The Woodward Re-union.
To-day many of our active, useful men are
buys again. They are reminded of thoir
Woodward High-school days reminded of
thoir youthful association, their sports, their
play-grounds, tbeir old teachers and the great
patron of the school, the worthy Woodwabd
himself. It was a laboring man, the nover-to-bo
sufficiently esteemed William Wood
ward, who, whoa the State was struggling to
initiate a systom of Free Sohools, common to
the children of all ranks in the State, this Cin
cinnati pionoor, the humble tanner, the man
who drove his own oart in daily work before
tho High School be himself endowed that
started for the people's childron of Cincinnati a
noble common and elassioal school, which, like
the running waters of a cleft rook, has been
blessing our city with its elevating influences.
Woll may those who obtained instruction by
this laboring man's bounty honor the anniver
sary day. Tax-payers, tho fund for sohools
is annually lossened by tho rents of the Wood
ward real estate, and the whole city has boon
benefltod by tho schools. i Pupils from afar
arc in attendance to-day to honor the memory
of Woodward.' Kick a lively foot-ball to-day,
boys, and drink a bumpor to-night in joyful
remembrance of the good man Woodward,
The West End—The Street Railroads.
We advlso our mechanic readers to avail
themselves, in time, of opportunities to pro
cure themsolvos comfortable homes cheap on
the outskirts fof the city particularly in the
West End. . The day is not far distant when
the corporation of Cincinnati will extend to
Cumminsville and wo now favor tho enlarge
ment of the boundaries and, as sure as you
are reading and we writing, there will be a
thrifty population of great numbers before
lnnny years on both sides of a street railroad,
which will be traveled by commodious oars up
the Mill Creek Valloy toward Carthage. Se
cure for yourselves now, is the advice of the
1'emht Press, a spot of ground for a home,
and access to it before another year will be as
easy as it now is for one working down town
to reach Freeman-street. All is not revealed
to us, but the glimpses that wo catch of the
future groatness of Cincinnati lead ns to watoh
its dawning in the West End.

such indication of prosperity. Go on with

arThe Boston Put, in its weekly roportof
liuanco and trade, says:
Any quantity of money can be had at six
por cent, and a commission on the right sort of
paper. The banks, however, have no difficulty
iu gotting moderate exchange on foreign pa
per at six to seven per cent. The demand for
credit is steady and considerable, but not press
ing. Outside the rates are very irregular upon
anything but notes of high repute. Even
loans that would be readily accopted by banks, if
offered by a sound customor, pay eight or nine
per cent, in the street, and loans on stocks of a
fancy kind pay twelve and upward, notwith
standing broad margins and the salablencsB
of the collateral, at somo nrico or othor. The
large brokors borrow easily at six to sovon per
cent., but do not lend under twelve, in the gen
eral way..

The last mail for the PaciDo has bcon taken

A Gigantic Swindle.
In our own country swindling oporalions
arc occasionally hoard of, anil Unit in the
caaoof the New Haven llailrond will long
bo remembered. In England also thore has
been some marvellous demonstrations of
financial ability, and now in Scotland thero
is a case which is attracting much attention.
In 1773 there was established at Curron a
company for the production of iron from tho
ore, and its manufacture into different arti
cles. They not only made grates, stoves nnd
other articles of domestic use, but also im
plements of war. Tho original capital was
only 150,000, raised by shares of 250. As
ovidonco of the prosperity of the company,
it is said that in 1S47 700 was not nn ade
quate price for a sharo. By sonio manage
ment the control of tho company was kept
la tho Dawson family until tho year 1850.
It is now alleged that this family took such
good care of their own interests as to noglcct
Ibnt of the company.
It is olaimed by the prosocution that thoy
"cooked" the accounts that they put the af
fairs of tho company in a false light. They so
managed the balance sheets as to make the
result bad when it was in roality good, their
object being to got as much stock as possible
in their own hands. It is said that since 1813
the aocounts of the company havo never boon
properly examined that the profits havo been
systematically understated, and every thing
dons to mako the stockholders believe that tho
business was not nourishing. The Dawions so
managed this that botween 1820 and 1838 the
(iMttunl amount of profits retained from the
stockholders was 17,000. The consequenco
wat that the shares of tho Company wont
down Instead of up, nnd the Dawsons always
oontrived that some member of thoir family
should purchase the shares offered for sale.
L'nliko other swindlers, they did not wish to
represent thoir company as successful when it
was not so, but tbey wiahod to concoal its
flourishing condition. Well, things wont on
pretty smoothly, the shareholders now and
then asking for accounts, until finally a dis
sension took place in the Dawson family. Tho
consequence of this was thot aftor the death of
Mr. Joseph Dawson in ISjO, the sum of
316,000 was accounted for tbo company by
the other members of the family.
Tbo allegations against tho Dawsons nro
made in a suit against the company brought
by a shareholder, who in tho yoar 1857 sold
twenty shares at tho rato of 700 por shnro,
and which wero bought by the Dawsons. 13o
lioving, from the developments mado sinco tho
sale, that be was induced to soil his shares
upon the mis-stalemonts of tho ollicers of tho
company,' tho shareholders wish the sale an
nulled, and to be replaced in bis original posi
tion. Tho wholo affair is unprecedented, and
whatever may be tho issue, it would nppoar
that for a long term of years the shareholders
wero ignorant of the financial position of tho
company. The moral likely to bo drawn from
tho of the Dawsom, is one similar

