' The Congress reassembled yesterday morning In
the Hall Of tlie Middle Temple, under the presidency
of the Baron von Holtzeudortr, one of the
German representatives.
' transportation as a punishment.
' Count Or 1'okesta (Italy) Introduced the first
Subject?"Ought transportation to be admitted as a
punishment, and, If so, what ought to be Its nature
t" The Count approved of the Knglish view of i
jthe matter, and was of opinion that the punishment
of transportation with forced labor fa penitentiary
colonies was Just, useful and convenient
or all criminals who merited perpetual punishments
for for long periods of years.
r Mr. Q. w. Hastings expressed his belief that
.transportation would never be restored in England.
And he warned the delegates bow they entertained
Sny protect of the kind as a portion of prison discipline.
So long as transportation existed in this
country our peual discipline was neglected: but so
loon as the system was abolished from that moment
began great improvements in our convict
fod other prisons.
TiJount Vlaudlmero, General AnneukolT and Connt
BoUohub (Russia); M. Poles (Holland) , and Colonel
atatcllffe continued the debate, the latter gentleman
observing that when our convicts were sent abroad
the treatment they met with was not of a
character to Improve their habits of industry or
jyive them such instruction as would be likely to be
fat service to them after their release. The dlsctjpilne
in the prison at Cologno seemed to him to
nuerit the highest consideration.
( The discussion was "arrested" and ordered to be
reported on hereafter.
{ Oount SoixonuB (Hussion) introduced the next
/ nuestlon?"Ought the punishment of privation of
Bberty (Imprisonment in genere) to be uniform in

ibat a prison ought to be conducted as a hospital

means were not provided for removing the
taint of confinement from those who might be round
Innocent, and who ought to be indemnified for the
injury that had been done them. I'rlHoners before

' The third question, "Ought a kind of Imprisonment,
consisting only in a mere privation of liberty,
Rrithout obligation to work, aud without contact
with other kinds of prisoners, to be admitted for
special crimes not implying any great perversity ?"
jtraa Introduced by Count dk Foresta, who argued
xhat those?especially the young?who were led by
fcasslon to the commission of crime ought to be
separated from habitual criminals, and that a mere
Deprivation of liberty was almost sufficient in their
[Dr! Moet wag of opinion that a more unhappy
pystem could not be devised than that of allowing

Bow tlie Americana Abroad Celebrated
Oar National Holiday.
A number of influential American citizens, who are
at the present time residing In London, assembled
on the 4th at the Inns of Court Hotel, Holborn, to
commemorate the anniversary of the Declaration of
American Independence, in 1770. There was no
prearrangement, and consequently the attendance
was not crowded, although sufficiently representative
of the two nations. Among those present
were Judge J. A. Halderman, Colonel Taylor, of
Utah; Mr. Howard, or Iowa; Mr. Halderman, of
Itunaaa* Mr nilloninlo rtf Ponnarlranlo \fr Alf.
man, of New York; Mr. DalzelL of Indiana;
Mr. Smith, Mrs. Halderman and Mrs. Liveredge.
The programme was national and cosmopolitan.
There were toasts testifying brotherly feeling
ana affection to the Old Country and loyalty to the
Institutions of the United States, and a sentiment
of reciprocal kindliness was elicited which is decidedly
opposed to all Ideas of hostility as regards
American feeling. The president, Judge Halderman,
In an eloquent speech, spoke 01 The special
souvenirs evoked by tho recollections of the day,
congratulated the two nations upon the satisfactory
arrangement of the difficulty, observing that now
the bone or contention was out of the way, aud the
indirect claims removed, the payment of the direct
claims in money would settle the matter, and make
Great Brltuiu and America better friends than ever.
The healths of the President of the I'nlted States,
i, or the queen of England, the royal family of England,
and other toasts evincing a cordial feeling on
the part of the demonstrators of American indepcnaence
with English Institutions were proposed
and carried, and with a reciprocity of international
compliments the proceedings terminated.
About forty ladies and gentlemen visiting Edlnburg,
Scotland, dined together on the Fourth in
the Balmoral Hotel In celebration of the anniversary
of American Independence. Mr. Jonathan
Thorne, or New York, presided, and in the course
or tho evening the toast of "The Fourth of July and
American independence'' was given by Mr. Lockwood,
of Troy, who also proposed " The Scottish
Nation." Mr. Francis BennocU, of London, replied
to the latter toast. During the dinner tho pipers
of the Ninety-second Highlanders marched at intervals
round the room, and afterwards gave specimens
of scotch music and dances.
The American Club of Liverpool held their annual
dinner on the night of the glorious Fourth in cele
urttMuu ui ww wvuirauuu ui independence. Tu?
Bon. Jerolme V. 0. Smith, ex-Mavor of Boston,
presided. The sentiment of *' England and America:
May tlielr friendship never be interrupted by any circumstances
that cannot be adjusted by peaceful
arbitration," was received with hearty cheering.
Letters or apology were read from General schenci,
Lord Derby, the Bishop of Manchester, Mr. John
Bright, M. P.; Messrs. Rathbone, M. P., and 8. K.
Graves, M. P.; Professor Jevons, &c. The toast of
the "Washington Treaty" was acknowledged by
Dean llowsoo, of Chester, who had Just returned
from the United States. He expressed the confident
hope that the two great nations would hereafter
be boand by closer tics of friendship than ever
before. The Rev. Hugh Stowell Brown spoicc to the
tost of "The nation's birthday." The other toasts
wero, "The Presidential candidates, ' acknowledged
by Mr. fl. Parsons Shaw, of Manchester;

