BONNETS, expected here for our Spring Opening, and which for a
long while was delayed on the road, has at last reached us, and will
be opened out for the first time on MONDAY, April 19th. Among them
will be found some of the most unique and handsomest Bonnets ever
exhibited in this community. In addition to these, we are also pre-
pared to show the largest variety of Trimmed and Untrimmed Hats

Washington, May sth. — At to-day's meet
ing of the House Committee on Mines, Rep
resentative Bclford offered a short and simple
substitute for the Public Land Commission
bill. This substitute proposes to confine all
new legislation on the subject to an amend
ment to Section 2322 of the Kevised Statutes,
by adding to said section the following words :
" And in all cases where »he main dip of the
lode, vein or ledjje does not exceed 30 degrees
from the horizon, the right to follow the
mineral shall not extend beyond the side
line drawn downward vertically."
Senator Jonei aud Representative Daggett
were present when this Mibstitute was offered.
They stated that they could see no objections
to it-» adoption, they being satisfied that a
distinction should be made between flat lodes
and fijsure veins.
Mr. Belford suggested that the Congres
sional Representatives of the mining Stateß
aud Territories should meet at Senator Jones'
house to-morrow evening and definitely agree
upon a measure regulating the location of Hat
lodes that do not appear upon the (surface,
and a meeting will be held accordingly.
As soou as the bill is agreed upon it, will be
introduced in the House aud Senate aad
pressed for passage without delay.
The Public Lauds Commi.-sion bill is op
posed by all the members from the Far West
and a number from the East, and to-day's
proceedings in c immittee indicate that it will
not become a law.
Your correspondent has ascertained to-day
that the majority of the Board of Engineers
have selected Port Orford, Oiegon, as the
point where the proposed harbor of refuse
shall be constructed. The minority recom
mend Trinidad, California, as the best loca
tion, but as the law of last yeai confined thu
power of absolute selection upon a majority
of the Board, and appropriated §150,000 for
commencing the work, tin present majority
determiuation is final, unles3 Congress fhall
explicitly decide otherwise. The appropria
tion is, however, to be expended under direc
tion of the Secretary of War, hence the ne
cessity of submitting the report to him for
his orders to commence operations.
The Postmaster-General, at the instance of
Senator Farley, has authorized the Postmas
ter at Wilmington to advertise for proposals
for transferring the mails from the postoffice
to the anchorage, five or six miles distant.
No Bpecial provision has heretofore been
made for performing this service.
The Postoffice Department has also ordered
a weekly mail service during six months of
the summer season between Sutter Creek,
Amador county, and Woolford*, in Alpine
county. The contract is given to Ree<l of
Placerville at Si, ooo, the lowest bid.
Secretary Evarts to-day, at the request of
Horace Davi?, wrote a letter to Yueng Wing,
the Chinese Minister, calling his attention to
the heavy penalties prescribed by the census
law for refusals to furnish information to the
Censu Enumerators. This will indirectly,
but doubtless efficaciously, suegest to the
Chinese Minister the desirability of his issu
ing a notice to the Mongolian ret-idents of
California that they must promptly answer
the interrej-atories of the mysterious census
Senator Booth to-day introduced a dupli
cate of Representative Davis' bill to grant an
American register to the bark Annie John
son, rebuilt at Tahiti by the San Francisco

John F. Swift left Washington to-day for

where he will visit Minister Aiigell and then
proceed to California.

A Committee on Resolutions was ap

are for Grant.
Jackson, May sth. — There is a large at

were nominated for temporary Chairman (the
latter a Sherman man).
WISCONSIN — REPUBLICAN.
Madison, May oth.— R. H. Baker, Chair
man of the Republican State Central Com
mittee, called the Convention to order at 12
o'clock. In his remarks he said that a eolid
South had been organized, and must be met
with a solid North. He hoped the Wiscon
sin delegation would go to Chicago uniu
gtructed. and unite on the man about whose
election there was no question. Tbe success
of the Republican party depended on no one

President ; C. A. Willard. of Brown, Secre

William P. McClaren was elected perma
nent Chairman, and H. M. Kutchen and W.
H. Josselyn Secretaries.
Considerable discussion arose as to the
manner of selecting delegates at large to the
Chicago Convention, which ended in a call
of the roll for votes on the Presidential ques
tion, resulting in Washbume receiving 88,
Blame 80, Sherman 42, Grant 39, Edmunds
3. Tbe discussion was on the choice of dele
gates at large, the Waehburne, Sherman and
Grant delegations combining to keep Blame
from having a representative.
The following delegates at large were
chosen: C. B. Cussady, Edward SandersoD,,
Thomas B. Scott and George Vanteenwick. '
Alternates— R. Baker, DewittC. Davis, Gbo.
B. Scott and Paul Lacktnand. District dele
gates were then chosen by their districts.

