American Merchants Handicapped in the Race. , THE REPUBLICANS AT WASHINGTON. A Monster MeetingAddressed by Sherman. NEW YORK. American Bhippins; A Movement to Se cure More ct the Foreign; Trade- An Important Con volition. N-fw Yoek, Aug. 19. The proposal to hold a convention in Boston on the subject of the revival of American shipping is regarded among shipowners here as a matter of much importance and a movement in the right di rection. The convention will be held Octo ber 6 next. AU commercial bodies through, out the country are invited to participate, and will, it is expected, be represented. For thirty years merchants have felt themselves handicapped by Great Britain, first by means of enormous government subsidies granted to steamship companies, and then by the concentrated capital and extraordinary facili ties in command of the iron ship builders of tbe Tyne, Mersey and Tweed, so that Ameri cans have remained apparently in a helpless apathy while the entire ocean traffic of the world is being wrested from them. According to the latest statistics, the number of American sailing ships engaged in the whole foreign trade of the United States, Canadian commerce excepted, is 1,346, while the number of foreign sailing ships is 6,286. The number of American steamers similarly engaged is 61, against 592 foreign steamships. The comparison appears even less favorable when it is explained that of the American sailing vessels more than 600 are schooners and brigs plying to the West Indies or other near foreign ports, while the foreign ships are mostly of a large class. Of the American steamers only a dozen or fifteen are navigating the great oceans. Various remedies are suggested for reviving American commerce, one being the granting by the Government of a bounty of say $1 per ton for a period of ten years to all vessels built in this country : and engaged in foreign trade. This, it is claimed, would be a distribution of aid reach ing all classes. The convention will, it is believed, endeavor to harmonize all interests by drafting a bill to be presented to Congress which shall be satisfactory to all sections and open the way for the recovery of our com mercial trade. Mobbing tbe "Salvation Army" A Scene of Disorder In Brooklyn. Brooklyn, Aug. 19. There is a sect in this city who call themselves the American Salvation Army, their mission being to con vert all who are inclined to the belie that there is no hereafter or that their sins in this world will not be visited upon them in the next. The members are holding meetings in the Chapel of Little Jacob in Bridge street, near Tillary, but as their services are not al ways conducted in the inside of the building, and as their prayers and exhortations may be heard for a long distance, they have natural ly collected large crowds in the streets. Po lice were detailed usually to protect the wor shipers from insult. Last night the Super intendent of Police failed to detail any po licemen for this purpose, and the members of the sect met with rough usage at the hands of a mob who had been attracted to the little chapeL The crowd took advantage of the absence of the police, and, after yelling and shouting at the army or worsmpers, tney assaulted them with tomatoes, potatoes and other missiles. The Salvation Army was put to flight, and the mob was left in possession of the place. The Rev, J. C. Erwin was struck in the face, it is said, with a faded bouquet, and went to the Washington street station house to make a complaint. He was referred to Inspector Waddy at police head quarters, and the latter assured him that his flock should be protected. Altered Bonds A Sensation In Financial Circles. New Yoek, Aug. 19. The examination of Elijah Alliger, the insurance broker charged with negotiating a stolen bond, was adjourned in the Tombs police court until to-morrow on account of the absence of his counsel. Some facts regarding the case have leaked out. It seems that in September, 1873, Owen O'Con nor7 an eccentric and wealthy Irish contrac tor in this city, while in the vestibule of the Astor House was robbed of $50,000 in bonds of the Hannibal and St. Joseph railroad. Bond No. 2,984, for $1,000, one of the num ber stolen, was discovered in the banking house of Hamilton & Bishop on Tuesday, where it had been deposited for negotiation by Alliger. The name of Owen O'Connor had been erased by. means of chemicals. Police Inspector Byrnes was asked whether sixteen similarly altered bonds nad been traced to Alliger, but he declined to commit himself. He said, however, that he expected some startling developments in this case. It has transpired that other parties are im plicated in the bond forgeries for which Alliger is now under arrest, but the police re fuse to give their names. Alliger attempted two weeks ago to negotiate two Illinois Cen tral railroad bonds which had been stolen from the messenger of a banking firm. Alli ger, when informed that they had been stolen, took back the bonds and transferred them to the firm whose messenger had been robbed. It is ascertained that Alliger during the past six months has hypothecates! bonds at the Third National Bank to the extent of over $30,000, all of which bonds were either stolen, forged or altered. He claims to have purchased them from some man whom the police have not been able to find. It is thought this is only the beginning of a reve lation to be made relative to his dishonest transactions. Tbe Obelisk Flan for Landing tbe Mono lith. New Yoek, Aug. 19. The work of unload ing the steamer Dessoug of her 500 tons bal last is about completed and the vessel will now be taken to Staten Island. The Egyp tian obelisk will thfere be transferred to a scow, which will be towed to a dock on East river near Eighty-second street, when it will be drawn on land to the selected site in Cen tral Park. The plan for transferring the obelisk to the scow at Clifton, S. L, is as fol lows : The Dessoug will be taken to Law ler's marine railway establishment at Clifton, where it will be drawn out of the water and on top of the cradle. The engine to be used is of 50-horse power, and gearing has been attached increasing its power 225 times. The Dessoug with obelisk on board will weigh about 1,600 tons, and the capacity of the crfidle is 2,000 tons. The engine house sits fifty feet from Bhore. From it two inclined ground-ways or rows of piles run out 665 feet into the water upon, which rest immense timbers bolted together. The cradle, vetiich is 14 feet wide and 300 feet long, is hauled up and down along the top of the groundways by means of immense endless chains. The cradle will be drawn out into the water 365 feet to take the Dessoug, which is 250 feet long. 