The Fbekch Mail Steamship St. Laurent,

this port yesterday morning. Considering the
greater distance from Brest over a run from
Liverpool or Cork, the French service of

and useful work.
The HEALTn of the Citv.? Sinca the
streets have been cleaned by the Board of

officially that the deaths from relapsing fever
have decreased from twenty to two per week.
At this rate it is to be hoped we wilt soon have
this relapsing fever relapsing into nothing.
When it does, however, the Board must not

Tna London Economist on General
Gbant.?In anoiher place in this day's
Ubkald will bo found an article which we
reprint from the London Economist. The
article is conceived in a good spirit, as the
editorials in that journal generally aro; and
what it says regarding General Grant and bis
policy will be heartily appreciated by many of
our readers. It will be well if Great Britain
takes the advice of the Economist and settles
the Alabama claims with as little delay as
possible. The rigorous and honest policy of
the President has spared the British government
a world of trouble and not a little expense.
An opposite policy, the Economist
shows, would have cost Great Britain more
. than the Alabama claims are worth. The
latter part of tbe article, which points out the
difference between the Cabinet in Great Brilain
and the Cabinet in the United States, is well
vortb the consideration of our statesmen
A <?? binet Ci 1*1*.
It would Seoul that the excitement over tbe
Cuban question in Washington, ooupled with
the unusual fierceness of tbe discussion in the
House, will roault in a pretty general reconstruction
of the Cabinet. Attorney General
Hoar has resigned, and our despatch states
that it is probable other members will follow
him. Tbe President has stated to Senators
that he is determined to have men around
him who are acceptable to the repub?m1
in liMPinnnir ivil.h It Tho
threatening aspect of the debate yesterday
baa moat probably called for this concession
on t':e part of Mr. Hoar and this statement
on the part of the President, and, while we
uphold the soundness of the message which
has called forth such discussion, wo cannot
but commend the wisdom and promptitude
with which the - President accedes to the
popular sentimont as represented by the
The Admiiiutrnitou and the Cau of (tabu.
What do the friends of Cuba propose?
With tbe resolution presented by Mr. Banks'
committee we find this fault?from the rejection
of such a resolution by either house or by
both houses of Congresi Spain in her inhuman
conduct of the couteat in Cuba might
draw very great coznfort and encouragement,
while in the adoption of the same resolution
there would assuredly not be an equivalent
favor tor Cuba; for the resolution is far from
extravagant in the attitude it proposes for the
United Statos. It instructs the President to
declure and maintain a strict neutral!*? between
? ' -j ) 1 , ? ? ?
I fh? nmrtifts it triveg to Cuba for this Duruose
a quasi national position boforo our law by
applying to her tbe statute of 1818, and it
proposes a remonstrance to both sides against
their acts of barbarous cruelty. Thore is so
little in this to comfort any friend of Cuba
that we do not see but what the Pr nidont in
his objections to granting belligerency is so
near to the chairman of the Committee on
Foreign Affairs that the difference between
them is finally the rather insubstantial one of
tone and sentiment. Mr. Bauks is the
chivalric and generous friend of Cuba. In his
generous attitude there is, perhaps, a suspicion
of that rhetorical glory of our country?the
J spread eagle. General Grant is the President
of the United States. Wlien a man is a distinguished
member of the House he is then
also a part of the government of a free people;
but the obligations of duty do not always sit
so heavily upon him but he can afford to feel
as a free lance io a oause that touehes his
sympathies. But the Executive is not thus
free. Flights of the imagination are not for
i him, more especially whan hia ship of State
I npoiis all that can possibly be given of plain
practical attention to sail it safely. It is for
him to consider first of all the condition of the
country especially committed to his care, and
to view all that comes before him only in the
li^ht of that country's welfare.
Is there really any other difference between
the administration and the party that is heard
in the House in favor of Cuba? The vital
point of the whole subject lor us is, shall wo
i or sliall we not recognize the belligerency of
j the Cuban people? Grant 19 6p|56a(iJ
to such a recognition ami Banks is
not in furor of it. At least it must
be so held, since, with all his fume, lie
does not lay before the tlouso any definite
proposition to commit the country to such a
course. He says a great deal on the subject
of the relations of Spain and Cuba and tho
United States, some of which will doubtless be
agreeable enough to the popular fancy, and
much of which should be very painful if false
and still more painful if true. The imputation,
for instance, that a message sent to Congress
from the President of the United States is
u ?P a?
|iii-yaicu m iuc jmjr ut o;>aiu id uut ui tcu ourpassed
for malignity aad meanness by the
bitterest host iiity of the partisan. It is in the
style, indeed, of those scavengers of journalism
who in their spleen affect to believe that the
President permits the domestic circle of Mr.
Hamilton Fish to influence the national policy.
Mr. Banks, with thiB, says a groat deal in
regard to the propriety of protecting American
citizens in foreign countries, and of our utter
failure to do this, in every ey liable of which we
will agree with him. But, as we have hitherto
shown, this is a delinquency for which Congress
is mora responsible than the President.
It is one of the prices we pay for "economy."
Why, contrast our government with that
of England in this regard? When would
tuugrcso vulv law uiuuwjr i?vi uciuaa uaii
a dozen American citizens at the expense of
such an excursion as the Abyssinian war ? All
