The Crlmlnnls Wait Five Minute with the

from tht WcUion (.V. C.) Sewn, May 29.
Yeetcrday belngt the day for the execution of (inn.
Tlaker and Jim. Thomas, two Wado Iiiteher mur
derers, at Halifax, early in the day crowd of blacks
and a goodly nuiniier of whites commenced assem
bling in tbo town of Halifax, with the vain hope of
twin K the execution. The murder is acknowledged
to have been a moHt atrocious one, and as the guilt
of the parties was not questioned, lut little or no
sympathy was manifested on any hand. All the pre
paration necessary for the hanging had been made,
an enclosure some fifteen feet hurh having been
erected in front of the Jail, with a rough but substan
tial Readout erected at the southern side of It,
Up to Thursday the prisoners had entertained
some hopes of a respite or a commutation of the
sentence but upon the arrival ot the respite for
Ueorge Bayliiie, and refusal of the Governor to in
terfere in the execution of the sentence; upon Baker
and Thomas, the two latter resigned all hope; hut
the manner of expressing their brclinps was rut her
strange, for, instead of complaiirng of his own
fate, Baker lost sight of this, and heaped curses
loud and hitter upon ueorge Jtavlme (who
was occupying a dilfereiit, cell), and
said there was no justice in hanging h;rn and
Thomas, and respiting llaylino, when all three were
convicted on the same evidence. Such were his feel
ings that we think hu would have murdered Bayliue
had the opportunity been oilered. His appear ..nee
was that of a demon, and exhibited the true charac
ter of the man. The cause of this hatred against
Uayline springs from the confession made by the
latter a few days since, and wh'i rr they declare
to be false. Thursday night they spmt In
endeavoring to court sleep, but without
effect, except In one Instance Thomas slept for a few
moments, from which he was aroused as if from a
terrible dream. Friday morning eauie, and, as far as
they knew, they witnessed for the last time the sun
gladden the earth with Its rays. Breakfast was
served them, but they ate nothing, only drinking a
cup of coffee. Baker asked for a julep, which was
jurnisiicu mm, ana tie drunk "the health, and long
life" of those around him. Between the hours of 13
and 1 the execution was to take place ; 11 o'clock ar
rived, and with it a despatch from iovernor Holdeu's
secretary at Kaleigh demanding that the prisoners
be not hung until Friday, the 4th of June next,
stating that the respite would be forwarded by mail.
Sheriff John A. Kcld refused to acknowledge this
despatch as official, and so telegraphed ilolden's
secretary. (Shortly after 12 o'clock: a second des
patch was received from Kaleigh, requesting the
Hherl.'i to stay the execution to the last moment;
that Governor Holden, who was in Baltimore, hail
again been telegraphed to. At 12 v o'clock the
Sheriff arrived at the juil grounds, ami proceeded to
arrange for the execution. During this time the ex
citement had been Intense, owing to the various
despatches, and the probabilities as to whether the
sheriff would recognize any despatch as valid. The
respite which came In the morning was in answer to
an urgent request from Mr. A. Coniglund, one of the
prisoners' counsel (but which application was made
without the knowledge of the prisoners themselves),
who desired that time should be given (Jus Baker
to Bee a Catholic priest, ho vBakcr) having expressed
an earnest desire to have one with him before being
executed, Mr. Contgland having telegraphed
(Iovernor Uolden early yesterday morning. But
the sheriff having declared his intention to hang
them, regardless of Jiorner's telegram, at 12
clock, Mr. Conlgland, accompanied by two ladies,
visited the prisoners' cell and read the services of
the Catholic Chureh to them, and praying with them,
until interrupted by the entrance of Deputy Sheriff
Horace Kcld, the rites of baptism being administered
after the prisoners were tied. The announcement
that the hanging was about to take place caused the
swaying masses outside to press against the wall and
move to and fro only gome tifty witnesses being in
side, including several members ol the press, physi
