Perkinpon, on the night of July 18, 1870. fally fivo thousand people witnessed the exe cution. The fall of the platform occurred at 11:45 a. m., but owing to the noose slipping, death was occloetoed by strangulation, which was of a most agonizing character. The doomed man writhed and struggled, his pin toned hands madly battling with tie, air, his legs convtlsively updrawn and shot out, while his body trembled in throd,, of mus.'u lar motion. His death was terrible, and made s fearful impression on the vast throng that was present. THI IUIOVIgl INVISsTIG1ATION. Stlles's Testlimony Against Grover Re. tinted. [Spcihal to the Democrat.] BAl FitaNcisco, July 15.-A. .osier, of Wuseo county, was before the Grover invwesti gating committee at Portland yesterday. 8tlles's testimony was read wherein he spoke of Mosier, and Moeier testifled that 8tiles's statements weore false. He never was in iro ver's private ofice; never received a dollar, and never had $750, or any other amount, that he had received In Grover's oflce, or anywhere else. " say, in the presence of God and this as zeenmbly," he declared, "that 8tiles's state mont, where it speaks of me, Is absolutely end entirely false Neither Grover nor any of his political frien over offered me anything to vote for him. either did Nesmith offer me anything."

(i8pecial to the Demoorat.] Sr. Louis, July 15.--The suspo.sion of the Butohers' and Drovers' Bank yesterday - caused a run In the afternoon on the Boat men's Savings Bank, Union Sarjgas Assoola eon, Provident Savings Assooeatlon, North ; Louis Savings Aseqclation, Lucas Bank, Laayette. Bank, lCitizen' Savings Bank, and Bank of St. Louis, but these runs were in no Ssene extensive. The dmands wore alnmst exclusively made by small depositors of the laboring class, and were met promptly. Very few if any merchants or business men joined in these runs. It is believed anxiety will Ssuabside and business resume its regularchan nmls to-morrow. The Chlcago Collectorlship.

(.0nstantinople Oorrespondence N. Y. Timem.] Nothing can equal the almost desperate energy of the Seraskerlate in bringing up re cruits from every part of the empire, except the submissiveness-I should be exaggerating if I said enthusiasm-with which the popula tions respond to the appeal. This is a proof, at all events, of administrative efficiency in the provinces, and serves, at the same time, .to bring into relief the want of consideration which is often shown for people who are, on their part, so willing to make sacri fices for a government which has gen erally only thought of them when it has wanted to levy taxes in money, kind or blood. The conscription is popularly and not in aptly, called the "blood tax." hFi Perotes who, except when passing the bridge at the moment of the landing of troops or munitions, have seen hardly anything to realize that the country is at war, and still less that they are themselves (the natives, that is) under the reghne of a state of siege, have this week had brought home to them the exceptional condition in which is now placed the empire in which they live, and of which most of them know so little and care so little about, beyond what is necessary to their wants and tastes. We are accustomed, here, to visitors from every part of the globe-the arctic regions being the only exception I can think of at the moment--and nearly altways arrayed in their national costume. Nevertheless, the apparition of some thou sands of Asiatic highlanders, who arrive In batches from Smyrna, and paraded bbout the streets with naked legs and breasts, and armed to the teeth, did make some sensation. These aborigines are called -'eecks, a.corrution of Zet Begs or Zeibegs, :.ignifylng "iords of. the mountain." The first syllable ia of Kurdishl derivation, though, curiously enough, the word has be come strictly the des lnation of a tribe in habitung the hills of the Province of Aldin. This tribe forms only a art of the i000 now encam.ed at the too of Pera; the rest con slsts of Kurds and Turcomans, the difference between whom requires a good disrimilna tion of ethnological type, for their costumes -notably theoii headdresses-aro different, they are all very much alike in one trait, which strikes the spectator at once, the Im poslng collection of arms- a reular battery -which they carry In tihe fltls of theoi' waist-bands consisting of crimson stuff wrapped tightly round the middle of the bod to a depth of more than a foot. After putting them " under canvas" the next questin was " ~Iging them out.' Its solu tion will form another illustration