Washington, D. 0., Sept, 19. Tho
Treasury (lag. which lia3 connected with it
bo much of historical interest, has at last
been given a permanent place of security
in a caso constructed for it in tho room of
tho Captain of tlio "Watch. This flag is a
largo banner made of silk, presented by
tho ladles of tho department to tlio Treasury
Regiment when it left for tho field.
Upon tho day of tho assassination of
President Lincoln it was borrowed by Mr.
Ford to decorate the box which it was expected
tho President nnd General Grant
would occupy that evening. It so
however, that Gen. Graut decided
to go to New Jersey to visit his wife and
children, nnd was not in the box. As is
well known tho President went and was
shot by Booth. When tlio assassin turned
to escape his spur caught in tho flag, and
he was thrown so heavily as to break a
log. This Treasury flag is tho ono in
which the Bpur caught. There is in its
folds now a jagged blit several inches in
length cut by tho rowells of the spur, not
far from tho upper side of tho flag, about
midway down tho stripe. For some years
after tho event at Fork's the flag was kept
rolled up on tho staff in the basement of
tho building, but finally being in the way
of tho firemen it was brought to tho room
of the Captain of tlio Watch, it
was unfurled and hung across the wall below
a large portrait of Lincoln, exposed
to the dust and entirely without protection.
It hung thero for some ninoyears,
till now, when, as stated nbovo, it has

Philadelphia, Sept. 19. American
detectives recently received notification
from the Brazilian Government that that
country was being Hooded with spurious
bank notes, which, it was supposed, were
being stiuck oil" in this country, and they
were warned to arrest a man who had
been under police surveillance in several
Brazilian towns, and who would arrive
in New York in .March. The suspected

of this city, and though ho was not

"Tony" Halo, and on the following night
a heavy box was carried into Halo's residence

the morning a squad of detective nis'de
a raid on the place and Hale was foirni
asleep. In his rooms wcio found a i owi
hand-press, used for Hlliogr.ipiiMi.',
nnd an immense quantity of material lor

thing wanting to complete n counterfeited
outfit were the plates. Hale was tiken to
Polico Headquarters, where he baid Unit
he had been approached by Eduiouon, .who
divulged a scheme whereby tlioy
should amass a fortune by Hooding
Brazil with ' spurious Government
notes. Edmondson avsuml
tlio placing of the notes, and only
asked Hale's cooperation in their manufacture.
Halo professes to have acceded
to the proposition for tho solo purpose oi
trapping his confederate and turning him
over to tho authorities. He,

they were waiting for their delivery to begin
operations. Edmondson was also
arrestcdand refused to make any statement.
Hale and Edmondson went to
Brazil on tho Collins expedition) which
loft this city during tho winter of 1878.
Hale fled the country in order to avoid
arrest and Edmondson went as an engineer.
Tho latter is the son of a well known
merchant tailor of this city and Ilale is a
familiar figure in the criminal record of
Philadelphia. In all of, his crooked
operations ho has posed as a detective. It
is supposed that the Brazilian authorities
have conclusivo evidence against Edmondson.

' Washington, D. C, Sept. 10. A paragraph
has found its way into print purporting

Miles was to, go from Van Couvor to
Fort Leavenworth, Hancock romnin at

Chicago, Popo to San Francisco and Mao- j

trouble with this programme is that tho
matter has been-given no consideration at
tho Department whatever, and no plans
have been made. It is understood that
Miles wants to comoeabtof the mountains,
owing to dissatisfaction with tho Pacific
slope, and Hancock prefers to stay in Now

Philadelphia, Sept. 10. Early in the

was found at tho foot of the third-story
stairway at her residence, No. 1 139
Carmae street. Although sho had fallen
down stairs thero was nothing to show that
tho fall had killed her, and it is believed
that sho committed suicido by taking
poison. She was seen at night very much
intoxicated. Mrs. Reynolds was very
handsome nnd Well educated, nnd when
sober her conversation was bright and
pleasing. It is supposed that poverty and
tho neglect of her friends drove her to
suicide. Her npartments wero in great
confusion. On the bureau was a piece of
brown paper addressed to her daughter,
and with the following words written on
it: "Ella: Good-bye, I can wait no
longer." Some dregs with a peculiai
smell wero found in tho, bottom of a

