LOUIsVILLE, Sept. 1. ---The presidential party visited Jeffersonville. The President said hle was thankful for the reception and closed his remarks by saying he hoped all see 1i ons and all races may comel together again ,the fraternal harmony of the days of ashinjton, Franklin and Jefferson. Mrs. Hayes and the entire party witnessed 1 " the operation of casting plate glass. At night the entire city of Louisville was illuminated in honor of his Excellency. The display in this respect was one of surprising magnificence. It had been arranged that all should attend the Exposition in the evening, and there bid a final farewell to the people. The route thereto, from 8 to 11 o'clock, pre sented a scene of unusual beauty and splen dor. Such a sight is rarely to be witnessed anywhere, certainly never before in the South wet. N.othing like a just description of the streets and houses, as they appeared in their decorative splendor to-night, is possible. The Central colored school was next visited. Trustee T. H. Shirley made the address of welcome, and Horace ,Iorris, a colored man, spoke in the same strain. Exercises in music, vocal and instrumental, followed, and also general readings by the children. In speaking here the President said: "Our visit is so short that there will not be time for any remarks. If I wereto call up my friends you would all be glad to see them but I can tell you their speech; perhaps I had better tellyou an anec.dote to illustrate that; The anecdote was that of the man whose economy of time caused him to do this; in stead of repeating a prayer each night he had a good one printed and hung over his, bed, and on retiring pointed to it and said: 'Them's my sentiments.' Mr. Evarts and the others would say the same." TEe PREiIDET T AT NASHVILLE. More Speeehes, Bouquet Presentations and Applause.

'I a LNow Yotk Times.] a The members of the executive counoil of the Bankers' Convention, in discuss- . ing the work of the convention at the Wiudsor Hotel on Friday evening, again r discussed the plan suggested by Mr. George S. Coe president of the Amer- a can Exchange National Bank, for assist ing the government in the resumption 1 of specie payments. Mr. Coe's plan contemplates the accoumulation of a coin reserve with the banks, where it can be employed in loans and discounts, t instead of a withdrawal of the coin into the United States Treasury, where it would be of no use until resumption is accomplished. The substitution of transactions on a gold basis for those on a currency basis will thus gradually take place without doing violence to any business interests or in any way t checking them. The plan had, before it was explained to the convention, re ceived the assent of fficers of banks representing $50,000,000 of capital. At the previous meeting of bankers in this city to present the plan to Congress a committee was appointed, and on Fri day evening the Executive Council ap pointed the following committee to con- t fer with the earlier committee for the purpose of urging the matter upon the Secretary of the Treasury: William 0. Deshlor, Ohio; J. 1). Hayes, Detroit; Mr. Tyler, Boston; Morton McMichael, Philadelphia; Unarles Prsons, St. Louis, and George S. Coo, F. A. Palmer, J. D. Vvrmilye, C. M. Fry, Charles Jnu kins, P. C. Calhoun and F. O. French. The plan can, it is said, be put into operation without legislation, and the committee will make an effort to secure the practical testing of it at once. - -.-- .-.~- --- - VIRGINIA LIQUOR REGINTERN. The Richmond (Va.) tute says '"The liquor registering machines were placed in most of the liquor establishments in ii Richmond on Wednesday, and of course c excited great attention, giving rise to no little discussion. The plan adopted by r the liquor sellers to lay the tax on the l, consumer seems to be uniform as to I alcoholic compounds-- -in every case that y came to our notice the price per drink a being raised from 10 cents to 15 cents, or t 1 5 cents for two drinks. This arrange- 1 ment pays the 2} cents to the State and t leaves a margin to the bar-room to pay a for a register clerk, if one shall be need- t ed, in tipme of crowd and hurry. As to c beer and malt beverages generally, two t plans seem now to be tried, some lager e sellers increasing the price of a glass of a beer to G cents, and others, wiser and a more farseeing, reducing the size of the a glass. It begins to be understood e already ttmt the register is also a check x on dishonest bartenders, thus cutting < off a margin of loss; also, that the in- c former clause of the law protects the honest dealer from the knavish; also, y that the credit system and all its vast I loss is abolished." t --- ý---- e STARVATION PREFERRED TO WORK. 8 t [New York Times.] SHENANDOAH, Pa., Sept. 14.