ticn and Royal Attentions Address of
. tls American Travellers.
Yalta, Kussia, Aug. 27. The American excur
sionists in the meanier Quaker City visited the
Emperor of Kusida in a body, at his summer
palace, three miles from here, yesterday, aud
were received with a cordia ity and freedom
from ceremony uuusual to royalty as seen by
freemen, huseltin oflicers remarked that no
delegation from Europe would have been re
ceived so heartily.
The Czar, the Empress, the Grand Duchess
Marie, their young daughter aud a Grand Duke,
their Utile eon, received the party, and the Ame
rican Consul read a brief address, which bad
been prepared by the passengers.
A number of preat dignitaries of the empire
were present. After, halt an hour's conversa
tion, the imperial family, with the Czar at their
bead, conducted the whole party throughout
the palace, and afterwards, by invitation, they
visited the palace of the Crown Prince of
BuBsia.
An invitation arrived from the Grand Duke
Michel, and the campany repaired to his palace,
where they took luncheon with the Grand Duke
and bis family. While this was transpiring the
Emperor and his family came along, the ladies
Id a carriage and the Czar on horseback.
The whole ship's company were the guests of
tbe impeiial household the greater part of an
afternoon, and were as contented as if they
were In their own houses. The Emperor, the
Empress, and the Giand Duke and his family
were profuse in pleasant asseverations of friend
ship for America and the Americans, and said
they would all visit the ships to-day tf the sea
were smooth, bnt unfortunately It was very
rough, and tbe opportunity of entertaining
them is lost to tbe excursionists. However, the
travellers have been visited by the Governor
General and family, Count Festetic, and Prince
Palgorouki, of the imperial household, the
Grand Admiral, General Todtleben, Baron
Wrangel, and many other distinguished per
sonages, and the day has been like a fete.
The following Is a copy of tbe address pre
sented by the passengers:
To bis Imperial Hlghuess Alexander II, Emperor of
RuRula:
'We are a handful of private citizens of America,
travelling simply lor recreation, and unostenta
t iously, as becomes oar unolliclal state, and, therefore,
we bave no excuse to tender for presenting ou-selves
before your Majesty, save the desire of offering our
trait ful acknowledgments to tbe lord ef a realm
which. tbrouKb good and through evil report, lias
been tbe steadfast friend of tbe land we love so well.
We oould not presume to take a utep like ttis, did
we not know that tbe words we speak here and tbe
sentiments wherewith they are freighted, are but tbe
reflex of the iboughts and tbe feelings ot all our
countiymen from ibe green bills ot New Englaud

ol tne brightest pages which has graced

In seasons of our greatest nerd. That that friendship

NAPOLEON'S ASSURANCES.
Circular of the Slarquls de BXoustler on
tbe Salzburg Conference.
The following is tbe circular of M. Moustier
to the French diplomatic agents in regard to the
meeting of tbe Emperors of France and Austria
at Salzbure. already noticed in the cable des
patches. The Marquis writes:
In going to Balzburg the Emperor and tbe Empress
were guided by a sentiment which public opinion
could not mistake: and I should refrain from
writing to you now of the Interview between the two
sovereigns, bad it not lormed the subject of Interpre
tations which tend to distort the character It pos
sessed. The Journey of their Majesties was solely dic
tated by the Idea of Gearing an ail'eci innate testimony
of sympathy to tbe Imperial family of Austria, so
cruelly aillloled by a recent mistorliie. Certainly the
JbeatlS or two greafc euiiuon uuuiu uu, wo .vkuc.
