Thursday Kornliff* July 13, 1872.
Senator Hendrick will deliver his opening
Speech of the campaign at Fort Wayne on
the S7th Inst.
The Granti«s have inaugurated their
campaign in Korfch Carolina by mobbing
colored supporters of tho Greeley ticket.
Hon. Rolert M. Knapp, of Jersey Connty,
was, yesterday, nominated for Congress by
ihe Democrats of the Twelfth District.
A North Carolina revenue officer makes
ihe assertion that this is a bad season for
the revenue business. Hear him: ** We
revenue officers are doing no revenue busi
ness now, and we haven’t done anything
outside of politics for six months. We are
working like beavers.”
The Jesuits and Capuchin friars of Cen
tral America are being subjected to rough
treatment. The Salvadorian Government
is expelling the former, and the convents of
the latter in Guatemala have been cleared
of their occupants and tho property confis
cated to the Government.

The Greeley and Brown ratification meet
ing in Eookford, last night, was in every re
spect a most gratifying success. The
speeches, by Leonard Swett, Esq., and Hon.
William Bross, of Chicago, wore well re
ceived, and at the close rousing cheers were
given for the speakers and the Liberal Re
publican ticket.
Senator Sumner, in Ms letter to Mr.
Reavis, of St. Louis, after speaking in high
terms of Mr. Greeley, says: The Republi
can party must be saved, and what I can do
shall be done for it.” Which, being inter
preted, means that Mr. Sumner will do his
best to secure the election of Greeley and
Brown. •
The Treasury regulation concerning ex
emption from duty of imported materiala to
be need in the oonetrnction and repair of
American vessels, has been so modified as to
require the payment of duty on hemp, cord
age, iron bars, copper, and composi
tion sheathing on their entry, the duty paid
to he refunded when it shall he shown that
the materials have been used for the purpose
specified. .
The New York Central Railroad Company,
having, by various pretences, succeeded in
delaying for a long time tbe payment of the
tax on its scrip dividends, amounting to
nearly half a million dollars, now desires
the Treasury Department to bring suit for
the recovery of the money instead of col
lecting it by summary process. The Com
pany’s agents have, however, been informed
that the ar^men * 18 business
in that way; but if they will e P° sit SHnited.
States bonds to the amount of the Hit they
may bring suit against the Collector at Al
bany. To this proposition the agents have
not made reply.
The Washington authorities have received
the horrible details of the massacre of mem
bers of the Lee family near Fort Griffin,
Texas. Three persons, the father, mother,
and little girl 5 years of age, were killed by
arrows, scalped, and the bodies left with
the arrows sticking in them. Not satisfied
with the brutality exhibited in those cold
blooded nnpdere, the savages mutilated the
body of Mrs. Lee by cutting off the ears.
Two girls and n boy were carried into cap
tivity, and their fate will be even more
pitiable than.that of the murdered victims.
The perpetrators of this diabolical outrage
escaped, and are now congratulating them
selves that the peace policy is still observed
by the Government, and that the troops
started in pursuit maybe detained to await
the action of some Commission ordered from
Washington to investigate the affair.
Efforts to conciliate Forney have not been
attended with satisfactory results. Even
the President's influence fails to; move the
Colonel to look kindly on the Harrisburg
ticket, as witness Mr. Forney's latest edito
rial: “We confess that we ourselves were
totally unprepared for the indictment which
has been brought and substantival against
Hartranffe. Our words of counsel against
the corrupt Cameron ring were scouted.
The soiled character of the objectionable
candidates were sought to be cleansed, and
harmony in the party ranks restored
by the concerted series of coarse
personal attacks on the editor of this paper.
When these tactics proved unavailing, they
endeavored to secure our acquiescence by
milder means. The fable of the old man
and the boy in the spelling-books has been
reversed ; but neither slander, nor vitupera
tion, nor entreaties from the friends of Gen
eral Grant, nor proffers nor threats of any
kind, can induce ns to stultify ourselves and
violate the compact between the Press and
and its readers, by which we are bound net
to advocate the election of men whose unfit
ness is plainly established."
Secretary Bontwell, in Ms speech afc
Greensboro, N. C., protests against the ad
vice of Mr Greeley, to “clasp hands across
the bloody chasm,” and contends that the
time has not yet arrived when the people of
the South may be entrusted with the admin
istration of their State Governments. How
much longer probation it is necessary to im
pose upon onr fellow-citizens in the former
rebellions States is not stated by the Secre
tary; but it may be inferred, by casual re
marks at intervals throughout his speech,
that his remedy for the evils of government
now existing at the South is to be found
only in the continuance of an Administra
tion which has signalized its reign by a pol
icy founded in enmity and ill-will toward
the Southern people, and calculated to sub
serve the political ambition of an unstates
manlike ruler and his horde of unprincipled
followers. Reconciliation is no part of
Mr. Bontwell’s political creed. He pins
to his banner the watchword of his master—
Subjugation. On the subject of Grant’s
financial policy, Mr. Bontwell speaks from
the book, and is not likely to belittle or
criticise adversely the work of his own
hands. He holds up to view the brightest
spot in the bright side of his financial ex
hibit, and leaves to the friends of Reform
and Purification the task of showing up the
errors and inconsistencies of his adminis
tration. The Secretary informed his hearers
that all the revenue frauds were committed
by persons appointed during Mr. Johnson’s
term of office, and that if Mr. Greeley were
elected these frauds would be repeated by
officers appointed by an Executive who
would not be in sympathy with the Senate.
Hr. Bontwell combats Mr. Greeley’s theory
regarding the retention of largo sums of
gold in the National Treasury, and asserts
that if this policy should he carried out it
would end in disasters to the country such
as were witnessed in 1557.

