ARRANGEMENTS FOR A SITTING
OF THE POTTER COMMITTEE.
REPORTS THAT SECRETARY 6FIERMAH AND
CONKLINO WILL TESTIFY SPECIE TO BR
TRANSPORTED BT MAIL IN REGISTERED
PACKAGES THE HEAT AT WASHINGTON
SALARIES TO BE PAID IN GOLD MISCEL
Washington, July 20. Yesterday the
themometer here was 08 degrees in the
shade at the signal office, and in rarious
places around town was at 100 degrees and
higher. The location of Washington, the
width of its streets and avenues, giving free
circulation to the air, and the numberless
grassy parks and reservations, render such
extreme heat more endurable than in other
cities, and prevent the fatal effects which
have tills season leen ao noticeabln elaa.
where. It is beginning to le known
through,.,.. tio vim! world that Washing
ton has a location unsurpassed for beauty
and healthfulness, and that the gradually
developing plan of the city, and the excel
lent sewer system inaugurated by the
board of public works are adding yearly to
its attractiveness in both respecta.
Secretary Sherman is preparing to pay
silver and gold for small demands against
the government. It is not unlikely that the
salaries of government officers will be paid
in coin for July. Whether or not payments
in coin can be maintained after once being
commenced, it is certain that tho secretary
will make tho attempt. There could be no
more serious injury to the credit of the
country than to "resumo" and then be com
pelled to go back to the use of depreciated
currency. The secretary, however, lias no
fears, and believes a revival of all kinds of
business will immediately take place after
Comment, not always favorable, is made
on the proposal to have a part of Mr. Pot
ter's committee sit at Atlantic City during
tho summer. So far as the expense to tho
government is concerned, they may as well
sit there as elsewhere, and, as the necessity
of the Committee has been demonstrated it
is hardly fair to criticise the selection of a
comfortable location. The Sub-Committee
will commence proceedings at Alantic City
on the 23rd. Thero will be good ground of
complaint, however, if, as is now said, the
"visiting statesmen" only will be examined
there, and that without thorough cross-examination.
Tho Committee was not order
ed solely for tho purpose of exposing the
perjury and other crimes of tho lower class
of Louisiana politicians.
Other Committees, the necessity for
which is not so plain as in the caso of Mr.
Potter's Committee, have permission to sit
during tho recess, and will have their ses
sions at Saratoga and other watering places.
One of tho districts in which a portion of
the Democracy is attempting to prevent the
renomination and re-election of a Repre
sentative who lias rellected credit upon the
country nnd the party, and has been espe
cially useful to his constituents, is the
Alexandria, Va., district. Mr. llunton
is the able and honest and experienced
legislator who, if possible, is to bo dis
placed. The whole policy is wrong, and in
this caso would bo especially mischievous
in its results. Mr. llunton is not only
honest beyond reproach, and altovo the
averago congressman in ability, And tho
peoplo of his district will make a gravo
mistako in dropping h!m at this rimo.
Washtkoton, July 21. Secretary flhor
man and counsel, Judge Shollabargor, leave
Monday for Atlantic City. He expects to
be examined Tuesday or Wednesday. A
memlKr of the Potter Committeo now in tho
city is authority for the statement that Sena
tor Conkling will be invited and is expect
ed to testify. Mr. Conkling is understood
to be in possession of many highly interest
ing facts bearing on matters under investi
gation, and it is believed that tho recent re
moval of his political friends of New York
will induce him to unlxKom himself freely
of all he knows of the administration or its
friends. Mr. Potter, shortly Utforo ad
journment, threw out ominious hints alxmt
a very important witness for whoso examin
ation Gen. IJutler was making elaborate
preparations. Tho impression generally
prevails that tho mysterious person referred
to is none other than Mr. Conkling. Gen.
Butler's visit to New York is for the pur
pose of consulting with Mr. Potter respect
ing lie examination of the visiting states
men ami tho MacVeagh commissioners.
TRANRIMHTATION OF SPECIE.
The transportation of specie from one
point to another under tho near approach to
specie resumption becomes a question for
the consideration of tho treasury depart
ment. Heretofore tho express companies
have lcen relied upon, but their charges,
while perhnps not extravagant, have neces
siarly aggregated largo sums. Two or
three years ago congress directed the trans
portation of mutilated currency and the
distribution of internal revenue stamps by
the registered letter system and the ex
periment proved entirely satisfactory in the
matter of security and promptness and a
large saving has lecn effected thereby.
Recently the sub-treasurer in San Francisco
has been called upon for silver certificates
in exchange for gold and silver coin, and
these certificates used for remittances to the
east, leaving tho coin in San Francisco,
thus throwing the burden of transportation
this long distance upon the government.
How this can be most economically and
safely done has been a subject of considera
tion not only by the treasurer but in the
cabinet, and on Saturday morning Secretary
Sherman notified tho postmaster-general
that he proposed to avail himself of tho
facilities of the postal system and send his
coin by the mails as third-class matter, the
postage on which is one cent per ounce on
packages. Being limited to four pounds
this would make the cost on four pounds of
gold (alout 1,000) sixty-four cents,
while the express charges would be from
five to ten dollars. Of course any number
of four poucd packages could he mode up,
so there would be really no limit to tho
amount that could be so transmitted. The
post office department would prefer the
coin sent as it sends its own stationery,
envelops, postal cards, etc. in registered
packages. But this would, without any
actual increase of expense, make it appear
nominally much greater than letter postage;
but as it is the government, there would be
no real increase of cost. The treasury de
partment, however, dissents from this, as it
increases their expenses the same amount
that it increases the postal revenue, and
diminishes tho appropriation for carrying
on a postal service. A lengthy conference
was held on Rutnrdav WtwrpMn Swretarv
Hlierman and Scconil-Ahniatant Postmaster
General Brady, at which the subject was
discussed. But what conclusion these gen
tlemen reached has not transpired; it is
probable, however, that the coin will be
sent as third class and that the postoffice
department will, for its own protection,
provide itself with small safes similar to
those used by postmasters, and adopt the
registry system for third class matter.
ALBANY VISITED BY A DESTRUCTIVE WIND
6TORJC- HOUSES UNROOFED AND THE GAS
WORKS DEMOLISHED COPIOUS SUPPLY OF
WIND AND RAIN IN NEW ENGLAND.
Albany, July 21. At 11 a. m. to-day a
cyclone struck the northern part of the city,
known as North Albany, carrying destruct
ion before it. The stables of the Watervliet
Horse Railroad company were unroofed, a
wing blown down and twenty-three horses
buried in the debris, four of which were
killed and twelve injured. The retort
house of the People's Gas company was
blown down, tho gits tank containing two
hundred thousand feet of gas was taken up
and torn to shreds and deposited
in different localities, part of tho roof was
blown over the river. In the lumlier dis
tricts boards were blown about in the most
miscellaneous manner, being broken, spilt
and twisted into thousands of peices and
being blown into the river. The damage
to houses in the vicinity was alarming, two
of them being blown down and unroofed.
There were no lives lost but several narrow
escapes occured. The only serious accident
occurred to William Lake, w ho was struck
on the head with a piece of slate, which
broke, filling his scalp with small pieces.
Tin; cyclone came from the southwest, pas
siirg over an area of about a quarter of a
mile. It lasted about a minute and a half.
The damage is estimated at about 100,000.
Boston, July 21. A furious storm of
wind and rain, accompanied by heavy
thunder and vivid lightning, burst over the
city about 4:30 this afternoon. Tho rain
continued falling for about an hour, when
thesky became clear. A rctreshing atmos
phere is tho result to-night, but indications
point to a warm tlay to-morrow.
THE STORM IN NEW YORK.
New York, July 21. This morning tho