cians, and the number allowed by law.
The prisoners were then led forth Into the yard,
and walked, apparently cool, upon the scaffold.
Haker was dressed In white pants, white shirt, and
white gloves; Thomas in the same manner, with the
exception of colored pants, sheriff Keid, assisted
by Deputy Sheriff Horace Keid, then adjusted the
ropes around their necks, placed the cups over their
faces, and death seemed inevitable. But a few
minutes remained until the expnii'lon of the time
allotted, and the Sheriff declared his intention of
waiting live minutes to see il .my further des
patches should come. At this jiiujiiirc the prisoners'
counsel claimed that the time had expired,
and declared that the prisoners could not
be hung titter that time without a positive violation
of the law, and that by so doing the sheriff would
lay himself liable. The sheriff's own time wanted
nine minutes of one, aud many by slanders sustained
him. Considerable excitement prevailed, the sheriff
avowing his determination to hang the prisoners
within the time which his wat'h called for; but
when this matter was being warmly discussed, the
prisoners In the meantime standing ready to lie
launched into eternity, wanting only the knocking
from beneath them the prop which held their life as
if by a thread, a despatch came in from Jovernor
Uolden, worded as follows:
JUi.timohr, Md.. May 28. l . 7 tlie Slur iff of
Halifax County, A. (.'..- In response to the urgent.
. lequeet of Mr. Oonighind, the criminals, Thomas and
' baker, are hereby respited until the 4th day of June
next, on which day they will be executed,
W. W. llOI.DKN,
iovernor ol North Carolina.
The Sheriff at once declared his intention to recog
nize this despatch, anil this of course put an end to
the dispute though the excitement was but little
abuted a pistol being llred at the moment (claimed
to be accidental) by Representative LI ays, who had
brought the despatch in. Mime one in r.ue crown ;
outside cried, "Come down, Baker!" to which Baker
I responded '.recognizing the voice), "Oh my, Dudley,
thank God." The prisoners were then released from
their cap aud rope, and quietly con ducted bock into
their cell to be executed oh Friday next, for the
murder of Wade Ditcher in tins place, unless again
they receive Executive clemency, which is by no
means probable. In the meantime a priest will be
sent for to administer the proper rites to the con
demned. Aud thus ended what came near being an
execution, forming In its details one of the most
singular events wc have ever witnessed.
REMARKAKLE DISINTERESTEDNESS.
What an ICnrliNh Capitalist Mi.yn of Our Rands.
The Washington correspondence of the New York
tieraui contains mu iuiiuwiuk .
An extraordinary case nasonme to tne Knowieuge
of the Treasury Department. It is not exactly a cawc
of conscience, but a remarkable instance of justice
rromoneof her Majesty' loyal subjects. An Eng
lishman, formerly a member, of Parliament, has
written to Secretary Boutwell, "jving that he is a
holder of one Government bond to a certain amount
which bears six percent. Interest, He says that
this is a higher rate of Interest than the Government
ought to pav; that three per cent, is quite enough,
and in proof of his sincerity he encloses a $1000 bond
and some coupons, amounting in the aggregate to
about 1 1800, for the purpose of reducing the interest
to three per cent,, iu accordance with his idea of
justice.
Hinco sending this enclosure he has written
another letter asking to exchange Ills six per cent.
Bonds for bonds bearing three per coin., tu"t relte
4 fating his conviction that our Government ought
not to pay Interest to exceed t'nt rate. Secretary
Boutwell has written to him ami invited him to visit
this country, with u view to a conference upon a
subject ni which he has taken such an extraordinary
interest, and in a direction so contrary to his own.
It is certainly a remarkable circumstance, and unless
it can be accounted for upon the theory that it is the
inauguration of a plan to pav off Alabama damages
without the bother of Government negotiations, the
solution of the mystery will have to be deterred
until the arrival of the honest ex-Parliamentarian.