Concord, May sth.— The Democratic
State Convention was called to order by
George F. Putnam, Chairman of the State
Committee, and he named John W. Shirley
for President, and all ■ the other officers.
Several committees were then appointed.
The resolutions reported and adopted
reaffirm devotion to Democratic principles ;
denounce the methods and doctrines of the
Republican party and the fraud by which
Hayes was installed as President ; assert the
right of free election?, free from intimidation
of Federal bayonets or any other instru
mentality. The resolutions express confi
dence thai, the delegates chosen will act
conjointly at Cincinnati with the representa
tives of the party in a wise and discreet
seltction of a national standard-bearer.
■ The delegates chosen are Harry Bingham,
John A. George. Frank Jones, Martin V. B.
Edgerly. S Alternates, Joseph Burroughs,
John W. Morse, John F. Cloutman and
David 11. Young.
The delegates are instructed to adhere to
the two-thirds rule.
Concord, May sth.— lt is impossible at
this time to ascertain the exact status of the
delegation to the Cincinnati Convention
elected today, either as for or against Til
den, but from what can be learned it seems
to be favorable to Tilden. No expression of
preference was made in the Convention, no
speech btiug made except by the Chairman,
who only discussed general principles.
KORTII CAROLINA— GREENBACK.
Greejjsdoko, May — The State Na
tional Greenback Convention was held here
today. Only four delegates were present,
one of that number a Republican Postmaster.
Congressman De La Matyr did not make his
appearance. An Executive Committee for
the State was chosen, with J. R. Winston, of
Milton, as Chairman. Delegates to the Na
tional Convention at Chicago June 9th were
appointed. They go instructed. No other
business was transacted.
The Missouri AnlKThlrd-Tcrnicrg. '
St. Louis, May — Trfe arrivals during
the day of delegates to the auti-third-term
Republican Convention have been only mod
erate, but the local committee have advices
which indicate a full attendance when the
Convention meets at noon to-morrow. The
sentiment of the delegates already assembled
seems almost unanimous in favor of making
it the sole purpose of the Convention to give
adequate expression to the hostility which is
believed by the delegates to exist nj the Re
publican party against the nomination of
General Grant to a third term. A string ef
fort will be made to prevent the name of any
other Presidential candidate being mentioned,
and to prevent the expression of any prefer
ence as to who the Republican nominee shall
A dispatch was received by the Executive
Committee to-day from George William Cur
tis, expressing his fullest sympathy with all
Republicans in opposition to a third term,
for which no good reason can be urged.
A letter will be read to the Convention
from Secretary Schurz, in which the follow
ing occurs : " You need not fear that I shall
remain silent and inactive when the real tug
of war comes, if it does. As to my post of
duty under such circumstances my mind is
fully made up."
I'oHlios in Ohio— Preparing for the Con
Columbus,' May sth. — A large number of
delegates are arriving by each train to attend
the State Democratic Convention to-morrow.
Thurman, Payne, Tilden and Jewett all
have headquarters, and have busy friends
who are working hard in favor of their favor
ites. Congressmen Hurd, Lefevre, Atber
ton, Finley and McMahon are already here.
Thus far the factions seem very peaceably
disposed, and are evidently disposed to use
honey rather than vinegar to attract atten
tion to those they champion. It looks now
as if all factions will combine to prevent the
Convention from instructing for Thurman.
It is very probable that the Convention will
indorse Thurman, bnt allow delegates to go
to Cincinnati uninstructed. An attempt to
do more than this, as the matter looks now,
will be opposed by the friends of all other
candidates. Ex-Governor Bishop's friends
are openly working for Tilden, hoping in this
way to gain support for Bishop for Vice-
Sew Hampshire Republicans.
Concord, May sth. — The hotels are
crowded to-night with politicians and dele
gates to the Republican State Convention,
which meets heie to-morrow. As far as can
be judged to night, Blame will have three
fifths of the delegates. The opposition will
be divided between Grant and Sherman.
William E. Chandler's name will head the
Now Jersey Republicans.
Trenton, May sth.— large number of
delegates to the Republican State Convention
have already arrived. The feeling is in fa
vor of sending Blaiue delegates, but the im
pression is that they will not be instructed.
Dover, May sth.— The Republican State
Convention will meet here to-morrow. The
indications are that though the delegates to
Chicago will not be instructed, a delegation
unanimous for Blame will be chosen.
S.i .11: t at (lie Old Home or Abraham Lin
SrniNGFiKU), May sth.— General Grant
was tendered a public reception at the State-
House at 1 i". M. to-day, and welcomed to the
late home of Abraham Lincoln — whose
monument he had visited in the forenoon by
ex-Governor Palmer, who dwelt on his mili
tary career and success. General Grant made
a brief response.

