It is well known here that Danish neutrality it
only ostensible and temporary. The Danish Gov
ernment cannot withstand tbe enthusiasm with
which Admiral Bonllt and squadron have
been redelved at Copenhagen, and the known
sympathies of the people. The secret mission of
Count Cadore and the arrival of the French fleet
coincide so exactly as to leave no doubt of the
coarse of events. Not many weeks—perhaps not
many days—will pass before tbe announcement
of an alliance, offcuctvc and dcfcnclve, between

Ssw Tors, Aug. 7.—At the time of this writing
there are accounts of a great German victory on
the Rhine. If this tnms out to be confirmed, the
gold market will be likely to open weak to-mor
row. A Prussian triumph means ease tn the Ger
man money markets, and the retention of our
bonds in Germany; while a French success is
likely to withdraw German capital tromour bonds,
and send them back to ns in great numbers, no
far there la no indication that American
securities are to any extent yet on their
way home, while, at the same
time, the drain of onr gold to Europe is prodi
gious. It averages 10,000.000 per week; the total
shipments of specie since. January 1 have been
$37,9)7,911. Anything that looks like a pratenc*-
turn of the war will be regarded ben as an indi
cation of the upward movement tn gold. Not
withstanding the reported German victories, those
who profess to know the French people best,
thatthey will not be cast down by the reverses,
but will continue the war to tbe bitter
end. The results are not obtained lu
a day. Since the Introduction of
anna dr pm&fon in modern warfare, battles are
matters of weeks instead of days. In old times,
the fate of empires was decided in a single col
lision. Now, the roe oil depends on a series of en
gagements, as in onr own civil war and the Sa 1-
uwa campaign. No utter destruction of armies is
possible; bonce the weakness In gold which may
be developed to-morrow or this week will not
necessarily prevent a snbseauent very heavy rise.
Thu chances are for a very lively gold market dur
ing tbe coming iwo weeks.

Kcwand Interesting Developments—
strange Story of a Newsboy—Judge
XSedlord to the Grand Jury*
From (Ac .New York Timet, Aug. 0.
There wae£ renewed activity, yesterday, at
Police Headquarters Id tbo investigation of
the Nathan tragedy. The publication in the
Times of the offer by tho family of the mur
dered man of additional rewards, brought out
some new phases of the case, new. however,
only to tho public, for they have been familiar
to tbo detectives from tbo beginning. The
reward of SSOO for tbe appearance of the man
who, on the morning of the murder, picked up
a piece of paper from tbe top frort step of
tho Nathan residence, refers to the most in
teresting and, in ono respect, the most im
portant of those developments.
It appears that a newsboy has long been In
the habit of folding bis papers on wet morn
ings on tbo doorstep of tbo Nathan bouse,
which is always dry on account of a broad pro
jection overhead. Friday morning being wet,
he went there for (hat purpose, as Uouai, and
bad got only to the bottom of the steps, being
yet on the sidewalk, when he noticed that the
hall door was partly open. This was about 5
o’clock in the morning, but the boy, suppos
ing tbe servants were np unusually early
and wore abont to wash the steps and
pavement, went to the stops of the
next honee and folded his papers there.
While he was doing so he noticed a man
in laboring dress, with a dinner-pail in his
hand, suddenly pause as he was passing the
Nathan boose, and then going np the steps
pick up a Urge niece of white paper from
the top stop and walk away. The circum
stances did not at the moment seem impor
tant or singular to tho boy, bat when the mur
der was discovered an hour afterward, it
seemed both singular and important, and he
at oneo sought ont tho police and told bis
story. Search for the unknown laboring man,
this minnte and undistinguisbablo atom in tbe
great mass of humanity was at once instituted,
and a great deal of the time of several of tho
most oxperienceddetectives has beeuoonsnmed
ever since the day of themurder in endeavoring
to trace him out. It has all been entirely
wasted. It is deemed most singular that this
man has never voluntarily come forward since
tbe announcement of the murder with what
ever information ho happened to pick np in
tho dawn of that tragical morning from the
steps of the Nathan mansion. It is supposed
that his non-appearance is due cither to the
fact that what he picked np was a bond or
something of value, which he dceircs to keep,
or tbit he has never yet associated the house
where he found it with tbe one where the mur
der was committed. It is not probable that
in casually picking np a piece of paper, if it
seemed to him of no value, be noticed the
number of the house, or he may have for
gotten the circumstance altogether. The
etory of the newsboy, if believed, and
there is no good reason for doubting it.
