As aurpiibing as it may seem, Stanley

Jay Gould, is too tempting.
THE bill to repeal the bankiupt law has
been passed by the Senate, after the adop

Should Ignatieft's influence prove the
stronger, war will almost inevitably result.
W E have not heard anything for several
days relative to Mr. Beecher's proposed suit

Tho fellow Mix, who was to supply the con

NOTWITHSTANDING the I emark?ble liberal

THE House of Representatives was yester
day again comparable to a bear garden.

Speaker should bo furnished with a birch

IT IS nearly a week since Mr. Hayes took
a trip anywhere. It is time ho went to see
somebody. A guilty conscience evidently
needs no accuser, and he does not feel easy
relative to his retention of an office to which
everyone knows he was not elected. Hence
he avoids the actual occupincy of the White
House as much as possible. He will ulti
mately go forth a wanderer upon the earth.
IF the property owners do their duty,
there will be no trouble in securing the air
and hour line railroad to Minneapolis. The
Milwaukee parties who are here have the
means to build the load at once, if the right

property and can afford to give a mere trifle,
to add a hundred per cent, to the value of
what remains, to decide whether the line
shall be built at once, or longer delayed.
WHEN revenue officers are hunting up
whisky frauds they are careful to let tho de

a Mr. Wolf, with whose discharge of the

the dirty jobs and political conspiracies of
the carpet-baggers in Louisiana, and could
disclose the true inwardness of the radical
regime in that long suffering State. Since
the Packard gang were driven from author

Hayes with threats and prayers to give him
an office. At last the fraudulent President
has assigned him the lucrative place afore

SECTARIAN CONFLICTS IN CANADA.
There is a strong probability that the 12th
day of next July will see bloody work in Mon
treal. Against the entreaties of Protestant
clergymen, against the advice of Protestant
laymen who are not Orangemen, and against
the judgment of at least a few members of
their organisations, the Orange societies
have resolved to make their parade through
the streets of Montreal, in honor of the
aimiversa ry of the battle of the Eoyne. In
addition, tho Orangemen of Ontario have
announced tkeir intention of going in groat
numbers to Montieai to assist their "breth
ren" in cat of a riot. On the other hand,
the Catholic Irishmen and various French
Canadian Catholic societies in Montreal, are
determined that the Orange parade shall not
be made in peace. Either side can muster a
ijost formidable force, enough for a very
respectable army. The Catholic party
claim that fifty thousand men can be put in
line, and that if more are needed they will
come in thousands from the United States.
Both parties would go into a fight with a
good deal of Biucere enjoyment.
In view of this serious aspect of affairs
the Dominion government is considering
what can be done to avoid the impending
conflict. Mr. Blake, one of the leading
members of Parliament on the ministerial
side, has introduced a bill providing that
when in the opinion of the ministers riotous
outbreaks are likely to occur in any district
a proclamation shall be issued declaring the
carrying of dangerous weapons to be an of
fence punishable by imprisonment. So far
as it goes this measme is well enough, but
we doubt its efficacy to prevent the Orange
men and Catholics from meeting in deadly
encounter. A conflict begun by unarmed riot
ers would speedily be converted into a battle by
fully equipped armiea, for the bill of Mr.
Blake does not provide for domiciliary visits
in search of weapons, and the adherents of
either combative faction will take care that
arms are within their reich. It would seem
that the Dominion or local authorities must,
in order to preserve the peace, either forbid
the arade absolutely, or provide such a
force of troops as will be able to repress any
indications of pugnacity.
On this side of the boundary line tho sym
pathies of the people for ihe opposing fac
tions in Canada are likely to be divided by
sectarian prejudices. The truth of the mat
ter is that both of the disturbing elements
in Montreal and elsewhere in the Dominion
aie utterly undeserving of anything but con
demnation. The Orangemen, and especially
the younger members of that faction, who
are known as Young Britons, are as bigoted,
intolerant and reckless in the use of violence
as any set of men that ever existed. The
Young Britons are in great measure what
we would call "roughs." A street fight is
their ideal of pleasure. They know
no other way to convert people to their ways
of thinking, if wo mey credit thorn with
thinking, than by smashing heads with
biick-bats. It id this lowdy gang that are
now so anxious to parade in honor of their
religion! The existence of this body of
youths, (for most of them are under twenty
yeais of age,) and their fierce desire to cele
brate the triumph of Protestantism in Ire
land are all the more preposterous because
but few of the Young Britons ever set foot
on Irish soil, and many of them have not
even that interest in the ancient Irish dis
putes which might come from ancestral an
The unruly inclinations of the Orange
men aie met with equally reprehensible bit
terness and intolerance by the Canadian
Catholics. It is due to tho latter to say that
they were not the originators of the contro
versy. The feud of centuries ago was first^.
renewed in Canada by the Orangemen, and
for the savage chaiacter that the dispute has
now assumed the Young Britons are primari
ly and mainly responsible. But the Catho
lics are now in a frame of mind that will
heed neither right nor reason. Their pas
sions are seething with hatred to their oppo
nents, and their respect for law is cast to the
Both of these desperate factions invoke
the name of religion, but both of them are
a disgrace to the sects to which they severally
belong, as well as detestable nuisances to
the rest of the community. If they were
tied neck and heels, and ttirown into the St.
Lawrence, Canada would be belter off. It
would be the extreme of folly for citizens of
this country, Catholic or Protestant, to ex
hibit any feeling in favor of either of these
quarrelsome mobs. Wo want no introduc
tion of their o'd-world controversies.

