Iumptor,when she was a girl t'wele years, t
and ho a man of twentd ebhree. At that
time she.a as a eb, ,L great beauty, but
withou any e..cnt ion. Mr. Mackey fell in
lovo , , ner at first sight and determined 1
to t e her his wife. He gained her moth- I
er' consent dnd sent the girl to Oberlin col
i e, Ohio, to be educated at his expense,
that sho might be fitted to becomo his wife.
She passed nearly five-years at Oberlin, dili
gently pursuing her studios and correspond
ing with Mr. Mackey, but never seeingxim
until tho day before she was $o be gradu
ated. Her vacation had been spent in
Philadelphia with her uncle, William Pros
ton, with whom her mother and younger
sister . resided. In the spring of 1874.
when she was to be graduated, Mr.
Mackey camo on from Charleston and
took Miss Sumptor's mother on to Ober
lin to witness the commencement exercises
and to bring Miss Vickey home. Whn
Mr. Mackey met her there after the flive
years separation sho.had grown, It possible,
more beautiful. She was highly accom
pllshed, and received her diploma with hon
ors, after - which - Mr. Mackey, the young
lady and her mother cate to this city and
stopped at the Continental hotel. That
evening Bishop Sitipson was sent for and
the young couple wOro married in the par
lor. The only witnesses to the ceremony
were tho bride's mother, her young sister
Rosalie, and William Preston, her uncle.

t ToRONTO, Jan. 30.-For some timo past
a rumor has been busy with the affairs of the
. British Canadian Lumber and Timber con
-o pany, which -has mado an assigment. Thto
company bad a capital of $1,000,000, mostly
e. Scottish- money, when formed somo years
ys ago, and bought extensive limits and mills
s. fromt Georgo J. and V. II. Cooke. It is un
to derstood that the Messrs. Cooke made a
D. good thing out of the sale. George J. Cooke
t. is president of the company and J. S.
Lt hockitt, formerly manager of the Bank of
p Commerce, is its financial manager. The
L. anks mainly intorosted are the Toronto,
,o Quebec and Commerce. The liabilities foot
n up closo on to $1,000,000, perhaps half of
jr which is secured. Tie Connnerce bank is
the largest creditor. it is now alleged that
.1 tho rosy statoments as to the value of the
l. limits have not been realized, and that not
to only will the shareholders lose all the
ie money they put in, but the ordinary credi
tors will not be paid nd tho banks will be
out a large amount. A short time ago it
was hoped that tile company would pul
ce through by each of tho-bantks advancinl

m but this arrangement appears to havo beei
as abandoned. -

Position in the Case.
WAsiNOToN, Feb. 2.-Gen. Fitz-John
'orter has at last been vindicated, the bill
o restore him to his position in the army
aving passed its biggest stumbling block by
vote of 184 to 78. Tho debate over the bill
asted until nearly eight o'clock. At times
1 was very spirited. The bill as passed is as
"Be it enacted by the senate and house of
opresentatives of the UnitedJ States of
kmerica in congress assembled: That the
residont be, and hp horeby is authorized to
nominate and, by and with th4 advice and
3onsent of the senate, to appoint Fitz-Johu
Porter, late a major general of the United
States volunteers and a brevet brigadier
general and colonel of the army, to
the position of colonel in the army
of the United States, of the same grade
and rank held by him at the timo.of his
dismissal from the army by sentence of
court inertial, promulgated Janua;y 27,
183, and to place on the retired list of the
army as of that grado, the retired list being
thereby increased in number to 'that extent;
and all laws and parts of laws in conflict
herewith are suspended for this purposs
only; but this nt shall"not be construed as
authorizing pay, componisation or allowancc
prior to the passage of this act."
The house dispensed with its morning sea
sion and devoted the day to debate upon thi
bill. M-. Volford5 of Kentucky, siakin!
in support of the bill, said lie hoped that n<
man who'ihad served in the coufederati
army had got so angry over the 1fgh
that after twenty years ho could no
do an act of justice t a map who hai
fought against him. lie hoped that no mai
would get up and say: "I can't vote on thi
bill. I am interested. I am still mad." H
understood that his Confederate fiiend
were hero loving the flag and loving th
country, and that they wero hore saying t<
day and forever that they had left bohin