Washwcton, p. c„ July If.—The latest
means of utilizing Government officers of
talent has just come to light. The practice
of sending Cabinet officers. Heads of Depart
ments, Chiefs of Bureaus, and other officers
of the Government into doubtful States, in
in order to OSTTy the ©lection
in accordance with the President's desire, is
■well known. It is equally well known that
clerks of Departments by the dozen have
been detailed to do the work of the Grant
party in making up the record of politicians,
in franking and addressing documents, and
other campaign services, thus taking money
direct from the Treasury and ap-
it to party uses. Bat
it nap jnat come to be knowu that, not only
ip the common labor of politicians performed
by the Government officially, but that coun
try newspapers of the Grant school are fur
nished editors for the Government Depart
ments, and their salaries paid by the Gov
ernment. It has been the practice for some
time, as it is now learned, to obtain well
written articles from the clerks and officers
of the Departments on Political Affairs
favorable to Grant's renomination and elec
tion, have them printed in slip, and sent to
various country newspapers for publication.
This was continued for some time, through
the approval of the officers of one of the
Radical Committees, it being understood
that those who would fnmiah the moat
and best articles wonld stand the highest in
the good graces of the Congressional Com
mittee. Recently, however, the head of one
of the most important bureaus in any of
the departments went to three of the rooms
of his office, making inquiry of the heads of
the various Divisions for the names of those
who could furnish editorial articles for the
Grant newspapers in the country. The
names of several of the ablest clerks were
furnished, and, on apDlication, it was
found that some of them refused to write
Grant articles, and boldly announced them
sevesfor Greeley. Others seemed indiffer
ent as to the service required of them, and
will, no doubt, derive as much profit from
writing paper arguments in favor of Grantas
in turning over mnsty ledgers. Iu
the bureau referred to. the Greeley men are
20 per cent of the whole number, and it is
asserted by careful men that this is a very
low estimate of the Government offices
generally. Some go so far as to say
that a majority of the six or eight
thousand clerks employed in ‘Washington
are secretly for Greeley, as well as several
heads of Bureaus.
Supervisor Perry, of North Carolina, is
in the city, and says the Grant ticket
will carry by 10,000 majority. Perry
is a ranting carpet-bagger from Maine,
who makes no concealment, and
he, to-day, boldly asserted, “We, the officers
of internal revenue, are doing no revenue
business now, and w© haven’t done any
thing outside of politics for months past.
We are working like beavers.” Ho said ho
had been all over the State, and that he is
sure of the majority stated.
A report in in circulation, to-night, that a
controversy has arisen between Senator
Poote and Judge Merriam, the Democratic
candidate for Governor of North Carolina,
of such a fierce character as to be no longer
within the scope of peaceful settlement.
It is said both gentlemen are folly
armed, and that a collision is
expected at their first meeting. Friends
have interceded, and it is now stated that
the efforts of their friends are confined to an
attempt to keep each out of the sight of the
other. A duel is freely talked of.
A letter, to-day, received at the Greeley
and Brown headquarters, from N. H. Hemup,
of Minneapolis, Minnesota, enclosed a print
ed listof about three hundred names obtained
in that city in a few hours, for the purpose
of forming a Greeley Club. Mr. Hemnp
says: “lam confident one-half of the Re
publicans and all the Democrats are with
us. But two Germans still cast their lot
with Grant.”
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
New Yoeic, July 17.— Mr. Greeley is off on
a quiet run to Chappaqua, having deter
mined to suspend his SaturdLay visits, tired
of callers, who were threatening to over
whelm him. It is understood, also, that his
accessibility, while in this city, will he
lessened. The pursuit of him by photo
graphers and other interested callers has
amounted to a nuisance.
For the first time since his serious attack,
Governor Brown visited the Liberal head
quarters at the Glenham Hotel this morning.
He was driven around in a carriage from his
temporary residence, with Dr. Steel, and
conversed freely with the city politicians
who he found there.
At head-quarters, accounts continue to
pour iu from all parts of the country of
the satisfactory and encouraging progress of
the campaign. General F. Cary, of Cincin
nati ; ex-Senator Doolittle, of Wisconsin:
