Tho Rescinding ?-ular a General Sur

WASHINGTON, D. Sept. 15.It is difficult
fco explain Seeretaiy Sneiman's latest circular
rescinding previous orderH respecting silver
dollars. Dispatches of anxious inquiry as to
the correctness of the leport that the order
had been rescinded ha\e been received from all
commercial centres. Bankers who had made
arrangements to purchase large quantities of
four per cent, bonds in legal tenders after
Monday, on the basis of the older of Saturday,
the 7th, have seemed particularly anxious, as
the rescinding of the cncular and the conse
quent rise in tho gold premium will
OCCASION CONSIDERABLE .LOSS.
The circular has been more readily acted upon
by banking men on account of the known
opinion of Secretary Sherman. In consulta
tion with bankers in New Yoik city some
weeks ago Hecietaty Sherman had repeatedly
declaied his intention to employ silver dollars
as largely as possible in the work of resump
tion. He there constantly sought to inform
himself by conferences with these bankers as
to the probable effect of free payments of coin,
either silver or gold, or both, and he then made
known the tact he intended to begin payments
flt an early day. That this is true is vouched
for by the most competent huancial authority.
It must be concluded, therefore, that Secretary
Sherman's purpose to commence paying in sil
ver was the
RLST7LT OF MATURE DELIBERATION.
Upon beinLf approached by your coirespondent
to know whether he desiied to make any more
detailed explanation ol his order than appears
upon the face of the circular itself, Secretary
Bheiman replied th.it the circular contained in
substance his icasoiis. The point had been
raised some quarters, he said, without stating
where, that the secretary of tho treasury, under
the existing law, has not authority to exchange
legal tenders tor silver dollais prior to the date
fixed by the resumption act, January 1, 1879.
It is learned from other sources than the sec
retary that objection on thiB score amounted to
a clamorous protest against the older ot Sept.
8th, and that these protests proceed in the
main from those who arc influenced by the
Maine election. Secretary Sherman said that
for himsel. ho had always held the view that
lUOIir TO DISBURSE SILVER DOLLARS
invohed tho light to exchange it for legal
tenders, but as serious doubts had been raised
upon tho subject, ho had decided to rescind the
circulai. It had been reported that the Becre
taiy had changed his views on account of the
opinion of Attorney General Devens, who ar
rived from his Western tup yesterday morning,
but Mi. Shtiman said that Judge Devens is not
himself cntucly clear upon the subject, and
wasn't piepaird to say whether or not the ex
change of silver lor greenbacks could be law
fully made or not. Upon being asked what
means he should t.ike to put the
SILVER DOLLAR IN CIRCULATION,
"Mi. Sherman said that he had full authority
aB they were complete legal tenders) to pay
tj 'iem out for any obligation of the government,
et en including bonds, and that he should pay
tht out in legular disbursements so far as
tha cieditois of the government were willing
to ft 'ceive them. He should not, however, force
pens ioners, or any particular class, to receive
Bilvei dollais if they did not want them.

but what proj Portion of the $10,000,000 would
by this means get into circulation he would not
undertake to onjecture. A banker would be

he was. The order to ree^md was decided upon
at a conference between fctecietaiies Sherman,
Evarts, Schi iziVBd Attorney General Devens.
The treasurer of ibe United States was of opin
ion that had the ore'er been permitted to stand

He is lodged in jail subject to law, and the

him on the spot, but we know that justice
should follow her virtuous path. I am satis
fied that Thomas should hang on the nearest

and in the hands of the committee, smiled and
said: "The express company will attend to the
rest. Tell the public that nothing shall go
wrong that the relief committee can prevent.
This is our second Sunday, and the dumb

people who have so heroically stood by nsin
our hour of peril are represented
by this colored minister of the
Methodist church, who has watched
with Christian vigilance the homes of all. with
out regard to race or previous condition.
These two ministers have performed their work
well. All honor to them. When they come to
grasp us by the hand we feel better and
stronger, and pray in our heart of hearts.
How sorrowful is it that every man is not at
his post. In reading the Bible we find that
Christ shirked no duty but obeyed the will of
the Father, even 'til death. Tell ministers of
the churches that we poor mortals, who stand
here with our lives in our hands, will do our
work as humanity and God dictates. We are
not afraid, and every effort of ours shall go to
relieve sufferers and the poor.

