Since the semi-official announcement
from here that Secretary Sherman does not
intend to deliver more than one financial
speech in his abience, and that in Portland,
a strong effort has been made to make him
change his programme, and especially m
favor of his making a speech ia Boston,
where his financial policy has always had a
very strong Eupport. His presence is also
desired at Saratoga on the Oth of August
when the Bankers' Association of America
will hold their annaul convention, and have
invited the business men to meet them In
conference. Secretary Sherman would un
doubtedly like to meet his friends and sup
porters on that occasion, but it wes not a
part of his original programme. He may
change his plans, however, especially since
that conference may develope many inter
esting fact end theories touching financial
management that may be useful in the fu
ture administration of the Treasury. The
object financiers of this country, and Eu
rope are expected to be in Saratoga on that
The rapidity with which tho claimants
under the Arrears of Pension Act havo been
paid is imprecedented in that kind of work
in this country, and the Republicans are
claiming great credit tor ;t. On tho other
hand the Democrats says that the Republi
cans were forced to do the work rapidly,
and deserve no credit, but on the contrary
are doing as they do for poetical effect dur
ing the political campaigns. The amount
of money paid out on this bill since July
1st is $4,840,000. At the rate of allowances
so far the total appropriates of the pension
act $25,000,000 will not hold out two-fifths
of this amount has already been assigned.
By tho resignation ot Judge S. J. W.
Taber, of Iowa, as fourth auditor of tho
treasury is a loss to the government. He
is a faithful and rcliablo officee. He has
held that oflice for sixteen years and it will
be difficult to fill his place, although nu
merous patriots have been waitiug for his
old shoes, it having been known for a long
time that his health would not warrant his
retaining his office.
A considerable agitation has been caused
by the condition of the river flats in tho
river fronting this city. Tlie whole city
sewerage is lodged there in the neighbor
hood of the Long Bridge, aud at low water
and in the heat, it composes a festering
mass of cholera seed. It is gnid that on
his account tho president has decided to
leave Washington during a part of August
and September. But I am inclined to think
this is sensational, caused by the prevalent
fear of yellow fever and other diseases usual
at this time of year. The president would
bo likely to take a vacation m any event.
It is a fact, however, that congress ought
to take measures to protect the capital lrom
what might prove to bo a very serious de
terment to It. It would not be a very ex
pensive job to clean out tho river channel
at that point, or to wall up and fill ia a
part of tho low overflowed land so that tho
sewerage of the" city should not lodge
Tho proposed National fair to bo located