MINISTER BASSETT.
Ill Interview with President tlrnnt Venterday
-The Latter (Jives II In V iew on Annexation.
Tho N. Y. Herald' Washington correspondence
of yesterday contains the following:
Mr. K. D. Bassett (colored), our new Minister to
Haytl, arrived hero to-day and had interview with
tho President, Secretary Fish, Senator Sumner, and
your correspondent. Bassett, though belonging to
what young Douglass calls "a despised race," Is a
man of considerable parts. He Is gcod looking, ap
parently well educated, quite polished in manners,
well posted about political matters, and seems to
have thoroughly fitted himself for the discharge of
the duties devolving upon him as the tlrst colored
diplomatic representative of the I'nltcd States. With
all these good qualities he combines a rare modesty
which nicely distinguishes between servility to "the
white trash," and that, undue assumption which so
often characterizes the conduct of men suddenly
clouted.
"I going to see President Grant,'' said he to
your correspondent, "anil 1 confess it will lie an
ordeal a little trying to me. Some men like noto
riety of that kind, but I am not one of them. lam
only a poor Yankee, and don't, cure to make myself
remarkable." "In wmit part of the country were you
born 7" asked your correspondent, "Connecticut,
sir, in Litchfield," where, strange to say, licsides the
present Minister to Havti, John Brown and the
Seymours were also horn. Mr. Bassett then
firoceeded to say that lie had already
lad a short interview with the President
who received him graciously and appointed a later
hour in the day for a Inngcr'talk, stating that he do
sired to see him when they could be more secluded.
"I told the President J had culled to see htm because
1 had heard he wished to say something to me before
my departure to HaytL I said him that. I had gen
eral written Instructions from Secretary Fish, bu
supposed h 'night like to give me some special in
struetlons. smiled and said 'No, he had not,' bu
in such a waj Jiat I inferred that he really had some
thing special Jo say."
of the second interview with the President I will
endeavor to give yon an account, also In Mr. Bus
sett s own words: "When 1 went, into Mr. Grant's
office I found him talking with Mr. t rcswell, both
sitting down, and both smoking cigars, tllcro
Bassett smiled.) They both received me pleasantly,
and I was given a cigar by Mr. Grant, the remains
of which 1 still have (exhibiting a cigar stump).
Our conversation was free and cordial. Mr.
Grant asked me several questions about the re
sources of Haytl, Its history, customs of the peo
ple, etc., which I answered as well as I knew how.
Mr. Irant opened a map of the West Indies as
big as that table, and referred to It. During our
conversation Mr. Creswell also examined a cyclo
pedia regarding some points that arose. The Presi
dent was very emphatic, and at the same time very
cautions in expressing himself about the policy of
annexation, lie said his own views were In favor
of such policy, but that he thought In all cases the
people of a country to be annexed should first show
themselves anxious for union with us, and that then
it would be a subject for the consideration of our
Government. You see he was very careful In
his expression on that subject, saying that
even after a people showed themselves favora
ble to annexation it would still be a ques
tion for our consideration. He said he had
no particular instructions to give me. I told him I
could only bring to the office with which he had
honored me patriotism, honesty, fidelity, and in
dustry. He replied that he felt there could be some
advantage to be derived from my appointment to
liayti; that being accredited to the people of the
same race as myself I would be received with more
cordiality, and be enabled perhaps to be of more
service to the United States. I told him I had assur
ances that 1 would he well received. The Interview,
1 suppose, occupied altogether about three-quarters
of au hour."
Mr. Bassett, in reply to several questions from
your correspondent, related other things that occur
red at the interview ; but as they were not of much
account, they are omitted. The above is snl
stantially what occurred. At his Interview with
Secretary Fish he was told that there were several
claims against the Ilayticn Government, but that
they were not in such a shape as to require a de
mand for settlement. The services of the United
States Minister would simply be used in tho way
of friendly mediation. Mr. Bassett informed
your correspondent that he would sail from New
York for Haytt next Thursday, and requested that if
anything should be published about his conversation
with irant that It should only be very general. But
as the Interview is somewhat important, from the
fact that Mr. Bassett is the llrst colored ambassador
from the United States, aud as nothing related above
is to the discredit either of the President or of Min
ister Bassett, I have sent, you the above account even
at the risk of being charged with violating contidence,
as Horace would say. "just once."