to that in teresting vo(luno.e mstumrs AIpulairers de kl Trgatre, published, with lithographic plates, at the expense of the government on the oc casion of the Vienna Exhibition. The Zel beoks having given way on the subject of their arms-that is to say their weat)ons stand out for bare logs and breast, tae real objection belng to the restraint of buttons and breeches. It is proposed, therefore, to give them a hybrid uniform which which will preserve somen of the most characteristIc and least unmilitary features of their prmitivo costumes. After the notfanmir, or militia, romes the very last resource of all, the timarlotrs, corre stronding somewhat to our pensioners, with the difference that they have no pensions ex cept in particular eases for sDecial services. These atr the men, many of them well ad vanced In life, who have served their full timeno in tile regular army and reserve and who can only be called out in case of ht ion, and then only in great extremity. 'Iloilicy of this exhaustive le y may be disputed; the patriotism of thoseo who have responded to it cannot be. There cannot be less now than 000,000 meon under arms, or who will shortly be under arms; but a great number of these are raw recruits, such as lost Ardahan. This figure, which I am sure would not be put down as much below the mark by the Turk ish military authorities themselves, sl, at the same time very much below that at which the late on Eddin Pasha put the availa ble regular ores after his reorganization of the army and it must be rmeblntred that it has only been by desperate efforts that 000,000 men have been got together in a crisis which has roused the patriotic spirit of Mussulmans of all ages. CLIMATOIOGY. The Rqrkless Destruction of Forests Cans Ing Ruln in Europe. [ London Speotat r ] The evidence that the groat floods which have fromt time to timo during the last half century boon so destructive in Switzerland, alitd Inl many dlStlrta in Franes and Italy, vs been ainl I used by the felling of the 0 n '.°ou n eds, appearOs to be m Departe ent of the l, twas universally remarked tla ' ig grounds suffered no change whtl lithu eanusded distrit'ts the whole soil of. eiltd aid cultivated fields was swept aWay and the-roeks laid bare. The same was seeh th the Upper Rlilno in 1808. The cloar Ings In theprovltlnooof Ardeohe have produced tihe Most melancholy results within the last thirty years, oile-third of its area having be come barren; and new torrents had in 1842 destroyed 70,000 acres of good land an evil which has been going on over since that time. The denudation of the crests of the Vosges has done Infinite harm in Alsace. Many places il Provtenoe, rich and inhabited half a century agen have become desertes. Thou sands of torrents have been formed within the last doyen years on the southern flank of the Pledmontese Alps and in Dauphiny, and S.y ehlopes have Seln converted into stony miasna by the cutting of the woods above. tad D rtment of the Lower Alps, be twen 1842 and 1852 01,000 acres wont out of cultivation from this anuse. In Italy, the demand for Italian iron during the wars of Napoleon I., the trade with Eng land being out off necessitated vast cuttings of wood for fuel, alnd the effects are felt to this day, especially in the valley of the PO. In fact, there is scarcely a country on the Continent of Europe in whiich the reckless de struction of forest has not been admnitted both in popular belief and by the verdict of science, to have Ieen the cause of misery. of the amount of which the majority even of well informed persons .in England have little conception. (IIEAIP ('IiAIRM. How They Are lManufactured In New York City. [N. Y. Tribune.] The room was low and long, with four win dows on the north side. Near one of these windows sat a woman about forty years old, bunching cigars from a pile of strippings close by. At another window were two men finishing the cigars, and in the farther part of the room were two beds and a table, with dishes on it. While the pretended dealer was talking with one of the men in regard to the cheapness with which it was plossible to manufacture cigars, the door opened, and a ragged little girl entered with a dirty canvas bag on her arm, the contents of which she emptied into a barrel near the door. She then sat down and commenced to strip to bacco from the pile before mentioned. Thd man who did the talking was very loquacious, and stated that he could purchase cigars for about seven dollars a thousand. He said that the wrappers used were of Western tobacco,while the lillings were some