HOW TiLAINE CAI'TfllEi) Ili;KS9rDE SOL
DI Kit's PENSION OUl MEXICAN TltOC
IlLKS. Washington, July 24. Senator Bum-
side and liis committee to form a plan for
reorganizing the army are in secret session
at the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs.
The object of secret wesiona is, it is said, to
prevent pressure being brought upou them
to change their action as they progress in
their work. I don't believe, a committee
which is too timid to meet criticism while
performing its duties will have courage to
recommend a radical change in anything,
Burnside never would have Wen chairman
of that committee if Blaine, who prepared
the whole job, had not determined that the
army shouhi remain subtuntiully as it is
larger than it slniuld lie and with one offi
cer to five lit gix men. I was in the senate
on the day when the adroit Maine politician
put through the amendment creating the
committee, and I saw how cunningly- he
captured the Rhode Island Senator, who up
to that day, had favored a different laii.
Burnsidtt's head is ns full of vanity as an
egg is of meat, and Blaine drew his amend
ment in such a way thnt no one but Burn
Rides could be chairman of the committee.
In this matter Blaine will really control the
Republican porthm of the committee
and dictate the rcpoit of its Republican
members. It seems to me that a regularly
publihed report of the proceedings of the
committee would be a good thing, and en
able members of Congress as well as the
people at large to determine, what to do
when Congress meets.
There was manifest at the last session of
Congress a disposition to discourage the
presentation of claims for pension by soldiers
of the late war nnd their heirs. The legig.
lation on the subject can hear no other con
struction, nnd the commissioner of pensions,
in a communication of a few days since to tho
secretary of the interior, claims to have orig
inated the legislation and very plainly and
pointedly commends it. Thcro are two
views to take of this. One is that tho Rad
ical party is tired of paying what it prom
ised to the soldiers and their representatives.
The other is that the soldiers and their
representatives are presenting fraudulent
claims to such an extent ns to make the
pension list a mere record of frauds, The
commissioner insinuates that the latter is
In common with fellow sufferers else
where we are rejoicing in the relief brought
with tho retreating mercury. Our losses
have not been severe nnd tliosu thnt oc
curred were among the intemperate, the
very young nnd the chronic invalids.
MEXICAN IIOIIDKH TUOCIILKS.
Whether the report that Gen. .Mackenzie
has crossed the Rio Grande w ith bUO incu
he true or not, it is pretty evident that news
of an exciting character may he expected
from that quarter this summer. American
troops will cross, it' they have not crossed
already, in pursuit of raiders from Mexico.
In spite of inadequate forces tlio govern
ment has determined to act with vigor
and boldness on the Urdcr. Tho Mexi
cans living along tho Rio Grando who ob
tain cheap horses and provisions and com
parativu immunity from such forays by en
couraging Indian marauders tn cross into
Texas, will not welcome tho troops hospit
ably, and the olllccrs and army
from this side of the river who liavo seen
their freighted expeditions into Mexico
made successful, and to somo extent ridicu
lous, by the course followed by the Mexican
local authorities, are not conciliatory guests.
Where visitors and visited aro uncongenial,
nothing but troublo can bo expected. The
Mexican government itself seems to wish to
check the Imrder troubles ami will uot will
ingly rupture its relations with tltu I'uited
States, but tho Indian raiders and tho Rio
Grande Mexicans who thrive on them liavo
as little respect for the authority of Diaz
when exerted in a direction contrary to
their wishes as Sitting Bull and his braveg
have for that of tho United States, and the
Mexican government has been und is unable
tii exercise its authority in this section
There is some danger, however, that Mexico
may resent the actions of our government
based on the knowledge of this fact, and
that through collisions between tho Mexi
cans nnd American troops it may become
involved in complications with the United
Htntes from w hich prido will not permit a
retreat. If any body of Mexicans, either
of the regular forces or otherwise, attempt
to stay the march of our troops in pursuit
of the raiders our government's directions
to Gen. Ord in accordance with the policy
determined upon will make a hostile collis
ion inevitable, so that Mexico may still fed
uneasy, though the Lenlo movement is
broken by the capture of Escobedo.
PROGRESS OF COINAGE AT THE
ADCNDANCE OK STANDARD MONEY HEADY
NEXT MONTH KOUEKiN COINS, TIIEIll VAL
VE AND HOW TO DISPOSE OF THEM.
Washington, July 25. In consequence
of the extreme heat during the first part of
the present month the mint at Philadel
phia was not able to make the usual num.
1st of silvcrdollars, and the supply of silver
bullion at the San Francisco and Carson
City mints having been quite limited, the
silver dollar coinage, for July is not expect
ed to exceed $2,000,000. A fair supply of
silver bullion was purchased yesterday,
however, for delivery at the San Francisco
and Carson , City "mints. Therefore the
silver i lolla-coinage for August will, it is
believed, bo between three and lour
million dollars. The secretary of the treas
ury has completed all arrangements for fur
nishing United States depository banks
w ith standard siver dollars. He has nlso
notified all national banks of this tacf, the
location of tho depository banks and of the
process necessary in order to obtain stand
ard silver dollars for tho accommodation of
their customers. There can now )e no dif
ficulty in the way of farmers and others
obtaining this currency instead of one and
two dollar bills, for the purpose of moving
crops nnd all other legitimate products
unless such obstacle is made by the banks.
