tribution within the week ot a larger amount
of merchandise, of one kind er another, from
this centre, than has been the case for a long
while. One of the leading dry goods houses
has marked down its prices to a comparatively
low figure to-day, and other dealers, next
week, in all probability, will be obliged, if they
desire to keep np with thc times, to follow its
.example. The only drawback to a prosperous
season, viewed O om the stand-point of to-day,
IS tile apprehension that the farmers will hold
back their produce in the hope of obtaining
higher prices for it, when gold reacts. As but
feW financiers here expect any such reac?

unwise if they do any such thing."
-A Washington telegram of Monday's date
says : "The House Military Committee was en?

3Ir. Johu McCarthy, of this city, arid Mr. El?
liott, of Philadelphia, appeared before the
committee. Mr. Elliott testified to having paid
41000 to Mr. McCarthy for the appointment of |
"his son, but he had had no business with Bowen
In relation to it. From the testimony of Mr.
McCarthy lt appears that the papers were c V
tained from Mr. Bowen by a man named
.Gushing, who resides in Bowen's district, and
*vho asked for the appointment on his own
account; that Mr. Bowen gave the papers to
Mr. Cushlng without any consideration, and
.that Mr. Cushing in turn gave them.to Mr.
McCarthy, and that he (McCarthy) sold them
to Mr. Elliott, and pocketed all the money
that passed in the transaction. The committee
.acquit Mr. Bowen of being actuated by any
improper motives in the transaction."
-The saucy Sun's Washington correspon?
dent, who is ever telling tales out of school,
:says that whoever will take the pains to exam
toe with care the testimony before thc com?
mittee charged with investigating thc gold
panic of September last, will see that, ia spite
of all tue whitewashing endeavors of tho
chairman and his assistants, thc convenient
memories o? some of the ^Interested witnesses,
and the disappearance of the most impor?
tant part of the Grant family correspondence,
there is much that is mysterious, suspicious
and damaging to thc occupants of thc White
House, male aad female. It is demonstrated
beyond all doubt that they knew a large spec?
ulation was on foot, and that they were to
benefit by it, at least partially. The refusal of
General Grant and his wife and sister to make
any statement before the committee may be
considered very politic in some quarters, but
with reflecting people the failure to explain
satisfactorily the transactions with Corbin &
Company cannot but leave a bad impression,
especially after the mercenary inclinations
which have been so painfully evident in those
quarters. It is no secret in well-informed cir?
cles that thc President has received at least a
quarter of a million of dollars in the form of
substantial presents, to say nothing of thc
stocks in speculative enterprises which have
been donated to him and his staff to secure
their favor. It is also stated that a brother of
the President, not very long ago, had a note
discounted at one of lhe national banks tn
New York, which happened to be the deposi?
tory of the United States consular fund. The
note was not paid when due, and, therefore,
the usual notice was issued. The person con?
cerned went to Washington, made his state?
ment, and the note was cashed; but the con?
sular deposits were immediately atterward
transferred to tlie banker Seligmann, a favorite
with General Butterfield, and at the White
Revision of the English Bible.
What is called "The Convocation" in Eng?
land has, Tor the last two hundred years,
ceased to he of any political or ecclesiastical
importance. According to the theory of
Anglicanism, the. Assembly of the Bishops,
and other clergy of the Church, bas a con.
current jurisdiction with Parliament. The
secular and ecclesiastical bodies meet at the
same time, divide into two houses, are or?
ganized by the call or election of their own
officers, have their appropriate ceremonies,
and expire together. Tlie Convocation af?
fords a curious example of an obsolete insti?
tution, rigidly observing every old precedent
and cautious?*7 doing nothing for a couple of
centuries. Tue right to tax its members
was transferred to Parliament in the time of
the Stuarts. The right to appoint a bishop
is assigned to the Prime Minister, who nom?
inates him, and gives the Chapter "leave to
"elect" the person nominated; the latter, after
having prayed to the Holy Ghost for direc?
tion, always proceeds to elect the appointee
of the Crown. Thus the Convocation has
beena curious ecclesiastical anomaly. It
has shown to the English people "how not
"to do it" after the approved old-fashion,
which Dickens describes.
But now this venerable body has taken a
position which al once brings it into living
association with the ecclesiastical progress
of the age. At the^ February Convocation,
Hw House of Bishops inaugurated a move?
ment for the revision o? the English transla?
tion of the Scriptures. The Prelates of the
Diocese of Canterbury unanimously provided
for a report, by committee, "upon the desira?
bleness of a revision of the authorized ver
"sion of the Old and New Testaments,
"whether by marginal notes or otherwise, in
"all those passages where plain and clear
"errors, whether in thellebrcw or Greek text,
"originally adopted by the translators, or in
"the translations made from the same, shall,
"on due investigation, be found to exist."
The resolution offered by the Bishop of Win?
chester was successively supported by the
bishops of St. Davids, of Llandaff, of Salis?
bury, of Exeter, and by other prelates.
Of these prelates, the first, in offering the
resolution, said that "everybody who studied
"the matter, knew that there were, in the
"present volume, parts of it which did not
"belong to the inspired record. Therefore,
"he believed it was the duty of the Church
"to remedy these errors." The latter con?
fessed his fear that the resolution, if carried,
"would involve the necessity of constant rc
"vision of the Scriptures, and for this he was
"by no means prepared. He did not believe
"that any alteration in the grammatical or
"verbal construction of the New Testament
"would in any way affect thc doctrine which
"the Church of England now held. He be
"lieved it would be a great advantage, both
"to tlie public and private reading of the
"English Church, if a judicious revision were
"made. Such a revision would, no doubt,
"alter in very material respects the face of
"the Holy Scriptures, but that ought to be
"no reason why they should abstain from re
"vision, if, by sucli revision, they could sc
"cure a more faithful representation of Scrip
"ture than they had hitherto had." After
these speeches, the motion prevailed.
