WAsHING rON, July 4 --The execu
tive conaittee of the National
Grango yesterday determined to send
three of their members, vis :
Messrs. Shankland, of Iowa, Chase,
of Now 1lipshire, and Jone4, of
Arkansas, to represent. the Patrons of
ilushandry in the Cotton States
Congrei.s, which meets in Raleigh, N.
C., on the l3th instant. Time com
Ilittee have spent considerable time
in roceiving and considering the
prOPOSitiou of th3 En1giish co
oleritors for a union for commercial
purposes of the two bodies. The co
Operators are represented by Thomas
1). Worrall, of Alanohoster, England,
who is the managiag dirootor of the
Coulpany which is proposed as the
bond of union. It appears that the
British co-operative Atoieties are not
a scoret body, hence it will be impos
*ible, under existing circumstances,
to unitc with the Patrons ; but this
<lifiulty has been met by the formna.
tion of a trading company, hating
the endorsemenit and support of the
V united co-operative lodges in Enog
land, and fully organined under the
English laws. The prepositions are
to h ave two branches of' the society,
one in England and the other in the
United States. T1he board in each
.country is to have absolute control of
j thr funds subscribed, wbieh are to be
used for the purpose of international
change of commodities. TI.e capi.
tal is twenty-five million dollars, and
lal transactions are to be eaah or its
equivalent. 'The Blritish co-operators
number .500,000 members, and have
ove a houandstores,,'ome 50 or 60
cotton spinning mills, about 20 flour
ing mills, agricultural and hortica'
tural socitios, and a number of umanu
4factures, and, of course, consume a
large quantity of American produots.
;The funds subscribed by the English
brunch of the company will be em-.
ployed in t,he pur,chase of supplies,
the ereotin of warehouses, and the
'nanufacture of such articles as are in
constant demand among the Patrons
of Husbandry. The ship will bring

The Latest Fashion notes.
No lady wears a bustle.
"Simple" dresses or costumes don't
exist, in society, this year.
The 'round or shawl shaped fiehu,
the ends knotted in front, is one of
the successes'of the season.
Bonnets of black damask gauze are
beginning to appear, trimmed with
violets and Valenoiennnes.
Iridescent pearl is in high fashion,
for Ftanatics, parasol handles, dress
and bonnet ornaments, buttons, &c.
Polonaises have gone out, and con
sequently fine ones in rich raw silk or
in silk and velvet that sold for $60 to
$75, last year are offered in New
York stores for $12 and $15.
k,ittle mirrors, for attachment to
ladies chatelaines, are made of gold,
either chased, frosted, engraved or
sct with stones, aud are either round
or oval, the latter shape being prof.
erable.
Very soft, low coiffures are worn in
Vars, and nets for the hair are re.
vived there ; a few ladies have ap
peared in Now York with thin, al
most invisible, nets protecting their
lovely braided hair.
A new and pretty bat for young
girls is a tine and flexible Panama,
called the "Mai," which is trimmed
with pale blue or white damask
gauze, a wreath of white thorn, May
blossom or hedge roses.
Greaadino veils, very long, are ar
rang,ed in the fash ion apopted for tulle
Veis, last summer. The middle of
the veil is passed smoothly over the
face, the ends crossed behind the
head, thea brought to the front, and
tied under the chin. Blue, cream.
color and white are most used.
The Latest "Affair of Honor."
It appears that the Clarke-Alston
squabble is to receive additio ial ven
tilat'ion in the newspaperi. The At.
lanta Herald contains a lengthy
"card" fron Gn. A. C. Garlington,
Col. Alston's friend, giving his vor.
sion of the affair. The gist of it is
that when the parties arrived at a
house in Alabama, near the border,
the second of Col. Clarke left the
house, stating he would return in
41fteen minutes, but aft'er a delay of
three hours he did not make his
appearance, and the Alston narty
were informed that the officers of the
law were after them. They beat a
retrent across the border, but found
that there were warrantsout against
them in Georgia, also whereupon
they returned to Atlanta, and Gen.
Garlington announces that his con
nootion with the air has terminated.
Per contra, the Constitution protal
sea i card from Col. Clarke when ho
returns, and publishes a despatch
stating "Col. Clarke and his friend,
after waiting,some time, also left to
avoid arrest, though it is thought
they are still in the vicinity of the
battle-ground," and it is said the
Clarke party had shotguns -concealed