In confidlrjg intimacy for several days without
mutually communicating to one anotber their
impressions aud exchanging ideas en ques
tions of general Interest; but neither - the
object nor the result of their Interviews was the for
mation of combinations which there Is nothlag In the
present state of Europe to Justify. You remember the
language of the Government to the Hiuperor each
time that It has had occasion to explain Itself respect
ing tbe state ot things created by the military events
ot last summer. Our attitude was defined, first In the
circular or the 16tn (September last: again later, by the
language ot bis Majesty the Emperor at tbe opening
ol the fee n ate and legislative hotly; and lastly, by the
epee-heg of the Minister of btate during the Parlia
mentary debates of last session, we have not ceased
to show ourselves In all our actions faithful to the
Intentions which we bave Irom tbe first manifested
In presence ot the changes that have taken place In
At a recent conjuncture we bave seen the Cabinets
of Europe do JiiBtlce lo the straightfoi warduess of our
policy and lend their concurrence to our ideas of paci
fication. What then occurred was a guarantee lor
the support which, In case of need. Ideas of modera
tion would again receive from them. Tbo Interviews
ot t' e Emperor Napoleon with the Emperor Francis
Joseph could not, therefore, have the character
attributed to them by certain Journalists. Long be
fore uiettlug at balzburg, the twosoverelgns had both
attested by their acts and by the pacific sentiments
which guide them, that their Governments united
could not form any other design than that of perse
vering In the same line of conduct an hitherto. Their
conversation on general affairs was 1 nil ted to this
assurance, wnich was mutually given; thus, far from
considering the Halzuurg Interview as a subject for
preoccupation and auxiety to other courts, we should
see In It only a fresh motive lor confidence in the
pieseivatluu of peace. ...
I desire to let you know my opinion upon publica
tions of winch the object Is to create a contrary Im
pression. You may adopt these considerations In
erder to correct the erroneous views on the subject
which may prevallamong you. MOUSTIEU.
THE WAIt ASrECT.
French Traders and Financiers Not
Assured by French Diplomacy.
Tbe Paris correspondent of the London Times
vPxl'- "No busiuess at the Bourse, but plenty
of thassepot rifles in store. Thus may be
summed up the present state of alTalrs here.
Wot only on the Paris Bourse, but throughout
France, very little business is doing, for confi
dence seems goue and credit dead. It is
the natural consequence of a nation's des
tlnies resting entirely in the hands of one
man, that his smallest word excites alarm,
and bis most candid utterances find but
heaitating acceptance. The present feelins- is
one of mistrust and apprehension as to the
future, and the pursuits of peace naturally suffer
for it. The prevailing opinion undeniably is
that next year will bring war. Whether or not
it is predestined to do so, the belief alone suf.
Dees to work incalculable mischief. The state
tot chronic apprehension and restricted credit
seems of late to have spread from France to
other nation, and all Europe suffers for It. The
.Emperor's speeches, even the moat pacific of
eventualities,
"Hesides the accelerated manufacture of the
new rifle, which it may be urged is not unnatu
ral when once the adoption of that weapon has
been decided upon, other preparations of a more
significant nature are being made."
The J,ondon Times editorially remarks that in
France the danger alleged from the formation of
a strong German State on the Rhine constitutes
a good party cry against the Imperial Govern
ment, and regrets that the cry is met with ap
parent assent rather than with open defiance.
The bolder would probably be the safer course;
but the first condition of true peace is disarma
ment, and a decree for the dismissal of soldiers
is worth any amount of speeches and notes.
TUE J. T. FORD.
The Miniature Schooner Ashore on the
Irish Coast Additional Keports of the
Disaster The Property Saved.
Wexjord (Sept. 6) Correspondence of Dublin Free'
marvt Journal.
Tbe adventurous little craft, the John T. Ford,
from Baltimore to Paris via Havre, came ashore
at Tacunishane, on the southern coast of this
county, this morning, and it Is satisfactory to
have to state that her papers, which were en
veloped in a tin case, remain uninjured. The
vessel, notwithstanding the great knocking
about to which she has evidently been subjected,
still retains one mast standing, and her hull is
holding firmly together. This tiny craft Is only
two and a quarter tons burthen. Her measure
ment is 24-45 feet in length, 7'40 in breadth, and
2-45 In depth. She was rigged as a schooner,
had a f-barp st?m and figure head.
The names of the crew, as returned in her
papers, are J. Stanley, first officer, B. IX Riddel),
snpercargo, and Edward Murphy, seaman. The
Master's name was Charles W. Gould.
