in the case of Fitz John Porter was held to-day
at Governor's Island. Th judge advocate
opened the government's side of the case with
a long and exhaustive address. leviewed
the original trial, and was very severe on Gen.
Porter, saying that his defense had alwajs
been a series of afterthought, and that he had
adopted the theory to which he had attempted
to fit the facts. maintained Porter's new
evidence had really not thrown any
light on the question, and that theie
were several discrepancies and contradictions
in his testimony. dwelt at some length on
the subject of McDowell's connection with the
events in question, and claimed Porter alone
was responsible for the action of the Fifth
corps, and that he would so prove by his wit
nesses and by the documentary evidence he
would submit. also claimed that the wit
nesses he would bring forward would gi\ a
different view of Porter's conduct than has thus
far been received through the evidence of ac
cused, and that his conviction by the court
martial was proper and the sentence merciful.

Peabody Educational Fund.
NEW YORK, Oct. 2.The annual meeting of
tho Peabody educational fu nd took place to
day and was attended by the President and
Secretary of State Evarts. Robert E Winthrop,
president of the board, made a short address
congratulating the members upon the presence
of President Hayes who had broken away from
his official duties to show his interest in educa
tional matters. Notwithstanding the serious
shrinkage of their income, he said, the cause
of free public schools at the South had made
most encouraging progress the past year, and
while they could do nothing as a board to aid
or relieve the sufferings of their Southern
brethren while the plague is raging, they could
do and had done and were doing not a little to
promote that intellectual and moral im
provement which must sustain them in
every trial and be the basis of their future
prosperity and welfare. Th year just closed
has been one of unusual pecuniary embarrass
ment to all the schools of the South, and while
every department of education has been affect
ed, that relating to the employment of teach
ers and public officers haB suffered most.
Cheapening the labors of men on whom the vi
tality of the system depends is a more danger
ous experiment than is generally supposed.
The scholarships established last year have had
excellent effect. I the Peabody Normal sem
inary of Louisiana one-fourth of all the female
teachers of New Orleans, during many years,
have been educated. Th following figures

MADISON. Oct. 2.Prof. C. Haskins, of
Milwaukee, one of the members of the board
of charities and reform, has sent to Gov. Smith
a protest against the report of the board white
washing the Delavan scandal business. Prof.
Haskins giveB good and cogent reasons for his
protest, and winds up with the claim that
DeMotte should have been dismissed, because
the evidence shows he was too weak and silly
to be entrusted with the charge of that institu
tion. And further, for the good of the deaf
and dumb asylum, every teacher who was in
any way connected with the asylum should
have been at once dismissed.

LONDON, Oct. 2.The City of Glasgow bank
closed its doors to-day. It liabilities are
stated to be $50,000,000. Th liability of the
shareholders is unlimited. One hundred pound
shares of the bank were dealt in yesterday at
over 200, and within at 237. Th bank was
established in 1839, and has from fifty to sixty
branches. This is the heaviest bank failure in
Scotland since 1857, when this concern also'
suspended. Other Scotch banks were asked
for assistance, but after examining the books
at a meeting yesterday refused to do more than
redeem the note circulation of the City of
Glasgow bank, which is stated at $3,250,000.
The failure has caused great excitement
throughout Scotland and in the London stock
exchange, where there was a fall in Scotch
railway securities in consequence of the pres
sure of Scotch holders to sell. The failure of
the bank is generally attributed to its resources
being locked up in bills, shares and debentures
of various kinds that were not readily convert
The failure is very importantnot less than
a national disaster but, as usual in such cases,
it has been foreshadowed in innumerable oc
currences. I is hardly likely it will do more
than bring down the commercial firms which
are involved in the bill transactions which have
overwhelmed the bank.
The failure is believed to have been in con
sequence of large advances on American secur
ities in grain and real estate, the values of
which have largely deposited.
A dispatch from Glasgow states causeB of the
failure of the City of Glasgow bank, are re
ported to have arisen from an advance of
6,000,000 to four firms of East India
merchants who have been unable to meet their
engagements. Much sympathy is felt
for the unfortunate shareholders of
the bank. Much stock is held
by ladies and gentlemen who lived retired on a
moderate competence, and now fand themselves
reduced from circumstances of comfort to ab
solute poverty. Seven hundred and fifty per
sons employed by the bank and its branches
are affected by the failure.