The Doimelly-FlDlrT-SprlßKrr Case.
Washington, May sth.— Representative
Manning continued his testimony to day be
fore the Donnelly-Finley investigating com
mittee. Donnelly was recalled to establish the
date of the Democratic caucus, and read from
his diary an entry of the 3d of March : " The
Democrats of the committee hold a caucus
to-morrow. Everything appears to be right."
In reply to a question why he preserved the
memorandum in Springer's handwriting,
Manning replied, " Because I had received
an intimation that notwithstanding Spring
er's statements to me to the contrary, he
(Springer) intended to vote against Beating
Donnelly, and I therefore, suspecting him,
preserved the paper." In the course of the
examination Manning stated that he had not
charged Springer with corruption, but that he
had been t'uilty of duplicity.
General Sberldan on Rapid Marching.
New York, May sth.— The World says :
General Sheridan stated at General War
ren's Court of Inquiry on Governor's Island
yesterday that on the Oregon frontier he had
marched infantry at the rate of five milea an
hour for twelve continuous hours. This was
by way of shewing that Warren, at the bit
tie of Five Forks, fell short of doing his
duty in marching six miles in two hours over
exceedingly muddy roads on a dark night.
The World thinks that the Oregon walk was
a "go-as-you-please " affair, and intimated
that if Sheridan's rile were subjected t.i the
game searching cross-examination that Sheri
dan's walk elicited yesterday, it would not
rest on much better foundation.

Socialists that they had any connection with
Russian anarchists. He declared that he ac
cepted connection, but spoke of cmrse only
for himself, not knowing how far his col
leagues agraed with him. He wan convinced

The Deficit In Ihc Afghan Finances.
Losdos, May sth.— The difference be
tween the financial results in India and those
promised in the budget statement published
in February, id from £3,000,000 to £5,000,000.
The financial member of the Viceroy's
Council grossly underestimated the expenses
of the Afghan war.
The Indian Government sent dispatches to
the Secretary of State for India, stating that
the cost of the Afghan war will probably ex
ceed estimates by £4,000,000. The dispatch
declares the Military Department solely
blameable. They believed the estimates Buf
ficient and advised their adoption by the Fi
London, May sth.— The Standard, in an
editorial article commenting on the deficit in
the Afghan finances, Bays : There seems to
be, unfortunately, no room for doubt that
the recent glowing financial calculations of
the Indian Government have proved, to use
a gentle expression, untrustworthy. The
Indian budget was laid before the Legislative
Council at Calcutta on the 24th of February,
aud showed the improvement which Sir Staf
ford Nortbcote, Chancellor of the Exchequer,
has led Parliament to expect. Sir John
Straclcey unfolded a series of surpluses which
changed the aspect of the former estimates,
and seemingly made clear that the sums at
the disposal of the Government of India,
after meeting all the usual demands of ex
penditure, would be sufficient to clear off the
whole coet of the Afghan war. The figures
of Sir John Strackey'a budget were discussed
during the elections with much interest, and
were generally accepted aa a proof that the
condition of our fellow-euhjectii in India wa<
by no means as bad as painted. Some tim •
after the budeet was produced, the Government
at Calcutta discovered that there would be a
glaring discrepancy between the financial
results actually realized and those promised
by the Viceroy's Chancellor of the Ex
chequer. The discrepancy U variously stated
at from three to five million pound.*. Either
sum would unfortunately be large enough to
throw all the finances of the empire into con
fusion, at least for the present, and if the
deficiency exists the special argument
by which Sir Stafford Northcote and Mr.
Stanhope justified the policy of the late Gov
ernment falls to the ground. Of details
nothing is known at nrrsent, and nothing
will be known until Parliament is sgaiu as
sembled and the question on the. subject has
been answered by the Marquis of Hurting
ton. It MOM certain that the strange mis
calculating arose through underestimating
the cost of th-> Afghan war. It is alleged
that in India Sir John Strackey'i view of the
matter was opposed by high military au
thorities, who were better able to compute
the rate at which money is being spent in
Afghanistan. The most favorable view which
can be taken of the case, if the discrepancy
is as great as has been asserted, is that there
was extreme recklessness or gross negligence
on the part of the financial authorities in