Wlmt Im Now SnUI ot Ili Policy
A Washington correspondent ol the Cincin
nati Oau'tUi is one of the few fortunate men who
can telieitate themselves in having au '"inside
view" of Grunt's policy. He ha come to the
coiu'luaiou that the President desires full and
lastinu; peace. To the propositions that our
Government should seize Canada. Cuba, and
Mexico, the correspondent makes this re
sponse: To all these the Administration lias but one
answer: Let us have peace. To those who want
Lower California and the ri'ht of way through
Mexico: to those who want Cuba and San I)o
m.nuo; to those who want Canada and a war
with England, the President says, by his action
at least: (Mitlenien. the nation needs rest. It
has had war enough. Tim reconstruction of the
South is a riiuntic tak. The natioualcxpeuses
were plunn'nin us into bankruptcy; we must
have time to institute uriet economy and tret
the Government organized again upon this new
basis of expenditure. The national debt must
be diminished: we ennuot increase it and answer
to the people for it. Our policy with all forcinn
nations must be peace unless they insult lis, mid
then of course it w ill be war. But they must bo
the aggressors. Annexation, North or Houth,
must wait on reconstruction; on the institution
of economical measures of government; on the
reduction ot our debt; on the solution ol the
Indian problem, whicliliuvolvcs all the Interests
fit 'ir Great West, and the condition of tho
National lreasury ns well. Let us withdraw
our eyes from all other lands and work together
earnestly to repair the countless breaches of tho
war, and develop the empire we have, before
accepting the Uurdens which the acquisition of
more will bring.
.MASSACHUSETTS.
Mie is Bothered with a Itad I.rnislul ore.
lYtinsylvaniit, according to the Boston Trail-
Bcrii't, is not the only Suite that has had to deal
with a corrupt Legislature. As will he scon by
this editorial extract from that paper, Massachu
setts is, iu this respect, no better off than her
neighbors:
The Legislature has now linen in session five
months, and it is a remarkable fact that ncarlv
till the important measures are to bo acted on.
The liquor law is apparent!' no uearer a duality
than it was two mouths ago. But what is re
markable is that the measures so important
to tho business community have scarcely been
discussed at all. There lias been plenty of talk
about cider and lager beer, and the, marchings
aud countermnrchiugs on the novel subject of
prohibition have all along esciteit ttie mirih or
moved the indignation of tho public, and the
tremendous efforts of the smelling oniinitteo to
find out whether past Legislature have been
entirely pure, have been exhausting to
the weak and irritating to the strong.
But any great measures for developing
the resources of the Commonwealth in order
to diminish the rate of taxation any efforts for
substantial economy in the expenditures any
ecriotis endeavor to cheapen transportation in
order to compete with other places as to all
these there lias really been nothing accom
plished; and if anything is to bo proponed, it
will be in tho hurry of tho close of the session,
if indeed there is to he nuy close. It is now
whispered round that some of tho delay in
these! matters has been iu order to have certain
committees sit in the recess. We rather think
this feather will break tho cnnicl s buck. 1 ho
idea that half a year is not enough for commit
tee to exumiue subjects ami make reports, but
that the people must iu addition have the 8tate
House tilled all summer by committees who
may find this au agreeable manner to spend the
summer near the seashore, is a little too much.
Why not make the legislative sessions per