this Mr. Banks proposes ; but ho does not propose
at last as? practical good for Cuba. . Hia
resolution, at its utmost, puts Cuba on the
same 3tatus with Spain in a general declaration
of our neutrality. This might make it
impossible for Spain to buy shipa here when
she no longor needs them; and it might be
Jie'.d as a constructive recognition of a state of
war, and so of her belligerency, but it would
not yield any of the moral support which is the
most valuable thing she would get from a procUrna'tion
of recognition.
This, then, ia not very practical friendship
for Cuba, to present a measure that if
carried does her no good, and if lost does her
incalculable moral harm. And why is friendship
limited to this? Mr. B.inks no doubt is
sincere if not practical in his advocacy of the
Cuban cause; but that sincerity did not carry
him to the length of proposing that we should
assume an attitude of even unfriendliness
to a foreign Power on account of Cuba.
Tf ttrlfh Ilia inatSiwtj ftf nnSirnpoal *\KL
Ianthropy and his tenderness for filibustering
that is an inheritance of his
ancient democracy, he could propose so little,
how much leas might we expect from a government
that feels a full and honest responsibility
for the discharge of its duties to the
nation? The fact is the attitude taken by the
administration is the only one possible for an
honest, practical government; and though it
opposes boldly a popular sentiment in favor of
the name of freedom it must eventually secure
the full support of the national common senso.
We not only cannot afford war for the sake of
Cuba, but we cannot afford the very shadow of
war. nor the note of preparation. Our first
duty is to ourselves and our creditors; and to
be juet we qmuI keep the poaoe. We are
building up, aftor oUf groat struggle, with unparalleled
eneiyy and rapidity, and why shall
we stop this process? Is the chauco that we
may make Cuba what Mexico is a sufficient
motive ? Certainly not. Consider the consequences
of embroiling ourselves in the quarrels
of the Cubans?Immediate interruption of the
payment of the debt, immediate decrease in
the price of the bonds, financial confusion, a
new lease of life for all tax laws, the cessation
of the vast emigration that is pouring in
upon us. TheBe are but the more immediately
obvious of a train of evils. Let the people
only weigh all this against the mere sentiment
and rhetoric on the other side, and they will
see how clearly and practically Grant is in tho
right. Unfortunately, however, our sympathies
aro too apt to run away with our
practical ideas, aud It is highly probable that
the clear common sense of the President will
be overslaughed entirely to-day by the sentimentality
of such dashing leaders in the
House as Logan and Banks.
Allaira In Japan.
The latest news from Japan received by telegraph
from San Francisco is very interest
ing and decidedly volcanic. To commence
the intelligence, we loam that the most violent
earthquake which has occurrcd there since
1855 has just destroye d several villages. The
information is not very precise as to whero the
shocks took place, nor to the exact extent ol
tlin iniiirw hnf. from thn fact that tllG BTCat
volcano or Asamazaina, in the island of Niphon,
which for centuries has been slumbering like
a baby, has suddenly broken out in a furious
eruption, accompanied by violent earthquakes
and the total destruction of many villages, it is
possible that this is the location referred to. Volcanic
influences appear to prevail in the Chinese
and Japanese waters, seeming as though the
electric chain which began in Mexico anc
South America had formed a connection inth?
Northern Pacific. Thfi Sftplaiu pf a bark reports
that when two hundred miles from Yokohama
he observed a volcano at sea, the cratci
of which was visible above the surface of th<
pcean. The water around, as Been from th<
deck of the vessel, appeared to bo in a boiling
condition, and vast clouds of steam were issuing
from the crater. This phenomenon, taken ir
connection with the late earthquakes in California,
Mexico and t'le South American States,
shows that there is a mysterious volcanic convulsion
underlying this whole line of thi
tropical regions.
There are a few other more pleasant and
peaceful items of news from Japan indicating
social progress in that flowery region. The
Japanese government have granted permission
for the establishment of a school for the
instruction of native youths in foreign languages
and in military and naval tactics.
The troops of the government also are now
drilled after the European and American systems.
Much ot this advancement towards
civilization is due to the intercourse of
Americans and the general influence which
this country has exercised of late years
among the Oriental nations.
Unequal Taxation?A Claim for Slate Banks.
It is always unwise to impose taxes in an
unequal manner, and wherever it is done a reaction
will arise; for nothing is more true than
that the public sympathizes with any Interest
which seems to be oppressed. To one of tho
most glaring inequalities of the taxation of
capital attention is now being called in different
parts of the co.mtry. We allude to the
tax of ten per cent on State bank circulation,
while that of national banks is only taxed one
per cent. The only possible defence this action
is capable of is that as a war measure it
seemed necessary to make the whole circulating
medium of the country contribute means
to carry cn the contest; and insomuch as the
boldest statesman did not presume to deny the
rights of the States to charter their own banks,
the plan of forcing them to Contribute to the
national fluances by taxing them out of existence
was tried. Now the war is over, lot
us go back to our own institutions. The State
Banking law of New York is far better than
the National Currency act; in fact, it was its
progenitor, and the child is not equal to the
parent, being hedged around with difficulties
flia Cf'ifa 7a m ia fit.in fttmin Ti iimnnf.M*!.