Wine, Woman and Horses.
This is the sub-heading or nn article in
Thursday's New York Tribune, relating to
tho embezzlement of over $00,000 by a trans
fer clerk of the Fulton Bank, New York a
"last" yoang gentleman, who had a salary
of $1,000 a year, and, therefore, had not even
tho excuse that he was badly paid. His
father is a gentleman of property and char
acter, who has been cashier of the bank since
its establishment, thirty-five years ego. Tho
young man, named William J. Lane, jr., is
twenty-eight years old, and married to a lady
of great beauty and accomplishments. Tho
detection of his fraud was made by his own
father, tho cashier, who communicated it to
the directors at once.
As usual, in most mischief, a wnman was
at the bottom of it all. Laue paid $1,00(1 per
annum for a houso, which ho has most ex
pensively furnished, in which resided, under
his "protccticn," a young "lady" of nine
teen, with her mother and brother also living
there quite a family party, to whom f :),OUO
was allowed to keep house.
The Tr Unite says that among other trifles
which he "bestowed upon his fair t'eiualo
cq armor, was a diamond cross valued at$l,l)UU,
a pair of gold bracelets worth $500, five dia
mond rings, two pair of diamond ear-rings, a
gold watch and chain, innumerable silk
dresses, and several other slight tokens, with
which to captivate her youthful directions."
These to the value of $7,000 have been recov
ered. Lane had also a fine livery establish
ment, in which he kept four splendid steeds,
which cost ovor $0,000 one for which $1,300
had been paid in Maine and numerous equip
ages for summer and winter use. He had not
kept a yacht, from want of time, but " had a
fancy for lotteries, and on ono occasion de
voted $1,000 as the purchase of Email interests
in schemes of great promise. For two weeks
weeks in succession, he is represented to have
spent $250 a day of his feloniously obtained
hinds In procuring lottery tickets ; ana lor all
his capital thus invested, he only drew a single
prize of $,000."
He was known to have, bocause he was fro
quently seen in in the handsomest equipp.ige
In Now York drawn by the fastest horses that
ever kicked up the dust at 2:40 on the Blooin
ingdaleroad. lie luxuriated with his "lady
friend" in the richest luxuries of tho table and
tho rarest wines. lie was scon by the bank
directors dashing away as if he were a mil
lionaire, and when some kind of inquiry was
made, suspicion, if awakened, was lulled by
his reply that he bad a profitable New Jersey
agency, and had money by employing his leis
ure hours as a book-keopor.
The question arises aro not the bank direct
ors a great deal to blame in such cases as this,
for not being a little more observant of tho
outside lives of their employees? When a
transfer clerk constantly drives a team worth
$3,000, a carriage which may havo cost $700,
would it be justice or impertinenco to ascertain
now ne came by it; in a worn, is not tno
carelessness of tho employer a frequent tiro-
mlum upon tho olork's expenditures and sub
sequent breach of honesty?

extent at Cognao, in the department of tho
Charente, the attention of the authorities has
been called to tho circumstance, ami ten of tho
onenaing parties navo been proseoutoa by the

the malady in grapes and other causes, the
production of wine has decreased of late vears
which increased the demand for brandy, and
to meet it, some unscrupulous manufacturer of
the latter artiolo resorted to adulteration, by
nixing it with tho coarser kinds of alcohols.
Five of tho accused were acquitted ; the others
wero fined in various sums, varying from 50f. to

WASHINGTON, September 28.
The dispatches rocoived by the Government
narrate with groat minuteness the recont events
in China.
Flag-officer Tatnall says that the British of
ficer in charge of the gun-boats having visited
him, said nothing about aid, but bis silent ap
peal was powerful indood. During the few
moments he was on board the Poichattan he
would look anxiously at his Admiral and at
the boat.
"After he left," contiuues officer Tatnall,
"I held a conversation with our commis
sioner, Mr. Ward. He agreed with me per
fectly that, under tho circumstances of our
position with the English, and tho aid tho
Admiral had tendered mo tho day before, I
could do no less than tow the boats to his ro
licf. I made tho offer, which was thank
fully tt.ml promptly noccpted. Whilo the
boats were making fast to tho hawsers which
I veered astern, I insisted on Mr. Ward go
ing on board one of tho junks for reasons
(and his suite leaving the Locy-Warn) which
will bo obvious. lie at first reluctantly
yielded and left us, but soon returned in ono
of the English boats, declaring that as tho
Loci- Warn was his home, and going under
lire with his approbation and concurrence,
ho would remain in her. I reluctantly
yielded to his gallant impulse."
Captain Tatnall towed the boats through
the British line to within a short distance of
the Admiral, whose ling was flying, whon,
casting them oil', he retired to the roar of tho
line and anchored for tho night. He took up
this position, as it might enable him to aid the
wounded, and, should tho boats be sunk, to
rescue their crews. In other words, to afford
all the aid consistent with neutrality.
. Having been informed by a British officer
that the Admiral was dangorously woundod,
Captain Tatnall went in a barge to visit him,
when, within a few feet of the Comorant, a
round shot struok the boat, killing the oox
swain, Mr. Hunt, of Brooklyn, New York, and
slightly wounding Flag-Lioutonant Trcnchard.
They reached the Comoraul before tho boat
was entirely sunk.
Captain Tatnall snys that tho Chinese com
missioners had previously notified Mr. Ward
of their arrangements, and requested him to
accompany tno liniisn and urensn ministers
to Poiho. To this he consented, thereby to a
certain extont assuming tho platform with tho
latter.
The sincerity of tho commissioner was much
doubtod at tho time.

Tho foreign nows by tho (Hrcwman at St.
