SUMNER AND FISII.
Carton Mtory of the Orlcla ef the Trouble.
The Capital contains a long article purport
ing to give a history of the misunderstanding
between Messrs. Sumner and Fish. Some of
tvir. Sumner's friends, while disclaiming any
responsibility tor lis language, aeciare us mala
Jlavermeuts substantially correct. The following
paragraphs contain ine suostance 01 it:
'(Secretary isa ana Mr. tsumner were sworn
into the Senate together, in 1851, and served
some time on the same committee, and the two
became acquaintances indeed, friends. When
General Grant rediscovered Mr. Fish on the
banks of the Hudson, and made him Secretary
of State, the venerable Knickerbocker fled to
(the chairman of Foreign Relations for advice
and help. Mr. Sumner retains letters from
Secretary Fish, asking for the loan of his brains.
lMr. Sumner, who bad meantime had the expe
rience or ine estate Department during the war,
and who never fell out with Mr. Seward or any
IDther gentleman of that department, wrote the
instructions for Mr. Motley hlm?elf, wrote the
.outline of the leading papers on the Alabama
kclalms, and named toe person who should write
the letter ot Instructions to the British Govern
ment reopening those claims. The only other
person Mr. Fish could get to give hfm any as
sistance was Bancroft Davis," etc.
"Mr. Fish and Mr. Sumner, as we have said,
never personally disagreed, even about the Santo
Domingo matter, until the military ring around
General Grant resolved to go into this job. Then
the President made the point with Secretary
Fish that the Senate Committee must be manipu
lated through its chairman. Accordingly, in
the first jreek in June, at y o'clock in the even
ing, Mr. Fish went to Mr. Sumner's house, and
after arguing with him for three hours, or until
after midnight, to cease bis opposition to Santo
Domingo, be said, 'If yon cannot pleaso the Pre
sident in this, if you cannot cease your attacks
npon Santo Domingo, at least get out of the
way. You need not stay in the Senate. There
is the English mission; I oiler it to you it is
vonrs. Go away, and we can carry this'anto
Domingo business behind you.' Mr. Sumner
waived the matter off as the mistake of an old
and blundering friend, and replied: 'Oh, Fish,
we have the best man we can tret now at Lon-
i don, and you want to make no change there.'
Mr. fish left Mr. Sumner s house a baffled,

When it did appear, he dared no more face the
Old Bay State Lion, but sent Senator Patterson
to fathom the shoals, and ascertain what hia
(Fish's') reception would be. When, some days
Kago, Mr. Sumner was asked why Fish did not
come in person to attend to puoiic ousmess, ana