'When the cradle is in proper position at high water the Dessoug will be pulled "head on" to the cradle and both will be pulled up the inclined groundways from the engine house. . At this point the obelisk will be run out on a second set of groundways running at an angle of twenty degrees from the chief grounds ays. By means of cannon balls, hydraulic pumps and blocks and tackle the scow will then be ran under the timbers on which the obelisk will rest, and at high water will lift the timbers and obelisk and tow them to New York. The work of re moving the obelisk from the ship will take nearly two weeks. Leaping ftns High Bridge A Yossg Scotchman's Sara Leap tf Over One Basdnd Fb i Niw Yokk, Aug. 19. It was announced at Bigh Bridge, Wednesday, that at 6 o'clock in the afternoon Bobert Donaldson, a young Scotchman, would leap from the center of the bridge into the river. Long before the hour named persons swarmed in from, the surrounding country and took, favorable po sitions from which to view the leart Shortly after 6 o'clock a man was seen coming across the bridge from the direction of Kyle's cot tage. A lad accompanied him, and together they walked rapidly until they reached the center of the bridge. -They passed over the middle archway, and the man, taking off his coat, handed it to his, companion. He was then dressed in tights with no covering on his head, but with a heavy pair of shoes on. He climbed upon the parapet and stood erect before the multitude, waving a large white handkerchief. This was the signal for readi ness, and two steamboats in the river below blew their whistles. . The man : paused for about a minute longer, and then sprang from the bridge. Both feet were held tightly together and his figure was erect. His hands and arms were flapped, as a bird's wings are. In this man ner ne continued until within about fifteen feet of the surface of the water, when he drew his arms to his side and threw his head forward. He struck the water on the middle of his back. There was a moment of sus pense, in which the spectators held their breaths, and every eye scanned the water where the man had disappeared. In less than a minute he came to the surface, and struck out for the nearest craft. He was taken to the shore, and friends carried him to the hotel, where a physician rubbed him down with alcohol and rolled him in blankets. His pulse was found to be at 130, and ten minutes later it was reduced to 102. Donaldson is 30 years of age and was born in Tain. Scotland. When 17 years of age he jumped from the Sunderland bridge on the Ware, England, a distance of over seventy feet. A week ago he accomplished the same feat that he did Wednesday, but only a few persons saw him, and it was discredited. The height of the bridge above the high-water mark is 116 feet. Ran Over Bjr Sixty Freight Cars. New Yoke, Aug. 19. A brakeman named Buckland, employed by the Hudson River railroad, was killed early Wednesday morn ing. As the train was passing Tarrytown the coupling of two cars gave way and the train was divided. Buckland attempted to leap from the separated cars and stop the train, but fell to the ground and was run over by the cars of the last section of the train, and. also by another freight train which was fol lowing at a short distance. Sixty cars, be sides a locomotive and tender, passed over his body. A Corner in tbe.Porlc Market. New Yobk, Aug. 19. Considerable excite ment has recently prevailed in the pork mar ket in New York and Chicago. Therg has been an advance of $2 .to $3 within a week. Although Keene's name has been mentioned in the corner, it appears on investigation that Mr. Armour, of Chicago, a member of the firm of Armour & Co. , of this city, is a lead ing spirit in the matter. According to a sworn statement received from Chicago Wednesday evening, the stock of pork in Chicago is 129,000 barrels against 152,000 barrels last month and 93,000 barrels last year. The bulk of this is controlled by Ar mour, who is making things interesting for operators on the wrong side of the market. He has been manipulating the market for months past, being encouraged, it is be. lieved, by the large lines of shorts which were being recklessly put out for future months by the bear operators. To-day pork for August delivery, which was quoted a short time ago at $14, was held at $17 both here and in Chicago. The objective point is said to be $20 per barrel, and if accomplished there will be a number of lame ducks, as this month, it is said, has been largely oversold. Some interesting developments are predicted before the end of the month. The present speculation includes meats, and is said to be one of the most gigantic ever manipulated by a single operator in this branch of trade. A Disastrous Storm at Rocbester. Rochester, Aug. 19. A terrible thunder storm passed over this place between five and six o'clock this afternoon. The rain fell in torrents and the streets were overflowed. Among the losses is several thousand dollars damage to goods by water in the cellar of Burke & Fitzsimmons and Hone & Co. The house of Fred Bare was struck by lightning and the roof damaged. The barn of William Booth was also struck and three cows and one horse instantly killed. A fire ensued in the building and it was completely destroyed. Loss $ 25, 000; partially insured. New York City. New Yobk, Aug. 19. ' What might have proved a serious casualty with loss of life occurred to-day when the iron pavement in front of the building of the New York Surgical Instrument Society at Worth and Mott streets gave way, and the people who were standing there at the time were suddenly precipitated into the vauitr Fortunately beyond a few sprains and bruises there were no injuries inflicted. This iron pavement covers a space twelve by fifteen feet over a vault or cellar thirteen feet deep.

