cy ia money and reviving a panic In steeles.
Under these reports, the market for the lead?
ing snares, during the afternoon, experienced
4t marked decline. Another rumor looking in
Xhe same direction ls, that the relent sudden
lise in the Vanderbilt shares was not -ngiueer
ed by the Commodore himself, but only by his
lrieudfl, and that these parties now arv making
overtures to the bears, in order to operate for a
fall. Part of the programme is to sue ont in
Junctions on the proposed New York Central
and Harlem Consolidation; also against the pro?
posed Madison avenue extension. The time
for commencing the campaign is not definitely
Axed; but the story is that ?'L.a the West and
South begin to increase their demands for cur?
rency, the corisplrators will ge to work. They
boast of their ability to lock up $10,000.000 at
the start. Sow all this may be lt ls lmpos
-slble to say, but the plot looks plausible enough
to put many of the old heads of the street on
their guard. After what has transpired in
Wall street within the post few weeks the
public may as well make np its mind that
there ls nothing too unscrupulous and nothing
too reckless for the professional money gantt
biers there to undertake."
, -A New York letter ol Thursday says : "It
ls no longer denied anywhere to-day, with the
constantly increasing evidence, that the Radi?
cal administration of General Grant is so thor?
oughly implicated in the great gold swindle,
j that ali the excuses, all the explanations made
by partisan friends will no longer wipe out the
ill important fact that there ls corruption at
iteadquarters. Whether General Grant knew
or not what was going on between bis wife
and that arch-scoundrel, Mr. Corbin, lt can no
tonger be denied that members of his family
have benefitted largely by knowing the secrets
ol' the Treasury Department, and that he him?
self has been induced to appoint corrupt men
to office,who have helped the conspirators in the
carrying out of their plans. Mrs. Grant may
not have received money direct from Corbin.but
she has had some valuable real estate situated
in New Jersey conveyed to her. and the man
who has acted as thc government agent here
has been up to his shoulders in the pool, with
a result somewhat unfortunate to himself, but
showing filly how corrupt are the men who
have charge of the government under Grant's
administration. An official expo** will be
brought out next winter, when Butler, in the
House ol' Representatives, will move for a
committee of Investigation to unearth those
hidden secrets, which as yet lie burled to the
eye of the most'experienced reporter. In the
meantime, the grand jury here are examining
witnesses, and Mr. Jay Gould, the man who
was the brains of the gold clique, was on the
stand this morning. It ls said that about fifty
persons, more or less, connected with the re?
cent Wall street flurry, have been subponoed."
Thc Death of Lord Derby.
A cable telegram announces the death, on
Saturday last, of the Right Hon. Edward
Geoffrey Stanley, Earl of Derby, in the 70th
year of his age.
Lord Derby, then Mr. Stanley, was educa?
ted at Eaton and Oxford, and when only
twenty-two years old was elected to the
House of Commons as member for Stock?
bridge. High position and family influence
doubtless obtained for him so early a dis?
tinction; but what he won as a Stanley he
knew how to retaiu as ajnan. His maiden
speech was not made until three years after
?is election, and in the course of the same
session he exhibited a readiness, aptitude
and ability worthy of an expeiienced deba?
ter. It is worthy of remark that his second
speech in the Hduse wa3 on the subject of
the Irish Church, a question which caused
his resignation as Colonial Secretary in 1833,
which occupied his declining years, and
whoso solution was finally accomplished by
his political opponents only a few months
Mr. Stanley commenced his official life as
Under Secretary for the Colonies, and was
subsequently nominated to the then arduous
po3t of Chief Secretary for Ireland. Upon
Iiis appointment he, according to practice,
resigued his seat in the House and went be?
fore his constituents for re-election. At
Preston he was defeated, but was soon after?
ward returned for Windsor, and was engaged
in those single-handed conflicts with O'con?
nel and Sheil, which for years excited Par?
liament and alarmed the c?untry. While
the Reform bill was under discussion in
1832. Mr. Stanley's singular genius for de?
bate was exercised .jith# effect in defence of
its provisions ; and about the same time he
carried a ministerial measure for National
Education in Ireland. A year later he
carried the bill for emancipating the West
