.A.Washington letter to the New Tork
8un relates an incident connected with the
suspension of the First National Bank of
'the former ci'y which shows that a banking
house of the highest pretensions at the Fed
eral capital, enjoying the special patronage
of the Administration, can sometimes stoop
to practices which are as discreditable as
the tricks of a Peter Funk
auction-sbop or an old-time wild cat bank.
A staff officer of the army went to the
First National Bank about noon on tbe day
of its suspension, but before any intimation
had been given that it was not
perfectly sound, and deposited about
$5,000. The money was counted
and received, and the depositor congratu
lated himself that bis money was safely
lodged in the keeping of those renowned
bankers the Cookes, who byiho extraor
dinary favor of several administrations had
amassed a fortune of many millions out of
nothing. The officer went down tho stair
case, followed by the janitor, who immedt
dlately began to dose the doors. The offi
cer asked why he did this, and the janitor
replied that he was only obeyiDg orders.
Alarmed by this sign, he returned up stairs,
demanded his money, and was answered,
"It is too late." The Sun's letter adds:

Most questions have two sides, and it is
wise to look at both. While we in Mem

with burned tar and sulphur, here comes a
learned gentleman of Mobile, to-wit: Je
rome Cochran, M. D., professor of public
hygiene and medical jurisprudence in the
medical college of Alabama, and senior cen
sor ol the State Medical Association, who
seriously questions if there be any disinfec
tant virtue in those crude materials
of our sanitary regulations. Professor

In the Mobile Begister, of a late
date on this eubject, and fortifies himself
behind some stubborn facts. He is evident

of Mobile is peculiarly applicable to Mem
' So here we are at sea. And where ard
we now to look for safety? Clearly, as we
have contended from the first, in our own
acts, in the purity of our homes and prem

learned doctors who never did agree, is that
safe guide of conduct the experience of
mankind, which supplements the Scriptural
truth, that cleanliness is next to godliness,

St. Louis, Oct. 28 It appears that the
Continental left the wharf with an Insuffi
cient head of steam and while rounding to
in the stream she was struck by tbe high
wind prevailing and blown to the Illinois
shore where sho was boarded by the East
St. Louis police. Tbe. captain, engineer
and mate and Jack Looney and Arthur
Chambers were arrested, and taken to the
office of the chief of police where they now
are. As soon as released by the city au
thorities Looney and Chambers will be ar
rested by sheriff Coopar, of Madison county,
for participation in the McCoole-Allen fight
a month ago, indictments having been
found against them in that county. Word
of the condition of affairs here have been
sent to Allen and Hogan, who are down
the river waiting the arrival of the steamer
to pick them up.
Looney declares the fight shall come off
to-dav if be can get out of the clutches of
the police in time, but what Is more likely
'it will come off to-morrow with only a
small crowd of spectators. Tnere are all
sorts of reports circulating to the effect that
the steamer was purposely allowed to drift
to the Illinois shore, so that double excur
sion money might be made, but the truth of
these rumors cannot be verified. The crowd
on the Continental are said to have num
bered nearly 15,000; that about $4,000 was
taken, and that the party was the roughest
ever got together. A great crowd still re
mains in Eist St. Louis and it is expected a
desperate row will occur before they dis

Court, in January next, for violating the
law regarding prize fighting, and of $2,000
to appear at the Madison Court, Monday
next, to answer an indictment for partic i
pating in the Allen-McCoole mill a month
ago. Allen's offense is a penitentiary one,
not less than 1 nor more than 10 years.
It is said the stakeholder, James Egan,
has decided the fight shall take place two
weeks from to-day. Arthur Chambers
who escaped from the East St. Louis police
officer eluded pursuit and is now In this
city. Sheriff Cooper, -of Madison county,
has warrants for Arthur Chambers, John

Blake, Patsey Shepherd and Tom Kelly, and
stated that measures will be immedi
ately taken to precuro their arrest and
bring them to trial.
' The fancy are very much excited to-night
at to-day'a fiasco. Jack Looney insists he
has been sold; that the Continental was not
blown on the Illinois shore, and that It was
a put up job in tbe interest of Hogan. On
the other hand Capt.Keefe and Mr. McCoy,
the. principal owners of the Continental,
will publish cards to morrow stating the
steamer was blown out of the control of
the pilot, and that tbe landing at East St.