Governor Gilbert C. Walker, of Virginia;
Senator Tipton, of Nebraska; Hon. W. A.
Sanders, of Baltimore, Md.; one of the Pres
idential Electors on Grant's ticket who with
drew and joined the Greeley ranks ; ex-Sen
ator Miller, of Georgia; Colonel Joseph J.
Davis, Judge Fowler, Colonel Master, aud
Senator Carl Schnrz, of Missouri, have taken
the stump. Those who are in North Caro
lina send in cheering intelligence from that
State. General Kilpatrick starts for Maine
to-day, to stump that State.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
Fort Wayne. Ind., July 17.—sir. Hend
ricks’ time for opening the campaign in this
section has been changed from the 29fch, as
telegraphed last night, to Saturday evening,
the 27th. inst., when he will address a mass
meeting in this city.
Cleveland, Ohio, July 17.—The Damo
crats and Liberal Republicans had a grand
ratification meeting in the Park this even
ing. Thirty-two guns were fired, fireworks
disnlayed, and the speakers' stand was most
bf anti folly and brilliantly illuminated.
Hon. H. B. Payne, who was Chairman of the
Ohio delegation at Baltimore, and in 1877
Democratic candidate for Governor, made
an eloquent and able sneeoh in favor
Greeley and Brown. Hon. R. P. Spaulding.
Judge R. T. Paine, Dr. Cyriax, Liberal Re-
publicans, also made speeches, and were
warmly applauded. General Aquilla Wiley,
Democratic candidate for Secretary of State,
aleo spoke, and was rapturously applauded.
Judge J. F. Kenney, of Ashland, also made a
happy ellort. The meeting was a very large
one, and the utmost enthusiasm prevailed
Raleigh, N. C., July 17.—Mr. Boutwell, in
his speech at Greensboro, N. C., protested
against the advice to clasp hands across the
bloody chasm. The chasm must be iiUed
no. produced by injustice, let it be cement
ed with justice. It cannot be filled, by the
denial of the protection of native-born citi
zens of the United States in North Carolina,
South Carolina, and Texas. Ho counselled
his hearers to he not seduced by the idea
that the Democrats are supporting a Repub
lican for the Presidency, and said if their
candidate could oiler, what he cannot offer,
a consistent life in the past as a pledge of
his policy in the future, even this would be
without value in the presence of the
fact that nearly all his sup
porters are from the Democratic party.
•In the nature of things, the bloody chasm
cannot he filled until a fixed majority of the
south accepts the doctrine, not only that
men are equal before the law, hut that all
men by right are equal before the law. If
bitterness once existed, it has passed away.
One act of justice only remains to be done.
The country waits for the evidence that you
heartily and cheerfully accord the full rights
of citizens under the Constitution of the
United States to all within your borders.
Give this evidence and the bloody chasm is
closed. •
Mr. Boutwell presented at length the finan
cial policy of Gen. Grant’s Administration,
and claimed tha* none more than the Presi
dent will strive Ij make the nation what it
onght to be,—a General Government strong
enough to maintain its own integrity against
all enemies, foreign or domestic; strong
enough to protect the rights of its citizens,
at home and abroad. The States are power
ful,complete, sovereign over all local affairs;
members of a Union indissoluble, and so at
tractive that citizens shall hereafter con
sider whether his duty to his State or his
country is supreme.
Mr. Boutwell said the financial policy of
Grant’s Administration was: 1, to secure
the faithful collection of the public rev
enues; 2, reduction of the public expendi
ture ; 3. re-establish the public credit and
reduce the interest account; 4, reduce taxa
tion, and finally prepare the way for the re
sumption of specie payment at the earliest
moment consistent with the prosperity of
the country. He attributed much of the
fraud in the revenue to the laxity of John
son’s Administration—his indisposition to en
force thelaws. In consequence of the conflict
between the Democratic President and Re
publican Senate, dishonest men were
most successful in obtaining
office, as they only could
resort to snob means as would make them
selves favorable to both. “ Now,’ 7 continued
Boutwell, “if you contemplate electing
Greeley to the Presidency, you must con
template it in view of the fact that the
Senate, whatever may be the present opinion
of the country, will he Republican for the
next two years, and with almost equal cer
tainty, for the next four years. You must
contemplate, therefor?, - return Of th? state
of things which existed during Johnson’s
Administration. Yon will secure the reten
tion of dishonest men in office, and the ap
pointment of dishonest men to office by pro
