Tuehe is no room to doubt, says the New
York Public, that a large amount of money
has been withdrawn from the market, for
the time, by a powerful combination of
speculators, who are said to have fJ,000,000
ready to employ, first in putting stocks
down and afterwards in buying at low
. A Washington dispatch says: "The
treasury authorities have determined not to
receive silver dollars from the National
bunks, either on account of the five per
cent, redemption fund or of any other in
debtedness from the banks to the govern
ment, except in cases where the banks in
their capacity of National depositaries shall
have received deposits of silver dollars from
officers of the government." The treasurer
may refuse, abitrarily; but as the silver
dollar is a legal-tender, it is difficult to see
how he may do so, lawfully.
Tan New Orleans Times says: "According
to the Chicago Inter-Occan, Col. Harper,
editor of the Okolona States, found that
Chicago was too big for him, or else he was
too small for Chicago. TJio people there
were not so anxious to see and hear him as
he thought thry were. , His lecturing tour
North will probably prove a failure, and he
will return to Okolona a wiser, if not a
quieter man." The lesson is one that will
serve a good purpose. It will show Mr.
Harper that what he mistook for a wild
anxiety to see the lion of the Okolona
States, turns out to be a quiet indifference
for the lion and all his bellicose roariDgs,
The Maritime Register of 12th inst.,thU9
speaks ot the improvement in trade at New
Orleans and other Southern ports: "The an
nual reviews of the commerce of Baltimore,
Charleston, New Orleans and Galveston
for the last season show a decided improve
ment in business. These reports are very
full and they state that the amount of trade
during the coming season will ha larger
than that of latt year. There will be more
demand for vessels at all of these ports. Wo
have on several occasions called attention to
the increasing importance of these places
and we are glad to have our opinions con
firmed by facts. The growing trade of tho
Southern port shows that the prosperity of
trie country if more equally distributed."
Tub correspondent of the New York
Bulletin, writing from Chicago, says: "The
weather continues very fine, and the corn
is ripening very fast. Large areas of land
io,the winter wheat districts of Illinois uro
plowed, and wheat sown. On every side
we see and hear facts that convince us that
the farmers of Illinois will over do the
matter $o lar as winter wheat is concerned.
In Kansas, however, at present the situation
is somewhat different. Our latest advices
are that the continuance of the 'drouth hns
put, a stop 't to plowing, and but
little tyhent, . 60 . far, has been
aown." ' Tllere' is pleuty of tine yet, how
ever. Corn in, Kansas is now sccurn, , Tha