The Assistant Treasurer received twenty-one offerings
of bonds, amounting to $2,755,550, at prices
ranging from 114.39 to 114.79. The price of gold at
the time was U4.62)?. The million accepted was
obtained at 114.39 a 114.43&.
The money market was easy, although some effort
was made to restore the rate on call to 4 per cent,
especially when it was discovered that tho govern-,
ment Intended paying all national bank notes for
the bonds bought to-day. At the close, however,
the offerings were abundant again at 3 per cent.
Prime commercial paper was quoted at o a 7 per

Government bonds were about a quarter per cent
higher in currency values, but about a quarter per
cent lower in gold. Tho London quotations seem to
be unfavorably affected by the same Influences
which are noted as operating to advance gold?
viz., the increasing activity of the London money
market and the introduction 01 the new French
loan. The following were the closing prices:?

The gold market continued dull, but was strong,
the price advancing to 114%. The clique were at
one time fully credited with the purchases at the
highest point, but subsequently the Impression got
abroad that they had endeavored to make "a turn"
at that figure, while holding the market at 114%
bid. Later In the day the market was very dull,
owing to a hesitation on both sides to do anything
in view of the conflicting theories of what may be
done to-morrow In the matter of the
rate or discount, to which reference was made by
the Hxiuld yesterday, In connection with the pro- ,
bablllty of an advance therein. The topic was thus
discussed July o by the London Open Stock Ex- i
change Circular:?
There lias been a decrease of ?487,225 la tlie bnl- I
lion In the Bank of England daring the week
[?021,000 more of decrease occurred laat week], and
the proportion of reserve to liability is now forty
ger cent. Large withdrawals have been made on
crman account; and this, with the impending
French loan, helps to weigh down the market. The
directors made no alteration in tho rate of discount,
but thay may be shortly compelled to do so

becomes heavy to meet harvest requirements.
by to-day's steamers were, as announced yesterday,
about $850,000, a further sum of about
(1,880,000 going out In transitu from Mexico or
South America. The engagements for to-morrow
foot up only $750,ooo. The week's exports of specie
are therefore likely to be smaller than the gold
speculation calculated upon. The Sub-Treasury
disbursed $290,000 on account of Interest or '
1 $44,000 on account of redeemed five-twenties. To- 1
morrow the government sells one million of gold. I

Olympic Theatre?The Hew Fenfire#.
After the doparturo of Mr. Jolia Allen and hi*
broken English aruma, "Schneider," the management
of this theatre concolred the Idea of introducing
a genuine variety bill, In order not to tiro
the audience too much In this soorchlng weather.
The bill of the present wuek opened with the tlmohonored
farce "1,000 Milliner* Wanted," with Mr. 0.
II. UlDhup as the main attraction, and tills was followed
by a Chlneso Juggler and magician, who
swallowed a lot of unpalatable Htu;f, Including
nworda, with the utmost case. Then camo a boneless
parsonage, who tried to tie himself tip In A
knot, and Mr. Collins and Miss Wren danced, sang

and, despite the rain, the house was crowded.
Again last evening there was not a vacant seat,
and the enthusiasm was rully as great as on the evening
or their dtibut here. The piece was "The
Wrong Man (a the lUght Place,*' which, for Irresistible
humor and clever acting, Is unsurpassed In
their entire repertoire. The five talontcd members
of the family?Fred, Fawdon, Koslna, Victoria and
Jessie?are In this sketch, and have abundant
opportunities of displaying their characteristic

Despite tho lie;it-?-wlilcli, after all, Is only a

A cluinay adaptation of Victor Hugo's "N'otre
Dame" wan performed lust evening at this theatre.
To those who have read the great, novel it must
seem like a parody of tho original. So completely
liavo tho characters and the plot been mutilated by.
tho adaptutor that t.liey are hardly recognizable. Ia
place ol Victor Hugo's beautltul language we have
fiackneycd stajje bombast, "full of sound and fury,
signifying nothing." The tragic Interest Is lost In
the straining after claptrap, apparently for no
other object than to "bring the galleries down.'*
And the acting was In keeping with the adaptation.
The principal part, Quasimodo, the bell ringer,
was performed by Mr. Harry Seymour, whose
"make-up" was oven too extravagant for burlesque.
lie wore a carrot-colored wig or supernatural
dimensions, with tho hair, or, to speak mora
correctly, with tho long bristles standing erect
like "quills upon the fretlul porenpine." No humao
being of such deformity lias over existed*. His acting
was like his appearance, ludicrously unnatural.
By far the best Impersonation was that ot Mr. T. W.
Keene, who gave a powerful and life-like rendering
of Ulaude, the demon monk. Miss Jennie Arnott, a
talented young actress, played the part of Flour da
Lys with grhce and spirit.. Tho other performers
were either too tame or too extravagant in their
several parts. The performance was witnessed by
as large an audience as any theatrical manager can
reasonably expect In the present warm weather.
Mr. F. 8. Chanfrau, the celebrate* comedian, will