O'Donovan of Brooklyn says: "As for having
one hundred thousand men armed and equip

the government of the United States can not
do that. However, the days have gone by for

the opportunity by creating the difficulty."

FOREIGN GRAIN MARKETS.
A General .Decline In Prices Owing to the
More Hopeful Political Situation.
LIVEBPOOL, May 10.A leading grain circular
says: During the past week wheat exhibited
a daily increasing depression, the more hopeful
view of the political situation inducing buyers
to suspend operations. The provincial mar
kets held since Tuesday generally quoted a de
cline of six pence to a shilling per quarter,
with an extremely limited demand on spot.
During the 6ame interval business moved very
slowly, transactions being merely retail at
barely Tuesday's currencies. Maize is in mod
erate inquiry, but prices rather favor buyers.
There was only a small attendance at this roai
ket to-day. Wheat dull at two pence per cental
decline for both red and white. Flour, six
pence per barrel and a shilling per sack cheap

there was some pressure to sell, and price*, weie
further reduced six pence per quarter.

is described as being as handsome as a pictuie,
is being trained in a quiet way, and said to be
developing a slashing gait. The attention of
Messrs. Simonds and Clough is invited to the
association of breeders in the organitation of a

company for their colt in that race, and it is to
be hoped that they will early signify their in

As considerable attention has lately been
directed to horseback riding, the following ar
ticle on "Saddle Gaits" is published for the
benefit of such of our readers as are interested
in the subject. The writer, though a resident
of Kentucky, has many friends in St. Paul,
who will vouch for him as authority on the
subject of which he treats, and who will
not be suiprised to learn that he
handles the pen as readily as the "ribbons.'
Although not so universally popular as in for
mer 3 ears, riding on horseback continues to be
practised largely by gentlemen of leisure, as a
means of exercise and enjoyment and, in many
parts of the country, as a convenient means of
locomotion on matters of business.
In many portions of the United States this
health-giving exercise is becoming a highty
fashionable amusement among ladies and
gentlemen of culture and refinement, and we
hope that the taste may become universal. But,
in order to make horseback riding a really
comfortable and pleasurable exercise, a good
saddle-horse, thoroughly broken, is requisite,
and such are e*tiemely difficult to fiud.
As something of a guide in the selection of a
horse, as well as in the training or him for
such a purpose, we present below an analysis of
what are known as saddle gaits. It is not to
be supposed that every saddle horse will pos
sesses all, or even a considerable number of
these ways of going. A large pro
portion of them g but one or two gaits, that
may be preferred by the owner, no other be
ing required. The possession of several differ
ent gaits by a single animal is rather excep
tional than otherwise but a first class saddle
horse is expected to go, at command, eight dif
ferent gaits, and in proportion as he approaches
this standard, his value for such purposes is
There are, perhaps, one or two additional
fancy gaits that are sometimes displayed, but
they may be considered as rather accidental
variations of the more distinct ways of going
under the saddle, depending largely on the
conformation of the horso, and the manipula
tion of the reins in the hands of a skillful
rider. The walk, trot, pace and galop, are the
cardinal or natural gaits, and need no descrip
tion to be generally understood. The artificial
and acquired gaits are as follows:
FirstThe Fox Trot is a slight modification
of the true trot, and perhaps to call it a
"broken" trot, in which the fore foot touches
the ground an instant in advance of the
diagonal hind foot, will convey as correct an
understanding of it as a most elaborate de
scription of the alternate placing of the feet.
It has the slowest limits of the artificial gaits
and is an all-day gait. Its range is generally
from four to six miles per hour, though oc
cassionally a horse may show a rate of seven
miles an hour. It is the utility gait of the
general saddle horse, and every one worthy
the name is expected to have it. At this gait a
loose rein is always used, and the horse is apt
to carry hib head low. Drivers of trotting
horses in harness will recognize it as a step fre
quently taken for two or three strokes by horses
just in the act of slowing into a walk.
SecondThe running walk is also a modifi
cation of the true trot, but in this case the
head is carried higher and the hind foot
takes the ground just in advance of