The name of Andrew Armstrong, who is the
only survivor, does not appear in the ship's
papers, as it appears he did not belong to the
original crew, but was taken in at Halifax,
where she put in for water in July last, when
one of ber tanks became damaged. One of the
crew prudently left her at Halifax, aud Arm
strong, who is a fibherman, was engaged as a
substitute. She cleared from Baltimore on
June 22, and from Halifax on July 16. ner
cargo consisted of one box of mattencl bitters,
16 bottles.
The following note, written in Ink on a piece
of ruled paper, was picked up this morning by
Richard McBride, west of the Forlorn Point,
about ten miles westward of where the vessel
came ashore:
Fridav. August 23. 18G7. Andrew Armstronu
whs taken oil the wreck of the John T. Ford,
and has gone to Bombay in the Aerolite.
H. E. Alleyne.
Old Head, Kinsale, N.NW., 89 miles.
The letter floated ashore in a bottle. The tin
case which contained the ship's papers, in
closed also several letters from officers on board
her Majesty's ship Royal Alfred, lying at Halifax,
and some photographs. They are thoroughly
wet, but are, notwithstanding, in excellent pre
rervation. William Coghlan, Eq., Collector of Customs
and Receiver of Wreck, .lias taken charge of all
the documents. Jasper Walsh, Esq., agent for
Lloyds, has claimed the vet-Bel for the American
Government, in his capacity of American
Consul.
NAPOLEON II.
The Remains of the Duke of Relchstadt
to be Brought to Paris.
From the London Timet, Sept, 8.
The Parisian public may soon look forward to a
new but harmless excitement The remains ot Na
poleon 11 are, it Is stateu. to be removed from their
various resilng places at Vienna, and laid lu the
Dwly rvatoreu vauli. or tbe Abboy of ts. i,nta. Tin
deputation on whom will devolve the duty of convey
ing them lias already been appointed, and consists of
Marshal Kegnauli de fct. Jeau d' Angely, the Duke of
Bassluo, M. de Cambaceres, and (ieueral Fleury. Mar
shal Vaillant la busy with tbe programme ot the luue-
few ot our readers require to be told who was the
Imperial Prince who was born King of Home and
died Duke ol ReichsUdt. The former title was by the
First Napoleon bemowed on his Infant sou by his
second Empress, Maria Louisa of Austria, an ouly
child, on whom centred all the Emperor's hopes for
ii, o ,iiiritttinn or his Dower and the perpetuation
of bis dynasty In his own direct line. That son and
heir was taken from bis father and from France
at tbe time of the great catastrophe ot the First
Empire, and lived In a strict, though gentle and
honorable, captivity at the Austrian Court, where
bis maternal grandfather, the Emperor Francis, to
wean the boy lrom the recollections ot his former
state, dl-alnguisbed him by the German title which
be bore till his death, and under which be Is gene
rally known In contemporary history. Between
tbe dowutall of the Imperial rtiitme and the restora
tion of the old Bourbon sovereigns there was a very
brief and trouoled Interval, during which by virtue
of tbe Emperor's abdication In behalf of his son, the
latter, then only three years old, may perhaps be said
to have nominally reigned ovf r France as Napoleon
II. Political Interests are apt to tamper strangely
with stubborn chi onological facts. The old class
books on French history, as placed In schoolboys'
bBnds, interposed between the execution of Louis
XVI and the accession or Louis XV11I, me reign ol a
Louis XVII. As the Legitimists would thus have
bad us lgn re tbe Republic aud the Empire, It was
natural that Louis Napoleon, as the champion of
Bonapaitism, should, by an analogous disregard of
dates, tklp over the restoration, the July monarchy,
and the second repuunc. anu assume tne assigna
tion ol a third Napoleon, thus giving color and sub
stance to that mere shadow of a Napoleon II. Inde
pendently ot the earnest veneration and affection
with which the present Emperor looks upon every
thing connected with the herolo founder of his dy
nasty, aud Independently of his anxiety to establish
Identity, and almost continuity, between the uncle
and the nephew, there Is no doubt be was prompted
in wis mailer oy a aesire to impress tne imagina
tive, yet, aB It were, STUibollc nature of tbe French
people. To Inspire them with faith In a Third
Napoleon, he thinks It expedient to make the
Second visible aud tangible to them. A King ot
Borne, transformed Into a Duke of ltoichsladt.
