MR. GLADSTONE REBUKED FOR HIS
SPEECH TO THE LIBERALS.

PltKMIEKsIIII' AND BB HCCCEKDKD IIY HAL
IS1HHT UISMAIU K's DfXI.AKATIO.N IX ItE-
gard to Italy's scheme ok annexation.
London, July 22. - Correspondence of
provineiitl journals continues, tilled with a
,'ossip about an early dissolution of Parlia
ment, to which is now added a rumor that
Lord Bciicnn-tield intends to retire on his
laurels and Lord Salisbury to succeed him
in the Premiership. The orediction of a
dissolution of Parliament and retirement of
I-ord Beiuonstield are probably equally
without the least foundation. Gladstom;
seems to wish the ( Jovcrnitir-nt to dissolve
Parliament, and thanks it their duty to do
London. July 22, The Times, comment
ing on the Martinis of II a it in ''ton's resolu
tion in the house of commons, Friday last,
says; The Liberals cannot be blind to the
tact that with the exception of a small but
noisy faction w hich clamored for war and
brought Turkey to the brink of ruin by the
folly of its counsels, the ereat mass of
people an; prepared to rive a sulh'cient, if
not enthusiastic assent to the decrees of the
JScrlin ennirrcss. It rashly encountered
the jrovcrnmcnt mijrht be tempted to take
aitvantaire ot that popular tavor, and by
the'dissolution of Parliament, increase the
strength of the Ministry.
CRITICISMS (IN GLADSTONE.
The Times also stroii'dv criticises Glad
stone for assuming the right to arrange the
Lilieral campaign, which is the business of
party leaders, and Gladstone says he is not
one of these. If, says the Times, be were
bent on completing the ruin of his nartv he
could scarcely attain that purpose better
than by driving them into the contest for
which they are at present unprepared. He-
feriiiig to Gladst 's personal authority in
the country the Times says; "The shaken
confidence of the entire nation is not to be
restored in an instant, or can it bo charmed
back by the most brilliant declamatory ef
forts," A KAVORAI1LK CHANOK EXPECTED.
London, July 22. Th.- Times says active
preparations are apparent for a favorable
change in commercial affairs. Reports from
various centers of iron industry are decid

A MACHINE OF DEATH.
ANOTHER SHOCKING CALAMITY KH0M A
JIOILER EXPLOSION AN ISCOMPENEXT
ENGINEER CAl'SKS THE DEATH OK THREE
MEN AND THE WOUNDING OK OTHERS WHO
Bei.lbvili.k, July 22. Tho bursting of a
boiler of a steam thresher on the farm of
Mr. Wessel, four and a half miles south of
the city at noon to-day, has produced a pro
found sensation here on account of the terri
ble loss of life occassioncd thereby. It is
reported that there were three persons kill
ed outright, two fatally and four severely
wounded. After the explosion a holocaust
was added to the scene, burning up straw,
wheat and the entire threshing outfit. l)rs.
Ferryman and Bremer have gone to the
scene, but up to this time no addittional
particulars have been heard.
It is reported that the engineer, who was
killed, was a stranger, as also were, the
other two who were killed outright. A
crippled brother of Mr. Wessel is also re
ported fatally wounded.
Additional particulars from Wessel 's farm
disclose the killing of the engineer, name
unknown; William Dexter, of Centreville,
anil Kres, a neighbor.
Wounded Joint Lonn or Louny, of St.
Louis, fatally; John and Henry Massel, se
vere, and another whose name 'is unknown.
Some of the bodies were horribly mutil
ated and badly burned. The farm belongs
to lien Wessel, as also the thresher. In
competence and carelessness of the engineer
is supposed to be tho cause.
A HEAVY SPECULATOR.
HOW JOHN fl. TAPPAX, A ROSTON CAPITALIST,
CAME TO OH I EE A IIAI.K MILLION OH MOKE
TAKEN FROM THE CORl'OH.VTION OK W HICH
HE WAS THE TRUSTED TREASURER.
l!osTox,July 22. The announcement this
afternoon of the resignation of John G. Tap
pan as treasurer of the Boston Belting Com
pany, a position he had held since tho or
ganization of the corporation, thirty years
ago, and a statement that he used tlie credit
of the company in the interest of private
speculation, was a surprise in financial cir
cles, where Tappan was regarded as a man
of the most exemplary character
and unimpeachable integrity. The cor
poration had a paid uo capital of s'ltiil.OUIl,
and its reputation under tappan 's manage
ment had become such that its paper was
readily discounted ami even souoht as
itiiiong the safest offered for discount. Its
capital stock was 5,0(111 shares at $1011 each,
and early in the year it sold for 175 per
share, which last auction sale was $125 per
share. Upon the resignation of Tainmn.
E. S. Converse, trensttrerot' the Boston Rub
ber Shoe company was chosen successor
and found the all'airs in such a condition
that he called a ineetinjf of the stockhold