times of a "much finer quality." To illus trate this latter assertion he showed the con tents of the barrel to which the little girl had contributed. It was half filled with what might be called garbage culled from the streets, and consisting of scraps of brown paper, cabbage leaves and cigar stumps, some of which were, no doubt, stumps of IHa vana cigars. The manufacturer then took his customer Into another room opening from the stairway, where there was a kettle in a brick fireplace, and a plank on which were spread out the gleanings from the barrel as sorted and separated to dry. He showed how the burnt ends of stumps were cut off, and the remainder unrolled; how dried cabbages leaves, boiled with tobacco stems and sumach leavest could be converted into "very fine to bacco, ' and closed his explanations by extol ling the virtues of the tonka bean, valerian and ammonria as flavoring extracts. NEGIRO EMIGRATION. An Idea That Is Belng D'scussea in Va rious Northern Papers. [Washington National Republican.] A correspondent of the Galveston Ne.'a, writing from Kingston, Jamaica, says: "England is tracing quietly, almost silently, a navigable pathway for her commerce into the very heart of the African continent. Around the great central lakes of equatorial Africa lies an imnmense region of boundless fertilitty, wanting nothing but civilized settle merits to make It tributary to British com merce and manufactures. Jamaica can and will furnish the pioneers for this new line of British colonies, and tens of thousands of black and colored men of the United States will surely follow in their way. All this is dim, incohate and sure to provoke sneers of incredulity. But with more tinme and space for the array of facts now developing, the most skeptical will finally admit that we are on the eve of an African exodu§." There is no question but that a great field will soon be opened for the enterprise of the colored race in Africa, and our colored citizens will be well qualified by education and tra in ing to take the lead in the great schemes for the development of the resources of Africa which the British are now planning in so many quarter~ of that oontlltie . It will otn a grakl field, In wvhi tch t ~to rted en of this eourit y !will .eo 'oppoti 14 to ao qluire wealth by .tequlturb d lmore and to acquire fame as pioee. b sd t.ates men in th litw comimonwelth which will arise in that Quartlar of the globe. THB PINITLVANIA CAMPAIGN. How the Oppmsen. et of the Preldent Pro pone to Carry It On.. I Hltinmore dnn.] One of the most active and hllht.ntlal of the Ponsylvantla Radical Republicans who was in Washlingtlon yesterday, said that things would soon ibe marle very lively for tle l'resi dent. He said t)ust his side intended to fur nish a gooid deal of fline ulpaign mnmteralls to the Demonert.s in the States wlereteleetions are to eoninit, thiu fail. lie sad that litho graphic copies by the tom would be tmade of theletters written by Mr. Hapy" during the last cmllnlpaign, incluHding the letters in which hie asked for mnoney to carry on the campaign xpenses, andl also letters written by him en closing copies of ili photoigraph to people in different parts of the country. This gentle mian also taid that the IRadieal lpu,ubliican were detgrmined to prolrh the Louisiana mnat ter to fiho bottarm, that thery intended to securI a copy of the agree ment lllade hotwe'en the Lonlisana conservativesl oln !n side s aild 8tinlll ey Mat tihews and others cting for 1'resldent Hayes on the oither side. This na, rn.m'rnet was and Is still supnomseal to e, in tihe possession of Minjor llurxe who was helre as the aceredited agent of the Nhic hlls governoienlt. Major Burke, while he was here and again in New Orleans, has boon frequently applied to for a copy of this agrv, imeint, but he always positively refulsed (t say anything on the subject. The 1'ennsylvania Rbicleals say that they will now make ihim disclose what he known through the mnellum of i ('ongrle.son al colmllittee of investigation. A resolution either intrusting thiis Investigatlon to the Commnnittoe on I'Prvilhcjns al id Eiections or raising a spe.'al connintte, for' tinl purpose will lie one ofr the first things offering in the Senate. **-~e-- THE IOWA GRIEPNHBAC.KEIIR. rhle following are il brief the planks of the platform adoptedl last week by the Iowa OGrnnblack Convmention : 1.

A telegram from Washlngton, 9th Inst., to the Balthnore (tzllzhe, convewys the following: A secret meeting was held here at the Eb bItt House on Saturday night lant, preshled over by (Gen. J. M.