the diagonal fore foot, breaking the concussion.
A closer rein is generally held than in the fox
trot, and the pace is a faster one, and may be
carried to a three minute gait before the horse
is forced out of it. This is a more showy gait
fiian the fox trot, and in it the poise of the
horse is such as to give him more of a climbing
action in front. In the running walk the
cadence of the footfalls is not unlike that of
the ordinary walk quickened, and the feet take
the ground in the same order. It might be de
scribed as a variation of the true walk, by im
parting to it an elastic or bounding quality
in fact, a walk on a run, if such contrary de
scription is admissable. Trotters, in harness,
frequently get away at this gait when started
suddenly, under a firm pull upon the bit, be
fore they settle to the true stroke.
ThirdThe Rack (or Side-Rack as ft is some
times called) is a modification of the true pace,
in which the hind foot touches the ground in
advance of its leading forefoot. This gait ad
mits of a wide range of speedsay from four
miles an hour to faster than a three minute
gait. This is the favorite saddle gait with la
dies, and seems better suited to the side-saddle

such an exaggeration of the Fox-trot as to

be increased to a three-minute gait. It affords
the smoothest seat of all the gaits, because
that portion of the animal which supports the
saddle apparently glides evenly forward, while
each quarter, moving separately, causes none
of that bounding or iolting of the trot or pace.
These four artificial gaits, in connection with
the four natural ones first named, constitute
all the requisite gaits of a trained saddle horse.

BISHOP M'COSKRY'S CASE.
How the Court of Inquiry will be Consti-
tutedThe House of Bishops.
I Detroit News.]
The canon relative to the resignation or
displacement of bishops requires that Bishop
McCoskry's resignation must be accepted by
his peers before he fully casts off the re
sponsibilities of his sacred office. A bishop
in big position may apply to two other
bishops to examine his case, with a view to
ascertaining whether he may demand a
court of inquiry. If these two bishops find
that he has just cause for so doing, they en
dorse his petition for an investigation, and
without their signature the presiding
bishop, to whom the petition or
demand is addressed, cannot
act. If Bishop McCoskry, or his ad
visers, who have apparently acted so far
without due warrant of ecclesiastical law,
conclude to take the proper steps for an in
vestigation, the above course will have to be
followed. The next step taken is by the
presiding bishop, who first looks up the
names of the delegates from this and the
three surrounding dioceseswestern Michi
gan, northern Ohio and Indianato the last
general Episcopal convention.
The delegates to the convention from each
diocese, are eight in numberfour clergy
men and four laymen. The delegates from
this diocese (Michigan) were H. P. Baldwin,
C. C. Trowbridge, H. W. Rogers, and Theo
dore H. Eaton, laymen, and the Rev. Dr.
Worthington, the Rev. Dr. Harris, the
Rev. Mr. Lane, and the Rev. Mr.
Megrath, clergymen. The presiding
bishop selects by lotafter first setting aside
those disqualified by relationship, removal
from diocese, or-other causesfour of each
delegation, namely, two laymen and two
clergymen. It so happens that there are two
of the delegates from this diocese disquali
fied, Mr. Eaton being a relative of Bishop
McCoskry, and the Rev. Mr. Megrath hav
ing removed from the diocese. The sixteen
thus selected constitute a court of inquiry,
who act as a kind of grand jury, oxamine
witnesses, etc., and, if they find a case
against McCoskry, shall so notify the
presiding bishop. The final tribunal
is the court of bishops. Eleven are
selected by lot from the 6eventy-two bishops
in the Protestant Episcopal church, and the
prosecution and defence have each the right
to strike off two names. If either or both
fail to exercise this privilege, the presiding
bishop does it himself. The number being
thus reduced to seven, they are summoned to
attend and hold a court in the diocese where
the trouble originated. From the time of
this notification to the assembling of the
court, not more than six nor less than two
months must elapse.
But it is probable that the trial will come
off in any case, excepting, of course, the
contingency of the bishop's death. A call
has been issued by Bishop Smith for the as
sembling of the House of Bishops in New
York city on the 19th of June next. Al
though there are several matters of import
ance which would necessitate the assembling
of the bishops this year, it is understood
that the McCoskry case has hastened the
call, and there is no doubt that the house
will order a court of inquiry in his case, if
not previously called for.