SHERMAN BACKS DOWN ON INTIM
IDATION. The following explains Itself:
Nkw Orleans, July 22, 1878.
Sin: I have the honor to acknowledge
the receipt of your answer to my communi
cation of June hist requesting permission
on behalf of Hon. John Sherman to have
suliKcnaed befi.ru your sub-committee cer
tain witnesses fir the purpose of testifying
on the subject of acts of violence and other
acts producing intimidation of voters in
this statu at the electiou on tho 2d of No-
...''..m... . ..... - . ),.'. ."i'vmtnmiK,imnKC.:.:., . , ; .;,,'ay,..,r..nHWMi.-ttuu
vember, 1870. In your answer you inform
me that Mr. Sherman's request has ken
considered by thu sub-eoininitto), and that
you are directed to inform me that your
sub-cotninittoe are ready to furnish ubpo
nas for all the witnesses named by
Mr. Sherman and others, that he, or hist
counsel, may desire to have called tr
testify with reference to the matter
of intimidation. I deem it proper to statu
that in consequence, of the delay of tlitt
committee at Washington to nass on the re
quest of Mr. Sherman, aud also tho delay
of the sub-committee to passim this appli
cation and the large number of witnessea ti
l e examined, that it becaino necessary for
Mr. Sherman's counsel to adopt a line of
investigation, omittiii'' that of intimidation.
of which Mr. Sherman's principal counsel
at Washington has been advised, so that at
present I do not wish to depart from that
line until I shall have time to communicate,
with his leading consel at Washington,
which I have already done. I "am, sir.
A our obedient servant,
J no. Ray, Attorney.

A GOSSIPY LETTER AllOUT PEOPLE AND
Washington, July 20. One of the de
serving Deinix:rats whom a part of his con
stitumi'cy wish to replace by a new and in
experienced man in the house of represen
tatives, i.s Hon. Eppa Hunton of Virginia.
His district borders on the District of Col
umbia, aud the opposition to Mr. Hunton
originated with a small class of people here.
The mass of our people know and respect
Mr. H. and hope for his return. But mere
ly personal questions should have little
weight in such a case. Mr. H. is a sound
Democrat, able, honest and industrious,
and the party should not be deprived in
the next house of the weight which these:
qualities, added to experience in legislation,
give him. Iu truth, the tendency to changes
representatives is an evil one, and should
be countenanced only when the proposed
change will certainly place in congress a
more able and more honest man.
Following up his recent spiteful kicks at
Senators Blaine and Conkling, Mr. Hayes
has commenced warfare upon Gen. Butler
by suspending Postmaster Parker, at New
Orleans. Parker is Butler's brother-in-law.
No doubt any connection with Butler, even
by marriage, ought to be held to disqualify
a man from holding public office if not
rendering him liable to severe punishment,
but unfortunately for Mr. Hayes ho did not
act at a time when the suspension of Parker
could be attributed to anything but spite.
Now let us see how Butler takes this chal
lenge. Let us see if he lias any bricks left
in his hat. It is fair to say that no charges
had been made against Parker in connec
tion with the discharge of his duties.
An examination of the evidence in the
Fit. John Porter case that put in by thu
officer and the government's evidence as
far as reported seems to show that tho
general was convicted and punished with
out a full understanding by tho court
martial of the facts in the case. It is be
lieved here that the officers now making an
inquiry into the case will recommend ac
tion favorable to tho general. If a case
of this kind, where the accused had posi
tion, friends aud an unsurpassed record
for courage and skill as nn of
ficer, was decided by thu original court af
ter only a partial examination of its merits,
how great is the probability that iu the
thousand of cases of poor, ignorant, friend
less soldiers, the like course was pursued I
Let us have a permanent board, composed
of citizens of standing, whose duty it shall
be to inquire into the findings of every
court martial held during the, war, if the
convicted party or Wis heirs shall so desire.
Let that board be directed, in case it shall
appear that men were convicted against the
evidence, or merely of technical violations
of law or regulations, to recommend to
congress such relief as is now possible.
The next session of congress should not go
by without the passage of an act creating
suclt a hoard as is here indicated.