our correspondent, "Wilheini," holds Iho

where the character of tlio criminal and
the atrocity of his crime are such that
milder punishment woujd seem inadequate
insufficient. Tho incarnate doril whose
life is demanded for tho good of society
and the safety of human life the man who
is known to bo thoroughly bad and vicious,
should hang, when proved guilty of mur
der. So, tx, should tho man who kills his
fellow in pursuance of a deliberate, malig
nant purpose who prepares and waits and
watches, tho devil of murder constantly in
his heart. In other words, when a strict,
rigid interpretation of tho law. leaves uo
reasonable doubt of the justice of the death
penalty, it should bo indicted. A malico
prepense, that clearly betrays an aban
doned and a malignant heart, is held by
the law as an essential clement of murder;
and until the existence of that malice is
plainly and incontrovertibly established,
the victim should be spared tho death pen
alty. Nest to the gallows is the, horrr of
the penitentiary for life. To this punish
ment (first taking away the pardoning
power from the Oovernor and reposing it in
the Legislature) we would commit thousands
of men who arc sent to the gallows. In
saying this we give expression to a convic
tion that is neither shaped nor modified by
sympathy or restment.
A THRILLING RACE.
THE MISTAKE OF A STATION' AO EST, WHICU
IMPEUILED MANY LIVES
From the Cincinnati Time.
"Did you read that railroad item jn the
Times, on Monday, headed 'My Murder i' "
asked a railroad man in a circle last uisht.
"You mean a clipping describing how
supposed runaway locomotive was wrecked
by a station agent under orders ot the com
pany's officers, and it was subsequently dis
covered that a madman was on the locomO'
tive, and the cause ot tho runaway losing
his life at the time !'' inquired anotiier per
"Yes, tho same,", was the rejoinder.
"I have heard that story before," remarked
a third party, between sundry pulls ot
"It was quite reciting," said anothcrmil
road man. "I know of un incident that was
far more exciting, however, and it happened
on the Marietta and Cincinnati railroad not
many years ago. It came neur costing a
number of Jives."
"What was that?" was the general in
quiry; and then with one accord the circle
closed up about the man who apparently
had a "yarn to spiu. "
2,"It happened east of Chillicothc. You
all know Bill Gallatrhcr. nas.sen''cr conduc
tor of the M. and C.'f Yes. Well that fellow
has bsen in more accidents and shows' few
er scratches than any man, I ever saw. At
the time I speak of he was conductor of a
freight train on the M. and C. He hail a
lively train ono night, and the operator hail
orders to instruct Gallagher to side track it
at the next station east of Chillicothc The
operator made a mistake, however, uud tho
order Bill received scut him on a station
further. The telegrapher soon found out
that he had made a grave blunder, and ono
which might-cost muuy lives. Upon mak
ing the discovery he became almost insane
from fright, and by his remarkable actions
and incoherent expressions, attracted the
attention of every person near, among
others, Charles Howard, the train dispatch
er. He raved like a crazy man and no ono
could set anything out of him, except that
ho was the cause of some terrible calamity
about to happen on tho Toad. Charlie
Howard watched and listened to the man
attentively for twine minutes, and from his
knowledge of the tr;-.lns and running lime,
he guessed at the truo state of nffairs. The
next station was culled and the startling
information learned that tho freight train
had passed there. Tho west-bound pas
senger train wus also found to be on time,
and a terrible collision on the road seemed
at the time inevitable.
'Charli'i Howaid proved the right man
in tne right place that time. An engine
was hastily brought out and pressed into
use. A red-hot lire was soon causing the
steam to angrily hiss from the vaives. The
inrotuc tvas pulled open, ana the engine
sped away like a frightened ruce-horse.
Never was suelf time made on the rail be
fore. The engine was urged on at a fright
ful rate of speed m the seemingly vain hope
of overhauling Bill Gallagher's freight
train. At last the object being chased
could be seen a long way ahead, and thu
steam whistle was called into use. Galla
gher saw the egino bearing down upon
him, and heard the whistling, which he
failed to understand. Iu some way
ho becamo impressed with tho
idea that another freight 1 tram
was behind and rapidly approaching him.
Relying on the telegraphic orders he had
received, anil desiring to keep uway from
the supposed train behind him, ho hurried
his own train ahead. Thus it happened
that a very ill-matched ruco commenced,
and promised to frustratc the plans of Char
lie Howard. Gallagher's troinwas being
puslrcd to its utmost speed, nnd the time
Consumed in shortening tho diBtunco be
tween it and Howard's engine seemed
painfully long to the persuing parties.
Steaily, but surely.jiowever, Gallagher was
overhauled, but it was not uutil tho single
engine touched the rear end of tho freight
train that tho signal 'down breaks' -was
understood. The train soon camo to a
stop, the situation wa hurriedly explained,
a signal was thrown out, uud In a few mo
ments Bill Gallagher's freight was backing
up with all tho power that two engines
could supply. Scarcely had tho train com
menced to back when tho shrill whistle of
a pai-senger train coining west was heard,
, Hud in a few seconds the curs could bo seen
sleeping nrmind tho curve' beyond at u
fpeed of twcnty.flve mihs nil linur. Tho
gnal thrown out stopped the train, nnd
I ,V'rrU',n dl"rt,' '" prevented.

CAPTAIN EAD3' OBJECT.
Mr. L. U. Rcavis, of St. Louis, on tho eve
of his departure for Europe, was interviewed
by tho N. Y. Graphic. From tho interview
the following extract is taken:
"It is"aid that the Isthmus Canal project
was ouo of tho objects of Captain Eads'
visit to Lurope."
"His visit has no other object. Ho told
mo something of his plans before he sailed
last Saturday, but although I have known
him intimately for years I only saw liim
for a short time and am not familiar with
tho details of his plans. Ho thinks
America should build and control what is
to be the new commercial highway of :he
worfd, and he undoubtedly proposes to
have n hand in the work himself.
"Has ho made a fortune out of the Mis
"io and yes. Ho is a man of magnit-
cent projects, and if ho had hi mind fixed
on an idea lie would spend all tho nienty
in mo uanK ot Lngiand in an cliort to carry
it out. When I last knew something of ins
nffairs he was worth probably $500,000, but
he had been worth that before lie had lost
it. The government would not advance
!iim a dollar until results had been certified
to, and ho used his own capital and that of
ns friends, and perilled every thing before
the first result was reached nnd ho got his
first money from the government. He is a
pleasant, amiable fellow, and will be
amiblc with an opponent m order to win
nm over to his side. Ho is cratty m the
sense in which Greeley said ot Lincoln,
he is the craftiest man iu America.' By
one method or another he always carries his
point, however difficult or distant it may
seem to be. And withal he will be pleas
ant alxmt it. lie has cone after the con
tract for the building of the canal, nnd in
some way he will get it, and you may be
sure he will get it in such a way as will
briug reputation to himself and credit to
And with this statement Mr. Reavis
started for Europe, intent on manufacturing
public opinion iu England favorable to
Americn, and of aiding Captain Eads so
fur as possible in gaining for himself and
America all tho credit of carrying out M.
de Losscp'g project, and, doubtlessly, of
capturing all tho money there is in it.
TlIE INFLUENCE OK climate. The inilu
enco of climate upon a constitution subject
