All these witnesses declared em
phiticallv thst the general repatation

Mr. Lyman said that Lo based his
testimony upon statements made by
Dis. P. M. ru'mer, T. R. Markbam,
Jcsph Budweli, Moses Greenwood,
J. Wm. Flinn and mtny other'.
As the court decided yesterday thst
personal names might be called and
might be Riven, Dr. David recalled
Col. Bennett Young i the stand and
asked him for the names of those upon
whom he relied as impeaching the
veracity of the Christian Obtervrr.
Instantly there was a general flutter.
It seemed to be understood that Col.
Young had simothing li tell. This
excitemont was increased when Dr.
David openly offered to prove by Col.
Young tnat Mr. .Bulled himself, the
counsel for the defense, had expressed
reflections upon the reputation for
truth of the Conveises.
Pending the exciting discus. ion,
the Presbytery adjourned.

Louisville Presbytery met promptly at
9 o'clock this morning to continue the
Converse trial, and after the usual
routine the prosecution continued its
testimony by introducing the affidavit
of the Rev. John li. Adger, of
South Carolina. Dr. Adger'a testi
mony was t the ifluct that he
was acquainted with the repatation of
the Christian Observer, It was bad.
The reputation of Mersrt. Converse. &
Converse for truth and veracity was
bad. He testified that Dr. Woodrow.
k(ui nhamplitv It wa. nlioraml l,n.l
l been attacked by the Mesers. Cog
i verse, was not a money loving or grasp
I ing man. and that be had always
I ; known him to be a most honorable
man,
The crcs examination of Dr. Adger
, by the dofeute wfs read. The ques
tions propounded him wers in refer
ence to the source, extent and accura
cy of his knowledge of tha reputation
of the Messrs. Converge and Converge,
and his knowledge of the fteling
toward Dr. Woodrow.
The witness declined to make any
direct answtr to the questions, (imply
Stating that his information was de
rived from persons cf the highest char
acter. The testimony of the Rev. Dr. A.W.
CliBby, of Georgia, was introduced.
lie stated that Wie reputation ol tlio
Christian dinner for truth and veraci
ty was very bad.
lie was questioned as to a
charge by the prosecution that tho
Metsrs. Converse had insinuated that
portion of the fund of the Columbian
Seminary had been unlawfully lost,
and that the committee having charge
nf thft same had miiltv rnmnlicltv In
I tne loss ol tne same, ire had no
knowledge of tho mine, He testified
j that tho Christian Observer had been sent
. him and two years subscription had
been obtained from him under false
pretense. This had occurred over
twenty years ago. The trustees held
the views of Dr. Woodrow on evola
tion as sound and likely to prove true
at some time in future. He believed
that Dr. Woodrow was sound in the
and tenets of the church. The
' witness reiterated his cUtenient that
tiia reputation of the Observer was bad.
The testimony of the Rov. A. M.
Fraaier was read, lie was acquainted
yith the repatation of the Christian
V.iserrer. It did not como up to his
"mndard of honor. It differed among
iilarent clas.wa of people. Some
' 1 night it good and o'.Iioin thought it

, Ills anttaer was tho mine in reply to
I Suction touching the charactr of
defendsn's. He further testified
the Revs. GonvetBS and Con-
could not be truited where they
luterehleil. J. ho witnenstef titled
be rontiderod Dr. Woodrow's
ry on evolution and his doctrino
f-4'he testimony of Mr, W. R Lymnn,
U New Orleans, president of the Cres
cent Insurance Company, was read,
the reputation of tho C'Anafmn Obtervrr
, as known to the witness for truth and
veracity was bad. The witners did
ot concur in the view that the evolu-
fn theory of Dr. Woodrow was sound.
The testimony of the Riv. J. 8. Mo
f roy, of Mouut Sterl ng, was read.
!io witness testified tht the general
; pu'ation of the Chritiiat Obtervrr and
s editors for truth and veracity, was
ot good.
i A number of other aflldavits from
Veil known people in the church were
ntroduced, aad they all amounted vir
ually to the same thing, that the pa
for did not sail high for truthfulness,
or its editors stand at the head of the
cinsa for veracity.

