PERSONAL TO THE PRESIDENT.
The president, although still suffering
from rheumatic pains in Ids knees, was
able to resume ollicial routine today. He
received an unusually large number of
congressional visitors in the forenoon.
About noon he repaired to the east room,
shook hands with members of Gabriel K.

REPORTS ON RIVERS AND HARBORS.
The annual report of the Mississippi
river commission for the fiscal year ended
June o0, 1826, was transmitted to the
house of representatives today by the sec
retaiy of war. The report shows that no
field or survey work was done during the
year beyond the care and preservation of
property and small unnaiis. Xo construc
tion work was doucWaow Cairo owin- to
the failure of the appropriation. "The
value of the government plant employed
between the Des Moines river and the
head of the passes is approximately stated
at .-51,001,000, which is :i'cdu:-tion in value
of $20,000 since the date of the last repoit,
representing the deterioration duiing the
period of disuse.
The operations between the Des Moines
river aud Cairo were confined to the con
struction and repair of dams, revetment
work and minor work of short protection
betweeu the Illinois and Ohio rivers. Ow
ing to luck of rands operations were con
lined to such repairs as were necessary to
prevent loss, and additions that seemed ad
visable in view of the action of existing
works. A minimum channel of eight feet
has been maintained for twenty-two miles
below St. Louis, while a least depth of five
and one-half feet is reported in that paitof
the river which has not been improved.
The work in the Fourth district (harbors
of Xatchez, Vidalia and Xew Orleans,
mouth of Jtlie Red River and Chafalair
harbor) was confined to the mouth of the
Red river. X new leveo work was done
during the vear.
At the beginning of the fiscal year the J
balance on hand was n.1,2i8 for surveys
and sll."5,S71 for general improvement. It
is estimated that for the next fiscal year an
appropriation of $100,000 will bs required
for survey work, $100,000 for expenses of
the commission, $5,000,000 for continuing
tlie improvement on the Mississippi river
and 51,0fl."i.(00 for the improvement of the
harbors of Columbus, Hickman, Memphis,
Greenville and Xew Orleans.
The report of the Missouri river com
mission is also transmitted to congress to
day. After detailing the work done dur
ing the year the commission recommends
that at least $100,000 be appropriated for
continuing the improvement of the
river in addition to any other
sums which congress may see
fit to devote to the work at special" locali
ties. With a smaller sum than this it is
said it will be many years before the work
will cover a sufficient extent of river to en
able the proper estimate to be formed as to
its c(t and value to the country. Xo en
gincerius: difficulty has as vet presented
itself to suggest any doubt as to the possi
bility of carrying the work to successful
completion. ror surveys, examinations,
salaries and expenses, the commission re
commends an appropriation of $130,000.
The estimate for the general improvement
of the Missouri river from its mouth to
Sioux City, la., is 100,000. On July
IS'0. there was an available balance
hand of .$90,300

Comptroller Trenholm will appear before
the -house committee on banking and cur
rency next Wednesday by invitation to ex
pound his views relating to the national
banking system. Several members of the
committee express a determination to se
cure action if possible on some remedial
measure touching the relations between the 1
national banks and the government.
Mr. Samuel H. Walker, late major and
superintendent of police, has written a long
letter to the district commissioners asking
that he be reinstated. In one of the open
ing paragraphs he says: It is a self-evident
proposition that no man can fearless
ly execute the laws and give peace and se
curity to the community, who is himself
besmirched with crime, or who has any
affiliation with those classes who are direct
ly the subjects of the watchful care of the
police department. He then goes on to
say that his administration of "the depart
ment was without fear and with
out reproach; but notwithstanding
all this the commissioners, after
expressing entire confidence in him, asked
his resignation on Xov. 2-i, without pre
vious notice and without consideration of
the evidence. Besides this, by persistent
urging and with the assurance that their
report would justify him, the commission
ers induced him to date his resignation
nine days back.
Mr. Walker asserts that the commission
ers did not fulfill their promise, and asks
them to reconsider the whole case and re
UNAVAILING PRESSURE. '
Mr. Trenholm, csmptroUcr of currency,
received today three petitions from bank
ers and merchants asking for the retention
ot 3lr. fccnua as bank examiner at ow
AorK. i ne comptroller m a lenjitny an
swer to the petitioners tells them why he is
unwilling to retain the examiner, and
closes his communication as follows
Pressure, with political, social or financial
bearings, is a dangerous element to be in
traduced into so dlicato an adjustment as
that ot the relations between the comp
trailer and the national bank examiner.
Washington, D. C. Dec. 11. On mo
tion of Mr. Peters, of Kansas, a bill was
passed extending the laws of the United
States over certain unorganized territory
south of Kansas known as the Public
Strip, providing that this land be subject
to entry under the homestead law.
Mr. Randall, of Pennsylvania, moved
that the house proceed to the consideration
of the sundry civil appropriation bill, but
the motion was lost yeas 119, nays 121.
In the morning hour Mr. Payson, of Il
linois, on behalf of the committee on pub
lic lands, called up the bill declaring the
forfeiture of the Ontonogau and Crule
river land grant. In detailing the circum
stances of tlie graut Mr. Payson declared
that from the organization of the Ontono
gan and Crule river company no steps has
ever been taken by it which did not indi
cate that the organization had been purely
speculative aud effected for the purpose of
getting land from the general government.
It had been an attempt at barefaced rob
bsry from its "commencement down to the
present time. The bill was passed without
division. It forfeits 3S4.G00 acres.
The house t tia weat into the committee
of the whole, Mr. Ihimmo&d, of Georgia,
in the chair, on the .itindry civil appropria
In the course of the general debate Mr.
Lanham, of Texas, made an appeal in fa
vor of the redemption of the trade dollars,
and alluding to the standard silver dollars
he declared that its coinage would never be
suspended, no matter who might recom
mend to the contrary.
Mr. Herbert, of Alabama, said that while
the sundry civil bill appropriated less than
the bill of lat 3'ear, the decrease was at
tributable to the fact that the committee
on appropriations had surrendered
jurisdiction over the items for
navy yards and the new naval obser
vatory, maintaining that these
items could be provided for in the regular
naval appropriation bill. He contended
on the contrary that the appropriations for
the objects named should bo made in the
sundry civil bill which would then instead
of showing a decrease exceed in amount of
appropriations the bill of last vear.
Mr. Randall, of Pennsylvania, anrued
that the naval committee had proper juris- j Dchiiv, John Dennv, GeorccSHvey, Frank
diction over the subject of navy jards, , Wmrlit and K E. Denny." They will be