to the federal capital the power over the
finances of all the commercial parts of the
country, which can far better be exerciBed at
home in each locality.
Now wo ask Congress to see that when a
tax bill relating to banks is passed that in express
words it is stated "there shall be no
greater tax levied on any of the franchises ol
any State bank than is imposed on the national
banks." T'uis is justice, this is equity
and only fair dealing.

Da. CoonKA.N and the rest of Brooklyn ssenl
to get more and more excited over the difficulty
regarding Dr. 'Carnochan's jurisdiction
as Health OfScjr of the port of New York.
They cannot get it into their head3 that Dr.
Carnochan has any authority whatever in
Brooklyn, which thay believe Dr. Cochran is
fully able engineer clear of all the possibilities
of yellow fetffir ?U<i smallpox ana
cholera without outside interference. Brooklyn
must not get too proud. She must remember
that she is a suburb?a very nice, agreeable
one, too?but still only a suburb, and Dr.
Cochran ought to have some friend tell him
that he is, as it were, only a deputy, and that
neither Dr. Carnochan nor the Quarantine
Commission nor .the Board of Health nor any
one elso that we can call to mind is subject to
his orders.
Tiie Revision of the Bible.?An attemnt
wad made in the British House of Commons on
Tuesday night to have a commission appointed
to revise the translation of the Holy Scriptures.
Mr. Gladstone, speaking for the government,
made some very suitable and sensible
remarks. According to him a revision
was of doubtful utility. Better leave such matters
in the hands of the ecclesiastical authorities.
King JameB' version does very woll. We doubt
whether an improved translation is a possibility.
At any rate another authorized version
would have its drawbacks. The inconveniences
of a new version might more than counterbalance
the advantages. For all ordinary
readers the present authorized version, with
all its imperfections, is satisfactory enough.
Those who wish to dig more deeply into the
hidden mysteries have no lack of help. Our
advice would be?let well alone.
J CJN14 16, 1870.?TRIPLE
CongMii-TIie Fmuklutf Bill, tbu C'oal c
Quratluu iml tlia Cuban Ueaoluiiona. t
A bill to regulnte the method of paying ?
ponsions was passed In (he Senate yesterday, t
A reform has been needed In this r. spect for c
some time. Heretofore tho poor pensioners r
have had to stand iu line for days at a time s
about the various pension offices, waiting their ii
turn to collect their little pittance, exposed to u
all kinds of weather, and In somo cases neces- ;j
sarily neglecting important duties elsewhere.
The bill ought to provide some remedy for
thess evils, and the proposition to pay pension- ^
era through postal money orders seems to us
a good suggestion. Tho Franking bill was
again considered, but without any flnal action.
The coal question came up in tho House,
and the bill to relievo that article from all
tariff duties and int-jrnal taxes was recommitted
to the Ways and Muuns Committee,
whence It emanated. A minority report was
submitted which relieves coal of all tariff
duties only, and as Mr. Schenck, tho chairman
of the committee, Btatod that he favored
the latter report, although bo was, away
when it was considered, it seems highly probable
that a bill in harmony with tho
latter report will ba next submitted.
Either bill will tend to relieve tho
people ot' some of the heavy burdens ,
now impoaed upon them in this matter of coal;
out me rcconiuuueu. uui is wu anuiigijr *u
' interests of tho Pennsylvania mine owners that