driving Mr. Summer from the head of this com

Attempt to E.cape from the Mew Jeraev Pent
iruiinry. Tbe Trenton State Gazette says: The prison
people were not a little astonished to fiad the
receBt successful experiment of Fox and Storms
repeated yesterday at a very early hour in the
morning. A noted horse thief named White,
from Sussex county, who was confined In tbe
new wing, managed to saw off four bars of his
cell, leaving an aperture of about eighteen
inches, through which he crawled out, and then
was in a position to make further attempts at a
more convenient season. When once out of his
cell he secreted himself under a bread cart in
the cor rider. Here be remained fully three
hours. Three watchmen had passed by
without discovering him, but the eyes of
the fourth happened to be cast to some unusual
object nnder the bread cart. He cocked his
pistol, and pointing it towards the object, ap
proached. What was his surprise to find White
lying as quiet aa & mouse. He commanded him
to get np and march to the centre, which order
be obeyed; and when tbere it was not very diffi
cult to secure him and put him in another cell.
The theory of bin attempt to escape was sup
posed to be as follows: Ue had to dis
pose of two watchmen. His object was
to wait bis opportunity until the watchman
sat down, and, as be supposed, would go
to sleep, and then to muzzle him or despatch
blm. ilis next step would have been to pull a
bell rope and bring the watchman from the
centre. Tbe moment this watchman opened
the irnr be could seize him, rush out, and
fasten him inside. This would have given him
a free and uninterrupted control of tbe centre,
from whence be could have passed out without
much difficulty. It i difficult to see by what
other means be expected to get out from the
place where be was concealed. It would no
!outt have required a desperate ti.tt, bat be
v,ub prepared for that.
The Trlampha.1 Jllnr Thronh Ike Champa
The special correspondent of the London
Times, after mentioning the difficulties he had
to overcome in order to get into the Champs
Ely sees, writes:
At last, at the bottom of the Arenne Fried
land, I succeeded in passing the charmed line,
and saw, looming through the fog. the Arc do
l'Etolle; bnteven before we could distinguish
its outline the distant cheers of the German army
reached ns, a long, continued, unbroken roar,
rising and falling Tike the waves of the ocean,
and as intermittent It was impossible to doubt
what those cheers meant. Thirty thousand Ger
mans were marching in triumph beneath the
arch oh which are chronicled German de
feats, and making it ring with their
shouts of victory. A line of German dragoons
at the top of the avenue again barred our pro
gress, these multiplied precautions being evi
dently necessary to limit as much as possible
the crowd which was attempting to gather. At
this moment the top of the avenue of the Champs
Elysees and the open space near the arch were
nnea witn troops waiting to pass through It, and
a small but silent crowd was collected on its out
skirts. Suddenly we were startlod by a shot,
wbch apparently proceeded from the Germans.
It caused some little emotion among the by
standers. It was evidently fired in the air, and
might, possibly, have been an accident, but the
episode was not reassuring. By de
grees we reached the arch itself and
were witnesses of a spectacle which
no one who was present, be he French, German,
or neutral, can ever forget. The broken ground
beneath the arch had been levelled, and a good
roadway made through it, and along this passed
infantry, cavalry, and artillery, the faces of the
men radiant with an exultation which it Is Im
possible to describe. For this supreme honor
they had endured and bled: but now the dan
gers and hardships of the war had come to an
end. Their faces were turned at last to the
Fatherland, and their first step homewards
was thus made the sign and pledge of their
BuccesB. As the head of each battalion
came under the arch the mounted officers
leading it reined np for a moment, cast one look
np at the list of victories iuscribed overhead, one
glance back to their men, and then, waving
ineir neimets mgn above their beads, gave the
elenal for a ringing cheer. In a second every
beimet was in the air; the horses, startled by the
sudden roar, pranced and reared: their riders,
carried away by the excitement, with heightened
color and Hashing eyes, still waved their hel
mets, while tbe mentraincd their throats with
their shouts of triumph.
The he view of tbe tiermnn Troops on the
ISol do Itvulonae.
The German troops having quitted Paris, the
columns marched by different road into the
heart of the Bols de Boulogne, where the in
fantry baited, piled arm?, took off their knap
sacks, and laid down, many of them to sleep.
Some of tbe bands were playing. At length
came the review, which is graphically described
by a military correspondent of tbe London
The troops were drawn up at first in two lines,
each line being formed of battalions in close
colum. When the Emperor appeared on the
ground and approached the troops hearty
cheers broke forth, but when he came close to
them and they received the order to present
arms there was silence among the men, and
only a confused sound of music, as many bands
at once played the nnthem which we call "God
save the Queen." From line the battalions
broke into column and marched past in quick
time. First came the infantry of tho Guard,
for infantry always march past first in Prussian
parades. Tbe men were thickly bearded, and
seemed warriors every one of them; as was said
by some one, not so much like soldiers as like
well-made men in uulf rin. To all appearance
the war has left their discipline untouched, and
their drees was newer and in better trim than
that of some regiments which marched past two
As each regimental color passed, just flung out
from its staff by the light breeze, the man who
followed bis father's example has steadily made
and improved tbe German army, always pa
tiently waiting for this moment, long delayed,
but come at last, raised bis hand and saluted the
imperial ensigns carried by those vho have won
him his purple.
Upon the whole the review was simple only
a rapid inspection and the march post in quick
time. Each battalion, after salutiug the Em-
Eeror, who stood facing the Grand Stand, with his
ack to Paris, marched down towards the wind
mill ard then towards its quarters on the other
side of the Seine, without cheering or any de
monstration. The Emperor returned to Ver
sailles with his son, the dream of his life being