settles beyond dispute a most important ques
tion in tbo case. There have Hitherto been
two opinions as to whether the front door was
open or shot on the morning of tbe murder,
but there can be but ono now. We have now
tbo concurring testimony of young Mr. Na
than. of General Clair, and the newsboy, that
the door was open, and against it oxdv that of
Patrolman Man gam, who persists in declaring
that it was shat. The patrolman has a very
strong Interest in sticking to his story, for he
admits that be passed tbe door a little before
6 o'clock, when it must, according to all other
testimony, have been sufficiently ajar not only
to be noticed by tbe newsboy from the spot
wbero the patrolman stood, but by General
Clair from a distant window of the Hotel oppo
site. If the patrolman were to acknowledge a
dereliction of duty so gross as tbe neglect to
notice so obvious and important a fact, it
would subject him to severe punishment, If
not dismissal from his position; and it is not
surprising, therefore, that bo stordilv insists
thawbe looked at the door at o’clock, and
saw that it was closed. On tbo otherhand,
the newsboy told his story before be or any
one knew that tbe point was in dispute
and at all events had no interest in telling
anything bnt the exact truth. The concur
rence of testimony not only establishes tbe
fact that tho front door was open from 5 to C
o'clock, or for st least an entire boor before
tho discovery of the murder, but throws con
siderable donbt upon the assertion of the pat
rolman that ho tried both the basement and
front doors at 4j£ o’clock, and found both
fastened. In this case, also, be was
np a case for himself against the imputation of
carelceeDces in the discharge of dnty, and it
is so improbable that any policeman, un
der ordinary circumstances, would take the
trouble to try both doors of a private resi
dence after daylight in tbs morning, that tbe
t-Utement is received with many grains of al
lowance. In his examination by Superinten
dent Jonrdan on the morning of the murder,
Man gam said that he began, at 6J* o'clock, at
Seventh avenue and Twentv.secood street, go
ing through Twenty-second street to Fourth
avenue, np that street to Twentv-third street,
and through the latter to tbe house of Mr.
Nathan, tho doors of which ho tried at 4>£
o'clock, and as be insisted, also, that be tried
every door as he went, be was claiming that
he bad achieved an impossible feat, Superin
tendent Jonrdan, at least, thought so, for be
told Man gam at the time that the thing coaid
nut be done, bnt the latter not only persisted
that he bad done it on that particular morning,
hut that it was his rim* for going over
that portion of his poet.
Tbe general effect, then, of this last devel
opment has been to remove all doubt on one
point of tho case, hot So increase them on
another. It can no longer be denied that the
front door was not only unfastened, but par
tially open at aa early as 5 o'clock, and the
important fact of whether it was fastened or
cot at an earlier boor is pal in great doubt.
In other respects the new offer made by the
family gives new facts and affords larger
scope fur the exertions of tho detectives
There was an old-fashioned cold watch, which
was in the safe, also taken by the murderer,
which not only gives another' possible cine to
his detection, bnt establishes the important
fact that the safe was rifled, which was before
left in doubt. In one respect the fact is of
little value, as the watch, although an old pos
session in the family, had been noticed so lit
tle of lat c yean that no particular description
of it can be gives, and It may pass without
discovery from hand to hand.
Superintendent Jonrdaa was kept very busy
all of vcslerday in the investigation of the
care. The detectives were constantly taking
persons into his private office, where their
statements were taken down verbatim by Mr.
ilellisb, the stenographer of the Pobce De
partment. In addition to this work there were
several important consultations daring the
day. Mayor Hall, Coroner Rollins, and As
sistant District Attorney Fellows called at dif
ferent times, and baa protracted interviews
with Superintendent Jonmao. Mr. Cohen and
Hon. E. B. Bart also called on behalf of the
Nathan family, to make final arrangements
fur the issuing of the areolar announcing the
rewards offered by the family, as published in
the Times yesterday. Bat there was no tan
gible result from this activity and labor. So
far as the public were informed, no progresa
whatever was made In solving the problem