Salt Lake, July 21. Secretary Schurz,
having been informed that the Mormon
were turnishing arm and ammunition to
the Indians in Idaho, wrote to an acquaint
ance at Ogden to ascertain the truth. An
investigation revealed tho fact that tho
Mormon co-operative stores at Logan, Og

has been sent to Washington.

and with Reno at the time of of tho Custer
massacre, was attacked at Cabin creek by
twelve Indians, who fired several shot
through the mail bags and shot the lock off
of ono bag of mail. The driver was furnish

FINANCIAL DISTRESS IN PERU.
Panama, July 13. Peruvian papers of a
recent date sjwak in a most desponding
tone in relation to financial affairs in Chili,
forgetting that the position in which Peru
is placed at present is far more distressing
than that of her sister republic. Chili pa
pers do not publish such distressing
accounts of the condition of the country for
paper money there is at par with silver
while in Peru the paper is at a discount of
33 percent to the silver dollar with the ex
change at 20d or thcreatmuts.
Panama, July 13. There havo arrived
here from Bogota some officers to reinstate
those of the state who are to be sent to Bar
ranquilla. Rumor, however, has it that
the Btute officers have declined to leave
Panama, in which caso they wtll be dis
banded mm thij battalion m which tly
belong. There is no doubt that groat dis
satisfaction exists at present on tho
isthmus, nnd a feeling of insecurity is gen
erally felt by the native population, who
sec that this change means something more
serious, and which, of course, must end in
revolution. The usual detachment of na
iional troops is also shortly expected on the
isthmus. The state government is trying
to compromise with SenorMinotti, an Italian
merchant of this city, who was recently im
prisoned by one of the judges. So far they

Lord lieaconsfield, in his hour of triumph,
finds himself even lonelier than his prede

far, at least, us family tics are concerned.
For albeit the former was a widower with
but an only child, from his birth afflicted,
and the latter had none, Melbourne had a
devoted sister, who survived him, in Pal
mcrston's devoted wife and widow. Lord
Beaconsfleld lias now but one near relative
of his name a nephew. His
only sister, to whom in his latter
years tho author of the "Curiosities of
Literature" was indebted for all that filial
devotion could do to lighten the burden of
falling powers, died many years ago, and in
these prosperous latter days tho prime min
ister of England has doubtless often turned
with fond regret to the memory of bis wifo
whom he so loved, and delighted to honor,
in seeing her created Viscountess Beacons
field, tlo is a lonely man, and as matters
stand, his earldom will, like his wife's vis
county, become extinct. It is, however,
likely enough that tho queen will oiler t
extend tho title of tho undo to the nephew,
and, although Peel refused all honors for
himself or his family, Lord Beaconsfltdil
may very likely view such an offer in as dif
ferent light to that of his whilom antagon
ist as he did tho repeal of the corn laws.
