MORE BOMBARDING IN CHINA. The French Fleet Firing On Kelung. SECRETARY FOLGER DEAD. Prostrated Prom Overwork He Passes Away at His Home In Geneva. Geneva, N. Y., Sept. 4. Hon. Charles J. Folger, Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, died at his home here at 4:45 this afternoon. He had been prostrated from overwork for several weeks and his friends were not unprepared for the news of his death. Charles James Folger was born in Nantuck et, Mass., April 16, 1818. "When he was twelve years of age he moved with his pa rents to Geneva. He graduated with honors at the Geneva college -in 1836 and soon after commenced the study of law in Canandaigna. After three years he was admitted to the bar of the Supreme court and entered immediately into the practice of his profes sion in Geneva. In 1844 he was appointed judge of the Ontario Court of Common Fleas and was also made master and examiner in chancery, which positions he held until the Chancery court was abolished in 1846. In 1851 he was elected county judge of Ontario county and held that office four years. In those days Judge Fol ger was known as a Democrat, but disagree ing with his party on the slavery question he allied himself with the Republicans and has since been one of the leaders of his party in the State. In 1861 he was first elected to the State Senate and was re-elected in 1863, 1865 and 1867. When his senatorial term expired in 1869 President Grant ap pointed him United States sub-treasurer at New York, which office he held until 1870, when he was elected judge of court of ap peals. In May, 1880, Governor Cornell desig nated him as chief justice to fill a- vacancy and he was afterward nominated and elected as such in the fall of the same year. In Oc tober, 1881, he was appointed Secretary of the Treasury, for which office he qualified on November 14 and held it at the time of" his death. On September 20, 1882, he was nom inated at Saratoga for the office of Governor, but was defeated at the polls. Action At tbe Treasury Department. Washington, Sept. 4. A meeting of the bureau chiefs of the Treasury department was held to-night in the office of the assistant secretary to. take action relative to the death of Secretary Folger. C. E. Coon, assistant secretary, presided. It wai decided to close the Treasury department to-morrow and to await the executive order to close the department on the day of the funeral. The meeting adjourned until to-morrow, when suitable resolutions to the memory of Secre tary Folger will be adopted. The telegram announcing the dedth of Secretary Folger was received bv Assistant Secretary Coon from John Lewis, the body servant of the Secretary, and simply stated that beeretary Folger died about 4 o'clock, giving no partic ulars. Lower Rates for Government Teleg raphy. , Washington, Sept. 4. The Postmaster General issued an order to-day fixing the rates of government telegraph messages for the balance of the current fiscal year as follows: For day messages of not exceeding twenty words exclusive of date, twenty cents for all distances within one thousand miles with an additional charge of five cents for every addi tional 250 miles or fraction thereof; but for no distance is the rate to exceed fifty cents. For night messages of not exceeding twenty words exclusive of date, fifteen cents for all distances below two thousand miles and for greater distances twenty-five cents. For both day and night messages an addition of one-fifth the rate is to be made for every five words or fraction thereof in excess of twenty words. For cipher messages known as signal service weather report the rate shall not ex ceed three cents per word over any circuit established by the chief signal service officer of the army. These rates are a considerable reduction on the government rates heretofore established. There is a proviso that in no case shall the government be charged higher rates than the public is charged for the same service. An Oflfer to Rrown ITnlverslty. Providence, E. I., Sept. 4.

The veter ans left this city from in front of Sergeant Langdale's store on Orange street about 10 a. m. in two omnibuses. Arriving at their destination they found that the men, women and children of Centerville had turned out to welcome them. Long before the arrival of the company the ladies of the village were busy preparing the table for their guests and nobly had they done their work, for everything that heart could wish was provided and the tables beau tifully supplied.

Newman and Charles Tyler. Madison. Rev. Mr. Samuel Bushnell preached a very interesting and instructive sermon in the Congregational church last Sabbath morn ing. The evening service was devoted to temperance, the Hon. Edward Carswell, of Canada, officiating. By him the audience, which, by the way, was the largest that has assembled together in this place for a long time, was much amused, to say the least, all pronouncing it as good a "show" of the kind as they had ever seen. On Saturday evening last the drama "A Fair Encounter" was played by members of the Bushnell family in Boston street for the benefit of the library association. It was well rendered and all present pronounced it a success, both in its literary character and in its financial results. Besides the drama, Miss Warren read a few choice selections and Mr. Ericson Bushnell sang some of his fine solos, which in this place need no recommo dation. The "Jolly Girls" society have again come to the front with an entertainment, which to the lovers of music especially, presented a rare treat. It was held in the chapel on Tuesday evening. Mr. Gallup, of Hartford, commenced the programme with a piano solo followed by Mr. Footo, of Guilford, on the violin. The solos by Mrs. Miner, Mrs. Parker and Bushnell were admirably render ed. The piano solo of Miss Smith, our church organist was one of the finest features of the entertainment as well as the duets by Miss Smith and Mrs. Cudley. The whole programme from beginning to end with not a single exception was admirable and we are satisfied that this town has never had the pleasure of listening to so fine a concert for so small a plice. Our summer visitors have almost all left us and the beach seems deserted now that those who bathed so regularly have gone. There is no fun in a bath alone, and one has to scour the beach from one end of the town to the other to find anyone to swim with him, while the boats lie idly on the beach, with no one ready to use them.
