of vcrv curl&usly hand-worked articles.
S'cnor Itamou.Msrla, nn authority on tills

about them la tho last number of tho

"Tho small jowolry consists of allegori
cal representations of animals of all kinds;
buttcrllics, birds, lizards, toads, llshcs,
finalls, eto. Most of It is in (ho form ot mas
sive gold Idols, with IiisJgnlas and allegor
ics, such'as Sceptres of gold, representing
in their handles crowned eagles and other
birds also wearing crowns; utensils or
gold for domestic use, musical Instru

and in fact sucli a largo "variety ot forms
and sizes that It would bo illlUcult to

,1s said to bo ono hundredth ot n Spanish
pound, or 71 Troy'grahis.)
''My attcitIoii was Bpccially called to a
tgold sceptre, whoso handle represented a
ivt rv llnely Vorkcit groupo and showing a
very artistlo Idea. Upon tho -wrist, so to
.speak, of the staff, rested twu largo apes,
.0110 of which had uiou Its shoulders a
.small monkey; an cngiu very ueucaieiy
modeled clasped between its claws this
monkey and tho two apes enlaced with
tho extremities of their tails tho feet of
tho eagle.
"Another very striking object was a
massive gold Idol to which my attention
1 was called on account of Its strango shape,
ihavlng a quaint crown set over nn Irregu
lar face, two wings, a breast-plate in ro
illcvo, moss) vo legs, nbovothem a cask, and
In each hand a wand. I was not nwaro

Mr. Nctlfct'op, acting Secretary ot the
Treasury, has'denled the application of a
copplo of N,ow Vprk firms for tho conver
sion ot 11,000,000 of gold coin into bars
for tho purpose of exportation. This ac
tion, which was taken with tho approval
of (ho President. Is based, ns Mr, Nettle
ton says, upon tho belief that it is not
good business policy for tho United States
Government to go out of its way to facili
tate tho oxi( of gold from this country.
Tho now factor, whether it proves, perma
nent or otherwise,, conforms in oltect to
tlio policy of European nations. 11 ml,
whouovcr followed, will undoubtedly fur
nish n wholcsomo check to tho often
needless and .speculative exportation of

with tho Secretary of tho Treasury to re
celvo or not gold coin at assay olllccs
am deliver In exchnngo gold bars of

for such exchange equal to tho Govern

lynchlngln both Iho North and Soutli, will
say editorially: "In tho South society
wages war against criminals and against
foreigners. In tbo 'orth society waes
war against foreigners aud not against
criminals. This is a plain htatcmeiit
of the case, and tho comments of
the press upon tlio recent New Orleans
lynching will bear us out. For a half
century tho Northern newspapers havo
been opposing lynch law, declaring that
It Is novel a justifiable remedy. On tho
oilier hand, tho representative newspapers
of the South, while, deprecating the wild
justice of tho mob, have maintained that
in exceptional instances It is right for tlio
pcoiilo to rcstuuo their sovereignty and
apply u ilcsperate remedy to a desperate
evil.
"Just now tho utterances of the press
aro unusually significant. Willi few c

"Tho bitter, unreasonable and growing
