daring performances upon the apparatus

distance of ten feet and seize a cable, the
lower end of which was brought directly
nnder him by assistants. Standing upon a
slender bar cf iron, he essayed the leap;
but, to the horror of those present, he
missed the rope, fell a distance of twenty
six feet, struck the stage, and rebounded
into the orchestra, an appaiently lifeless
mass. Making our way on to the stage,
we lound him stretched npon a stsge sola,
surrounded by his sorrowing brothers,

have been forwarded to pay the soldiers.
On the 1st of May there were more man

have been mustered out and paid. About
200,000 more are either en route to or in
waiting for muster out at the places of

this enormous army have failed to receive
their pay with reasonable promptness. One

FROM NEW YORK.
NEW YORK, August 16.
The Commercial says the market is er
to day than might be expected. Until it
is known what amount of certificates Is
out there will doubtless be great caution in
lendinr- to aU but firms in the best stand
ing. If it were known that tbe issue
reached the largest possible figure, 250,000,
000, there would be some reconstruction,
for it would be clear there must be heavy
losses and failures somewhere. The pro
bable extent of the issue will not be known
until it is aecertainel whether anything
can be obtained from Ketch um, Son &
Co. It is understood that Ketcoum has
said he would be able to pay fifty cents,
on the dollar of his liabilities. We are not
aware whether that is supposed to include
those on the account of Edward Ketch
urn's forgeries. We hear of some cases of
the selling of collaterals.
It is rumored that a firm in the stocks
and gold business has failed. It requires
The Post states the losses of Ketchum,
Son & Co , by the abstraction of bonds
and other securities, is two and a half or
three millions of dollars. The name of the
firm was only used once by young Ketch
um, and that on the dy of his flight when
he obtained on a check $300,000.
The losses of Mr. Graham will foot up
to over a million of dollars.
Brokers and other persons share in
losses in sums from $40,000 to $150,000.
Four million dollars is the tamest state
ment of the total loss that, it is thought,
the figures will finally show.

General Steedman has issued an order
providing that in absence of civil courts in
localities where no agent of the Freedmen's
Bureau is established, r.U questions of
wares and debts between freed men and

be declared void if procured by fraud.
Provision is also made ier compensation to

Vagrants and: idlers are to be arrested and

MOVEMENT OF SPECULATORS.
NEW YORK, August 16.
The failure of the firm of Ketehum &
Co. have caused a perfect rush ol stock
speculutors from the watering places to

heavy losers. An immense aeiegnuuu ui

transactions of young Ketchum is being

yesterday to search tba steamer Asia lor
Ketchum, and will probably proceed to
Halifax to catch him in case ne went over

fined in the city.

The stock jaarket is calmer after yeeter-

that the storm may not yet be past. Tbe

The extent of the loss ia not known, but it
will probably reach two and a half mil
lions. Owing to the extensive forgeries of
Ketchum there is a general reform now
being inaugurated in some of the city banks.
Oa Wall street to-day no checks were
paid without being properly testified. In
one instance a broker, who applied lor
$5,000 dollars, was refused till the books
were examined to ascertain if his accounts
justified the loan. It was found that he
had overdrawn his account to the amount
i The last check presented by Ketchum
on Monday was drawn in the firm's name,
and was on a city bank for $60,COO. The
check was presented in person by young
Ketchum, who requested that the money ba
given him in large bills. There being a
small amount of these on hand, he was.
paid mostly IHTmall tiiUs. ' This it it be
lieved is all tha money he carried away
with him. Some of the envelopes in
which bonds were kept are found neatly
folded and tied, and laid away as though
complete, although their contents are no
longer to be found, and there is no evi
dence of their existence.
Ketchum's gold and stock specula
tions are the sole cause of his ruin. Once
or twice his father was positively assured
that if tbe firm was not engaged in such
operations his son certainly was, and on
speaking of these facts they were denied by
Edward in a letter which he wrote before
his flight. He g-ive an account of his
operations as partner in the banking house.
Tbe names of the parties with whom he
had hypothecated the missing securities
were stated. Edward gave directions in
regard to the disposition of papers and the
course to be pursued by the firm.
Tbe abstracted securities were not en
tirely property of dealers with the banking
house, but belonged in part to the house.
The account is not complete and can't be
within a day or two.
As already reported Ketchum & Co. are
placing in the bank to the credit of senders
all funds sent to tbe firm.
A vigorous search is being made for
Ketchum. It is thought he has gone to
Halifax to take the steamer for Europe.
The Commercial Advertiser says that in
tbe case of capture he will not be pun
ished. His father will not prosecute him,
and in case the sums drawn on forged
checks are paid up other parties will take
The Times says the proper business of
Ketchum Jt Son was brokers and bankers.
Three or four months ago they were great
bears in railway stocks. Of late they have
been great bulls in gold. They suddenly
revived their position in railway stocks,
first covering their previous short contracts
at a heavy loss, street rumors said at time
from $1,600,000 to $2,000,000. The recent
upward movement in gold was of their en
gineering. It was to weigh heavily npen
the money market because there was no
export demand for gold.
GOLD IN THE TREASURY.
Tbe custom house demand went only
partially ahead of July interest on the
public debt. About the middle of that
month the customs demands promised to
accumulate gold rapidly in the Treasury,
already holding about $35,000,000, and it
was believed this demand would so con
tinue through the month of August as to
advance the price of gold in open market,
from the comparative scarcity of the tup
ply outside of the large sum already mo
nopolized by this speculation. It was
thought that the Secretary of the Treasury
had determined to convert a portion cf bis
surplus gold into currency at market rates,
and it was also thought that speculators
bad resolved at any r oat to take all the
gold the government would sell and advance
tbe price. These fact have served to
render the commission house unpopular
among supporters of the Government, and
have done much toward modifying the
sympathy felt for them on the street. The
gold checks are in all essentials like any
other, only that tby are numbered and
signed before they are good for payment,
first, the signature of the drawer, second,
the signature of the R-gister; third, sig
nature of Teller, forth, signature of payer.
The signatures were very bunglingly
forged, the names were not spelled cor
rectly, nor was there the least attempt to
counterfeit the hand writing of the parties
on whom the fraud were committed. It it
difficult to understand how careful busi
ness men and firms could permit millions
of dollars to pass in and out of their hands
on pieces of paper which were not only
spurious but did not look like genuine