might have been little more than a myth In their
eyes so long as bis body was distributed among
the Imperial burial plaets of the Austrian family at
Vienna. But those remains, conveyed to Frauce
with great pomp, and placed In the abode of French
departed royalty, are something that speaks to the
senses, bringing the Idea, not only of a Uecond, but
also of a Third, and eventually or a Fourth Napoleon,
Into a vague yet material association with that long
series of ilenries aud Louises, loyalty to whom, for a
long course of centuries, lay at the bottom of a French
man's religion. By the restoration of his cousin lo his
proper place among the dead, Napoleon III hopes to
acquire, so to say, fresh titles to his own place amoug
tbelivlng. 3
The conveyance of the body ot the Duke of Relch
stadt to the Abbey of HI. Denis cannot by any eil'ort
be magnified Into so great an event as tbe voyage of
the ashes of hlB lather from tat. Helena. It remains
to be seen whether It will prove more benellclal. As
a general rule, a dead body had better rest where It
was first laid. Every grave aud every tombstone is a
page I u history: and their removal Is not less a per
version ol what Is true than a profanation ot what Is
holy. However empty the burial ground at Long
wood may be, the Ureal Napoleon did not tbe less die
a vanquished, broken-beailed captive at Hi. He
lena. The soil ary tomb In mid-ocean spotce far
more forcibly to the hearts ol Its visitors, and to tbe
imagination of Its distant worshippers, thau the su
perb dome under wblcu the graulle Collin Is made a
niercenaiy show to the multitude. For the same
reasons It Is. perhaps, to be regretled that tbe km-
Eeror of the Freuch did not think a mere cenotaph of
is cousin Beichstadt might auswer his pious or his
political purposes as well as a sarcophagus. All the
glory of a funeral progress, all the splendor of an
imperial mausoleua , will not do away with the cruel
fact that from bis fourth to bis twenty-first year tbe
unhappy youth pined away a prisoner In the midst ot
strangers, who, however full of tender cares for him
self, bad been Instrumental In bis father's do srutall,
and. almost unawares, visited upon hlui tbe terror
with which bis father's name bad so loug Inspired
them. It will be dlllicult for the most sauguiue,
eluht-lovlng Frenchman to attend the pomp aud
uas-eautry of the funeral solemnity without cou
lurliig up the linage of that pale, suffering martyr
to an Inexorable reason of stale, and without being
iruekwilb the painful contrast. Whatever bright
it!iiiei may have shone on the cradle of him whom
the French poet sailed "he W Vhomme," the
world s iympaihlei are associated with his death bed,
and cannot easily be transferred from place to place,
,.i,r: that man's, caprice or calculation
may suggest. It seems to be. however, a fixed Idea
with the Enmeror Napoleon that the trench people,
hie the Bomans of old, must b. supplied wflh the
perpetual stimulus 01 """ins "-;
or this melancholy ciirOv will certainly give the
Parisians something to think of or to talk about,
This, without going any further into the Emperor s
secrets, may have been bis primary object, and this
may polUy also turn out to have been the main, if
not ouiie ike only, practical result of tbe visit to
feaUburg. "
WHISKY FRAUDS IN BUFFALO.
A New Method of Placing Illicit Whisky
on the Market Ilenvy Shipments to
Boston from Buffalo Leading Citizens
of the Former Place Implicated High
Officials Suspected.
Buffalo, Sept. 17. During the past three
months (special ngentL, Hnwley.of Hie Intern il
Kevenue Department, at the instance of Gene
ral A. Rout, Collector of this district, has been
investigating the manner in which whisky is
shipped from Buffalo to New York and Boston.
The shipment In generally made in bond, tne
bonds being cancelled by the Collector for the
District In whlcli the shipment Is made, on
being notified by the Collector of the District In
which it has been received that the whisky Is
stored in a United Btates bonded ward house,
the Collector, Inspector, and United Btates
bonded warehouse keeper signing tbe receipt.