the epidemic is declared abated. The bonds
were entered into and the parties released.
The action of fahenil Taylor is considered
unprecedented. The arrests grew out of

disposing of cotton consigned to thorn by

Vatican, Aug. 7, 1873. Your Majesty:
Measures which have been adopted by your
Majesty's Government for some time past,
all aim more and more at the destruction of
Catholicism. When I seriously ponder
over the causes wnicn may have
led to these very hard means,
I confess I am unable to
discover any reasons for such a course.
On the other hand, l am informed that
your Mojesty does not countenance the
proceedings of your government, and does
not approve the harshness of the measures
adopted against tbe Catholic religion. If,
then,lt be true that your Majesty doe i not ap
prove thereof, and letters which your August
Majesty has addressed to me formerIy,micbt
sufficiently demonstrate that you cannot ap
prove that which is now occurring; if, I say,
your Majesty doe3 not approve ot your gov
ernment continuing in tne pain it nas
chosen of further extending its vigorous
measures against the religion of Jesus
Christ, whf reby the latter Is most Injurious
ly affected, will your Majesty, then, not be
come convinced that these measures have
no other effect than that of undermining
your Majesty's own throne? I speak with
frankness, for my banner is truth. I speak
in order to fulfill one of my duties, which
consists in telling the truth to all, even to
those who are not Catholics, for every one
who has besn baptized belongs in some
way, which to define more precisely would
be here outj of place belongs, I
say, to the Pope. I cherish the
conviction that your Majesty will receive
my observations with your usual goodness
and will adopt measures necessary in the
present case. While offering to ypur most
gracious Mjesty the expression o'f my de
votion and esteem, I pray to God that he
may enfold your Majesty and myself in one
and the same bond of mercy. Pio.
The Emperor replied.
Berlin, Sept.3, 1873- lam glad your
Holiness has, as In former times, done me
the hanor to write to me. I rejoice more
at this since an opportunity is thereby af
forded me of correcting errors which, as
appears from the contents of the letter of
your Holiness of the 7th of August, must
have occurred in communications you
have rece'ved relating to German af
fairs. If reports which aro made to your
Holiness respecting German questions, only
stated tno truth, it would not
be possible for you to entertain
the supposition tint my government enters
upon a path which 1 do not approve. Ac
cording to the constitution of my States,
such a case cannot happen, since laws and
government measures in Prussia require
my consent as Soverign. To my deep sor
row a portion of my Catholic subjects have
organized for the past two j ears a political
party which endeavors to disturb, by in
trigues hostile to the State, the
relielous peace which has ex
isted in Prussia for centuries. Lead
ing Catholic priests have unfortunately
not only, approved this movement, but
joined in it to the extent of open revolt
against existing laws, it wiu not nave es
caped tbe observation of your Holiness that
similar indications manifest themselves at
the present time in several European and
in some trans-atlantlc States. It is not my
mission to investigate the causes by which
tho clergy and tho faithful of one Chris
tian denomination can be induced to
assist the enemies of all law, but it certainly
is my mission to protect internal peace and
preserve the authority of law in the States
whose government has been entrusted to
me by God. I am conscious that I owe
hereafter an account of the accomplishment
of this, my kingly duty. I shall maintain or
der and law in my States against all attacks
as long a3 God gives me power.
I am in duty bound to do it as a christian
monarch, even when to my sorrow I have
to fulfill this royal duty against servants of
the church which I suppose acknowledges
no less than the Evangelical Church, that
commandment of obedience to secular
authority Is an emanation of the, revealed
will of God. Many of the priests in Prus
sia, subject lo your Holiness, disown, to
my regret, Christian doctrine In this
prospect. My government under necessity
is supported by a great mjjority of my loyal
Catholic and Evangelical subjects, nt ex
torting obedience to law by worldly'means.
I willingly entertain the hope that jour
Holiness, upon being informe I of tho true
position of affairs, will use your authority
to put an end to the agitation carried on.
Amid the deplorable distortion of truth and
abus3 of priestly authority the religion of
Jesus Christ has, as I attest to your Holiness,
bsfore God nothing to do with these in
trigues, more than has truth, whore banner
is invoked by your holiness, I unreservedly
sabsc ibe. There is one more expression
in your letter of your Holiness which I
cannot pass over without contradiction, al
though it Is not based on previous Informa
tion, namely, tho expression that every ono
that has received baptism belongs to the
Pope. The Evangelical creed which, asj
must be known to your holiness, I, like my
ancestors and the majority of my subjects,
profess, does not permit us to accept in our
relation to God any other mediator than
our Lord Jesus Christ. Difference of be
lief does not prevent me from living In
p3ace with those who do not share mine,
and offering you Holiness the expression of
my personal devotion and esteem.

