Union. The President said that be could not learn that there w*s a single stockholder of the Western Union Com pany that held shares in Pacific and Atlantic. The retiring management would hare formed a lease* he said, with the Western Union If it could have been done on the right sort of terms. The present Hoard had not given the matter the least attention. It organized and adiaurned, and will not meet again for threo months unless business oi special Importance should necessitate its meeting, la answer to the question whether or not negotiation* were pending on the part of the Board, looking ts the control of the Pacific and Atlantic and passing it to the Western Union, the reply was, "I em phatically deny that there are any negotta* lions going on becween the Pacific am* Atlantic ami Western Union, either with reference to sale, lease or any control whatever. The direc tors or the company or the President are powerless to prevent their stockholders from selling theid certificates to nny who may desire to purchase in# same, and liavo iu na way endeavored to control their actions." in regard to the representations of feeling dls> played by Uio stockholders at the recent election towards the retiring management Mr. Johusoiu said there were leur gentlemen preseut who hels proxies of stockholders to an amount exceeding * largo majority of the whole stock: and the express ana only conditions apon widen these proxieo were obtained were that the late oflloers should not be re-elected, either to odiciat position or even as members cV the Hoard. No stipulation was made as to who should oconpji tnelr places, and the definite arrangements were! never made by holders of proxies until within tw? hours of the election, and tne new ticket was the* agreod upon, after consultation with quite a largo number of holders of the stocj; other than those who held proxies, and their views wero unani mous. Resolutions were permitted to be oarrled by half a dozen weak voices rather than provoks angry discussion which would have been useless and interminable. The President further said that three-fourths o| the whole stock were voted last Tuesday, and thai tho vote was unanimous. He and the new Board} knew nothing further about tbe financial conditio* oi the company other than the information galne# from the report of the old Board, lie presume)! that this report wus correct, having been passew ou by inlormal audit, hut that It was necessarn that the audit should not be formally made, as ro quired by their rules. He also stated that It woaltS require the written consent of the holders of three* fourths of the Pacific and Atlantic stock to effect a transfer or lease with the Western Union. It ts also learned that arrangements have beesi made by the new Hoard for consolidation with thai Atlantic and Pacific, which also includes thai Franklin linos. The Atlantic and Pacific lines ox? tend ftom Washington through New York to DM<t ton; from New Vorlc, via Albauy, to Chicago; tkencS to Omaha and Han Francisco; also fr#m New York* by the Midland Itallroad, to oswego, Cleveland an<E Cincinnati, connecting with the system of Canadlaa lines at Detroit. They secured a large number ofl side lines, such, for Instance, as the Ureal West-? ?rn, having 1,000 miles of wire in Illinois, Wiscon* sin. Iowa and other Western Stales, the lined owned by the Heading Kailroaa Company and ooj their other roads amounting to about one thoosauw miles. 1 COTTON AND THE_OCEAN GABLES. A Movement Among the Cotton Brokwf to Resist Monopoly and Eitabll?h ad| Opposition Atlantic Telegraph. A movement has been set on foot at the Cotton Exchange for the purpose or calling the attention of the commercial world to the Importance and ex4 pedlenry of laying a new cable In opposition to th4{ lines now in use.