Eight were preIsnt, or afmnlt one to a Sta't. Thely nmt to dincuss the duty of the conservative elemenrt of the Houth.ern ]). nmocracy toward the Pridehlnt's Southern pollcy. After a full expressionl of opinion it was dcid~ed that so far as the present polley is concerned, the Democraucy can and munist give it hearty support. At the satun time the opinion prevalled that all talk about tho'party splitting and resolving Itself In part Into a 1 ayes paLrty a t the South was not to be thought of. All those present were Old Line Whigs, aml in expressing themsnelves as quotel, felt conllident they were reflecting the views of their anilent Whig coileaguee at tlhe South. The mreting was imerely informal but another of more importanci will be heod here about the 20th of this month, just before the gathering l of Democrats takes plac( at the White Sulphlur. The inlltntlon is to have at that time a large conventiorn of the Whig elehientli to talk over the political questions o(f the day, and take such action as s05 el Isad visable'. -ý---0C---- lliak Hillls Currency. A correspondent of "fli'e t. Paul Pimter Press describes the u1se of gold dust as cur re'ncy as the greatest nuisance of the Black Hills. Each man isnprovided with his buck' skin sack, and no matter what he buys, be it a plug of tobacco for ten cents, or an outfit for several humndred dollars, he PIust weigh the amount out in dust. This is a vexatious prI'OexsA, and of course It cannot be often re poeLted without a considerrblo per centalge of wasto. Gold Is taken at eighteen dollars In greenbacks, and all theshopkeepersgive two prices. A movement is on foot toremnedy this evil by adding a considerable percentage to the price of goodi sold for dust, and many if tho more sensible minors are biegining to soll their dust as they bring it in, and'do their trading with paper money. Formerly there was much risk In taking gold dust, as it was mnixed with a material that it was impossible to detect by any test exce'pt thaut of acid, and few could spare the time to submit the dust to that process. Now the dust is comparatively clean and safe to ihandle. Ihe Real I.4Sle In the Next Conhrea. [New York tun.] To rebuild the waste places left desolate by the war will be the first cry, and a Southern railway to the Pacific will be asked for. As an offset to this the restoration of the for feited land grant to the Northern Pacific will be demanded, coupled with additional Gov ernment aid to vast visionary undertaking. Thus we have in the very beginning a log rolling scheme of a most comprehensive character. The great question is, whether by uniting the two projects votes enough can be obtained to carry them through. The matter will be canvassed beforehand, and will very likely be determined in the organization of the House. The Administration, it seems to be pretty well uniderstood, will be in favor of liberal appropriations. Can it gain ?votes enough on this groun d to place a Rlepublican or somle Southern Hayes D .mocrat in the Speaker's chair? The President's Summer Rlamble%. [%altimore r uu.] WASHINGTON. July lU.--It may be premised from the proagramime which the President has marked out for summner jaunts that he calcul ates upon having a very ,good time. The pro grammle indicates a more extensive swinging around the circle than Gen. Grant was in the habit of taking for himself. But President Hayes' programme of travel is so arranged that he will frequently be in Washington to attend to public business. By this arrange meet of his the anomaly will be avoided which existed under the Grant administra tion of the heads of government being away for months at a time and the whole machinery left in the hands of clerks. The Pope WIll Never Die. [Sunday Democrat.] In spite of the lying telegrams published in the daily papers of this city about the health and approaching death of lius IX., we main tain that the Pope "the vicar of Christ and the successor of Peter," will live till "the c o surmrnatioa of t Ic wVrld." FROGMOOR. A RAINT DAY ILON T.E 81 OOT33l . euat, Notwithstanding That Major Arms Makes a Clean eaore at the 8l *-Yard Range. Yesterday was not what could be called a sportsmen's day at the rifle buts, and the Ore cent City boys had to endure some unhappy misses, which were due entirely to the changeful wind and light. While the team was at the 800 yard mound the weather was favorable, and a cool grey light, so much desired by riflemen, weeas present, with the wind showing changes on the dial of 0:80 to 9 o'clock, Before the team had closed their rounds at the 800 yard target a light rain fell, which was followed by a heavy shower, stopping the shooting for a time. When the team went to work at 900 yards the wind Increased in strength, shbiftig from 5 to 1 o'elcek, and proved to be very troublesome. Wind gauges had to be changed with every shat, and some hazardous guessing indulged in. This oohtinued until 4 o'clock, with the light varying considerebly. Dairing the practice Mr. James Buokley sated as captain of the team. Ohe 500 yard badge was in competition dtirrg the day, with Meeers. Benaud, Babbitt, Bgekley, Capt.

