a resident of Cheyenne, Wyo. T., the
orator fur the occasion, entertained
the audience for sn hiurwi'h a most
graphic and potto description of Wy

discuised at luugth ( n trie press aad
its relation to party. He aivorated
an independent exprunsioa of political
views, even though 't involves tbe
criticism of ruin mi measures of
one's own party, for by such mtaig, he
claimed, a paity is purified, lie depre
cated in emphatic lermsa snbeervimt
cringing to patty leaders and high offi

a handsome tribute to Missisuppi, in
-which he sa d: "Apa t I 6m ideas of

how one could est 88 to lcmember his

yean ago, woen this people lay
stricken beneath the we'ght of ralam

spair hung like a pall upon the com
monwealtb. Toe gloom wa all per
vading and impentt-able. Law was
dead and just cs overthrown. Re
straint! impost d by custom were not
. heeded, btcauee there was no public
sentiment to enforce tbem. The re
a'raints of morality were not felt by
creatures iicpible of the m-ral
sense. In tbe tapitol apes chattered
and loathsome reptiles crawled. It
was a time for despa r if ever such
motion comes to earnest heart, and
the people, even to their bett and
brave t, yielded to the bitterness of
tbe boar. The wi.lowi were full of
harps, and tha air was life with lam
en tat ons for a lost Zioo. Then wai
the voice of Coneervatsm beard in
the land: "Yon aie not ii captivity;
Zion remaici : the temple has not been
destroyed. Cease lamenting, and gi
to work to recover yourheritag? and to
rebuild your s a tered State. After
some hesitation tbe wife call wai
heeded ; tbe harps were taken down,
and pare forth in cheating strains the
marching song of progress. The
thieves were driven cut. The money
changers fled. Vain re pining over ths

courage, and all over this fir SMi
men speedily beheld the g'ad remit,

lietolved by the Centnil Church,
That we have fully inquired in'o the
ch -racier and past reco d of Dr. How
ard, and that we find nothing against
his Christian re ord.
Resolved, That we find that his char

cases nothing waa found against him.
Resolved, T' at we, as Christians,
highly condemn the course pursued
by the parties who are trying to break
down the charact.r of a pure m n

week. The production last eek was
IL'0.700 barrels, or 20,112 per day,
against 116,000 the previous week and
132,92) the same week last year.
Nineteen mills are running to-day,

packer, Davis, who was at the head of
the packing firm of Davi?, Akinon &
Co when John A. Atkinson, the jun
ior member, lost $160,000 of the
firm's money, has sued orer a dozen
of the firms on the bord for the
money lost by Atkinson. The plaintiff
claims these brokers knew that Atkin
son was sp culating on his own ac
count and not on behalf of the firm of
Davis, Atkinson A Co., and that when
he gave them checks of the firm he
was giving them money that did not
belong to rum.

J Adams ami iif many respects to
th ,t of the Ella M7 DctagMy, waa that
of the Gloucester schooner Whi e
Fawn in 1874 seizjd on the New
Brunswick coist for buying bait at
Head Harbor The cose was argued
in the Vice Admiralty court of New
Brunswick in March of the following
year before Judge tla.en who decid l
the convention of 1818 in a
wholly different spirit from the
construction placed upon it hyihe
British crown ollicers tnen now. He
decided that the teizure was i legal
and ordered the release of the vessel
with everything that was on board
when the seizure was made. Judge
Hazon cited the fact that the White
Fiwn woe not alleged to have fished
within the three-mile limit, and for
all i hat appeared it might have been
the master's intention to fish oubside
the l'init only. It was not for the
court to impute an intention to break
the law. The capt-in had a right to
p-88 with his vessel through the three
marine miles to the fishing grounds

the presence of the vessel in St. Ann's