war and everything that divided the countri
Mr. Calkins, of Indiana, begau .his speec
by saying he know thoro was no doul
about the passage o the bill. There w
a condition of affairs now which mad
it probable that the bill would pasi
all the way through, but .i there was suc
a condition of- affairs now he would appo,
from the action to the people. Ionbor
wore asked by this bill to say, in the lai
guago of the gentleman from New Yor
(Mr. Slocum), that Abraham Lincoln an
Edwin M. Stanton an (en. lIalleck cos
spired together to organizo a court to cos
vict Fitz John Porter, and the gentlema
undertook to attack the name of William 'I
Bherman to help him out. (on. Sherma
was true to his country, and while he an
Stanton had a difliculty yet, with the ge
orosity of late years, the general had sai
that ho did not believe that Stanton was. ui
true to himself or him. If these scenes we
to be re-onacted here, there might come
time when the bugl blast of the grand am
of the opublic, by the side of their cau
fires, would ask Gen. Sherman'to come o
of his retirement and lead thon again

was $19,580,04. The c4* in the es.suy on tl
- January 21st was $808415,98. The reduo

The senate committee on privileges and
elections will meet to-day to consider how to
d make the invostigatioi' of political outrages
in Virginia and Mississippi, called for by I
the Sherman resolution adopted on1 Tuesday.
Is The members of the committee are unde- ]
cided as to the wisest plan to adopt. There I
is considerable talk about sending sub oom- i
d anittees to the two states to make Inquiries
on the spot, but there are some difficulties
in the way of this course. The resolution
as passed by the senate made no pro
vision for an investigation outside of Wash
ington, and to do so the committee would
In have to get special permission from the
by senate. Then, too, only the chairman of
'y a committee is allowed by the statutes to
st inter oaths, so that if the sub-com
n- nmi e desired to take sworn testimony
they would have to be made special oon
as mittees of the senate. It would be incon
by veniont for the prominent members of
to the election committee to leave the cap
ital for some time. Mr. Hoar, for ex
ample, has his hands full of work, as a
der member of the judiciary committee,
the chairman of which, Mr. Edmunds,
has to devote most of his time to the duties
or- of presiding officer of the senate. Mr. Sher
man is also very busy with measures before
the finance committee. The committeemen
of are also undecided whether to investigate
of first one state and then the other, or to go
on with both at the same time. It is proba
ble, however, that both investigations will
rios be begun here, and that the question of
1110 sending out sub committees will be left un
decided until the committee can judge what
an, to do from the results of its work here Re
as gard.will be paid to this respect to the
wishes of eenators on the democratic side.
. Admirals Porter, Roger and Jenkins and a
ain largo delegation of officers of the navy made
alh. arguments beforp the sep ate committee'on
naval affairs in favor of the construction of
ea additional ships of war. In the last congress
gon it w enacted that the secretary of the navy
should not repair any vessels in the service
where the cost of the same should exceed 20
ud, per cent. of the origiiqal cost of the ships.
go, The startling statement is made that unless
lay this law is repoaled or amended there will
is not be half a dozo ships of the American
navy afloat at the expiration of two years.
The naval officers urged upon the committee
a. the necessity for the prompt completion of
his the new cruisers, now being constructed, and
also for the building of other now ships of
jury war. It is proposed also to amend the law,
hil- so as to allow repairs on old vessels to be
made up to the amount of 33) per cent., in
cape stead of 20 per cent. of original cost. Ad
cap- miral Porter thought the advisory board
+hould put more sail power on the new cruis
,n ers. He favored steam as an auxiliary to
, by sail vower, while the board wished to make
sail simply an auxiliary to steam pqwer. All
,duce tho officers who spoko expressed their contl
corn donco that the new cruisers would be first
class iu all respects.
. The Ohio legislatur-e has asked the repro
ani sentatives of that state to vote for a restora
ed tion of the old duty on wool. Mr. Hurd
the proposes to disregprd these instructions, am
y ,. he wants to tell the house and (lie country
is. resons for disobedient conduct. Thb