The receiver is directed to hold the property as security for the loan. THE NATIONAL, CAPITAL. Garfield and ArthurA Bousing Ratirlca. tion Meeting An Address by Secretary Sherman Remarks by Other Celebrities Washington, Aug. 19. The Republicans of this district held a ratification meeting to night in front of the City Hall. A large pro cession of local Republican oiubs and State organizations formed about half -past seven and marched through the principal streets to the place of meeting. Mr. A. M. Clapp, edi tor of the Republican, presided at the meet ing, and after an opening address introduced Secretary Sherman, who spoke about a qua., ter of an hour, contrasting the two parties.

The other speakers were Hon. A. A. Freeman of the Postoffice department, Jerome Carty of Philadelphia, Prof. tirenier.Ueneral Burdette and Francis Miller of Maryland. A heavy rain storm broke up the meeting shortly after 10 o'clock before the resolutions were read. A vote was, however, taken on their adop tion and they were unanimously carried. Onr Training Ships Why They Are Un healthy. Washinoton, Aug. 19. A naval surgeon referring to reports of cases of typhoid fe ver on the training ship Portsmouth, which arrived yesterday at Portsmouth, N. H., says that for a number of years the cadets have been greatly overcrowded in training ships and have been compelled to sleep in much too close quarters below decks without proper ventilation, and in many instances have had to' sleep exposed on deck in a climate to which they were not accustomed. The consequence has been every year an increased amount of sickness. A Dreaded Cattle Plague. Washington, Aug. 19. In June last the department of agriculture was informed by Dr. Lyman, its veterinary agent in England, that American western cattle affected with apthous fever, otherwise the foot and mouth disease, were arriving from Boston at Liverpool- Commissioner LeDuc made inquiries among western cattle breeders respecting the matter. Replies so far disclose the existence of the dreaded fever in Kansas, as well as generally throughout the South, especially in Alabama. The plague is evidenced by erup tions on the feet and mouth of cattle, swine and sheep, and is contagious, even affecting man. Q.lersen's Pursuit of the Hosttlss His Operations Impeded by the Indian Agency. Washington, Aug. 19. Colonel Grierson has forwarded a valuable and interesting re port of the operations of his command in assisting in disarming the Indians at Mesca lero agency and the pursuit of the hostile In dians after having several fights with the In dians on the morning of the 12th of April. Having found the TrdiftT1 camp, and when about to close around, attack and drive in the Tndiapa he was met by a courier from the agency with a letter from Agent WQSam Russell notifying Kim that the Indians en camped in the mountains adjoining the Tu larosa were there by his direct order and au thority ; that they were good, quiet, peacea ble Indiana who should not be molested, etc. He says : "I was also informed by the courier that the TnKana had been ordered to come in that day te the agency, that he was on his way to his camp, that General Hatch had not arrived but was expected during the day." From that time forward, according to the reports, the action of the military was obstructed by the orders from the Interior department and the result was that only few Tnniana were disarmed, while the rest made their escape and joined Victoria, thus enabling that chief to continue upon the war path up to the present time. Had the mili tary been permitted to disarm the Indians when first driven into camp, the probabilities are that Victoria and his band would long since have been captured and the war ended. NEW ENGLAND. Massachusetts. ' . H The Trotting at Springfield St. Jnlien Wins the Freo-Vor-All Maud S. Falls I Against Time. Springfield, Aug. 19. There was a large crowd present at the Hampden Driving Park to-day, many of whom were drawn there to see Maud S. trot against her Rochester record of 2:11J, and St. Julien in the free-for-all. In the 2:30 class, for a purse of $1,000, Par ana won the first heat, with Edwin Thorne second and John Clark third; time, 22i. The second heat was won by Parana, with Freeman second and Edwin Thorne third ; time, 2: 25 J. Parana also won the third heat and the race, with Lady Martin second and Hector third; time, 2:25.