-An im mense mass meeting of all the colliery employes in this city was held to-night I on Lover's Hill. A committee from 1 Scranton were present and addressed I the crowd. They stated that unless the 1 Schuylkill miners would assist their un- t fortunate brethren in Upper Luzerne, e they would starve, as they certainly a would not go to work until they received an advance of 25 per cent. "We will t not succumb, it we drop dead with I hunger," said one of the committee. E It was finally decided that the commit- c K tee should station themselves at three c ' or four collieries to -orrow afternoon, I a and as each man received his month's I pay he should tear open his envelope I a and give the committee as much as he y could possibly spare. About $125,000 will be paid out here to-morrow, and it < is pretty certain that at least $1000 will find its way into the hands of this re lief committee. Other parts of the * county propose contributing to the ex tent of their abilities, and a good round sum will be collected. I ---.norc-- - Is QERMAANY FOR PEARAE? In the September number of The Ntne. teenath Century Mr. George Von Bunsen, a distinguished member of the German tl parliament, says that Germany wants C peace, and that no campaign, however S successful, could add a single desirable t4 aqre of land to her territory, north or south, east or west. She cares little about the Danube, because German a commerce uses that river but little. If d she has threatened France with war, It was only "as a last means to avert war." Of course, such a proceeding does not t bear frequent repetition; but its effect e so far has been "peace and the sub sidence of understobd machinations." As for Russia, "as long as France a revels in her frightful dreams of a s war of retallation and spoliation Ger- m many has no choice but to remain on a good terms with the government at St. S Petersburg; and, at the same time, it is i, t for Rusila's interest to reciprocate, be- t cause Russia "will soon claim German assistance in the opening of the " Dardanolles to her own men-of-war, and i in the lasting emancipation of the C Slav." She will also soon claim Arme- a nia, and "it ban be no obligation of ours v to prevent her from defraying the im- I mense cost of this war by the perma- , ri nent conquest of an Asiatic province, even though it may place the approaches Sof one more sea within her easy grasp." t If England objects, give her Egypt, and she will be more than satisfiled. If a Russian occupation of the Dardanelles t ,r and the Bosphorus shall close that o highway to the commerce or all nations i except Russia, why Germany will be no more affected than any other country, and a concerted action of all European powers will be in place. Denmark, Bo t hemia and Holland are not wanted, be cause German government is parlin mentary. and the present "hostile brigade" in Parliament is large enough. ,t Why increase itand strife with it? In a word, whatever may be said to the con. trary, Germany really is exceedingly desirous of keeping the peace. . .. . ,,. ,41. ... . . TURHIIMH CIVILIZATION: [N. Y. Y. Times.] Religious toleration which, as regards 'r all sects but the M'oslem, existed in v Turkey before it was even dreamed of tl in Christendom, has been extended to Mohammedans, and a man may now in Turkey accept any faith he chooses, A and be actually protected in it. Such ti absolute toleration exists elsewhere it only in Great Britsin, the United States and Germany, and one or two of the N minor States of Europe. Numerous pe- t riodicals have been established in Con stantinople and Smyrna, and elsewhere, and the censorship of the press is less oppressive than in France. Numerous works have been printed, and scholars s like Achmet Vefik Pasha would be cred- a Itable to any people. Military and med- d ical colleges, and numerous universities H and educational institutions, supported by the government or by private enter prise, have been founded, while the cir culatlon of the Bible and religious Y works of every manner of belief is 2 carried on throughout the Empire with perfect freedom. The army and navy a are organized and armed entirely upon i1 European models, with the exception of the irregular soldiery, and many of the officers and members of the government have been educated abroad. The slave trade in women has been practically 1 abolished, and there is a strong ten- d dency to introduce reforms in the garb and regulations of the harem itself. And, to crown all, a legislative body has f been organized and Moslem and Chris ti-an have been placed on an equality. These and numerous other reforms have " all been accomplished within forty t years, and have naturally met with op position from the conservatives, while the brevity of the time that has since elapsed does not allow us yet fully to judge of the possible results. But it is only fair to the Turks to allow them credit for the reforms they have at tempted to accomplish, and for the fact that if some of these reforms had de pended upon the fanaticism of the na tive Christians little would have been done in this direction. RAILROAD EMPLOYEW BUDING FARM.I. 1 The Omaha (Neb.) Bee, of the 12th I I inst., says: "The employes of the Chi S