the benefits granted them by it almost overbalance
any benefit to the people. . The mii
nority bill, however, which simply admits all
( coal free of duty, is plain enough in its terms
i to render ineffectual tho most exaggerated
i strikes that the coal mining fraternity could
possibly get up for tho purpose of bulling the
> co&l market. One .of tho evils of absenteeism .
I was painfully excui^ifled in those report^ yn j
i the coal question. It seems t at two "
... - . .a.'mbers
> of the committee
- absent when the reports
' were agreed upon ia committee, both of
whom favored tho minority report, and
r their pivsence would have transposed the
5 position of the documents so that the
> miuority would hnve beop the majority report.
r Uendral Garfield's Currency bill was further
r debated and finally passed. The Cuban reso
i iuuoh was, or course, tlio most exciting topic.
The discussion baa been long unequalled in
poiut of iutarest. The biggest guns in the
IIou3o wero ranged against ono another?
. Bunks, Logan, Butler, Wood?in a heavy artillery
hammering, and all the lighter infantry
[ were keeping up a noisy and deadly hail of
r small shot. Finally, amid somo confusion as
i to the rulings, a tost vote was taken, which
shows a heavy majority in favor of Banks'
, resolutions, and the House adjourned until
to-day, when the subject will be renewed.
European Despatches by Mall.
Our special correspondence from Europe, to
hand by the latest mail, supplies a very interest
in^ aud useiul newa budget. Our writers date in
Berlin, Paris and Loudon. They speak of religion,
diplomacy, dress fashions, chivalry,
national debts and democracy. From Berlin we
have the complete text of the note which was
addressed by the North German government
to Cardinal Antonelli on the subject of Papal
infallibility. Minister Vou Arnim is both temperate
and respectful towards the Pontificate.
The Prussian government, indeed, acts, as i3
officially shown in the document, not only as
the friend and ally of Napoleon in bis
negotiations with Rome, but as a liberal and
enlightened ChribUan Power seeking to reconcile
man's conscience to God without restraint |
or compulsion, and anxious to perfect the 1
union of the peoples in the bonds of peace i
through charity. This Prussian State paper i
will havo a powerful effect on the Vatican, i
It may produce consequences which will be |
soon felt from the catacombs to the holy i

Paris was winding up tbe fashionable sea- j
son and preparing for the seaside with great
eclat. Our special jvriter in Paris gives i
quite an animated description of the
"turn out" of the beauty and style of the
French metropolis as it wa3 witnessed on tho
Bois de Boulogne on one of the concluding j
days. National politics were anxiously and
warmly, yet carefully debated bot'u in France i
and Great Britain. Tho tendency of the public
mind was evidently towards democracy, fraternity,
equality and a free Church. Tho i
general aspect In tbe Old World, a3 it is pre- i
' aented by our special writers, is thus hopeful
and encowaging to the cause of humanity.
Tiie Oiuentals in Massachusetts.?Now

industrious shoemaking town in Massachusetts
bearing the name of Adams?after a rather
warm welcome, to bo gure?how long will it be
bsf6lre he will be entitled to ail tho prerogatives
of American eitizenship, the elective
franchise and all ? It will be a queer state of
things in the future to see Massachusetts
fiffhtintr for Chinese citizenshin and fialifnrnia
against it. But it will be the old war of Massa- 1
chusetts and South Carolina ^yer again, Xi??