General Koot, the Collector, having been in
forinetl that whisky was selling in Boston and
Kew York at a figure below tne Government
tax, Immediately notified the Internal Kevenue
Department of tbe above facts.
There has been during the past year, on an
average, three hundred barrels of whisky
p hipped from this city to Boston weekly and de
livered In that city, the Collector of Boston cer
tifying that tne whisky was received and stored
in a United Btates bonded warehouse. Col
lector Boot, becoming emspicioun, despatched a
special agent to Boston to make up the ease,
who reports that the Collector of Boston has
been absent for some time, and that the ro
celpts forwarded to this city from Boston
are pronounced forgeries by the deputy col
lector, while the inspector states that he
never signed the receipts. Tne agent, on
inquiring, learned that there were eight thou
sand barrels of whisky shipped from Buffalo to
Boston that could not be accounted for, and
that it was not stored In a bonded warehouse,
bs required by law; also that the railroad which
transported tbe whisky bad delivered It to
cartmeu, who claimed It for the firm of Post
A Jones, liquor merchants, and who neglected
to take a receipt. On the agent Inquiring for
Post & Jones be was Informed that there was
no such a firm in Boston. He then telegraphed
to Collector Koot. who placed the matter In the
hands of the United Btates District Attorney
liyde.of Boston. Collector Hoot, on receiving the
agent's report, seized 0000 barrels of whisky
and 2000 bushels of corn belonging to
John F. Perry, the only shipper of whisky in
this district. A letter was received to-day lrom
the District Attorney in Boston, in which he
states that he has arrested six prominent citi
zens lor being implicated, besides havlug re
covered three huudred barrels of whisky. I
have been permitted to examine the receipts
Which are claimed by the internal revenue offi
cers of BostQji to be forgeries. They are signed
and sealed by Collector W. H. McCarty, Assessor
William J. King, and United States Inspec
tor C. Howe; and if forgeries, are decidedly
good ones.
From the facts which I have gathered, I am
Inclined to believe that the bonds were signed
and sealed by a leading official in the Internal
Kevenue office in Boston.
An Illicit Distillery in Ohio Two Hun
dred Feet Under Uronud.
Cincinnati, Sept. 17. In a coal mine at
Petersburg. Mahoning county, Ohio, John
Eckert has been running u distillery for the
past eight months without paying the revenue
tax. The concern was two hundred feet under
ground, but an officer found and seized ft on
Saturday.
Melancholy Suicide of
dlan.
av Young Cans.
The suicidal mania seems to be on the in
crease, and we have another instance of the fact
to record to-day. About 10 o'clock last nisut
Arthur Mowbray, a native of Canada, twenty
two yeais of age, and residing at No. 91 Clinton
lace, returned home from a visit to Kelly &
.eon's minstrel performance, at No. 720 Broad
way. There he had gone with some of the lemale
members of the family, and another prantlatnan.
Having but Jufat returned lrom an extended visit
to his relatives In Prummondville, Canada West,
Mr. Mowbray seemed to be in excellent spirits,
and in no mood for a sudden entry into the
other world. A few minutes after reaching his
boarding-house the misguided young man re
tired to his room, whence issued the report ol a
pistol scarce ten minutes later, when it was
ascertained that he had 'shot himself through
the heart, death ensuing in a few seconds.
When our reporter visited the house at mid
night, he found the deceased in a third story bed
room, occupied by him while living. The body
was lying in bed just as he was found by those
entering the room alter the shot was fired. De
ceased had evidently partially undressed him
self, removed his watch and money from his
pockets aud laid them on the bureau, hanging
up the clothing he had removed. Having thrown
himself on the bed, Mowbray had placed the
muzzle of a large-sized Sharpe's revolver over
his heart and soon sent tbe fatal bullet through
that organ.
None of his friends could give any reasonable
motive for the commission ot the rash act.
though they stated that he had frequently acted
in a strange manner, having alarmed the family
by firing his revolver one night at a fancied bur
glar. Their theory is that he was temporarily
deranged at the time, induced by over excite
ment. The inquest to day will no doubt elicit
the real facts. The deceased was employed by
one of the ocean steamship lines in this city, and
was highly respected. N. Y. Times.