hays a New York Jonmal of this morning:
For the past, two weeks there has liecn an exten
sive prevalence of smallpox among the poor of this
city, and consequently a large Influx of patients to
the smullpox hospital on Blackwells Island. The
epidemic Is mainly due to the arrival of several emi
grant vessels, upon which were victims, most of
whom wen; sent Immediately to the Island without
landing In the city, by the Commissioners' boat Gov
ernor Fenton.
Of about ninety cases In the hospital np to last
Saturday morning more than one-half had passed
through Bellevne Hospital, all hut one or two in the
two weeks ending May 29. Week before last, about
twenty cases were sent up, and last week the fol
lowing arc the numbers passed through the hospital
each day : Monday, two cases; Tuesday, two coses;
Wednesday, live cases; Thursday, tlvc cases; Frldav,
seven cases; and Saturday, one case. None were
sent Sunday or yesterday. The victims were brought
to the hospital iliellevue) in the small
pox wagon of the Commissioners of Chan
ties and Correction tinder the order of Mr.
George Kcllock, Superintendent of Outdoor Poor.
The driver of the wagon, who has been employed for
that; duty for seven years, sitvs he has never'had so
busy a fortnight during that time. On the arrival of
the wagon at Bellevne the patient Is taken out and
placed in a small house especially for that purpose,
down by the river, and Is then sent up to the Island
soon niter In charge of the nurse. Most of the cases
were of people' natives of Germany and Ireland, the
Germans predominating. There ' were more men
than women, alsmt two-thirds being men, and seve
ral children among the number. The seven taken
last Friday constituted a whole famtly father.
inotlier.Htid live children living In Eighteenth street
between Seventh and Kighth avenues. Three were
tjken on Thursday from West Klghtecnth street,
between Kighth and Ninth avenues. Two were taken
from No. Ill Host Kleventh street, and two from No.
(wi Kleventh avenue. With the exception of one
woman, who w as In a very advanced stage of con
fluent smallpox, the cases were generally in the iu
cipient stages, a portion of them proving to be sim
ply varioloid. Four cases were taken from Castle
Garden by the wagon, and the remainder of the
number sent np were found one in a place all over
the city. There have been but few deaths, and all
the cases now In the hospital are in a fair way of
recovery.
SPAIN.
Did She Kver Intend to .llnke War Attains! the
United StnleHf
This morning the following article is given great
prominence on the editorial page of the New York
Time:
A statement made not long since bv Mr. II. J.
Perry, our Secretary of Legation iu Spain, to the
effect that the Government of Spain had resolved, at
one period of our civil war, to commence war
against the United States, has excited a good deal of
attention and curiosity.
From information that has since reached ns, we
are inclined to belive the statement well founded.
The determination of Spain was brought about by
the intrigues of the Emperor of the French, and was
based on a complaint that our Government had been
guilty of a violation of neutral rights. The 9th of
October, 18611, was fixed upon as tho day for com
mencing hostilities, orders to that effect having
already been sent out bv tho Spanish Government.
But through the active efforts of liberal Spaniards,
devoted friends of our cause as Identical with their
own, counter orders were sent out by the steamer
from Cadiz of September 15, lstiil, and the whole
affair was suppressed.
In the present, condition of Spanish politics It
would be highly Imprudent to disclose the names of
the persons who rendered us this service. They are
all now, since the revolution, prominent public men,
and their positions and influence would be seri
ously compromised by a premature disclosure of
their ugency In this transaction. But the time will
probably come before long when their names can be
made known and we can award them the acknow
ledgments their friendly services deserve.