cesses which do not admit of control.
The Administration of General Grant has
given the country the benefit of
a common purpose in all the departments of
the Government, Thatcommon purpose was
the collection of revenue, and this result
has been secured. Mr. Boutwell continued ;
“Itis ascertained by careful comparison
4 “tes of taxation dnring
Johnson's Aau2'
12^2• *- eil co2 tinned and extendeu
wer tun iirscinree years of Grant's, the re
ceipts into the Treasury would have been
greater than they were by §253,800,000. So
it appears that with the samo facilities for
revenue that were enjojed by Johnson’s Ad
ministration, the total payments on the
public debt during the first three years of
Grant 7 s would have amounted to ahoaJ7 six
hundred millions, and that the payments
toward the public debt on the 30th June;
1873. wonid have reached the enormous sum
of $653,000,000. This shows at once the re
duction of taxes that has been effected by
Grant’s Administration, and the immense
losses by fraud and corruption under John
son is due largely to the division of senti
ment and purpose between the Senate and
Mr. Boutwell expressed his belief in the
practicability of continuing the redemption
of tiia outstanding 0 per-cent bonds, and the
the issue of “5, 77 “41, 77 and “4 77 percents;
and said it must he accepted as a truth, for
this country, in its present condition,
that the resumption of specie
payments will not be due directly to any
measure of Legislation, nor can it be forci
bly maintained by any act of the Govern
ment. It mnst be the natural result o£ the
existing condition of things which would
enable the Government to resume specie
payments without effecting violently or pre
judicially the great interests of the country.
The further equalization of the value of
coin and currency will depend on the in
crease of the business of the country, and
the amount of onr exports and valno of the
foreign trade of the United States carried on
in American vessels. There is hut one meas
ure of Legislation except such as foster the
business interests of the country that can
facilitate or hasten the resumption of specie
payments, and that is the re
duction by force of law of
the volume of paper money now in circula
tion. This policy the country has not been
prepared- to accept. Nor am I prepared to
advocate the adoption of a measure which,
unless very gradual in its operation, would
produce'great injury to the business inter
ests of the country, impair the revenues, and
cost more than the value of the result pro
duced. The growth of the country under a
‘wise administration of its officers will soon
*p£ble, the. Government to resume specie
payments without violence or injury to any.
*Eor three years Mr. Greeley, through the
columns;of the Tribune, has advised the
Secretary of tbwTreaanry to sell the gold in
the Treasury..and apply the proceeds to the
paymenfuftne public debt, thus saving in
terest, and'then to resume specie payments;
or. rather, these two bits of advice have
been frequently and interohangably pre
sented at any time, stating which, in his
judgment, is entitled to precedence’ in the
order of events. Bat it can very well be un
derstood that the sale of gold in the Treas
ury, whether for the payment of the public
debtor otherwise, would put it out of! the
power .of the Government to resume
specie payments. The sale of gold
in tbo Treasury, forcing down prices un
naturally, would stimulate imports from
other countries; increase thebalanceof trade
against ns, create an unnatural and excessive
demand for coin, and ultimately advance
the price of gold for the benefit of speculat
ors and gamblers, hat to the great injury of
the country. I do not hesitate to deolar e
that this policy, which is the only policy in
any departmentjof the Government to which
Mr. Greeley has adhered for even three
years, would end in disasters such as the
country has not witnessed since 1837; and if
Mr. Greeley is pledged to anything it is to
the inauguration of this policy. It, unhap
pily, he should be placed at the head of
affairs, the way to resume, is., not to resume
arbitrarily and without* regard to the facts,
but to place and keep the country in tfiat
line and condition of <*fro*hetityv which shall
enable it to meet all its obligations, and it is
for this reason that the Administration has
believed it to be an amount of
gold, which ah&hKK when the
appropriate moment arrived, to enable the
Treasury to resume payment iff our National
liabilities in specie- withont-;£dtng into the
market to borrow, and without making any
.special effort for.-an ..undertaking which
would certainly result disastrously if the
Government were not strong enough to
move free of all dependence of external aid.

Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune,
Rockford, 111., July XT. —'The Greeley and
Brown ratification meeting held here to
night, both in point of numbers and enthu
siasm, was a most gratifying success to its
projectors, and, as such, was in marked con
trast to the dead failure of the Ring Repub
licans to awaken the zeal or call out the
numbers of their disheartened adherents last
Saturday evening. The crowd gathered in
the Court House Square, at 8 p. m., was vari
ously estimated at from 1,000 to 1,500, the
truth probably lying between these two
numbers; in fact, more than three times as
many as were present at the Hurlbut liasoo.
Another marked feature of the occasion was
tho presence of large numbers of ladies, for
whom seats had been provided. At S o’clock
the meeting was called to order, and Leonard
Swett, of Chicago, being introduced, deliv
ered an argumentative speech, continuing
for two hours, in all respects worthy of his
great reputation as a forensic and political
orator. Premising with the fact that he was
addressing an audience in what had hereto
fore been the Ebanner Republican County of
the State, he asked for a candid hearing of
the facts he should present. In an
earnest, sincere, and impassioned
strain, he narrated the long list of
high-handed.usurpations of power, disre
gard of pledges sacredly made, andnneon-'
stitutional methods in the administration
of public affairs which had driven, and
were daily driving, from tho ranfcs or rue
Republican party men who had been its,
founders and firmest supporters, and had
induced them to unite with honest men of
whatever party in removing from power
the ring of incompetent men who had not
only brought the party name into disgrace,
but had imperilled the very institutions
of the Government. In scathing terms he
held up to the execration of honest men the
fearful ruin wrought upon tho devastated
and impoverished States of the South by the
vandal horde of adventurers, who, under the
name of carpet-baggers, have earned tho
right to go upon the most infamous page of
history. He urged that the Republican
party, in the beginning, and to the conclu
sion of the war, in answer to the
charge made on the part; of the South that
the war was prosecuted in a spirit of hostil
ity to the white men of the South, had per
sistently, in the utterances of its platforms,
the speeches of its leading men, and the uni
versal sentiment of its constituency, insist
ed that the sole object of the war was the
restoration of the peace and territorial
integrity of the Union, and that, these
objects being accomplished, the citizens of
all the States should he permitted to resume
their wonted occupations undisturbed, so
long as they obeyed the laws of the laud,
and that the several States should he per
mitted to resume for themselves the func
tions of government not inconsistent with
the prescription of the National Constitu
tion. "With the triumph of the Union
armies the occasion arose for
the fulfillment of these pledges.
The question Mr, Swett put
was this, were the robbery and oppressions
of tho onrpot-baggera snob, a compliance
with that pledge so sacredly mad© that the
party who sustained those unscrupulous
measures could in conscience ask the people
to entrust it with a farther lease of power,
Mr. Swett hold up to view the record of Mr.
Greeley, comparing it with that of
Grant, insistiug that the edu
cation of the first had fitted
him for distinction in the art
and avocations of peace, while that of th*
other eminently marked him as , rx
discharge tUoßtem duties
duties only.. tja .? ftl his comuliments to
those nog A x?? u •*cans who expressed such
saintly horcq at the idea of Democrats sup
porting Greeley, and spoke in glowing terms
of tho self-abnegation which animated the
representatives of that party in the Balti
more Convention,
Mr. Swett was followed by Governor
Brosb, for half an hoar, in an easy and
familiar J*roin, discussed the antecedents
of Mr. Greeley, £ well mg with much fervor
upon those kindly traU , *» sterling good sense
and knowledge of public nisn, which point
edly mark the fitness of the Sage of the
Tribune for the office of President.
At half-past 10 o’clock the meeting broke
up with three rousing cheers and a tiger for
Greeley and Brown, and the same for the
speakers, who bad held the large audience
in tho open air, and most of them standing.
No such gathering of people has been held
in this connty at a political meeting for
twelve years.
Special Despatch to Tho Chicago Tribune.
New York, July 17.— According to the
judgment ol the Administration consulta
tion in Grant’s cottage at Long Branch, last
Saturday, the first important thing to ac
complish was to conciliate Forney. For a
week or more Forney has been in a state of
siege, one distinguished Grant man after
another striving to remove his opposi
tion to the Repnhlioan State ticket
in Pennsylvania. Forney’s paper to-day,
however, shows no symptoms of surrender.
It says, editorially; “We confess that we
ourselves were totally unprepared for the
indictment which has been brought and sub
stantiated against Hartranft. Oar words of
counsel against the corrupt Cameron ring
were scouted. The soiled characters of the
objectionable candidates were sought to be
cleansed, and harmony in the party ranks
restored, by a concerted series of
coarse personal attacks on the editor
of this paper. When these tactics
proved unavailing, they endeavored

