The "shrieking sisters," as the Chicago

who are now holding a convention at Chi

they were informed that they were allowed
tnly ten instead of seventy-two seats in
the Republican national convention. The
eeventy-two expected to talk the conven
tion into a plank in the platform lavonng

hardly be sufficient to accomplish their
purpose. However, ten will be enough to
net the convention by the cars, if they arc
permitted to talk as much as they wish.

teat now occupied by Congressman
TTaaJiburne. Mr. Springer it chairman of
' committee on elections, and some
weeks ago he received an anonymo'ua letter,
offering him $3,000 to vote for a report un
seating Woshburne and seating Donnelly.
He immediately made the letter public,
and au investigation into the matter was or
dered. It was the general belief that an
attorney by the name of Finley, who has
charge of Donnelly's case, wrote the letter.
Finley and Donnilly, in the course of the
investigation a day or two ago, undertook
to show that Springer himself wrote the
letter. The distinguished congressman
from Illinois would hardly care to take his
place in history by the side of "Whittaker.
The New York World recalls, in connec
tion with the Whittaker case, the very re
markable story of Major Goodridgc, of
Massachusetts, who robbed himself and
shot himself through the hand on the road
between Exeter and Newburyport, in the
year 1810. It was never explained why
Goodridge inflicted so serious an injury up
on himself. He, however, vigorously press
ed serious charges against several innocent
persons, and.had it not been for the won
derful skill of Daniel Webster, who defend
ed the accused parties, in detecting fraud
and perjury, tbey would, in all probability,
have fared badly. Whittaker, however,
was a buHgler compared to Goodridge.
Had he possessed the courage, coolness and
brains of Goodridgo he would have inflic
ted a blow upon West Toint academy from
which it would not have readily recovered.

0PE5IN0 OF PARLIAMENT.
From our Reguiar Correspondent.
Lo.npon, England, May 23rd, 1660.
Although the queen herself was absent
from the ceremony, queen's weather shone
upon the re-opening of parliament yester
day. A crowd of idlers assembled early
prepared to cheer sucli celebrities as might
be known to them by sight. Like most
crowds their knowledge was not exact, and
their favor was occasionally shown in
doubtful if not wrong directions. Some
times they mistook nonenties for celebri
ties, and suffered famous men to go by un
noticed. Messrs. Chamberlain, Chaplin,
and Stansficld walked to the house unrec
ognized. Sir Stafford Northcofe, Lord
John Manners, Sir Richard Cross, Lord
Norton, Mr. Mark Stewart, Sir William
Dart Dyke, and Mr. Dodson, were not
greeted by the popular voice. On the
other hand, Lord Hartington was vigorous
ly cheered. Mr. Bright received the mend
f popular favor, as also, it is scarcely
necessary to add, did Mr. Gladstone. The
crowd had waited patiently from high noon
till four o'clock to sec the premier pass. At
length the rumor, blown no one exactly
knew, whence, arrived that Mr. Gladstone
weuld walk from Downing street to the
house at a quarter pust four o'clock. Boon
the news spread, no one knew how, and the
crowd visibly increased until a dense mass
of people covered the footway in front of
Westminster hall and the outer sides of the
enclosure. Exactly at twenty-six minutes
past four o'clock a noise of cheering wns
heard in the distance and outside the gates,
where Inspector Downing stood on duty,
and the crowd, with an impulse ot curiosi
ty, surged in that direction. Hats were
waved in the air and voices raised in con
gratulation as Mr. Gladstone, leaning upou
the arm of his son, Mr. Herbert' Gladstone,
made his way across the yard in
the midst of the jubilant populace.
The premier camo hurriedly along,
looking pale but pleased, raising his hat to
right and left. Two great green leaves of
lily of the valley, and a bunch of the white
blossoms of that pluut, were set jauntiy in
the left lnpptl of tho right lion, gentle
man's coat, and as lie reached the pointed
archway which leadB to the members' ei.
tnitx,e, beyond which the crowd might not
intrude, the cIiommi of the people turned
and made abcisanco to hi clients and fol
lowers. By five o'clock iu the afternoon a crowd
of peeresses and strangers had been accom
modated in the galleries, looking ..upon a
house well filled. Lord Renecnsfie'.d in the
old altitude with his anus crossed, occupied
the center of the front ministerial bench,
upported by Lords Cranbrook, the duke of
Richmond and Gordon, the earls of Cado-
gan and Beauclmtnp, and other Tory noble
men. The duke of Cambridge occupied a
seat npon the cross benches. , Now, for the
first time yesterday, the house of lords pro
scntei a really imposing appearance The
galleries were filled with peeresses. From
the western window, the only ono undrnped
from without, the afternoon sun streamed
transversely across the chamber, throwing
a patch of golden light upon the ladies to
the right of the throne, shimmering upon
the gilded garving above the seat of roy
alty and revealing the colors of the tripple
frescoes beneath the tho roof. The strong
effect of light and 6hade added to the
grandeur of a solemn and magnificent in
It is estimated that five hundred mem
bcrs were present at the morning sitting,
and, if that calculation may be relied on,
very few short of the full compliment of
sepresentatives of the people must have
gathered to greet Mr. Gladstone in the
afternoon. The premiers had a splendid
reception. Amid loud and hearty cheers
from both sides of the house he came
quickly along the floor, supported by Sir T.
E. Cole brook aad Lord Kensington, to the
corner of the tabic when Sir Ertkine May