to preclude their second use.
The first resolution was adopted after con
siderable discussion, in which the policy of esta
blishing a uniform tax was fully canvassed.
The Convention appointed an executive com

MEXICO.
The Car of General J. Gonzales Ortega.
The following communication has been ad
dressed to the Military Governor of Nucvo Leon
by the Mexican Minister ot War, with reference
to General Ortega's case:
Mexico, August 17. To the Military Comman lant
of the Stale ol Huevo Leon, Monterey: In the decrea
of November 8, W6, on the following subject. It was
declared that Senor Don Jesus Oonxales Ortega was
responsible for remaining voluntarily ahrosd during
the war without the permission or co. amission of th e
(iovernment, Tbe grounds of this responsibility were
twofold First, hy reason of bis ofllcial kbsenca from
the discharge of bis duly as i'resident of the Supreme
Court ol Justice, and by reason of his voluntary aban
donment of said trust during the most grave circum
stances attending the war. Second, by reason of the
crime of having abandoned voluntarily during thi
sail circumstances Ibe cause of the republic and
the standard of Its army while holding the rank of
y CI1 tfril.
According to article 10.1 ol the Federal Constitution
tbe I'resldent of tbe court Is responsible during his
term of ofllce, not only for his official crimes, faults,
or omissions, but also for all misdemeanors. With
regard to bis official transgressions, the rule estab
lished by article left is that Congress shall sit as a Jury
to find whether the accused Is or Is not guilty; and
if found guilty the Supreme Court of Justice shall
proceed to sentence the accused.
As to common misdemeanors, article 104 lays down
that Congress shall act as a grand Jury to find whether
the accused Is Indictable or not, and, If they find
alllrmativeiy, then the accused shall be made amena
ble to the ordinary proper tribunals.
The notoriety of lienor Ortega's absence was amply
sufllcleut to ground a declaration tht there was rea
son to proBt cute him therefor. But, as to declaring
him gulliy. It was considered more regular to await
until he would present himself within the limits ot
the republic, so as to be able to bear what he had to
allege In his own defense. For this reason, aud In
accordance with the constitutional provisions men
tioned above, Congress, lu tbe exercise of us ainole
powers on tbe subject, declared that there was
reason to prosecu'e said J. Uonzales Ortega for com
mon misdemeanor, and that as regarded bis official
crime, tbe proper measures sin old be taKeu
to try him when he would present himself within the
republic. In January ot tuls year he came to Zaoate
ciib, where he was arrested and placed at the disposal
of tbe Government, which might at that time or since
bave banded bim over to competent tribunals for his
misdemeanor aud have decided on the matter ot his
official otlense. Nevertheless, the Government
deemed that It might snspeud Its action, s It was
more important to at eud to the warlike situation
then and not sow discord among those who sustained
the nation and withdraw attention to a matter of
minor consideration. Although circumstances have
since changed, it seems preferable still to adjourn the
case for some time.
As the elections are soon to take place, the Govern
ment prelers 'o reserve fur Coi gress to take cogni
zance of the responsibility of official offense. And as
to tbe mlsdeiAeanor, as the declaration has already
been made that there are grounds lor i;rosecutiou, ft
merely remains for the Government to name the pro
per Jndge. Sllll, It Is deemed pi eferable to reserve
this also tor a time, In order that the designation ot
such Judge may be made by whomsoever the confi
dence and tbe voles of the people shall select as Chief
Maclstrateol tbe Kepublic.
When the Government postponed the case In Janu
ary ot ibis year, on account of the war, it deemed that
circumstance of the war as more Important than all
others than even the wish of Senor Ortega; but
own, although preferring to still adjourn the case tor
the reasons Just stated, it Is anxious lo avoid anv rea
son for complaint on the part of said Ortega, should

The Austrian Admiral Tegetbolf has arrived here
with a Mexican escort from Vera Cruz. He has
been well received by the Government. To

Cholera on Board the Liverpool Steam
ship Minnesota.