Heartrending Cms* of the Fearful
Malady?\ Woman Die* In Conrmblr*
About two months ago there appeared tn the
Herald an artlclc entitled "Metropolitan doss," In
which the attention of the authorities watt catie<l
to the superabundance of dogs In certain districts
of New York, and recommending them to discard
Berghlsm and rid the metropolis of a few thousand
of her surplus dogs, which are the efltect of the
discontinuance of tho "pound" ordinance, which
was repealed through Mr. Bcrgh. It was shown that,
since the discontinuance of that wholesome flfty
ccnts reward for unmuzzled dogH, the metropolitan
canlno population had increased several
thousand. The article was most prophetic, inasmuch
as It pointed out places in the city whern
hydrophobia would be sure to make ita appearance,
unless something were done to thin
out the dogs. Tho district mentioned Is that
running from Fifty-ninth street and l<Mh street
and the Boulevard to the llulaon. In this district
Bluce that time a boy n^mod Kelly died o!
tne feitffui malady. Another district mentioned
was tl.e netgl'-fcorhood ot 128th street, In which
about a month ago a lady named Howo, residing on
132d street and Seventh avenue, had her arm ft arfully
mangled by a mail dog. l)r. McOscnr who
attended the lady at the rime, said he did not think
sb& have the hydrophobia. but last Sunday
a'.ternoon she felt u queer sensation In one ol
I'rtr thumbs. Khe did not know what it was and
\>aid 110 attention to it until Monday, when she
fcegan to feel 111 all over. A doctor was *onl for, but
before lie r.rrlved all the horrible symptoms of
hydrophobia manifested themselves, and the poor
/ creature was in the agonies of convulsions.
> The doctor did all in IiIh p< wer to
'J relieve !.er?to cure her being Imposolblc?hut to no
/ account. Uuring th'j night she had to be si rapped
' down to a bed. Strapped to the bed, frothing at tho
month, veiling in bcr agony, and unabt.0 to eat or
d; ink, 3he remained until Wednesday morning,
about ten o'clccK, when, in mercy, Death claimod
his long-puffi riinr victim.
Besides the ca.se ol Mrs. Howe ai d tho boy of
'* Bloomlntrdale there lias been a ease tn Manhattanvllle;
aud who docs not remember the caso of tho
little girl In Hrooklyn who died tho horriblo death t
Should not heed be uken of tlicae precedents and
something be done to stop the further occurrence
of the frightful malady T If preventives, which
are better than cure, are not resorted to, It can in
I all safety be supposed that human beings are still
to be immolated at the shrine of Bcrgh and his sacerdotal
New Yobk, July 13,1'.72.
Tho writer was iu Kockavay on Thursday l.ist, and
returned by the evening train on the Southslde Hallway.
The facts?First. That tho time of the leaving oi
the ovcnlng train per oRlelal tlmo table?half-p int
eight P. M.?Is an hour too late for transient travel
(the previous trains leaving four honrs earli n :
Second, that the time of the evening train had
been postpone! hair un hour without notice; and,
TlilrO, that tho connecting train was nearly as
much later than the amended time, are not necessarily
dangerous to Uie, but they do cause the remark*
upon which railway omc.als prodlcato tlm
assertion that "passengers will growl anyway,"
and excuse tho neglect of sorUma complaints.
I wish to call attention to the fact that
on tho night In question tho train of two
passenger cum wm pushed by a heavy locomotlvo /
at the rear, for a distance of five miles from Itockaway
to the Junction, at a speed, at times, of
twenty mllos an hour, across country roads, at one
of which, at least, neither whistle nor bull was
sounded. Tho night was durfc, tho leading passenger
oar had no light ahead, and but a Siugle
faint one Inside, and thero was no bell cord loiJ
back to tUe locomotive. The train was thus run,
although thero was an unobstructed switch at
Kockaway (to my knowledge), where the locomotive
could nave taken Its proper position during
the necessary stop at that point. The least obstruction,
or a stray cow at least. would have
thrown tho unproteoted leading car troiu tho track,
when the locomotive would have crushed both cars
and their occupants. But of this, the otllcers of M?o
road run their rj-?ks, as Conductor Hat hbone did on
tno 4th Imt.; but I submit that some punishment
should be devised lor those who ttiUd uajujcessarlly
Jeopardise the lives vl others. . 0. B. K.