Attempt to Force a Raelc Vault (Jeapotvder
Tried by the lluralura.
This morning, when one of the clerks in the
employ of the Bank of Commerce arrived at the
bank building, corner of Nassau and Cedar
streets, he found that be could not open the
door. Satisfied that the lock had been tampered
with, a locksmith was sent for, who picked the
lock and the door was opened. Oa entering, it
was found that a bold attempt bad been made
by burglars to force open the doors of the vault,
containing a great amount of treasure, but
happily without success.
The burglars, bad opened the door with a
skeleton key, and drl'led large holes In the door
of the vaults, wnicn tbey ni'ed with powder, in

to the trigger, which cord led out of the front
door, and was pulled when all the burglars
bad left the building. Tbe force of the
explosion forced the vault doors open to the
extent of two Inches, and the concussion was so
loud as to awaken tbe janitor, who slept on the
upper floor of the building, and bis presence
warned tbe burglars not to return. The janitor
found the doors locked, and the burglary was
not discovered until the clerk arrived to open
tbe bank (bis morning. The burglars left be

General Charles M. Prevost, of your city, as the
successor of Collector Moore. This nomination,
it is believed, will give satisfaction to all parties,
and it is undoubtedly intended as a compromise,
which will serve to unite the Kelley and the
Cameron factions. General Prevost is well
known here as a gentleman of unblemished
character .and of excellent business attainment?,
and be has besides a first-rate war record which
entitled him to consideration. He was for two
years Deputy Collector at Philadelphia under
Collector William D. Lewi, so that he
thoroughly understands the routine of the Cus

make an efficient and popular collector.

Enerxetle Effort to Pat Down Gambling In New
York City Moeteen Establishments aad EUht
(landred Iamatea taptnred.
Thel police authorities on Saturday nleht
hauled np as many of the keno establishments
as tbey were able to find in operation by con
certed, simultaneous descents in various quar
ters of the city, ibe rata was caretuuy planned,
was thoroughly executed, and was oa the whole
Superintendent Kelso is deserving of the
greatest praise aud credit for the way in which
he p'anned the whole affair, and that it was net
a complete success is due not at all to him.
Nineteen gambling saloons of various grades
were "pulled." Over eight hundred persons
caught iu the act of playing keno were arrested
and deposited in the several station-bouses.
These comprised men of all classes, ages, and
occupations, and of all degrees . in the social
scale, from the professional blackleg nnd pick
pocket to tbe merchant of untarnished credit.
A rcrntiny of the minutes entered on the
books of tbe police stations afford valuable
food for reflection. The large proportion of the
patrons of games of cbance do not appear to
be gentlemen of wealth ond leloure rich men's
snus according to the popular superstition.
Tbey are poor, bard-working men, on moderate
weekly wages. Tbey are clerks, mechanics,
laboreis, waiters, printers, newsboys, school
boys, even. In nearly every instance they ap
pear to be persous whose station in life affords
them neither tbe time nor the money to devote
to tbe excitements of the game. The majority
appear to be waiters, next, In point of numbers,
come clerks, after that printers. There were
several mere boys.
THE PLAN OF OPERATIONS.
Superintendent Kelso's orders were that each
captain should start out with every available
man in bis precinct, at precisely 1015, and go
for every den witbln reach.
A list of placet to be seized bad been prepared
by Captain McCleary, of the Eighth, and Cap
tain Waltb, of tbe Fourteenth precinct. It
included tbree favorite resorts Nas. 5J5, GOO,
and 613 Broadway and each of these haunts
was tbrciiged with keuo players.
Captain McCleary, of the Eighth, started at
10, instead oi me lime designated, and tne
result was that parties escaping him ran to the
other bouses and carried tbe news, which, of
course, effectually blocked the came wherever
tbey went. The precincts which suffered least
were tbe Fourteenth and Fifteenth, as they,
upon arriving at tbe place they were to "pull,"
found vhem all securely bolted and birred and
