votes, to repeal the bankrupt law.

The Liberian Exodus Association
dispatched from Charleston on
Thursday its firstship load of emi
grants, some two hundred in number,
to Liberia. These are of the bet
ter class of colored people, who
carried with them a stock of sup
plies and necessaries. It is proposed
to make these trips every two or
three months until all those desirous
of seeking their fortunes in
their native land can be accommo
One of the features of the occasion
was the departure of a reporter of
the News and Courier to the
promised land. Journalism has
lately achieved its most conspicuous
triumph in the remarkable expedi
tion of Stanley through the heart of
Africa. While not attempting to
rival this feat, the News and Cou
rier, already so noted for its en ter
prise, has determined to secure,
both for the colored people here
and for all others interested, a
trustworthy report of that land
concerning which such conflicting
accounts have been received. Its
messenger has been well chosen.
Mr. A. B. Williams is a Virginian,
quite young, but possessed of talent,
vim, courage and that pecculiar knack
so necessary to constitute a good
newspaper man. He came to
Charleston when the Journal of
Commerce was founded, and was
employed on its staff during the
Hampton canvass. As its Columbia
correspondent during the day3 of
the dual government, his enterp)rie
was unquestioned. Subsequently
he became a valued member on the
staff of the Newos and Courier. He
is a wide-awake fellow, sees every
thing and knows well how to toll
all about it. His letters cannot- fail
to be full of interest. We wish him
Ion voyage and a safe return.
A Shower of Gold,
Gold has coma down to a pre
mium of only one-fourth of one per
cent. ;and a number of banks are
already resuming specie payment
to a limited extent. It is thought
by good financiers that resumption
will soon be a settled fact. Some
curious results are predicted.
Heretofore a large amount of gold,
estimated at $200,000,000, has been
locked up in vaults, to be bought andl(
sold as a commodity. When the
premium vanishos it will be neces
sary to put this money into circu-.
lation in order to utilize it ; and the
result will be an inflation of the
currency to that extent. A gold
inflation will beat irredeemable
greenbacks or interconvertible
bonds or even the silver dollar of
our daddies all hollow. A second
prediction is that this will make
money easier to get and that busi -
ness will revive. Already stocks
and bonds are enhanced in value at
this prospect, and it is believed that
investments of all kinds will look
The experience of the last few
months has made us feel much
bettor. All along e suffermd -nder
the unmistakable yet painful con
viction that we know nothing about
finances, and we hold our breath
with mixed awe and admiration,
when we read profound treatises on
the subject from editors and Con
gressmnen. With them, the manago
ment of a thousind millions or so
was a mere matter of moonshine.
But alas ! the facts have utterly
demolished their figures. Every
one who has elaborated his financial
views has been compelled to write
himself down as an ass. The
inflationists shrieked against re
sumption, affirming that it would
squeezo the life out of the people.
Now we are told that it will secure
an inflation of a couple of hundred
million dollars. On the other hand
gold men swore that the silver bill
would close gold out of the country,
ruin tha sale of bonds, and disgrace
the government. Now we are tol.l
that bonds are in domuand, and that
the silver bill has boon t1h3 very
means of effecting resumption. It
is time for financial authorities to
take back seats. They know no
more than any one else.
THE DEE1CHElR SCANDAL REVIVED.
A Confession by Mrs. Tlton--Prompt
Donial by Mr. Boochor.
Society in New York and Brook
lyn has a.ain been thrown into a
fliuttl by the appearance of the
following lotter :
Mr. Ira B. WVheelcr :
MY D1:An Sin--A few week3 since,
after long months of mental anguish,
I told, as you know, a few friends.
whom I had bitterly deceivod, that
the charge brought by my husband,
of adultery between myself and the
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, was
true, and that the lie I had lived so
well the last four years had become
intolerable to me.
That statement I now solemnly
reaffirm, and leave the truth witl
God, to whom also I commit mnysel f,
my children and all who must
I know full well the explanations
that will be sought by many for
this acknowledgment; a desire to
return to my husband, insanity,
malice, everything save the true and
bnly one-my quickened conscience,
and the sense of what is due to the
cause of truth and justice. During
all the complications of these years
you have been my confidential
friend, and, therefore, I address
this letter to you, authorizing and
requesting you to secure its publi
caition. ELIZABETH LI. TILTON.
Brooklyn, April 13, 1878.
Mr. Wheeler is a lawyer and a
gentleman of good standing, and is
a friend and connection of Mrs.
Tilton. On being interviewed lie
declined to say more than that the
letter was gentline, and thiat '11ton
knewv nothing of it. Mr. Beecher
writes the following denial:
To the Edit or of the Herald :
I confront Mrs. Tilton's confes
Sion with an explicit and absolute
The testimony to her own inno -
cence and mine which, for four
years, she has made to hundreds, in
private and in p)ublic, before the
court, ini writing andl orally, I
declare to be true.
Andc the allegations now made in
con tradiction of her uniform, solemn
and un varying statements, hither to
made, I utterly deny.
I declare her to be innocent of
the great transgression.
HIENRIY WAnD BEEcHERi.
Waverly, N. Y., Mi~onday evening,
1-lre the matter rests at prosent.
Those who believed in Beecher's
guilt are now sure of it ; while his
friends say that Mrs. Tilton is
ipisane, and that she has been
bullied into writing the letter by
her husband. She is said to be in
desti-tuto circumstances ; and the
opinion is general that s'he has be-,
como reconciled to her husband.