The Hanlan-Courtnetf Boat Race.
A great crowd gathered at Lachine, near
Montreal, yesterday, to witness the great row
ing contest between Hanlan and Courtney, only
to be disappointed, a strong wind roughening
the water to snoh an extent it was impossible
to row the race and it was postponed until to
day. A preliminary dispatch says: Hanlan's
stock has gone up rapidly, as there is an out
look for rough water. A bet has just been made
of $1,500 on Hanlan to $600 on Courtney.
There is a great crowd here, and great disap
pointment is felt. Te steamers loaded with
people are opposite the grand stand, and the
shores are lined with people.
Another dispatch says: A immense throng
of spectators is gathering from all directions.
Boats, trains and vehicles of all kinds are
arriving at a point of the race, bringing heavy
loads. There is a strong current in one part of
the coarse, and when it blows even a little, this
part of the course is extremely rough. Han
lan's friends and backers are here by the thou
sands, and the betting is all in favor of the
Canadian-Irishman. Atr this hour scarcely a
better can be found for Courtney. A the lat
ter's headquarters there was no excitement, his
backers being very quiet or very few Hi
nearest friends, however, quietly express great
confidence in their favorite. They predict that
more people will be surprised at the result of
this race than at any contest that
has taken place in American waters.

parative statement of receipts and expendi

NATIONAL BANE REDEMPTION.
The effects of the recent circular of the sec
retary of the treasury providing that charges
for transportation of national bank notes for
redemption shall be paid by banks remitting
the notes instead of those issuing th em as here
tofore, have already been noticed at the de
partment. Receipts for redemption which ran
up to a million dollars a day during last Sep
tember have fallen off to $400,000 to-day, and
most of these notes were shipped to the treas
ury prior to Oct. 1st, when the circular took
effect. The banks in neighboring cities rushed
their notes to the treasury prior to the 1st of
October, and now receipts from them are very
small. From Ne York, to-day, there was but
one package of $1,000 dollars, while the re
ceipts from that city have usually reached
$100,000 daily and oftentimes double that sum.
It is thought receipts for red emotion will soon
be less than $100,000 daily instead of half a
million dollars as heretofore.

REDWOOD FALLS, Sept. 25, 1878.
To the Editor of the Globe.
Major Strait arrived here to-day, and im
mediately called a council of war at Mr.
Wallen's office to estimate his majority in
this county. There were present the two
land officers, postmaster Bill Kelly, and lit
tle Dick, the banker. Wallen was called to
the chair (th same that thought he was
running for jud ge last fall). Wallen is great
on the chair, as it gives him an oppor

that Bed wood county was all right for 3 0 0
majority for the Major. I was true that
some time ago it looked a little blue when
so many of the Republicans went over to
the Greenbackers, but since his (Wallen's)
letter declining to be a candidate
for judge of probate on the Republican
ticket the party had gained strength enough
to warrant the prediction that Redwood was
goad for 30 0 majority. warmed up and

Little Dick and our county attorney have

going back on him, and that the Norwegians
were shaky, and that he feared he could not