The fable of the old man and the boy in

neither slander nor.'vinification, nor entrea
ties from the friends of General Grant, nor

Dear 8m: I think chat, on reflection, von
-will not think it advisable tor me to write a pub
lic letter on the matter to which you oall atten
tion, Mr. Greeley and myself have been fellow
laborers in many things. We were born
in the same year. I honor him very
much. Between him and another person who
bhall bo nameless. I am for him earnestly. I
shall be here for ten days longer. The Republi
can party must bo saved; and what I can do
fcball be done for it. Very truly youxa,
Charles Sqsineb.
Richmond, Va„ July 17.—Ex-Governor
Henry A. Wise, in a letter declining an in
vitation to address a Grant and Wilson rati
fication meeting at Alexandria, eaya: “It
is entirely unfitting for me to act with any
political party at the present time and in
the present attitude of affairs. I can
not and will not act or vote
with the so-called Liberal Republicans.
They are too liberal. They are so loose as to
have no principles, and to adopt the worst
as well as the best to suit the birds of every
feather met together in both Cincinnati and
Baltimore. They have in strange confusion
mingled white spirits and gray, so that the
party is the worst of mongrels and all
things to all men. To yon I have a
patriotic word to say: Excel the Liberal
Republicans. Be just and true Republicans
to your selves and to all men. Tho time has
come for General Grant to/iet ns have
peace.” I