The Plucky Little Teuton Stuck to

Xew York, Dec. 11. In the 3IcQuade
trial this moruiui: the reudiug of documen
tary evidence was continued. At the close
Clerk Toomey was cross-examined by Mr.
Xewcomb, but nothing new was developed.
Carrie Metz, a servant, testified that in
188-i she was in service in the house adjoin
ing that of Alderman McLaughlin in which
t.ie alledged 'combine" of boodle aldermen
was formed. She testified that in the
month of June she was called the
door by a riug of the bell.
On the steps were live men who inquired
for McLaughlin's house; the went into
McLaughlin's house. A week later three
men made the same inquiry; later iu the
morning several more came. She saw
them come out of McLaughlin's later in
the evening. Witness was asked to look
at the audience and see if she reognized
anyone as one of the callers. The little
German girl, after glancing around slowly,
finally pointed with her linger saying:
Yes, sir; that gentleman is one ot them.
Every eye was centered upon Alderman
Is there anyone else in the room whom
you recognize as one of the men you saw?
There was another gaze about the room
and then the finger pointed at the prisoner.
Fulgratr was also identified. Then Mr.
Xicull brought out the fact that he had
called upon the witness and she had ideu
titled in a group Fulgraff. Dempscy,
O'Xeil, Reilley and McQuade; also that
yesterday in the court room she had iden
tified Fulgraff, Duffy and McQuade as vis
itors whom she had seen at McLaughlin's.
Mr. Xewcomb tried his misleading tac
tics on her, but the witness was too sharp
to be caught.
Lawyer Xewcomb then addressed the
jury. In openiug the case for tho de
fense, after scoring Fulgraff and Duffy,
the informer, he outlined the defense. He
had an important witness who was
out of town on the first trial
on a hunting trip. This witness would
swear that he entered the public
door of the aldermanic chamber after 0 a.
m. on August 30th, 18S0. Reporter Ker
nan was mistaken; he would prove that
Kernau never went into the cloak room
nor tried thS public door, he would prove
that Kernau heard the story in Morrow's
barbershop and congratulated himself on
having a "heat" on the reporter.
That gentleman, she said. McQuade
arose with his hand on his bosom and
pointed to himself: Yes, look again; can
you see any one elc? The witness half
arose again in a moment her eye rested and
her face brightened.
There is one, she said, that gentleman.
This time a big man near the rail "arose, but
the witness was not positive, and all efforts
to make her say different was futile.
Another effort was made and she pointed
to McLeary. When he stood up she said
he was the man she meant.

St. Luis. Dec. 11. Firo broke out in
the exteiibive establishment of the A. T.
Shaplev and Cantwell Co., on the corner
of Main and Vine streets, at 2:20 p. in. and
has now obtained such headway that the
entire concern will doubtless be destroyed.
The roof has fallen in and most of the
floors have already Iwen burned. It is re
ported that some of the clerks were injured
by falling lloors.
"3:03 p.m. It is now definitely known
that many jcrons were badly injured, 12
of whom 'tis expected will ie.
The firm did a large business in fire arms
and gunpowder, and had in .store a quan
tity of dynamite. Some of the latter ex
ploded "when the roof and lloors fell in.
The names of the injured cannot yet be
known owing to the great confusion which
prevails in the vicinity of the fire, which is
still burning liercely.