DAYTON, O., Sept. 15.Matilda Stanley,
known as the Gipsy queen and recognized as
such by all the tribes throughout the United
States, was buried at Woodland cemetery in
this city to-day. The queen was a woman of
great influence am ng her race. She died in
Vicksbnrg last winter and her bodj was em
balmed and preserved until the present time
for the funeral. The cemetery was filled with
people, visitors from the surrounding country.
It is estimated that over 25,000 people were
in attendance. Representatives of prominent
gipsies from all parts of the United States and
Canada have been assembling in the city tor
the occasion. The funeral procession was a
mile in length. The ceremony was conducted
by a minister of the United Brethren church,
nnd did not differ from that of a Christian
funeral. At the close an affecting scene oc
curred, the children of the queen throwing
themselves on the grave, and filling the air
with lamentations. Dayton has been for some
time the headquarters of the gypsies in this
country, and the king, husband of the queen,
lives near the city, and owns a large tract of
Republican Politics in Louisiana.
NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 15.The Republican
State convention will assemble in this city on
Monday. Some delegates have arrived from
the parishes, but the representation will gen
erally be by proxy. It seems to be understood
that the action of the convention will be con
fined to an endorsement of the State nomina
tions of the Nationals, whose convention will
meet on Wednesday, according to the pro
gramme of Wells, Anderson and the custom
house leaders. Some comment is excited by
the contemplated abandonment of the Sherman
hard money views by tho Republicans of this
State. The aspirants for the State treasurer
ship are Captain Kenniser, supported by Wells
and Anderson, and Dr. Gardner, of East Baton
Rouge, independent Greenbacker. An effort
has been made to get General Beauregard to
run, but his friends will not accept.
IT LOOKS SUSPICIOUS.
The Arvahjmneut of Rev. Herbert U. Hay-
den for the Murder of Mart/ E. Standard
at Madison, Conn.
[New Haven Special (Sept, 13) to Chicago
There were not so many people at the
trial of Rev. Herbert Hayden to-day, in
Madison, for the murder of Mary E. Stan
nard, but those who were there experienced
a sensation. When Judge Harrison reached
Guilford station in the morning, on the way
to the trial, he was handed a telegram from
Prof. W. C. White, of Yale, saying that he
had found human blood on one blade of
Hayden's knife. Prof. White, who has
had practice in the use of the mi-
croBcope for thirty years, and is professor
of pathology and use of the micro
scope in Yale medical school, was on the way
and he was the first witness. Counsel had
hot words about the knife, the State demand
ing that Prof. White should keep it until
further orders, and the defense asking the
justice to ofder it into the court's hands, so
that they could handle it, and commit Prof.
While for contempt if he did not give it up.
As Prof. White showed that he wished to
examine other parts of the knife, the justice
ruled that it should remain in his custody.
"What have you found upon the smaller
blade?" asked Judge Harrison.
"Blood,'* said the expert.
"Human or animal blood?" said the
I think it is human blood," said the ex
pert and there was a stir in the audience.
Hayden's face turned pale, and then a cold
hard look took the place of his former con
fidence. The knife was taken from Hayden
the day he was arrested. Prof. White said
he could testify that human blood was on
the blade with as much certainty as ever he
had been able to in any similar case. I
have not taken the handle apart," said
he, or examined the .whole of
the small blade or any of the large blade, but
I have found human blood." then gave
a detailed report of his experiments and the
results. then found a fibre of wood on
the blade, and a fibre not of wood. Working
with a solution of sulphate of soda with
caustic potash added, and a microscope of
three hundred diameters, he took from the
notch used to open the blade, first nineteen
and then nine corpuscles of blood. He
made a similar examination of stains on the
stone which is supposed to have been
the weapon, and the girl's bloody sun
bonnet. In the three cases the corpuscles
were the same in appearance and average
diameter. has no doubt but that the
blood on the stone is human. explained
at length tho reasons for his opinion. The
blood on the knife is nearer to human bloc
than any other blood except that of the
monkey or ape. will spend two days
more on the knife, and will examine the
blood found under Mary's body. had
examined the throat wound, and he said
Hayden's knife was such a one as the wound
was probably made by. A skillful
chemist has examined parts of the
body, and proved that no rape
or other coition took place. During a
long cross examination concerning the dif
ference between the blood of animals and
men, he said he could not tell whether the
corpuscles came from a man or child, or
how long they had been on the knife but
with enough corpuscles to get a good aver
age of diameters he could be morally certain
whether it was the blood of a man or an ani
mal. A good deal of time was spent in es
tablishing the history of the knife after the
sheriff took it from HaydBn, who had given
it to him when asked for it without objec
tion or agitation. An effort was made to get
from Dr. E L. Bailey, of Middletown, a state
ment that Hayden asked his advice concern
ing women's troubles just before the murderj
but he said what Hayden said to him re
ferred only to Hayden's family. availed
himself of a physician's privilege, and re
fused to tell what was said also to answer a
question whether anything was said about
pregnancy or suppression of menses. Owing
to the ruling concerning Mary's declaration
nothing could be got out of Mrs. Jane Stud
ley, at whose house Mary was employed just
before the murder, except that the girl be
lieved she was pregnant, and was
much depressed for that rea
son. Mrs. Studley gave her own
reasons for believing she was in such condi
tion, but was not allowed to say in court
what Mary told her, which was that Hayden
was the cause of her trouble, and that she
wanted to home so that he could take care
of her. The rest of the testimony was
mainly from those who went into the woods
and brought the body to her father's house,
and concerning Hayden's actions al that
time, and how he spent the time the after
noon of the murder. had hold of the
head in carrying the body, and was one of
those who favored the suicide theory then.
It was shown that he left his house at 2 p.
M., going toward his swamp, and returned at
4 p. M. When a boy came and told him
and a neighbor of the murder he went
at once to the spot. No witness could testi
fy to any peculiar language or action on his
part except Andrew Hazlett, who met him
the next morning. Hayden asked him if
anyone was suspected, and he said some one
was. Hayden at once went away without
asking who was suspected. Several testified
as to the possibility of Hayden going the af
ternoon of the murder from his swamp to the
place where Mary was- murdered without be
ing seen, and it was not made very plain
whether he could have done so or not. To
night Hayden's guards will be increased in
number, and he will be watched much closer
hereafter. A little testimony will be taken
to-morrow, aad then adjournment until