The Land Ofice committee will now try to find out how the expenditures were made, and they will also call upon John Ray, Esq., to explain what disposition was made of the funds turned over to him, and further what disposition he made of the MONEYS HE DREW during his administration of the affairs of the Land Office.

We have received the following communica tion from Mr. Angand, the shoe dealer at the corner of Royal and St. Ann streets: Editor Denocrl--Confident in your impar tiality, please insert in your c)lumns thpse few lines in vindication of an article which appeared in the DE3IOCRAT of Ju y 11, in reference to the shoe dealer at the corner of Royal and St. Ann streets. The following is the real truth of the ca-e: The said shoe dealer, after having received two notices, and not complying therewith, was brought before the Hon. Judge Miltenberger, who propounded the following questions: Why no you not comply witn the city ordi nances? I am here to enforce them, and will do so. Answer-Your Honor, I came here to py my fine. I know that I am in contravention, as well as all other dealers in this city; but it seems to me that the city ordinances are geal. I do not see, may it please your onor, why I should be persecuted. I have done the same thiog for over ten years. I do not occapy one third the space that some of my neighbors do. Send an officer to inspect. To this the impartial and honorable julge said: "Mr. Angaud is with many others in contraven tion, it would be unjust for me to punish one and not the others. Please take our goods and let the order be general." According to that order, the goods were taken in for a week, and when it became evident that it was a peraonal pereeculi u by iu:uunw parties, the goods were "aaln put out.

The Chalmette Manument. Isn't it about time something should be done with that would-be monument at Ohelmettt? A reporter visited the place yesterday, and the pile that adorns the site of Jack son's victory below, the city. From an amateur standpolnt, the mon. ment looks exceedingly like a sugarhouse chim ney, and exceedingly nul'ke anything to oem memorate a glorious victory of the national arms. The ides of erecting the shaft originated with James H. Caldwell, who organized a corpo ration and secured State aid for its building, but it appears the funds gave out before its comple. lion, and it has remained in the present unfin ished condition for many years. The Lilies of the Forest. Yesterday as choioe agatheringiofpionfekers as has been assembled beneath the umbrageous shadows of the oaks, gathered at the City Park, for a day's recreation. The club under whose auspices the festival was given was the ladies of the Second District, who had chosen the name of the "Lilies of the Forest" for their organisatlon. of which Miss Lillie Morris is the president, D ianoig and a bountifnl spread rounded off the day delightfully, and the party returned at an early hour, amply repaid for their trip to the forest. ghert items. The Seventh Precinct is full of dead dogs, anad yet the police are not happy. The police of the Subuaban Station amuse themselves reporting broken and dirty lamps. It Is a good thing that there are a few soiled and broken lamps, for if there were not the police of this precinct would have nothing to do. Saturday evening, owing to the heavy gale, the schooner Monita, commanded by Capt. Boyd was blewi ashore and dsmagrd to the extent of fifty dollars.

The showers of yesterday afternoon put quite a damoer on the spirits of those picnickers who had looked forwaru to an afternoon of pleasure beneath the oaks and in the parks. During the evening, however, the number rallied and the dance was indulged in until the usual late hour. Judging from the n :lse, if you will, the music, in the Second District last evening, the ice cream venders and organ grinders were driving a thrifty business. The shrill cry of "Creme a Is glsce" seemed to be a sort of chorus for the doleful notes of "Norma" on the organ, while the little ones enjoyed both fesiwvities. Workmen have been engaged for a number of days past in plastering the entraooe hall of the Cnstom-House, and now that rather lugubrious corridor begins to assume a lighter and more airy appearance. The plants in Jackson Square show the effect of the late torrid heat we have been suffering. Some of the roses looked shriveled and parchea, even after the shower yesterday. In the game of base ball between the Franklin club and the 3840e, the former were victorious by a score of 42 to 23.