Hardy Solomon's Broken Bank.
LOOKING 1NTO THE AFFAIRS OF THAT
ROTTEN CONOERN.
The President of this bank was a
power, was spoken of for Governor in
stead of Chamberlain, and is tikl set
up as a dead suro thing for the &Oxt
State Treasurer- He was no laggard
in the last campaign, and though the
Governor may never have touched a
bond, and indeed does not deal in mat
ters financial, still there was the beat
opportunity in the world for those
who know the inside of things to buy
bonds at 25,,28 and 30 cents, and sell
in two months at 45 and 50 cents. If
the South Carolina Bauk and Truab
Company did not buy bonds in this
wise, it did not know its business,
that's all. Thq Stote cleared 60
cents on the dollar, and I don't see
why other folks with money oouldn';
do likewise. Some folks did not
have any money, and !hose are mostly
the people who have got lesa now.
After the eampaign -jame the struggle
in the Legi.lature, and Elliott be.
came Speaker. Then cao the fight
in which Curdoza was not removed
and Dunn was elected. The bill, to
make the South Carolina Bank and
Trust Company and the Central Na.
tional Bank the public depositories
was defeated by the veto, and, the
Board under the old law appointed
five banks, two here and three' in
Charleston. Besides his share or
some share of the public deposits,
most of the county troa.urers were
depositing with Hardy as well- as
many privato . parties. The State
owed him ubout $130,0000, of which
there was, as far as I can asoertain,
some. $28,000 . on the old $125,000
account still due, $86,000 for peni.
tentiary, $ 10,000 for Frasee's account,
$5),000 for Lunatic Asylum, and a
good deal of Stite paper which he
had discounted and was otherwise
carrying. It is reasonable to sup
pose that the fight last Winter, in
which the stability of his bank was
severely criticised, had considerably
weakened his credit in the North,
and no doubt had something to do
with this crash. Th:A was $205,000
of Stato money on deposit when the
suspension was announced, some $15,.
000 of county Treasurer's nioney and
some $25,000 of private deposits. It
we rumored that the State Treasur.
or would draw on him for $50,000,
and that with the load of $130,000 it
would stagger the bank. This caus
ed a run, and when the check for
$10,000 by the Greenville add Co..
lumbia Railroad was dishonored, the
bank clotted its doors. Judge Oa
penter yebterday, on the application
of Attorney -General Molton, appoint.
e-d Ron. T. C. Dunn roreiver,, by the
consent of 0 D. Melton, ooaunsel for
the bank. Among the assets are the
following :
Slato securities $180,000
Mortgages 76,000
Due by ity of Columbia 20,000
Other securities, eto. 160,000
Total asse(s, $875,000
This is supposed by those best in.
formed to be about the amount of the
assets. The liAbilities are
StalIe depos.its ,105,000
County Treasurers 18,000
Private deposits 80,000
Other debts, say 60,000
Total labiltes, s,y $318,000
Rumor says that ex-Gov. Scott is
in for some, $5,500 bonds. R{union,
TIreasurer of Groenville, for $8,000
cash ,; Weston, Treasurer Chester
field, for $5,000, and others whose
names will more fully appear in the
report of the receiver. In the
meanwhile, Hardy does not seem to
he much hurt individually. lHe still
has large private resources, and says
he will pay every dollar he owes,
but that the State will be forced to
shoulder this *130,000, which he
claims will offset that much of hIs
public debt.
There is a good deal behind this
suspension that the public does not
suspect as yet. The grocery is stilt
doing an immense business, and Mr.
Donaldson says will not be affected
in the least by the failure. The pub.
lie ef'eot will be to stop paymwent
of interest ont the public debt, and
leave perhaps not a dollar for public
officers until the Legislature meets,
It will, perhaps, disturb the funding~
procss and injure the credit of the1
State. It will certainly place the
investigation of all this State papoe6
the asoa of the*bank, in the hands of
the comnptroller-general. The comnp.
troller and his lieutenant, T. P-. Cavs

raneegreat efforts are being made

hat the overflow of river banks, as
Ilustrated by the Nile and the Miss.

Row to Keep Re,
A farmers wife wrote from Venies,
Cayuga county, New Irork, telling
the farmer's olub how to keep m-ist
fresh a long time: "There is no
good reason why fariners and their
families should eat so much salt
pork, leaving all the fresh moat to
the inhabitants of .oitles and villages
yhen the follow!ng method will;keep
peat fresh for weeks, even In the
Warmest weather. I know, for I have
used it for i-ore than ten years. As
soon as the animal boat Is out of the
meat slios it up ready for Cooking.
Preppare a large jar by Nealding we I
w th hot and salt water. Mix salt
an I pulverized opltpetre to one I
teaoupful of salt, cover the bottom i
of the jar with.a sprinkling of salt 4
and popper. Put dowt, a layer of
meat, sprinkle with salt and pepper, I
the same as if just -going to the table
and continue in this manner until the a
j-r is full. Fold a oloth or towel I
and wet it in strong salt and water,
tn which a little saFtpetre is dissolved. I
Press the cloth closely over the meat I
and set in a cool place. Be sure and I
press the cloth on tightly as each I
"-yer is removed, and your moat
will keep for months. It is a good
plan to let the meat lie over night,
after it is alled, before packing. 4
Then drain off the blood that ,oozos
from it. It will be necesary to a
uhange the cloth ocoasionally, or take
it off and wash it, first In cold water, a
then scald in salt and water, as at I
Rlrat. In this way farmers can have
freoh meat the year 'round. I have A