In a letter to the director of the U. S.
mint, dated the 12th inst., Freer Her.og,
the celebrated Swiss financier, states that
the tables of Sir Hector Hay, which the
English silver commission insists are cor
rect, are incorrect in some particulars. He
says that the annual production of gold is
placed too low, and that the figures as to
the Gi Titian production of silver are also too
low. The latter Sir Hector places at 2,
000,000, whereas, according to Mr. Her.og,
the production during 1S74 actually reach
ed 30.000,000 francs. Ho adds that the
principal error of the day was in taking the
export of the Australian continent as the
actual production of gold there in 175,
omitting the com which went to the Mcl
iMiurne and Sidney mints. He also omitted
the gold production of Nova Scotia. New
Zealand and British Columbia.
The following circular lias been issued
for the information of the general public;
1 HEAsuitY Department, )
Office ok Dikectoii of the Mint,
Wasuinoton, July 25, ls.78. )
In consequence of the number of inqui
ries received relative to the value of the
new silver dollar aud the terms at which it
is received at the mints, the following in
formation is furnished:
Section 3584, revised statutes of the
United States declares that "no foreign gold
or silver coins shall be a legal tender in the
payment of debts." Tho Mexican dollar,
therefore, has only a valuation as bul
lion which depends upon the price of sil
ver. At the present price of sil
ver bullion it is worth almut Dili,'
cents in gold per piece. Its circulation 'in
tho United States is optional, and at what
ever value may be agreed upon. The
United States trade dollar also is not a
legal tender, nnd therefore has only a
bullion value. The standard silver dollar,
being a legal tender for all debts, public
and private, is received at par at all gov
ernment orlices in payment of dues, dill'er
ing in this respect from tho M'.xican
nnd trade dollar, which aro not received
I ho .Mexican dollars, as well as all
other foreign silver coins and United States
trade dollars, uro purchased at Philadel
pliia ami tlie assay olllce at New York at
the equivalent of the London rate for sil
ver Million on the day of purchase, less
one-halt cent per ounco of fine
silver. All silver coins so pur
chased are melted and assayed nnd tlieanP.
er paid for tho tine silver contained in the
standard silver dollars. All parties desir
ing to sell foreign silver coins or trade dot
lars to tho government on the nbove terms
will send them ut their own expense to the
superintendent of the mint at Philadelphia
or of tho assay olllce at New York. The
impress charges on silver dollars sent in re
turn also to lie paid bv tho seller. All ror.
rcspondenco relative to silver coins so sent to
be addressed to tho superintendent of tho
mint or assay oSJlco to which tliev nm for.
warded. Tho followlm table shows till!
bullion value in cunts und tenths of n eetir
in United States legal tender coin of a
Mexican silver dollar of full legal weight
and fineness at various London "nuotations
for silver bullion, calculated ut tho par of
exchange 480 05-100 to the pound sterling:

Tho trade dollar is worth two-tenths of a
cent more than tho Mcxicuu dollar at the
respective quotations furnished. Tho deduc
tion at tho mint of half a cent per ounco of
tho line silver contained amounts to about
four mills on tho dollar.

Chicago, .July 25. Tho Times' special
from Capron, III., says that a dramatic sui
cidu occurred there Sunday night. Early
last May, Geo. VV. Burleigh, who is an old
resident of Ohio, hnving lived in varioua
parts of that state, came to that town osten
sibly to start a tonsorial establishment.
Burleigh was a man of varied accomplish
ments, fine education nnd versatile conver
sation. While at Capron he was often in
depressed spirits. Last Sunday he pub
lished a card, informing the citizens that
in order to gratify un often expressed
curiosity on tho part of the townsmen to
witness some such tragedy as the hanging
of Sherry and Connolly in Chicago, ho
would on the evening-of the 23d inst., de
liver a lecture in Thornton hall, and at iu
conclusion gratify them by shooting him
self through tho forehead. Tho price of
admission would be one dollar, and tho
amount rcnlizf should bo used iu his
funeral expenses nnd the remainder bo in
vested in the works of Huxley, Tyndall and
Darwin, for the town library. His idea in
ending his life was to secure eternal peace
by annihilation. At tho appointed time tho
hall was crowded and alter delivering an
infidel lecture of wonderful power, in
manner nnd tone which marked him as an
adept, lie suddenly drew a ' derringer,
placed it to ins forehead, and despite tho
attempts to prevent the rash deed tired and
fell into tho arms of two friends, who wero
in the wings of the stage for tho purpose of
hindering the execution of the design.
The largo sized hull literally tore his briun
to pieces. Ho left a request that his body
be forwarded to Cincinnati friends.