unique case is reported to-day: A mau and
woman, calling themselves Mr. and Mrs,
James, engaged hoard, about a week ago,
with Mrs. Annette Hardy, 501 Broome street.
This morning two unknown men called and
asked to see Mr, and Mrs. James, and were
shown into the parlor, where they were soon
after joined by the above parties, who ap
peared delighted to see them, and imme
diately sent ont for some liqnor. Upon re
ceiving the liquor, the party asked Mrs. Har
dy to join them, which she did. She
was not long in the parlor when she
was bound by the visitors, and, npon her
crying ont, they gagged her. The servant,
Mary Armstrong, hearing the cry, came to
see what was the matter, and was treated in
a like manner. The thieves then collected
many articles, with which they escaped,
Mr. and Mrs. James going with them. The
total value of the property stolen is stated

the broad, navigable water courses in this
city were, a few years ago, converted into

On Monday, July 1, writes a London cor
respondent of the Manchester papers, the
covers which concealed the throve and

slightly increased. Actual business in
prime sterling to-day was on ' tbe
basis of 109 3-4 for sixty days, and
110 3-S for sight. In connection with foreign
exchange and specie shipments some im
portant changes have recently taken place
in freight and insurance charges. Formerly
the steamers charged 1-4 per cent for carry
ing specie to Liverpool, and there was in ad
dition a charge of 1-2 per cent land
carriage from Liverpool to London,
while tbe insurance was 1-8 per cent. Now
most gi tbe German steamship linos delivers
specie from New York to tbe Bank of Eng
land for 1-4 per cent, jost one-half the old
charge, and the insurance companies have
reduced their rate to 3-32 per cent.
The monetary situation is without change.
The supply of idle capital seeking temporary
investment is in excess of the wants of bor
rowers, which are very limited in
consequence of the prevailing {dnlness

six months, which latter bridges borrowers
say to middle of January.
There has been considerable doing in gold
loans on time, of late, and at high rates,

could not assent to that proposition, bnt if
they would deposit United States bonds to
the amount of the tax, they might bring suit
against the Collector at Albany, just as if the
money hadheen obtained by distraint of the
Company's property* and promising that on
the trial the Department would interpose no
technical objection that the money had not
been raised by distraint. This position of
the Department is with a view to facilitate

10 miles below Fort Griffin, Texas. The
father, mother, and a little girl. 8 years of
age, were tilled by arrows. These were
scalped and the bodies left with the arrows
sticking in them. Mrs. Lee's eats W6t£ out
off. Cordelia, aged 15, Susannah, aged 17,
and John Lee. aged 16, are prisoners. The
commander or the post at Fort Griffin sent
scouting parties after the Indians, but there
was great delay in their starting, to a
flood in the river, and ere hut small
hopes of overtaxing themnrderera. General
Augur fears that more extensive operations
wm hay© to he taken against these Indians
before th*y will remain peaceable. With.
Mexico on one side and the reservations on
the other, as places of refuge and security
for themselves and their plunder, the pres
et defensive system will not effect much.
General Sheridan, in a communication to
the War Department, says: •* We esu never
stop wild Indiana from murdering and steal
ing until we ponish them. If a white man
in this country commits murder ,we hang
him; if he steals horses, we put him in the
Penitentiary. If an Indian commits these
crimes, we civelhim better fare and more
blankets. I think I may, with reason, say
that under this policy the civilization of the
wild red man will progress slowly.”