--An Era of Good Fooling.
C'olonel lcClure in the Phil/rclphw Ti'L'm.
Tho notable feature of the Senate,
to one who has been familiar with
the body ten years ago, is the many
now faces to the extreme right of
the chair. There are Gordon and
Ransom and Maxoy and Morgan and
Hill and Lamar and Butler and
Withers, all ex-Confedorato chiefs,
now legislating for the government
they rebelled against, and thoy rival
their opponelts on tho oppositu
side of the chamber in conservative
national views. ''ho mngnetic men
of the body evidently are Blaino on
the Republican side, and Gordon on
the Democratic side. Dj.th1 are of
the nervous temperament, genial in
intercourse, keen at repartee and
ahvays ready for the fray. Blaine,
Gordon and L:ntr are sitting in a
group, the great Republican leador
leaning over the desk of the
Georgian warrior on one side and
Lamar bending to both from the
the other side, chatting in a manner
so friendly and jovial that the de
votee of the bloody shirt would chill
in his hero.-worship of .Blaine, could
he see how fraternal the blue and
the gray can be in the amenities of
the Senate. Conkling enters from
the rear of the chair and his finely
chiseled features, graceful bearing
and unconcealoi sense of superiori
ty could not fail to arrest the atten -
tion of the visitor. His golden hair
has lost its lustre as the frosts have
been busy at their wou:i, ,I."d ho
lacks the ruddy freshness he broug. t
into the Sonate, but he is umm,
paired in vigor and imperfous as
only a Conkling can be since the
days of Clay. He beckons toe
youthilful looking Allison, of Iowa,
to a private talk, and the two take a

Dick Oglesby, the rollicking cam
paigner of Iilinois and one of the

fresh and unplowed by age or care.
Ferry steps in from the eastern
door like a dancing-m.tster, stroke.,

Cameron is absent--off to New Yoi k
to prep~are for bis coming niariiage

is in his place and looks fromi the

he is nowv one of the leading party
oracles in directing the Democratic
side in all emergencies. Thurman

TOTaL ABISTIIENOE SHVIN WINE TILL IT
There is a curious story about some native
winaes which are extensively advertised nowa
days, and have only recenatly been put upon
thce market. Dr. Underhill, the well-known
grapc-grower of Ci oton Point, died in 5871.
Some of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or any more to be made.
'The grapes have sometimes been sent to
market, and sometimes left to decay upon
the vines. It is onily now that the othier heirs
hacvc suelcce in arranging for a settlement
of the estate and the sale of the wvines on
hacnd. Ainoong these is a wvine of the vintage
of 1864j, described as a c"Sweet Union Port,''
but suggesting the Imperial Tokay more
than any other European wvino, and being
wholly unlike any other wine of American
growth. Its purity, age and mellowness are
remiarkale, aind both physIcians and wine
L.c2ers have a special interest in it as the
chiest native wine now accessible in any con
siderable rluantity. The whole stock is in the
hands of the wvell-known wholesale grocery
house of the Trhurbers.-N, Y. Tnfoung,
Nov. 19, 1&;'7.
The above speakcs for itself, but we would
add that this is the pure juice of the grape,
neither druged, /iguord nor 'watered; that It
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal or sacramental purposes It is
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
undersigned, who will forward descriptiye
pamphlet, free of charge, on application.