THE COMING WOMAN.
A Community la Which Me a Will be
From Boston Telegram.
The eslab ishment of a woman's com
munity within the limits of the town of
oborn, about twelve miles from Boston,
was began yesterday by tbe formal raising
of the frame of the first building. In this
community all the land Is to be owned by
women, and so far as the management cf
the affairs of the village .is con
cerned, woman suffrage Is to .he re
alized to tbe extent, of the utter political
disqualification of the sterner sf x. The mem
bers or tne community are oougea to assent
to a constitution which is to govern it, but
further than this they are unrestrained; ex
cept, however, that they are expected to
attend at least once a week upon the ua
sectariin service to be held. The occupa
tion of the residents in Aurora vil
lage will be varied and industrial schools
are provided to &i persons for the differ
ent kinds of work to be done, including
a domestic school for instruction in
home duties. Each homestead Is to be ac
companied with a garden, and gardening
and fruit-raising will be a favorite occupa
tion. Co-operative schemes are also plan
ned. One of these, and that which has
been pushed nearer to realization than any
other connected with the enterprise, is the
establishment of a laundry where full
facilities are to he afforded for doing work
on a large scale, and bringing money Into
this thus far needy village by com
peting with famous Troy laundries. AbouC
ono thousa'd persons are committed to the
enterprise, though they are not all women
and not to be residents. The site of tho
village is a wilderness, and it offers all
manner of obstacles. The community is
called "Ihe Women's Economical Garden
Homestead League," and li U established
by act of the State Legislature.

George reflected a moment. There was'nt
another boy or another hatchet within fif

that to be virtuous is to be happy. Just as
Washington senior tnrned to go in and get
bis horsewhip, our little hero burst into
tears, and, nestling among his father's coat
tails, exclaimed: "Father, I cannot tell a
lie. It must have been a frost."

Abraham Lincoln Early in the war a
party of distinguished gentlemen from New
England called on Mr. Lincoln to urge the
appointment of a certain Mr. Brown to the
post of quartermaster. The President, who
was amusing himself by splitting portions
of the staircase of the White House into
rails, received them cordially. They stated
their errand in an earnest but respectful
tone, and calmly awaited his answer. Mr.
Lincoln, drawing himself up to his fall
height and clapping the spokesman of the
party on the shoulder, began to tell a story
about a dog-fight he onca saw in Kentucky.
By and by it had gradually grown dark;
several hours had passed away, and neither
dog appeared to get killed or to gain any
advantage over the, ether. One by one the
pirty had dropped out, till tbe leader (who
did not wish to disturb Mr. Lincoln's hold
on his shoulder) was left alone, trying to
conceal a yawn and to look interested.
Suddenly Mr. Lincoln, with that peculiar
smile on his countenance which Mr. Car
penter can talk about, but can't paint, re
marked, "By tbe way, my friend, I'm orry
for Brown, but I gave that appointment to
the other man yesterday."
Daniel Webster. The following an
ecdote of the great Massachusetts states
man has never before appeared in print:
One day Clay, Webster and Calhoun met
upon the steps of the Capitol. Mr. Clay
ventured to remark, In his most affibla
style, that it looked like rain. Calhoun
looked wise, but said nothing. Evidently
he tock in the whole situation at a glance.
It was a crisis for Webster. Carefully lay
ing hi3 thumb behind the third brass but
ton of his blue coat, he gazed from out of
those cavernous eyes and prandly uttered
these prophetic words: "No, gentlemen,
the American people will never forsake the
Constitution. We shall have fair weather."