on tlio Charles FrnncU Adams
Boston, Sept, v10; The sensation of tho
day in political circles has been the revival
of tho story that Governor Butler
will bo a candidate for re-election. Tho
Republican papers aro full of gossip
based on tho assumption that Butler will
not run, nnd tho talk of tho .street is that
tlio Governor is alarmed by tho statements
of tho largo sums .of money the "saints"
propose to put into the campaign to bent
him. General Butler is rich, but does
not like to spend his money, and it is hard
to induce him to put his thousands against
tho tens of thousnnd tho Republicans
threaten to expend. Tho Democrats have
a strong organization and if Butler runs it
will be tested to its utmost ; but it will take
money to maintain it. Tlo Republicans
will have on the stump nn army of distinguished
men, ninny of whom take little
part in an ordinary campaign and it will
be hard to find Democratic orators to
meet them. But the persiotent clamor of
his followers and his own fear that withdrawal
will bo construed into an acknowledgment
of defeat is likely to force the
Gen. into the field. With the Presidential
bee buzzing in his bonnet ho will not want
to acknowledge deteat till he is forced to
to do so. Tlio ostentatious letter from
Charles Francis Adams, jr., announcing
that he can not allow ids namo to go

ridiculed mercilessly, as it is known that
there was not the blighest prospect of his
receiving any considerable number of

BLISS AND HIS YACHT.
How Ho VtH Made to IaV tho Ton
ii ago Tax and font.
Alexandria Bay, Sept, 10. A good
story is told hero of George Bliss and how
Secretary Folder mado him pay the
tax on his, hired yacht. It appears
that Colonel Bliss after ho got through
with tho trial came to the St.
Lawrence. Ho hired a yacht for the reason
nnd set about enjoying himself with
his family. The Uuited States Inspector,
uponexaminingjio register numbcr,f otind
that tho tax had not been paid mid
notified Colonel Bliss that it must
bo settled nt once. Tho Colonel
paid no attention to tho notice and finally
tho officer seized tlio yacht and
tied it to tho wharf, placing nn officer in
charge. Colonel Bliss's pleasure was interfered
with and he was vexed at the
officer of tlio Government of which ho
considers himself a part in interfering
with him. Unable to induce the officer to
evado his duty Colonel Bliss telegraphed
to Secretary Folger to direct the ollicial to
release the yacht. Tho inspector hod in
the meantime telegraphed to Wellington
what ho had dono and why he so acted, so
that Secretary Folger was fully appraised
of tho situation. Mr. Folger at once
telegraphed to Colonel Bliss tliat upon his
paying the tax and tho costs tho yacht
would be released, and notified the ollicial
inspector of that fact. The gallant Colonel
was thus compelled to p.iy up before
he could use his yacht, and his income
from tho Star-route caso was depleted that
much. It is reported that bo has ever
since been delivering lectures on the outrage
committed by tho Federal officials in
interfering with tho rights and pleasures

flag was seen to bo waved from tho white
object as a signal of distress. As tho tug
approached a raft containing four human
beings could bo plainly discerned,
tossing about on tho waves. On tho raft
were Captain Stephens, Robert Hanna,
Charles Dixon and another sailor, whoso
namo could not be learned. Thoy wcro in
a most pitiable plight, and almost completely
exhausted. For thirty-six hours
they had been tossed about at tho mercy
of the waves, drenched to the skin, and
freezing in tho bitter wind. Not a
thing had they had to eat or drink, and
it required their every exertion
to keep from being washed from
their frail craft by the waves. Captain
Stephens was almost entirely naked, a
blurt being tho only pieco of apparel to
protect him from tho cold and water. Almost
dead from cold nnd exposure, tho
captain nnd his 'comrades wero lifted on

London, Sept 10. Tho Times, in tracing
tho antecedents of O'Donnell, finds ho
is years of age, a nativo of
County Donegal, Ireland. Has
been to America several times, served in
the American war, lived for somo time in
Philadelphia and kept a public houso on
tho Canadian border. Ho invested his funds
in silver mines and in Fenian bonds and
lost his money. Ho returned to Ireland
last May, and frequented tho company of
Irish Americans in Londonderry. Ho
carried a revolver, and was considered
a strong Nationalist, but, was opposed
to tho Invincibles. Ho denounced Carey,
when tho latter turned informer, and declared
ho would not shoot, but would
burn him by inches, llo went to tho
Capo to seek work because ho considered
America played out. He had never seen
Caroy boloro taking passage and had no
idea tho informer was on board the steamer
Kinfaun's Castlo when ho embarked.
Tho defense will probably be that Carey
tried to shoot the prisoner who wrenched
tho revolver away and used it to protect
lib own life.

Just beforo his dentil he had played at a
oncert hall on the Bowery kept by Sandy
Spencer, who first introduced him to tho
public years ago, and has always been his