The claim of Alex. Stewart and Ann J.

who lived at Proctorsville more than thirty
years There was never any acquaintance
between them and Mr. Stewart, and it was
not until some time after his death that it
occurred to them to put in a claim. This
was suggested by a village lawyer named
Chapman, who began to work up the case,
and afterward put it into the hands of Mr.
Kennedy, a lawyer of this city,
During the past summer Alex. Stewart,
70 years old, has been quietly living at his

to come to New York, telling him that Mr.s.
Stewart had sen* for him, and he could be

assured by Mr. Dalrymple, the great farmer,
that the valley of the Red River of the North,
all of which is fertile, is 100 miles in width
and 400 miles long, within our own borders.
This valley alone gives ns 40,000 miles of
productive laud, most of which belongs to
the government. Furthermore. I am satis
fied that in the great region beyond, and
toward the Pacific, there is probably twice as
much more good lands, valuable for agricul

country was necessarily unproductive. But
I learned from Mr Dalrymple that, while the
rainfall does not usually exceed that amount,
nevertheless it all falls during
the growing season, or between
April and September, or just at
the time when it can do the most good.
Neither does it come at ence or in great
storms, as is the case in the region contigu

through the short season in gentle showers,
so that nene of it is lost, the crops getting
the full benefit of every drop."

A STRANGE STORY
Man Abducted from a Net*
[New York Special (Sept. 12) to Ciucinnati En
At two o'clock yesterday morning Henry
Sneider got into a dispute over the payment
of drinks with Wm. McGlory, proprietor of
the Bowery den known as Windsor palace.
The dispute ended in a fight, which resulted
in Sneider's being thrown out of doors with
face pounded and head battered, and hH
whole person besmeared with blood. Tho
police conveyed Sneider to the Chamber
stieet hospital, and arrested McGlory. Snei
der's wounds were pronounced dangerous,
and ha lay in the hospital till yesterday after
noon, wl en a stylish barouche drew up bo
fore the door and two men entered the hos
pital. To the surgeon in charge they repre
sented they were the brother and cousin or
the wounded mn, and wished to remove him
to Bellevue hospital, to have him near bis
relatives. The doctor informed them that it
would be dangerous to remove Sneider, but
finally acceded. Sneider, the doctor says,
was conscious and went along willingly.
I he strangest part ot the story is that the
men were not what they represented.
Sneider's relatives knew nothing whatever
about them, authorized no removal, and
weie amazed when they came to see him at
the hospital to find he had disappeared.
The police were notified and went diligently-^
to work. They succeeded in tracing the car
riage to the Occidental hotel, where the men
stayed a little while, but entered the vehicle
again and were driven off, and no trace of
them since has been found. There is but
one theorythat of abduction, and that
Sneider has been put out of sight till tho
matter can be so arranged that McGlory
won't be prosecuted. McGlory was in court
to-day, and his counsel moved for a dis

manded McGlory, failing his plan. He wiU