Rumors were sfloat in the city yesterday of
the prevalence ot cholera on board the steam
ship Minnesota, ot the Liverpool and Great
Western Steam Company's Line, which arrived
at this port from Liverpool, via Queenstown, at
midnight on Monday of the present week. Upon
application to the authorities, it was ascertained
that the reports, although greatly exaggerated
lu point of figures, were in the main correct.
The surgeon of the vessel states that on the
third day out lrom Queenstown, the sickness
broke out among the steerage passengers, most
of whom were Irish, and from that time until
the arrival of the steamer in New York the
disease continued its dread work among those
whose quarters were below the deck. The
symptoms were those usually attending the
cholera, except that there were no "rice-water"
diecharges in any instance. An eminent physi
cian counected with our Board ot Health is of
opinion that tbe sickness is simple cbolera
nioibu?. Others believe it to be the British
cholera, as they term it; while as many Insist
that it 19 the genuine Asiatic cholera, carried by
the Irish immigrants from their soil, where it
made its appearance recently.
Ihe matter is under Investigation, however,
and the public will soon be officially Informed
of the truth. Yesterday evening there were but
six cases of the sickness on the vessel, and it
was thought probable that none of these would
prove fatal. It will be seen by the. subjoined
list of deaths that steerage passengers and the
firemen ol the vessel were the only sufferers, all
the officers and those of the passengers aud
crew who were above deck euloying entire Im
munity from the disease. The steamer is lying
at quarantine, and arrangements have been
made for the removal of the passengers and the
speedy fumigation of the vessel and contents.

Governor Morton on the Finances.
Cincinnati, Sept. 17. Governor 0. P. Morton,
of Indiana, has written a long letter on the
national finances. He says the Democratic pro
position to pay bonds on the debt in Green
backs would be clearly fatal to the credit and
prosperity of the country. He argues that it is
absurd to pay the debt at present. He says:
"I would leduce the rate of taxation to the
lowest point that would defray the expenses of
the Government, economically administered,
aud leave the principal of the bonded debt to
be discharged in other aud better times."
A Case op Restitution. The special meet
ing of the Westmoreland Gardeners' Lodge,
No. 142 (Kendal), held on the night of the
15th of August, was summoned for rather a
novel purpose. It appears that some thirty
three years ago, when the Lodge did not mas
ter so numerously, and was not so rich as at
present, one of its members was entrusted
with a sum of money, more than .30 sterling,
for the purpose of purchasing regalia. The
man was young and poor, the temptation was
too strong, and neither man nor money was
again heard of until last month, when a per
son of respectable appearance and gentlemanly
deportment waited on the Secretary, and
asked him to summon a special general meet
ing of the Lodge. This was done, curiosity

result. It then came out that the person ef
respectable appearance and gentlemanly de
portment was the missing "gardener" of
thirty-three years ago, who had oome all the
way from America to repay in person, with
ample interest, the money which he had ap
propriated in hie poorer days.

Philadelphia Democrats In Town.
A strong delegation of Philadelphia Demo

sisting of the Hon. Samuel J. Randall, Samuol
Josephs, Joseph Megary, D. C. Enos, and J. M.
Uaglnnls. It is surmised they come to urge
upon Johnson to give them assistance at the Oc
tober election.
Th Return
The Presidential excursion party reached here
shortly after one o'clock this morning, pretty
well tired out. The President is at his post this
morning, transacting business. A large number
of visitors are at the White House. McCulloch
is also on duty at the Treasury.
Mr. Fits John Porter.
Fitz John Porter arrived this morning, and
had an interview with General Grant. His case
is under consideration, but there are legal did.
culties in the way, which seem to be a bar to
his request being granted, as he Is no longer an
officer of the army, but a civilian, and cannot
be tried by court-martial.
Then the finding in his case has gone through
all the regular forms, was approved by the late
President Lincoln, and the vacancy has been
filled, so that there seems to be no way in which
the judgment in the case can be reversed or even
leopened. . No decision has been made in the
matter yet. All the West Point Influence seems
to be favorable to Porter.
Suicide.
Rochester, Sept. 18. Charles H. Van Dyke,
Express Messenger between this city and Nia
