Tiu'iwdat, August 2? 0 P. it
The stock market ha* boon on the whole buoyant to
day ; bat soon after noon there was a slight reaction
from the highest point touched at the first board. Trans
actions were well distributed over the entire list, and
some animation was tnfuscj into Ohio and Mississippi
certificate*, which hare been hitherto neglected, while
Illinois Central, Northwestern and Michigan Southern
were largely dealt in at an advance. Among the miscel
laneous shares Mariposa preferred was the most active.
The volume of business Is rapidly on the increase, owing
to an accession of orders from outside parties anxious
to take "a flyer," and professional speculators
at present sojourning in the country, who divide their
attention between Wall atreet and the beauties of uature,
to the neglect of the latter and the profit of the tele
graph companies.

advanced to 108?i, under a report that the Secretary of
the Treasury would not receiv e any more of the June or
July issues of -even-thirty note* in conversion for live
twenty bonds of 1885, thus limiting tho conversion prlvi

it m the proper policy of the Treasury to leave the price
of gold to be regulated by tbe natural laws of supply and

of official corruption, or at the best lead to general con
demnation ol a policy which no sagacious finance minis

strucllon of the taw, our nnn?nrn decided to
treat ban 1c shares precisely a s other personal property
watt treated, aod allow the debts o t tho individual to
oOVet an equal amount of bank stock, and nave such
notice to the banks. Under tbla decision of the asses
sors, aeveral affidavit* of indebtedneea were filed with
the aaaeoaora. About thla time a circular waa issued
from the office of the Comptroller of the State in Albany,
Instructing the assessors not to allow debts of the Indi
vidual to offket bank ah area, and acting under thla order,
our assessors finally decided they would not make the
deduction, as they had at flrat Intended to do, bat
inserted tho name and stock on the assessment roll
Upon this point the question waa carried to the courts of
mandamus to compel tho assessors to strike these names
from the roll. Yesterday morning Judge roster rendered
his decision in favor of allowing the offset for Indebted
ness, which has been complied with by the assessor. By
the law of last winter, after thla deduction had been
made, over three-quarters of a million dollars will be
add<-d to the city assessments of last year.

John F. IJadscott sworn, teetlBed I have known the
prisoner about two months; 1 became acquainted with
him iu a saloon at the corner of Houston and Wooster
streets; I was with a man named Smith; I can
not say if the prisoner knew Smith; he appeared
to know him and spoke to him; the three of us
left tho saloon and went to the corner of Hous
ton street; the prisoner was ia conversation with
9mith, who said to him, '"Here are $10, and buy me
some good stamp*;" the prisoner mid "I will get the
best that are out;" I asked Smith what he paid, and be
?aid twenty-flve per cent; the prisoner took the $10, and
jrent away; he returned and we walked to
Hdunon street, the prisoner delivering to Smith
the money bo had purchased? about $40 In twen
ty-flve cent currency; it was counterfeit; Smith gave
me one of the stamps; I examined them, and said they
were very poor; the prisoner told me that "Spinner
beads'' would be out in a few days; this was about the
4tb or 5th of June last; I saw tbe prisoner wain about
the 23th of Jane at the corner of Prlnoe and Greene
streets; Smith's brother was with him ; this was the man

be pon^j he said there were, twenty-flve and fifty cent
stamp*, $10 of the national, no bank stnted, $20 and
sIm) JT)0 Treasury notes; I asked for $100 compound
interest Treasury notes, but he said his party ilid not
de.i I in that ; I told hirn that. I wa? not prepared to buy
at thai time but thai I soon expected frl'-nd in thecttv
who would <i"al largely? about $2, 000 worth; I wanted
the hoy lo tell me tho name of the part v from whom he
bought, but he would not tell mo; he said all kinds of
money wis in the market then; I said I oxpocted tnv
friend soon, and that he could have an Interview wi'h
him nnd arrange for the business; I met the prisoner
agnin; he inquired for mv friend, and said he was look
ing for him: my friend did not come, and 1 returned to
Hirtrord: I saw the prisoner again on the 16th o" July,
between Sprlntt and Houston streets, or In that vicinity;
he inquired If my friend had yet arrived ; I said my
friend was here, and '?* inquired if he was ready to

rancpinents were there made with Captain Taplev, an
officer in the Secret Service Department, by whieli the

house in Houston street; and, after an Interview with
his psrtv, as he called it, brought as a sample ? $50 bill
and two $t bills, which were brought to Captain Tapley,
who purchased them from the prisoner, paving bim
$17 50 for the $50 note and forty cents each fbr t he $1
hills. In a Jew days after another meeting was arranged
between tbe parties, when Captain Tapley arrested tbe