Intlia slaves, having for that purpose be?
come Colonial Secretan- and a member of
the Cabinet. Disapproving of Loni Mel?
bourne's project for still further reduciug
the Irish Church Establishment, he resigned
his seat in the Cabinet, and remained in the
ranks of the opposition until 1841, when lie
accepted the seals of the Colonial office. In
1844, he was elevated to the peerage, witli the
titln /^f Tf.irm, ^'qul.v 13UIIMI.-1O'V.V .? 1
Mlll'ii lue WpeuT or the corn laws was deter
miaed on, Lord Stanley retired from tiie Cabi?
net, and soon after appeared as the head of
the Protectionist opposition. In 1851 Lord
Stanley succeeded his father as fourteenth
Earl Derby, and in 1852 became Prime Miu
ister. In the same year his eldest son, Lord
Stanley, was appointed Under Secretary of
State for Foreign Affairs. The financial
plans of his Chancellor of the Exchequer,
Mr. Disraeli, were condemned by the coun?
try, and, in deference to a vote of tiie House
of Cjmmor , Laird Derby tendered his resig?
nation and resumed the position of leader of I
the opposition. Lord Derby declined to ac?
cept the premiership in 1K;>.'>, but formed his
second administration in 185S. Tiie Reform
bill, introduced by tiie Derby ministry, was
rejected by the House. Parliament was
dissolved, but tho new ?lections gave the
ministers no increased strength, and iii 1859
they resigna I. Lord Stanley, the eldest son
of Earl Derby, sate at this time in the Cubiuet
as Secretary of Stite for India, The second
administration of Lord Russell fell in June,
1866. and iii 1867 Lord D^rby, for the third
time, became Prime Minister. On Die 25th
February of the following year Earl Derby,
whose health had for some time been infirm,
reeig.i^d the premiership into the hands of
Mr. Disraeli.. Tiie Reform bill, the great
feature of Earl Derby's administration, was
introduced by Mr. Disraeli in March, 18G7.
Its provisions were decidedly more liberal
then those of the Russell-Gladstone bil! of
the preceding year, and lt. was received
with considerable favor and ultimately
passed. Thc whole management of tho mea?
sure was entrusted to Mr. Disraeli ; for Earl
Derby was too strongly bound to the old
Conservative party to take any very active
part in lt. The Disraeli ministry* was for?
mally attacked by Mr. Gladstone in March,
186S, when he introduced a resolution for
thc disestablishment of f'e Irish Church.
This resolution was steadfastly opposed by
the Conservative party, but it passed the
Hou3C in April and led to the resignation of
i Mr. Disraeli and his colleagues iu the fol?
lowing December. lu the debates la3t
spring on the Gladstone bill to disestablish
the Irish Church, Earl Derby took no con?
spicuous part, but the whole of his influence
was steadily thrown against the passage of
It was not only as a statesman that Earl
Derby won for himself a lasting reputation.
As a classical scholar he had few equals,
and bis translation of the Iliad in blank verse,
published in 1865, is highly praised by the
most competent critics. Mr. Gladstone, thc
present Prime Minister, is one of the first
Greek scholars of the day. These great
men. leading the cohorts of the opposition
or conducting the government of a mighty
nation, were deep students as well as mas?
ters of statecraft. With them the power
to watch over and control the destinies of
an empire went hand in hand with a
scholarship which raised martial Rome and
luxurious Greece from the dust of ages,
and made their heroes to live and breathe,
while Bismarck worked and planned, and
Napoleon formed anew the tangled web of
Throughout his life Earl Derby was op?
posed to change or innovation. With him
church and State were alike sacred; no
temptation comd induce bim to give way to
a pressure which he feared would overthrow
the bulwark of the constitution. As he
grew older he became more intolerant in his
political opinions. He \va3 a Tory to the
Earl Derby is .succeeded by Iiis eldest son.
Lord Stanley, who is now forty-eight years
old. The present Earl took first honors in
classics at Cambridge, and has sate in the
House of Commons since 1848. In 1832 he
was nominated Under Secretary of State for
Foreign Affairs, iu 1855' Secretary for the
Colonies, in h>58 Secretan- of State for
India, and in 186G Foreign Secretary. As
a Conservative statesman, the present Earl
already stands very high. Additional hon?
ore and a higher rank will not tarnish the
honors he has won, and will open to him
the path to the lofty position which his sire
so worthilv filled.

A correspondent of the Clarendon Press ex?

A correspondent of the Orangeburg News
suggests that "every one keep an eye on

"bring some of them to the bar of justice,