The Spectator, a paper published in Hamilton,
Canada, says they had a lively time with a swarm
of bees on a train at Princeton a few days ago.
Some one had freighted the bees, and when the
train stopped nt the above-named place, it was
discovered that the wire gauze placed over the
entrance of the hive to allow the bees air, nnd
at the same time to prevent their escaping, hud
become somewhat displaced. The bees had
made the discovery tirst, and resolved to
"swarm,'' and make the rest ot the journey (to
some western station, wint ner tncy were being
sent) in their own wav. They did swarm, too.
and about the cars of ollleiuls. who lor some time
made ineffectual efforts to induce the saucy little
creatures to go back into the hive, and be good.
A dozen or more passengers, who ran to the spot
to learn the excitement, got their eyes bunged
up as the price for their curiosity. But all did feci
sorry for one bright, blue-eyed beauty, w hose
nose suddenly assumed alarming proportions.
Tho train started on, and the refractory little
creatures, who had refused to return to the hive,
were observed ou the wing a few rods behind the
train, doing their beat to keep up, generally
coming in, as the train stopped at differout sta
tions, In time to sting the brakeman.

y. Lopcdier. a French feuilletonist, has writ
ten a pamphlet on the secret societies of Paris,
which Is reported to have created a great sensa
tion, which it well might, if his stories are to
be accepted as true. Some of them are decidedly
lacking iu credibility. For instance, he bays
there is au association called the ''Society of tho
Trous Judas," which must be the meuuest in
existence. ATrons Judas is a hole bored through
a door for the purpose of watching people
within tLe room, and it is said that an immense
number of people provide themselves with gim
lets for this purpose. The Society Troas Judas
is wealthy, aud has an alliance with lodging
house keepers. At their meetings those who
have 'interesting" reports read them. This pre
cious union has twice had serious trouble with
the police, who watch them closely. Another
club is composed of cultivated and aristocratic
people, who actually believe that they meet
while asleep, in dreams, or some equally myste
rious manner, but in distant lands and wonder
ful scenes. One of them told the author that
he met their chief, who is a countess, in the
moon the night before, and when urged to
describe that locality for the bcneiii of science,
replied that mankind are not yet morally pro
pared for an accurate knowledge of the moon's
surface."

THE PKEN.
Tiie l.ute Revival f I.lltel Suits.
The New York Herald this morning ends a long
article on newspaper libel suits as follows:
For some vears there was quite a lull In these re
spects, and libel suits were rather few and far be
tween. But lately they have been revived, aud at a
rate so tremendous that, in comparison with the de
mands made upon the press by oirended honesty In
fot nier years, they wero as but a moth upon tho
sm( kestnek of a locomotive. The irresistible and
Irn pre ssittle James Fisk. Jr., of Krle-Urand-Opera-Hallroad
notoriety, tirst began to have recourse to
this sort of rehabilitation of wounded honor, and he
opined with a libel suit, for $100,000 against Mr.
Bow les, of the Springfield Htpubliean, and he
quit kly followed it up by another against
Mr. Oreeley, of the Tribuw:, for a like sum; then
against Mr. Norvell, of tne 7Vww, claiming another
$100,000, nnd finally against Mr. Raymond for the
snug amount of a round million. Nor to be outdone
by the railway impetuosity of Mr. Fisk, Mr. John
Uiivm'II Young has commenced about ten suits iu
ditl'i rent purts of the country, and two or three of
them in tins city, and two in Philadelphia, each at
the exact figure of $100,000 a trifle less would not
satisfy him. The Keenimt Mirror at Indianapolis has
lately been sued for IHO.OOO damages for llliel by one
Talcott; and a case Is now pending at Pittsburg, by
an ex-niember of the Pennsylvania State Legislature,
against the Pittsburg Leader, which Journal had
charged him with vanity and corruption. Thus the
revlial f libel suits goes bravely on all over the
country. There are now no less than 75rt libel suits
ponding against editors or publishers iu this country
try pi rsontiges who claim a plaster of greenbacks for
their wounded reputation, ami the total amount o(
damage alleged to be done to these 7ft injured plaln
tl:Vs sums up $47,00,000. Who will deny hereafter
the powev ot the press? . .