cago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad > have formed an association for the pur pose of buying 50,000 acres of Nebraska 3 land from the Burlington and Missouri ) River Land Company. The objects in t view are: First, the obtaining of a good, r secure investment of savings; second, r the securingof lands at the present very low prices; third, to obtain by combina 1 tion wholesale prices on the lands. The I V association has made a proposition to the land department to buy 50,000 acres 0 of land in different counties south of I the Platte river, Nebraska, with an av r erage appraised credit price of $4 per f acre, the same to be turned over to the 3 association at the rate of $1 80 per s acre, payable in monthly installments a extending over two years. Under this k plan any Chicago, Burlington and 3 Quincy employe can buy, say 80 acres of land, appraised at $4 per acre, credit © price, for $1 80 per acre, total $144, which would probably be paid in month t ly installments of $6 per month, ex tending over two years, without inter est. Thus a man can get a farm for the small payment of $1 50 per week for two years." THE INDIAN FAMINE. y With what severity the famine in .t India is pressing upon the natives it is a happily impossible for Americans to d imagine. A native Hindoo, who signs e himself "Dharwar," describes some of i- the scenes of suffering incident to the 3, calamity in a letter to the Times of y India. He speaks in his letter of people d eating the seeds of the bamboo and it tamarind and the leaves of various h forest trees baited with a little salt and 3. eaten with a coarse bread, three parts t- of which are dust and chaff. In some e of the towns, says the correspondent, , the poor people lick the patravalees, s the leaves from which others have eaten e their food; devour mango peels and the e rotten fruits cast into the gutter, and 0 dispute the garbage of the city with its it dogs.

Our team was cordially received and welcomed by them. In the parlor we found a very haulnomre target, made of flowers. the dimensions of which was about two and a e half feet wide by about, four and a half long. , The bulls-eye was a very dark purple dahila; this was surrounded by white tuheroses, a circle around these of SMALL I'taUBPTLE FLOWERS, all of which was surrounded by a large res- P cett madle orf different flowers. The supper was a very nice one, and there was an aibund- t anuc of every thing. In toasting our team, Hir Henry Halford said that he and his team had become attached to our team from the E first, and he hopetd that it would not be the last time that our teams would meet; he lin ished by proposing three cheers for the Cres cent City team. After dinner, which endedt abullt 10 o'clock p. m., we foundl carriages waiting for us at the door, provlde 'lby Sir Hlenry, to convey us horme, which trip was a very pleasant one.

When called s upon to speak hoe said it was well known he was not a speech maker; he had done his speaking and told his story at the target. He I- afterwards said to a crowd that "it' was not due to his shrooting, but the superiority of the s Sharps rutle," which is oht of their last tin provemlents, and had been in his hands but a short time. The average of the Sharps' rifle is yesterday was 213, against the Remington's a 20H. h On Monday we shoot the inter-State match, Y and I assure you It will take first class shoot ing to win the match.

What That City Will Have to Pay for the Late Riot. [Ohicago Times.] PITTSurn G, Pa., Sept. 11.-The Phila delpthia papers aver that the county of Allegheny will be severely and justly punished for the late riots by a tax of ten millhon dollars to settle for the losses incurred by that terrible disaster. To our sister city your correspondent would say such exultation is elightly prema ture. It is not yet settled that the coun - twill have to pay for the railroad ITses; indeed, it is believed she will have a good defense to said claims, but whether liable or not the punishment i will not be represented by the fancy figures of the Quaker City papers. Their statements are based on the mod est claims presented. For instance, the Pennsylvania Railroad Company ask for $2,500,000; the Keystone Hotel Com pany, $200,000; the Elevator Company, $250,000, and private claimants, $200,000. Under the adjustment plan of the fire marshal, the principle of which is em ployed by fire insurance companies in adjusting losses, it is believed that the final awards will not vary from these r figures: SRailroad property .....................$1,500,000 4 Freight .............................. 1,000,000 1 levator .............................. 150,000 Keystone Hotel COompany.............. 100,000 I'unIman Car Company ............ 80,000 Private claims........................ 