The Richmond Republican of yesterday

caused in this city yesterday evening by
the explosion of a magazine containing a
large quantity powder, situated on the flat

report was heard at 4 o'clock, and was
quickly followed by a rapid explosion of
shell. The ammunition was the property
of tbe late rebel government, stored in a
small wooden house known as tbe Tredger
Arsenal. It is supposed to have contain
ed 2,000 rounds of shell, shot and rifle car
tridges. A large quantity of percussion
caps were also stored in one of the rooms
of the house. Fragments of shells were
thrown for miles around. Persons living
near Oregon hill had to flae for their lives.

TRIAL OF WERTZ.
The Tribune's Richmond correspondent
says the interest already manifested in ar
ranging for the trial of Wertz bids fair to
outstrip that occasioned by ths conviction
of the assaiis'ria- In the merit or demerit
of this trial the Southern people are inter

their popular sentiment toward Union
prisoners will be adjudged. The fact that
our men were starved, frozen and inde

Protection to Home Industry.
The Tariff Association of this cityhava
issued a circular statement of their prin
ciples and objects, from which we make
the folljwing extract :
Our naonla hava Iiut emerged from an
immense war, burdened with debt and
hnma rlnwn hv taxation. OUT immediate
wants are payment of the one, and relief
from tbe other the decharge of our per
sonal obligations the development of our
internal resources the restoration and ad
vancement of our financial prosperity.
To effect these we must cut down ex
penses and abandon extravagance keep
our gold and silver at home create an
American market reguiaia our vur
mncv. and transact our business by a
specie standard labor hard in all branches
of industry, and thoroughly protect all
p rtmenta of labor.
1'he first great stup in this direction, we
firmly believe, is on increated protective
Tariff. It is to be noted mat curing wi
war the extraordinary advance of gold
prevented importations and amply protect
ed our industry ; that the return of peace
has so depreciated gold mat imriortauoBS
are being largely renewed ; that this, added
to the neaeesary burden of excise taxation,
has begun to cripple our mechanical enter
prises to an alarming extent ; that unless
relieved by early legislation, we shall speed
ily be flooded by the pauper productions
of Europe ; and that under these enormous
disadvantages our home manufactures can
not long survive. We must inaugurate) a
system of competition between the well
paid, intelligent labor of a free country
and the ill-paid, ignorant labor of dense,
despotic countries. Such a system a high
protective tariff alone affords, thus opening
our only avenue to financial equality with
the world. . 1V
Eyery true interest of the farmer, the
mechanic, the miner and the manufacturer,
demands a judicious embargo on importa
tions. Public and private economy de
mand it. The non exportation ot gold
depends upon it. The creation ol a nome
market depends upon it. Financial inde
pendence is a dream without it. The
success of our industrial pursuits and the
development of our wealth are impossible
without it. In short, we believe that our
individual prosperity and our national se
curity and progress can only be realized
by the early promotion and steadfast pro
tection of American industry.
Believing th is, we have organized this
Society, to diasominate practical informa
tion and arguments on this subject among
tha pitizana of Northern Ohio, to the end
that the popular opini m may be intelli
gently formed and effectually wielded lor
the greatest good.

At a certain point on their journey tba

it was remarked to be a fine shot. The
deputy hauled out his revolver, cocked it,
and was about t shoot when he said,
"By the by, Rorubacher, you are a
good shot with a pistol, ain't you?"
"Of course," said Rorubacher. Take
the revolver, then, and try your
hand at those ducks." Rorubacher
took the weapon, jumped out of the little
wagon, and advacning toward the ducks for
about ten or twelve steps, then, suddenly