Virginia?"Old Times Coming Back
Once More."?The corps cadets of the Virginia
Military School, Lexington, will give a
grand ball to the graduating class on the
ninety-fourth anniversary of American Inde- \
pendence, Monday, July 4. It is pleasant to see
that so interesting an event is to be celebrated 1
upon so patriotic a day. We congratulate the
ancient Dominion upon "old times coming ,
back once more." In this connection we muy
state that the Washington Literary Society of J
the University of Virginia have a celebration r
on the 27th inst., as a handsomely engraved
note of invitation assures us. These are j
evidences that the right kind of reeonstruc- j
tion is taking root in Virginia, and that the
blusteringa of frothy politicians are giving t
way before a high-toned, moral, intellectual
and patriotic sentiment all over the old Com- (
mon wealth. {
The Orleans Princes in tiie Field.? e
Some short time since the remains of an f
ancient Roman amphitheatre of large dimen- t
sions were discovered in Paris. An attempt was ?
made to induce the government to buy them, t
The government, bent on carrying out its own t
plans of improvement in the city, refused. By \
able from Paris wo loam that the Princes of
be House of Orloans have coma to the rescue
,n<l have seat si* thousand francs towards f
lie purchase. If the report be true we can
inly regard this Orleaulst outburst of geueosity
as a bid for popular favor. It cannot
iicceed. PariB must be what Napoleon wishes (
t f.o ha. The resurrection of an old Roman
tnphithealre does not fit in with hi* plans.
L'lie iireenbacka Doomed?Tha Nnttoual
Bank Power Supreme.
It is cicar now, frotn the voting in the
louse of Representatives. on the national
mrrency question, that the majority of the
nembers aro in favor of increasing the na'ionai
>ank circulation, and of pushing the legal i
ondorB out of existence. This was seen when
Hr. Garfield's substitute for the Senate Cur oncy
bill was up on Tuesday, and yesterday,
vhen it was pissed by a vote of 08 y.-jas to 81
iays. This bill as it now stands authorizes
in additional issue of ninety-Ave millions of
latioual bank notes, and requires the cancelation
of forty-five millions of three per cent
;ertiflcates. Several amend n nts w tre proposed
to Mr. Garfield's bill, to isnue more le^al
Lenders and to make the entire circulation of
the country a legal tender or greenback one,
and to withdraw the national bank currency.
These wore voted against by a large majority,
which shows that the nation.il bunk Influence
[3 supreme in the House of Representatives.
It is tbe same, no doubt, in the Senate. The
next movement will be to withdraw altogether
the legal tenders, and to give the whole circulation
of the country to the ban^uur associations.
One of the most significant votes was
that on tfr propo;itioa >* u.
requiring national ^,Arilcs to retaiu and keep in
C.,m oc Treasury coin ceH'^*ies, a8 part 0f
theirresery^, (QC ^^Jreat fulling due upon the
oonds deposited as security for circulation
until the reserve required to be kept shall
consist wholly of coin and coin cer:ificates.
This proposition, which contemplated bringing
the banks to specie payments or a specie basis,
was rejected. Oi' coarse, as we have frequency
said, the rational banks do not want
and never will want to return to p. specio
basis. Why should they deairo such a vast
amount of djad 'cupital being locked up and
nnnrAfibhlrt na fh^i?a u'<Milr1 Wlf flmw t?m>a
corapolled to keep a reserve of coin or coin
certificates? Tlii3 would take aw.iy a largo
amount of the profits on their currency circulation,
and nobody go<?3 so far against his own
interests. The national banks will never find
it to their intero3t to return to spjcij payments,
and, with the vast power they have
over Congress and in the country, it will be
very difficult to force th.'tn to any measure to
which they may be opposed. With the whole
circulation of the country in their hands?some
six hundred millions or more?they will have
an annual profit of nearly forty millions in
gold. Rightly all of this belongs to the people
and should go into the Treasury. But the
banlcs have got the power and will keep it.
More than half the members of Congress,
probably, ?.re interested directly or indirectly
in the national bunk*, and these so-called
representatives of the peopte are simply legislates
for themselves.
Smnbo's Soul in Danger.
Wc have already shown by strttistic3 that the
attendance of the colored population in the
South at church had shown an alaimin?
decrease since the war. A correspondent in
Virginia, formerly a slave owner, endeavors to
explain the cause for this. Before tho war
Sambo, by the proceeds of his labor, contriItiifnri