judging from his canvass for himself last

expenses, if he speaks this fall. I was final

that little Dick the banker should

CONDON AND MELODY, RELEASED
FENIANS, IN NEW YORK CITX,
The Killing of Sergeant BrettTheir Trial
and ConvictionCondon Reprieved on the
Day Before That Fixed as His Last on
rNew York Sun, Sept. 30.]
Two men stood on the deck of the Mosel
as she steamed up the harbor yesterday and
cast curious glances toward the shores. One
was of a medium height, spare in flesh, but
with a frame that indicated that he id once
been heavier, dark eyes, and rough, furrowed
face, on which the stubble of two days'
beard showed itself. His countenance was
frank, open, and marked by a cheerfn
earnestness of the sort which make
friends at sight. His companion was
slightly taller, with gray hair whitened al
most to snow, and a reddish-gray moustache.
Both men wore black diagonal coats of the
Prince Albert cot, black broidcloth trousers,
green neckties, and stiff hats. The green
ties were conspicuous, and it required no
farther information to point them out as the
fenian exiles, Edward O'Meagher Condon
and Patrick Melody, sentenced to death for
the killing of Sergea nt Brett at Manchester,
in 1867, and whose release by the Bntisa
government has lately been chronicled. Mr
Condon smoked a cigar abaft the gangway
as the ship passed Bay Ridg e, feasting his
eyes on the surroundi ng scenery.
You had a narrow escape, Mr Condon?"
"Yon may well say that, sir, the exile
said, toying with his cigar.
S near that
my coffin was made and ready for me. I re
member the old governor of Manchester
prison telling me that night when a man
got so near death as that, he never escaped.
It was only a few hours before Allen and the
others were executed that a respite was
brought from London for me by a queen's
messenger. I was told afterward that the
cabinet had debated my case the night be
fore, and that they stood six tef death and
six for reprieve. But come to my state
room and let present you to Mr.
Mr. Condon led the way to a neat state
room on the port side, where his companion
joined him. O the unmade bed was a long
black valise containing the entire worldly
goods of the sudden ly released man. There
he told briefly the story of his captivity.
"We never meant to kill poor Sergeant
Brett, that was shown by the evidence of
their own witness es on the trial. There was
only nine of us, all told, that attacked the
prison van containing Kelly and Deazy,
while there were more than that number of
police and detectives. One squad of them
sat on the roof of the van and one went be
fore. W fired at them, mostly with blank
cartridges, to scare them away, and they all
ran. W couldn't get th door of the
van open, and there was a hole
in the top of it. I the melee
a pistol shot was fired by some one, which
entered the ventilator over the door and
killed Brett, who happened to be standing
before it. Then th^y unlocked the door and
let us get Kelly and Deazy. After the affair
was all over I stayed at the rear to get the
handcuffs off Deazy, and that *as how I was
taken. I hammered with a brick that I had
picked up, and afterward with a stone, but I
couldn't get them off, and at last the Phil
listines came up and captured me.. I was
taken, with a lot of others concerned in the
attempt, before a whole bench of magis
trates, fifteen or twenty of them, and com
mitted for trial under the name of Shore.
It wasn't safe to give your own name unless
you knew who you were telling it to."
"In the first trial we were hancuffed two and
two. I was very sick, and my lawyer, Ernest
Jones, refused to plead while I was mana
cled in that conditio n. There was a strong
force of troops about the town, among oth
ers the Fifty-seventh regiment, which con
tained a good many Irish. The authorities
didn't think it safe to trust them, so they
sent to Aldershot for another regiment or
two. The government sent down a special
commission to try us consisting of two of
its picked justices, Justice Blackburn pre
siding. That man was sent down to hang
s, and I since understand they have made
him a lord for it. Then they had any num
ber of thieves and disreputable persons who
were tempted to swear against us. Twenty
sev en of us were tried for murder, and
Justice Blackbnrn ruled that as it was
concerted attempt, every man of
the whole number was liable to be hanged
for the shooting of Brett. Ah that judge,
although he is a baron now, well deserves to
be called BlacKburn. was black by
name and black by nature. Well, they sen
tenced five of us to die and you know the
rest. McGurd got off, and through the ef
forts of the American representatives and
others I was reprieved. A first it was al
most as bad as deaththe uncertainty as to
wheth er I would be allowed to live after all
or not. When they finally concluded to
commute my sentence I was taken to Mill
bank prison, as they do with all of them.
Then it was ten years at Portlandyears
enough to break down a good many men.
I know it would have broken down me if I
had not a powerful constitution. A for
Melody, you have only to look at his hair to
see what it has done for him."
During the early part of Condon's im
prisonment, he says, an attempt was made
by the home secretary, Gathorne Hardy (no
Lord Cranbrook), to induce him to assume
an humble and submissive attitude, to ad
mit that he had committed a great crime,
and to beg for mercy at the hands of the
government. was told that the home
secretary, was willing to take an interest in
his case if he would manifest a proper spirit.
These overtures were steadily and firmly re
pulsed. Condon, believing that he had done
nothing wrong in tryi ng to rescue his old
companion-in-arms, because it had resulted
in the killing of an innocent man by one of
the rescuers. replied to the home secre
tary's offer that he saw nothing to regret in
what he done, even though it had entailed
apparently life-long imprisonment on him.
After that he kept the prison officials at a

killing of Brett, and was arrested in con

greatest regret is that he never had anything
to do with the rescue. was convicted on
the testimony of five witnesses, who, it is
said, the government knew to be perjmers.
They were forced to convict Melody, how
ever, because the testimony of the five had
been used to hang the other three, and a
refusal to employ it would have been equiva
lent to confessing that the latter had been
judicially murdered. Melody's sentence of
death was commuted immediately, the gov
ernment never having intended to hang him.