CHICAGO TIMES AND MR. MOR
RISON, lit. Louis Times.
The Chicago Times, whose facts are usu
ally false and utterances always without
conviction, devoted a column of editorial
6pace on the 2d instant to an effort to de
preciate Hon. Wm. R Morrison. A Pa
riah in politics and a mercenary in jour
nalism, the Times would hardly be expect
ed to support a plain, direct, honest man
like Mr. Morrison. His friends would
have reason to grieve if that journal ap
prove him. To depreciate and detract is
the easiest thing in writing, and the reck
less and unscrupulous Chicago newspaper
does this sort of work with considerable
facility. The record of the action of the
counties of Illinois best prepared to judge
of Mr. Morrison's character and capacity
affords a fair measure ot the influence of
the Chicago Times' teaching whtn oppos
ed to the life and services of their repre
sentative. HOW MUCH MONEY IS THERE IN
A correspondent writes anxiously as to
the amount of money in the United States.
We have several times attempted to give
lull information about this, but here it is
"In 1854 Mr. Guthrie, secretary of the
treasury, estimated tne coin in the United
States at 241,000,000; in 1661 Mr. Pollock
superintendent at the United States mint at
1271,000,000 to $JOO,000,000. It is now
estimated by the chamber of commerce
reports of New York that the coin in tne
United States amounts to $4:3,1,000,000.
which is larirely in excess of any report yet
made. Add to said coin the national bank
notes in circulation, o24,000,000; also the
legal tender notes, 1346,600.000; tofal cir
culation, $1,104,000,000. The importa
tions of coin from Europe bae caused the
volume of circulation to be greater and of
better quality than ever had before. We
have unexampled abundance of money and
low rates of interest."
THE RICHEST WOMAN IN AMERICA.
New York Cor. JLilania (Ov) Cous'.itutiou.
The richest woman in America, and in
deed, excepting royalty and Baroness Bur-dett-Coutts,
the richest iu the world, is
Mrs. E. II. Green, the wife of the vice-president
of the Louisville and Nashville road.
She was a Miss Robinson, aod her father
was a whaling master at New Bedford. He
owned a fleet of ships known as the blue
line of whalers, and from
his profession was known as
'Blubber Robinson." He died when
his daughter was a mere girl, and left her
a fortune of about tigut millions. She
lived slenderly and prudently, and gave
the management of her affiirs to Mr. John
J. Cisco. As her tastes were simple and
her wants few, she was able to transfer her
enormous income almost every year to the
body of the fortune itself, and it has now
accumulated to more than $27,000,000.
Her husband, Mr. Green, was a very rich
man when she married him, and
has been successful ince. It is
said by one who should know
that tho income of this coupie is $2,500,
000 a year. Mr. Green . rather large in
stature, quiet, reserved, sagacious, and of
modest habits. He is about 47 years of
age. and she is about 43.
The richest young ladies in New Yc rk
are the Misses Gardner, the daughters of
Commodore Gardner, who was drowned
under a yacht that overturned a few years
ago. He made his fortune in Wall street,
and upon his death wa? able to leave his
daughters four or five millions each. Added
to this they are charming and beautiful
STRENGTH OF THE RUSSIAN ARMY1.
Pall Mfc.l duzftic.
Au interesting history of the develop,
ment of the Russian army during the last
quarter of a century has been lately pub
lished in St. PettnVurg. On the lth of
January, 1653, the Russian army comprised
27,716 officers and 'JC;iH2 men. including
reserve, local one" auxiliary troops, Lctidea
78,144 Cossacks. During the Crimean war
the strength of tl.e armed furces of the em
pire was, of course, included on the 1st of
January, 1851. to fewer than 41,817 officers
and 2,275,434 men. How many
of these Were, however, actually
present with tho colors or were avail,
ble tor service, in Ihe field cannot even be
approximately ascertained. The active
army numbered it io stated, 24.C54 officer
and 1,1 70,1 e4 men; the reserve troops,
7,b7C officers and 572, 15B mtn; the irregu
lar troops, 8.610 offieers and 1 fi8,(l!ll men;
the opoltFCuenie or militia, 6,047 officers
and 1)64,421 men; and the Cost nek troops,
3,441 officers and 150,720 men; but very
large deductions would probably have to
be made to arrive at the actual strength of
these several bodies, in, loou, for Instance,
when according to the returns ot the minis
tcr of war, tho Russian nrmy numbered
858,907 regular troops, it was calculated,
after a carelul examination of tho strength
of the several units of tho army, that
the probable strength ot the regular
troops did not exceed 385,000 men. On the
25th of November, 1870, tho Russian army
comprised 008 generals, 31,414 officers and
680,425 men, while on the same date the
reserves numbered 742,144 men, and tho
Cossack troops 1,0 12 officers and 51,359
men, with 105,940 men more on furlough;
but whether anything like the above men
tioned number of men are serving with the
colors at the present moment is again very
doubtful. It was, in fact, lately shown by
a German military writer that tho revenue
annually devoted to military purposes in
Russia would not even if the army was ad
ministered in the most economical manner,
suffice to maintain such largo forces.