M. J. O'CONNOB,
Mrs. 3It/ra Clark Oaine*, Having Gobbled
New Orleans and Baltimore, Will Crab
(Washington Telegram St. Louis Republican.]
Either Judge Wardel, of this city, or Mr.
Hutchinson, of New Orleans, will, in a week
or two, go to St. Louis to institute proceed
ings in the United States court for the re
covery of certain property for Myra Clark
Gaines. The estimated value of the prop
erty is 55,000,000, and is claimed under the
same title by which she recently secured an
immense tract in New Orleans, after many
years of litigation. The first duty of her
attorneys will be to examine the records to
see what portion of the territory covered by
the plat of St. Lonis is embraced in the
land of her father. She cannot designate
any of it except that portion known as the
Southern hotel property. She claims that
the proceedings in the New Orleans
case cover exactly the case of
St. Louis that her father secured the prop
erty on Spanish and French grants, and
that it was transferred by Reff, her father's
executor, as in the New Orleans case. The
decisions of the supreme court have decided
her legftimacy, and that Reff violated his
fiduciary relations, and made a fraudulent
transfer and title. The decision of the
supreme court [Sixth Wallace, delivered by
Justice Davis, now Senator.] held that the
statute of limitations did net hold against
her right. Her attorneys say that as all points
have been decided, all that is necessary in
the St. Louis case is to make a practical
application of them to the
estate of her father, Daniel
Clark. They say that the acts of Congress
in 181G confirming the report of the com
missioners appointed by the United States
to report upon Spanish and Fiench claims
embraced in Missouri and Lomsiann, the
former a territory at that time, will show the
title clear. It will be remembered that after
the final decision of the United States su
preme court in the Louisiana case, Judge
Billings, of the United States court there,
appointed commissioners to make estimates
on the rents and improvements to the prop
erty in addition to the title. These commis
sioners have reported and the judge has af
firmed their report, giving a final judgment
for $4,000,000. Immediately afterwards Mrs.
Gaine3 instituted proceedings in Baltimore
on a claim exactly like the one at New Oi
leaitf and St. Louis. The Baltimore people
in the light of the result at New Orleans
compromised with the claimant before tho
court could act. When Mis. Gaines gets
through with St. Louis she will institute
proceedings in the court of claims for a tract
of land now apart of New Oxleans, which
she claims belonged to her father. In 1H2G
Congress gave Lafayette $200,000 in cash
and a lot of land warrants. His agents lo
cated on the land of her father, and tho gov
ernment allowed this to be done. Lafay
ette's agents afterward sold the land, Mis.
Gaines now goes before the court of claims
for the value of the same which she places at
$6,000,000. When the St. Louis and the
Lafayette cases are finished Mrs Gaines sajs
she will quit.

he found the orrand was a hoax. It has