This action will awaken the deepest inter?
est in the whole English-speaking world.
The received version was made from the
texts of Erasmus and Stephens, collated in
the Sixteenth Century from manuscripts in
use in the Tenth Century. Since that time,
older manuscripts, together with versions
dating from early ages, and quotations from
ecclesiastical writers of antiquity, have been
collected, multiplying the readings and
modifying the text in many particulars. Es?
pecially nave three great manuscripts, pub?
lished in modern times, given a new impetus
to biblical criticism. These are the Vatican
Codex, the Alexandrine Codex and the Sinai
tic Codex, which were written, the first and
last in the Fourth, the second in the Fifth
Century. They were published in 1857, in
1786, and in 1S02, respectively. AtuoDg
these the Sinaitic Codex, discovered by
Tischendorff in the Convent of St Cathe?
rine's, on Mount Sinai, appears to bc tlie
oldest of all, as it contains the unrevised
text prior to thc time of Jerome. The read?
ings of these old MSS. differ in many par?
ticulars from those upon which the received
version is founded. Baron Tauchnitz, in his
one thousandth volume of English Classics,
has published the new interpretations from
these three great MSS., a most important
contribution to biblical criticism. And now
the prelates of the English Church are about
to assume tlie work of revision.
The result, we have no doubt, will be of
advantage to our common Christianity. Thc
new versions that have already appeared,
and the revised texts that have been publish?
ed, show tlie substantial integrity of the
sacred canon. We think that the recensions
of Jerome and others are worthy of more
respectful consideration than Tischcndorff
would be inclined to give them. But in any
event, the preservation of the Sacred Text is
one of the marvels of history. Its reproduc?
tion in a perfect form will be the crowning
literary glory of our age.
A Cotton Bureau.
Tho New Orleans papera are complaining
of the virtual control which New York City
has assumed over the cotton markets of this
country, and of the influence which she is
enabled to exert even over foreign markets,
owing to the fact that she bas become the
centre of telegraphic information from all
points in the cotton-growing region. They
maintain, with good reason, that the inter?
ests of the North as the consumer, and that
of the South as the producer, must neces?
sarily be adverse. The one desires to buy
as cheaply, and the other to sell as dearly,
as possible. With a view, therefore, of coun?
teracting, as far as may be, the existing
Northern control over the price of our great
staple, they urge the establishment in one of
the leading Southern seaports of a cotton
bureau, the proposed organization of which
is thus sketched in the Picayune :
"A superintendent and a sufficient number
of clerks are to be employed, who are to keep
up a regular correspondence with thc most re?
liable and well-informed parlies throughout
the entire South. The country will be divided
into districts, and from the first planting of |
the seed, throughout the season, minute in?
formation will be obtained from each as to the |
acreage, the stand, the weather, the appear?
ance of thc worm or any other enemy, the
yield, the character of the labor, and, in short,
every item calculated to affect the crop. Week?
ly bulletins of the information thus obtained,
generalized yet supported by proofs, arc to bc
published and sent abroad. In addition to thc
above, correspondence is to bc kept up with
all the great consuming centres, as well as
with India, Egypt, Brazil, Ac, with a view to
obtaining early and trustworthy information
as to the crops of other countries and the pros?
pect lor consumption; and an elaborate yearly
statement of the crop and consumption of the
United States is to be published at the earliest
possible time after the 1st ol September."
The suggestion is an eminently proper
one; but we cannot help thinking that the
South already possesses, if ber people will
but use it, the power of regulating the price
of the staple throughout the world, by a
process far more direct, simple and certain
than the machiner}' of such a bureau as that
proposed. Let our planters but resolve to
act upon the principle that the cotton is
henceforth to be merely the money-crop of
these Southern States,-let them take care,
in the first place, to produce on their own
soil enough grain and provisions of all kinds
to make living cheap and plentiful
among us. If their efforts for the growth of
cotton be strictly limited to the surplus land
I and labor that may be available after the
first result is provided for, there need be no
fear that the staple will at any time hereaf?
ter fail to pay us a handsome profit
TnE National Anti-Slavery Standard pro?
poses to drop from its title tfoe words "anti
"slavery," in view of the adoption of the
Fifteenth amendment. Not having slavery
to war upon, and feeling impelled by its
pugnacious nature to tight something, even
though it be a shadow, it proposes to direct
its batteries against what it calls "the spirit
"of caste, the yet living offspring of slavery."
It no doubt take3 its cue from Senator Sum?
ner, who, not long since, delivered a lecture
on the subject of "Caste," which his friends
cried up as a very great production.
OUR Darlington correspondent writes that
"R. R.'" Whitemore has already convinced
some of his constituents that he did just thc
right thiug in selling a cadetship. Ono of
these enlightened voters was asked if he
knew that his Congressman bad got into
trouble, and his reply was, "Yes, sir. I bear
"um say he sell a ship." Well might Timo?
thy Hurley congratulate Whitemore that his
constituents can't read.
TBE conduct of Governor Stevenson, of
Kentucky, in refusing to accept the resigna?
tion of Golloday, the Democratic Congress?
man charged with selling cadetships, con?
trasts very handsomely with the hot baste in
which Governor Scott accepted the resigna?
tion of Whitemore. The diff?rence between
Stevenson and Scott is just thc diff?rence be?
tween a gentleman aud a carpet-bagger.