and churches vied with each other in efforts to
save his soul?in other words, caring for his
religious and moral training. Since the war
Sambo finds that instead of paying for religious
culture in labor he has to pay for it in cash;
and that being the case he prefers to pay it to
preachers of his own color, or, as it happens
in too many instances, not to pay anything at
all. Hence it is that he is growing careless
and indifferent about religions matters, and
unless something bo soon done by his Northern
friends and sympathizers to rescue him
there is danger that he will eventually relapse
into his original condition of barbarism and vouilooi.sm.
Here is an opportunity for some of the
self-sacrificing, strong-minded schoolmarms,
and others pbilanthropically inclined in New
England, to lend a hand to s ive tho perishing
soul of poor Sambo era it sinks into darkness
and oblivion forever.
Troublk in Nortii Carolina.?Governor
Holden apprehends some trouble in North
Carolina, as wo should judge from his order
iu3t issued to each militia eeneral in the State
to raise one white regiment for immediate
active service. These regiments are to be
uniformed, paid and disciplined the same as
federal troops. The Governor appeals to the
able-bj^ied male population to respond to the
caff. lie Bays that there is some danger of
the present condition of things resulting in a
civil war unless very stern measures are resorted
to. He thinks, in fact, that the state ?f
affairs in North Carolina id more threatening
at the present moment than in June, I860.
We hope that the Governor slightly exaggerates
the situation. We regret the necessity
to adopt those hostile measures. However,
it is some satisfaction to know that the
Governor can rely upon the military resources
of the State in an emergency without applying
to the general government for assistance.
We hope that he will be able to restore law
md order by the internal strength of the old
r&r and Turpentine State, and that there will
lot be much trouble there, after all.
Tommy Hadden when he went to New Jericy
walked like a fly into the spider's parlor.
Fudge Randolph sentenced him yesterday to
on years in the State Prison for burglary.
There appears of late to be a strong coalition
>f judges in this Vicinity against the thieves,
ludgc Bedford, Judge Troy, of Brooklyn, and
ludge Randolph, of Jersey City, have all resently
signalized themselves by severe senences
of this kind. Judge Randolph, who
icntenoed Hadden, some time ago sentenced
mother famous burglar to twenty years' im>risonment.
For these good works he delerves
encouragement. It is certainly useless
or our own city judges to frighten off the
bieves if they are allowed refuge so near home
is Jersey or Brooklyn; but when they find
hemselves hunted down even in the suburbs
,hey are apt to remove permanently to a dis;ant

BilUarda at the "Drive"?Joseph Dion Again
Joseph and Cyrille Dion played a friendly game of
four-tall caroms 011 a standard table last evening at
"The Dilve" of \V. B. aud J. Asklna, corner Sixth
avenue and Fifty-third street. Many celebrities
were present. The playing began at
ten o'clock P. M. and resulted lu victory
for Joseph Dion, who won the game, maclug
600 points to bis opponents 172. Jo eyn
Dion again manifested the same skill which has been
recorded In thesa columns during Ills late t:lai
games. His largest run was 226, which was easily
accomplished by swift and uurrnstraiued playing. Ha
also made several runs above eighty. On the
cuslilon, in draw and In general play ho did excellently.
His brother's execution Indicated no special
powers beyond rapidity of counts. It is very doubtful
of this is a quality at all favorable to victory. Certainly
Cyrille Dion Is not the player lhar his brother
is, and it will require considerable practice to demonstrate
that he is a til competitor for the most
export living billiard 1st. Soiree dinlcult fancy stiota

What Became 41 tiin Kauils ileceiveil In Aid
of tbe Widows and UrpIiuHj of (lie Fira
Department V/
A statement winch reflects rather seriously on
some of the gentlemen having charge of the Widows
and Orphans' rand or the Brooklyn Fire Department
has got abroad and Is creating considerable
excitement among those who have usei
their efforts to increase the fund. At tlie annval
ball of the old Volunteer Department, held at ino
Brooklyn Academy of Music in 1869, the sum of
$2,500, it is said, wus realized; this amount the outsiders
believed was added to the fund. Such, however,
was not the case. One of the members
of the Finance Committee, Mr. Joseph
Legsrett, took charge of the money, ami
promised to hand It over to Frederick Massey, ma
Treaauier. Nearly two weeks after, when the committee
had made their returns aud settled up their
accounts, Mr. Longest was called upon tor tua
money. He said he did not have the money at liaurt,
but if they entertained aiiy l'ears in regard to it ha
would give iheui as security an insurance policy
on his life. Mr. Massey took the policy, it is s.uu,
aud after haviug possession of It for some time discovered
that the document was not worth the paper
on which It was written, the lite iusurar.ee company
be ng derunct. There are various stories circulated
In retird to the ml-appropriation of this money,
aud Ar. Leggctt is not the only one who is
held to b!ame in tlic matter. Had the fuud been
any other but that of the poor widows aud orphans
of doicased lircmeu the ieetlng of indication
would uot bo so Intense. M.iny express the hope
that the rumor now in circulation may prove to a
great extent unfounded. It is icriain that the widows
and orphans will not suffer the loss of the
money, lor several high-spirited gentlemen have signified
their conscnt to (jet up some entertainments
to replace the aniouut.
During a fl^ht last evening, bt No. 1 Whitehall