The report of the .der was brought to the oity by the casptie of gt St. Frtanio Belle. A DIUoonAT reporter, on learnlng of the af air, repaired to Algiers, where Serjeant P.joi. commanding the Algiers Station, furnished bhi with a horse, thus enabling him to visit the scene of the murder. After a ride of eleve miles our reporter arrived at Company OCanal. In the canal ofice the body of the murdered man was ling, welterlog In his life-blood, wikM flowed n a coplous stream from a wound in his left breast. Around the body was gathered a number of plantarion laborers, of both sexes end all ages.

Future of the Dansblan Campalgt. Mr. MaeOahan, in a letter to the London News, written on the eve of the Russian f vasion of uli aria, contends that Shumla cannot be the objective point of the campai.n. He intimates that the line of the Russian advance will lead across the Balkans from Tir nova either to Kasarlilk or to Shevno. There remains the maneuvre of turning theBalkasa altogether by an advance uoon ophis, t the hean of the Roumellan Valley. le thinks that the Turks will never give the Russeans a chance "to get grips of them in the open.'" At the Russian headquarters sagacious men look forward to the contingency that the Turks, after making as stout a defense on the Danube as opportunity may offer, may draw off with their forces as little broken as possible, and leaving but merne gar risons in their fortresses, fall back uninter rurtedly before the Russian advance till they gain the last shelter of the defensive popstcSn outside Constantinople, their design in this ignoble movement being the hope of forcin English armed intervention in the defense of Constantinople against a Russian attempt to take the capital. Mr. MacGahan considers this idea as somewhat far-fetched, but it is likely enough that the Turks will exercise ex treme caution in giving battle in the open to, or aecepting it from, their northern adversar rioe when the latter are in any respectable force. Silver and Gold. [Atchison (Kan.) Ohampion, Bep ] Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson agreed that it would be unwise to "attach the unit exclusively to either" silver of gold, sad argued that this "could not be done effectual ly without destroying the office and character of one of them as money." And this, they stated would be a greater evil than occsion variations in the unit from the fluctuation of the relative value of the metals." They were in favor of the double standard, just as Sir Isaac Newton and John Locke were in Eng land. And the ablest financial authorities the world has ever known were of the same opinion. But the money power of the East wants more than its contract. Itdemandsite pound of flesh and blood. It repudiates "coin" and demands gold alone. It is this "flagrant breach of faith," "as repugnant to sound policy as it is to public morals," against which the almost united voice of the country indignantly protests, and will continue to ro test until sliver is restored to the positloa from which it was taken by fraud, deceit and rascality. Pecteoaalias. [Macon (GO.) Telegraph.] Discord and sectional strife and animosity, however subservient to personal and partlsaan aspirations, are death to this feeble, impov erished minority section. We want pease We are content with the common rights and privileges of American citizens, ani ask no more. Our condition has improved so much within the past few years that a feeling of security, contentment and trrnauillity, per vades the entire Southern mass. We want no excitement. We have no setional ends or am bitions, and the men who charge them upon us do it because they are actuated by pre cisely diverse feelings and purposes. A Rumor-Only a Rumer. [Washington National Bepublican.] Madame Rumor, that irrepressible old lady, whose tongue knows no rest and is ever on the wag, announces that Secretary Sherman will be sent as our plenipotentiary to Great Britain, and that Gov. McCormick is to be promoted, pursuant to the civil service rules, to the position of Secretary of the Treasury. Madame also reports that Hon. Edward Me Pherson, the present chief of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, is to be advanced to the post of Assistant Secretary. If this is true, the Treasury Department will be 1on troll'ed by two of the most brilliant executive officers of the country. Wanted His Funeral In Advance.