U FALL IN SILVER.
lha Rnlnralon In Value Ha
A, Alleclftl Trade In India,
The Manchester Guardian, which
as not been alow of late in giving ex
ression to the arguments of silver
.ea, publishes the following: Tho
ew tint tho trade and agriculture ot
:i iia have in no way been benefited
tho fall in the Ea-.torn exchanges
4 rapidly gaining ground. It is
rtainly supposed by the statis
i al evidence collected by the
,,tian Uoverament, which goes
aliow that thre has been no
,a:susl variation in prices in the de-r-.ulency
since the fall in exchange
an. Tbis opinion was also de
, :i Jed in a rscent address to the Bcn
,,1 Chamber of Commerce by its
rcidont, and now we have further
m aad arguments pointing to the
cDncluiion, which sre evidently
ki.,1 by the Indian Government.
L':: are contained in a memorandum
n ; e Calcutta Gazette from the pen of
O'Conor, the Assistant S.'cre
',,y of the Financial Department, who
r devoted especial attention to la
',: i trade statistiis. The exporter,
..lmiti, is able to sell Indian pro
, more cheaply in the European
rktts because of the fall of ex
but as a matter of fact the
i . prii'es cf the prcducs lae not
.-.'.(iioed because prices have fallon in
j;ie as muob as hai the rate of ex-
jfy, v Broadly tjpoakiny this
is perfectly correct. although
iu certsin caes snch, for ex
ample, as that of cotton the
price in Liverpool or London rema'ned
for a time steady, while the exchange
was falling, aud' the result was higher
rupee prices, and nltima'cly the bene
fit of these would reach the cultivator.
Excluding, however, temporary and
exceptional instances such as this, the re
ts an abundance of evidence going to
prove that prices in London havo not
advanced. The rupee is now worth only
Is 4d, and if tnis tremendous fall
bad produced any advantage to the
Indian grower of produce he ought to
have realized in the shape of higher
prices. Whatever increase of exports
has taken place from Iudia in recent
yeara appears to be sufficiently ac
counted for by the extension
of . railways into districts net
previouply scoeihle except by
old and expensive modes of com
munication, and by the reduction of
ocean freights. Mr. O'Oonor goss on
to aigae mat the fall in exchange ha3
actually done harm to the Indian ex
port trade by lose ening the price ob
tained for the produce in Eti'ope, and
he therefore contends that a rise in
exclLango would rather be a benefit
than an injury. The publication of this
noto is doubtless intended to ttrength
en the appeal which the Indian ad
ministration has lately made to the
home government tasfek some meth
od of counteracting tbe growing diver
gence between tho valuea of gold and
silver to which these perturbations iu
the exchange are duo.

Dram, Acting Secretary of War, has
iven instructions tnat uerommo,
Catchez and other hcstilcs who sur
rendered with them, be stopped at
San Antonio and kept in prison there
until a determination is reached as
to what courte of procedure can be
undertaken again-rt them. It ii c fis
cally known that the surrender wai
rot made without conditions, but
what tho conditions were, beyond the
agreement that they chould n t be
surrendered fcr trial in Ariz ira, has
not yet been renoited. It was in com
pliance wi'U trjls condition trial uen.
Miles started witn tbo notiles for
Florida.
Tbe determination of a course of
procedure wid probably be made by
tne Preeidect, but not until tbe terms
of the surrender and all the attend
ant circumstances shall be oQicially
known, uitn toe prtsent knowledge
it eeenis probable that the olfunders
an neither be tried ly a military
court martial nor by the civil author
ities, but tbat they may De tried as
the Modocs were by a military com
mission. This is a tribunal for the io
etitution of which there are ipany
well recognized precedents in our own
history, though it is one which baa as
vet no recognition in statutory law.
Tbe atrocitiis of these prisoners, ter
rible as they were, are not thought to
be such as would biing them witbin
tho jurisdic ion of a court martial,
which 1H vory limited, nor wouia tie
civil courts in tbe absence of wit
nesses meet the requirements of
the case, although the guilt is no
torious. Under the cirenms'ances
military commission, which seems
to bs intermediate between a
court martial and the tribunal
of Judge Lynch, and which it recog
nised by tti leading publicise as a
necosei y under certain circumstances,
is perhaps the only court Dy wnicti
ustice could be mettd out to tnose mur-
dereis. It would, nf course, be corn
nosed of mllitiry oflicers and its pro
ceedings would be similsr in character
to those ol a court martial, inline
doubt is entertained by these who
know the character of the Apaches
that there will be found among them
number who will readily Setray
Ueronimo and the other leaders to