St. Julien's driver was presented with a magnifi cent floral horse shoe. Maud S. trotted three heats, for which she had to seore half a dozen times. In the first she broke on the first quarter and jogged around. The second she made in 2:20. The crowd became very impatient at the de lays, but when the queen was sent for the last time they were again in good humor. The first quarter was slow, but on the last stretch she got down to work and she in creased her speed to the finish. The mile was trotted in 2:19, the last quarter being in 33J-, while the first was 3C and the half 1:10J. A floral horse shoe in readiness for Maud, in case she beat her Rochester record, was not used. The track was in bad condi tion, owing to a new layer of gravel, which had not been trodden down. Fully 10,000 people were present. Rovrell's Next Competitor. Boston, Aug. 19.

PENNSYLVANIA. Pierced to the Heart Awful Tragedy In a Corn field The Brave Act of a Little Boy. Lancaster, Aug. 19. Tuesday night a man was discovered stealing corn in one of the fields of E. H. Kaufman, living on the Harrisburg turnpike, fifteen miles from this place, by Abraham Kaufman, a nephew of William Kaufman, aged fourteen years, and Andrew Miller, a farm hand, aged eighteen years. There have been a great many depre dations of the kind, and these boys were watching while the thief was prowling around the field pulling off corn and depositing it into a large bag which he carried on his back. Miller approached the man, saying, "I want to see who you are," when the thief, without a moment's notice, pulled out a large bone handled knife and plunged the large blade into Miller's body, almost piercing his heart. The boy fell down, bleeding terribly. The thief stooped over him to plunge the knife again, when little Abraham Kaufman picked up a large stone and dealt him a terrible blow, striking the forehead and rendering him insensible. Then the lad ran for his un cle, who lived some distance away, and told him of the fight. The uncle mounted a horse and rode to the scene of the conflict. Upon arriving there the thief, who had partially re covered, had crawled under a fence and laid down to conceal himself. Upon examination it was found that he was partly under the in fluence of liquor and very desperate. Mr. Kaufman could not take the man to town without assistance. Shortly after three farm hands came along, and with their help they secured and bound the thief and brought him to this city in a- wagon. They lodged the man in jail. The thief was recognized by the po lice authorities as John Meyers, about fifty years old, living in this place. He has long been a desperate character. When told that he had stabbed the young man and that he could not recover, he replied, "That's right ; I ought to have killed him outright." Young Miller was taken to his home and medical aid quickly summoned. Upon examination it was found that he had received a terrible gash about an eighth of an inch below the heart, and his recovery is very doubtful. Great ex citement prevails in the neighborhod of the tragedy, and threat3"of lynching were freely indulged in. THE WEST. Illinois. Chicago's Knightly Visitors The Crowds Turning Homeward Election of Of ficers. Chicago, Aug. 19. The Knights Templar and other visitor t are rapidly leaving the city by every train. The railroads find it impos sible to accommodate the crowds. Still there are many remaining and the city continues full of strangers. It is cool and pleasant to day. Such weather yesterday would have been a great boon for the thousands attending the prize drills. The encampment is still in tact, but will no doubt be nearly deserted be fore to-night. The display of fireworks last night was very fine, although at too late an hour. Hundreds of thousands of people were kept standing on the lake front and ave nues until two or three o'clock in the morn ing, and then many were obliged to walk to their homes, in many instances three or four miles. The Grand Encampment has been in ses sion behind closed doors all the forenoon and is now electing officers. Much opposition was made to holding another triennial con clave on such a magnificent scale, but it was finally decided to hold one at San Francisco in 1883, the Templars from California guar anteeing it should not cost any Sir Knight over $20 for the round trip. V. G. Benja min Dean, of Boston, was chosen grand master. Colorado. Murdered for His Money Two Mexicans Kill a Sleeping Man. Denver, Aug. 19.

The stock market opened with something of a dash in contrast with the lifeless features of the two days previous. Prices come dashing in at something of sn altitude as if things were to be active. Any sort of change was gratifying, but there was a lack of staying quality in the market up to the noon hour. There was activity and strength, bnt outside of a few stocks that were ''bulled" up the market was fitful and lacked the grip and hold-on features many would like to have it assume.