100,000 Total .............................S2,930,0 0 The disparity between the large esti mates and actual losses arises from the fact that the former are based on the in flated values of a few years ago. In flush times, when the elevator was built, it cost $233,000. It can be replaced for $125,000. The main depot and appur a tenances cost $400,000. The whole can a be replaced for $200,000. The estimate o of the value of freight is believed to be a within $50,000 of what the invoices will ,f show. a The Allegheny Valley Railroad Com f pany had but one car burned. It was a used for hauling baggage, and they l have brought suit against the county to s recover its value, set down at $465. It I is considered that this is to be a test s case, and if decided favorably to the e claimants, it is presumed the commis sioners will pay the other claimants without further litigation. a The leading points which the county e will urge in defense of the claims are 1 that the railroad company did not ex s ercise due care and vigilance in defense of its property, and that the riot was really an insurrection beyond the power of the county to control, and the State is therefore responsible. Other points will be raised, but these are the lead ing ones on which the oases will turn. Shippere refuse to bring suit agninsoat the county, although the Pennsylvania IRilroad Uompany has offered to bear the legal expenses of the same. They prefer to hold the company primarily responsible. and thus the mutter stands at present. - ---- --r*e -- THFI OPPORTUiNITY OF TIlE TURKS. IUin'inat C0onmtercial I LONDON, Sept. 15.-To the Ottoman 6 cause every moment is now of value. No one but Ojman Pasha himself can tell how long he can hope to stand a siege. As much depends on the state of his magazines ammunitioh and sup plies, as on thu skill of his engineers or steadiness of his riflemen, out no be Ssieged army ever is relieved too soon. Mehemet All and Suleiman Pasha, if they would save to the ca",se the Islam stronghold that has stood as stubbornly as a lion in the path of the invader, should strain every nerve to hasten with " every bayonet and sabre they can com 0 mand to the banks of the Vld. That Mehemet All is beginning to move we have now some slight in i dications. He has at leant 130,000 men at command. If with these he pushes forward boldly, he should march from the Lom to the Vid in ten days, driving before him the 300,0(5) men that the Caurowitch has i stretched as a thin curtain along the e Jantra. As his left wing sweeps through Tirnova it would not only dislodge 15,000 men that are scattered alng the roads toward the passes of the Balkans, r but would out the communtloelon of the n Eighth Russian corps, which, with some subsidiary detachmeut, holds ; Schipka Pass. Thus he would open 5 that road to Sulelman Pasha, who ap 3 pears determined, with perverse obsti D nacy to decline to cross the mountains by any of the many routes which are f undefended, for his reported movement on Gabrova is now found to have been merely a reconnoisance. Suleiman and Mehemet united would bring into the plains 150,000 men. On man Pashi has in Plevna at least 50,000. K The whole armies under the command s of the OCzar in Bulgaria do not muster , now 150,000 bayonets. There is a great opportunity for the Ottoman command Sers if they can but grasp it, but the Im t pertal Guard will be at Plevna in a fort night. There is time, but none to spare. C WHAT MADE HOWARD MAD. oaherman n.ageSts that lie Give Way to a eounger Oilieer. WA54nTon n A.nt12.--It has leaked out to-day through the War Department 1 that the dispatch from Gen. Sherman to I Gen. Howard. at Helena, was short and e spicy. It is impossible to obtain the a full telegram, but the purport is vouched for as follows: "Push them to the wall, and clean them out. If you can't do it, turn the command over to 0 some younger officer." It was in an ' swer to this that Gen. Howard made re-' a ply about being misunderstood; that he never flagged ; that neither Sherman , nor McDowell could doubt his pluck and energy, etc. The army men here say that many things are excused in telegraphic correspondence which would not be permitted by letter; for instance, this curt rejoinder of Howard to his su c perior officer would not have been allowed under other circumstances. During his hunt over the plains for a i. place of safety, Howard has several times gone out of his department. So ° long as he remains inside the lines he Scan hold his official head on his shoul a' ders, for the signature of the President is required to the appointment of a de it partment commander. Sherman cannot .f remove one. In case, however, Howard got outside the limits, Sherman could at once appoint Gen. Crook or Gen. Terry to lead the forces, and Howard would have to step aside. After this warning the dangerous Howard will keep his 'e map in his pocket. I -___--cr--- AMNUJEMENT,. Academy of Musicaale.

On Sunday the much praieed "Baby" will be introduced to a New Orleans andience for the first time, and will keep the boards for a week. Good seats will doobtless be in demand, hence an early applica:ion at the box office will be neces sary to scure them. L'Aleazar Frameals.