Judge Stuart, who appeared for the prisoner, Hid be
stated yesterday publicly, and It was substantially true,
that this boy had been panned by the officers, tad in
duced and sednced by them to bujr this money. They
pretended te be eonnterfeliere Air tha purpose of ca
trapping Drta. a?d then arresting him for this crime. He
said that if that was not unlawful, it was at leaet a most
d leered iuble piece of business oa tbe pert of any great
government. He repeated that a?*r. He asked his Honor
lo look at this matter. The whole truth had not been
got from the first witness, who met Mr. Taplev at Hart
ford and made his acqualataace. Tapley recommended
him to go into the secret service of the government, and
If he should be qualified by subtle chcanery and dance,
be might possibly get aa appointment in the Secret Ser
vice Department, make the acquaintance of detectives
aad entrap them. What did be dot He made the ac
quaintance or two fellowa named Smith ? more arrant
counter, el tors than the prtaoaer? one of them ia the
Mate Prison in New Jersey. They propose to introduce
the witness as a common counterfeiter to a third party,
and la doing so th<-y accidentally meet this hoy. Every
thing the witness mid he pretends hss been said by the
boy, and that all the propositions about counterfeit
money came from the hoy . The object or the witness
was to get somebody to entrap. This pretended officer
did make the advances to the prisoner, and did induce
and seduce him to commit this offence. This man
was not only a party to inducing tbe bov to com
mit the crime, bat without him the crime
could not have been perpetrated. Without the
government scent, or officer, this relony would
not have been committed. It waa remarkable that out
of this community of counterfeiters they did not
arrest somebody else. If they sought to get st
the manufacturer, in place of giving the, boy money to
buy counterfeits, could Uiey not have got lilm by follow
ing tb? bov f They never made the slightest effort to
street the princlpsl or ascertain his whereabouta, but In
tbe distance ibey watched this poor foci of a lad to get
this counterfeit money for them and give him good
monev for It. When the day came that a great govern
ment. through Its high official, would do those things ?
when they buy bad men and Induoe men In want of the
means of life to go into this iaferaai stool pigeon sys
tem. seeking out men and inducing them to commit
crime? hs ssid that whea a grent government accom
plished that, and had men in Its employment pretending
to he counterfeiters, arresting a poor lad who waa led
away from the patba of virtue by bed women and had
men. and made their victim, as he had been by baying
this money for this particular purpose. It was a lorry
day for the administration of JuHtice^and for the interest
of the community It was not oily a sorry day tor

ment thsl employed them to do them Tbe officers in.
veigled this p<- or boy Into this crime. The boy had no
counterfeit money himself, nor did be paes aay. He
waa accused of selling it lo those pretended officers,
who were s psrty to Its sale, and who helped and
induced him to ca ry that ale on lor the purpose of
criminating him and then bringing him within tbe op- ra
tion of the criminal law and its punlatiment. These
were the things he complained of. He did not aay there
?ras no crime committed la one sense, but If rrimo*
were to be got up in that way by pretended counterfeit
ers, fbr tbe purpose of turning rooad on their victim*
and having them punched on the unsupported testi
mony of a common informer, It was the most infernal
and devilish tyaiem that could be anywhere established.

Like Mrs. Salrey Gamp, of CUirxlewltlan memory, I
am bl eased with a certain invisible friend whoes opinions
on the met -little questions of life form the major por
tion of my mental pabulum. The evening before my
departure for the "Queen of Watering Plaoaa," ^word
ing to our habit oo such Important occasions, this con
fidential adviser and myself held a consultation, at which
U was decided that the proper way to reach Saratoga was
most decidedly by the river route. The ^
course, superb, said my friend,

floating palaces. I believe that my quoUUoni* accu

Let not any worthy ctttsen delude himself with the Idea
that the original price lor the trip paid at the captain s
office U anything like the sum total for the (
voyage. First, tbore Is a stateroom, which ladies
will find absolutely necessary, that must be procured by
an additional payment. Then the itinerant musicians
are supported at the expense of the paR*ngen?; and
Anally, to avoid total inanition, the meals are obtained
at the cost of another draft on the exchequer, and con- j
gld?rable perquisites to the waiters. To call the proc?a*
of frantic deglutition which passengers undergo a dinner
is insulting to that ancient and respectable repast. After
a long trial of the patient element of human nature, o
plate of stained water, with flour plummet. floating on
the surface, is placed before "the feeders," as the
steward rails his patrons. The most attractive features
of the prandial programme, to an American audieucc
fish and chicken? are complacently reported to bo non e t,
and after testing the philosophical principle of durability
on your tooth, in contact with a piece of ironical roast
boor, you are driven to the last resort of the dinner-his
do-wort. Pick out daintily the golden orange, raise your

do without the article or come to the office. The reply
hears the stump ot iashionable boartl.seneas. To tell aa