Prison cases were before the Court to-day.
Michael Tracy pleaded guilty to a charge of assault

eause tho bar-tender refused to give him tho drinks
he blacked his eye. He was sentenced to the County
Prison for twenty days.
Kdword McAnuny pleaded guilty to a charge of
assault and battery upon his wife, ami wassentuueed
to County Prison two weeks, and ordered to give
security iu $r00 to keep the peace.
Kate Johnson was convicted of the larceny of a
quantity of clothing from a lady with whom she was
living at service.
Ferdinand Kltlnger was convicted of the larceny of
eight chickens from Mr. Catherwood, of iertiiau
towu. Recent possession after the theft was the
evidence against I1I111.
Hose McLaughlin, a young woman of abandoned
appearance, was convicted of larceny and assault,
and battery. She pawned clothing belonging to
various members of her mother's family, and finally
struck an old uncle of hers upon the head with ii
cane. As she appears to be sadly addicted to the
use of rum, perhaps this conviction will be for
her good.
William J. Reynolds, colored, was convicted of
assault and battery with Intent, to kill. It appeared
that he entertained a deadly hatred to a colored
man who had accepted the position of driver of the
city dog-cart, and attempted to raise a mob to ex

Mary streets, but failing In this he himself attacked
him with a knlle aud inflicted several severe stabs.

The progress of the local money market has beeu
steady for the last six weeks In the direction of per
fect ease, and it is giatlfyiug to notice a continuance
of the same favorable feature. The statement of the
past week's transactions is very satisfactory, show
ing an Increase in legal tenders of $:!97,9il9 and iu de
posits of $161,023, but for tho tlrst time we notice a
falling olf in tho lomiw of $lil,wi compared with the
previous week. This latter feature reflects the
apathy In trade circles, at the same time indicating
the plet.lorio condition of the market.
At no time during the past six weeks have the
loans kept even pa':e witli the deposits, ami the posi
tive decrease the past week is a very significant and
unfavorable symptom. If this condition continues
wo do not ee how tho rates now ruling for loans and
discounts can be sustained. These rates, as wo no
ticed yesterday, have been very fluctuating during
tlio past two weeks, but we do not feel instilled In
changing our former quotations.

"The Government market was very animated and
the transactions heavy, the facts pointing to a re
vival of I'huir speculation In this branch also. Not
less than six to eight million dollars' worth of bonds
changed hands to-day, within a radius of two blocks
from Wall and Broad streets. The market was
stimulated by the sudden rise in London to 80V from
79 V, the closing price on Saturday. The better feel
ing abroad was due to the receipt by mail of the in
telligence that Secretary Ilotitwell had bought
the bonds for the sinking fund, and wonld not reissue
them under any circumstances. Reports were cur
rent that Minister Motley had arrived in England
ami made a speech of a satisfactory character.
The decline in gold tended to oirset somewhat
the effect of this rise abroad; but when gold had
touched the lowest of the day and evinced a dis
position to be linn, ir not to react, bonds became
strong at the following quotations: United States

"The money market was a shade easier, but while
the rate on call loans was almost universally six per
cent, on Governments, tho activity of the stock,
market rendered it a matter of no difficulty to get
seven where the pledge consisted of miscellaneous
securities. Commercial paper was fairly active at
seven to eight and nine per cent.
"Foreign exchange was tlrmer, the leading
drawers advancing their rates in expectation of a
better demand arising out of the decline in gold.
Rates ranged as follows: Sterling sixty days, com
mercial. lOsvtlOSV ? good to prime bankers , 109A

"The gold market was heavy at the opeuing, and
the price declined from 139 to 138.V. The purchases
made at the lower figures were very numerous, and
Indicated that some of the cliques had not only cov-r
ered previous speculative sales, but were buying for
another hull' I movement in gold simultaneously
with the sharp speculation in stocks. At the govern
ment sale fourteen bids were submitted for a total of
nearly seven millions at prices ranging from 138-08 to
188 mo. The awards wen! as follows: $400,000 at
18S-63, $.Mlll,iHI( at 13H-6S, $100,000 at lltstio. The i.s
