Londov, Dec. 19, 1878.
An official despatch from Lahore states
that General Drowne commenced his march
to Jelalabad on Tuesday, which place
he hopes to reach on the 20th inst.
A special from Jumrood, December 18, says
it has been determined to inflict rigorous
punishment upon the Zukkur-Khels,
who led the recent attacks on the
camp at Ali-Musjid. Twenty-two hun
dred men ? left Ali-Musjid yesterday
to surprise their villages, which are ten
miles distant. It is anticipated that the
example made of these natives will have
the effect of pacifying the whole frontier.
It is declared at St. Petersburg that

Britain's business troubi.es.
Messrs. Fox, Walker & Co., of the Atlas Engine
Works, Bristol, have failed. Liabilities, ?(50,000.
Messrs. Zubiua & Co., iron ore importers, of Cardiff
and Newport, have also failed, in consequence of tho
stoppage of the Tin l'late Works of Booker k Co.,
near Swansea, whose bills Zubiua k Co. held to a
large amount. This failure will considerably increase
tho liabilities of the West of England and South
Wales District Bank. The Times, in its financial ar
ticle of yesterday, said:?"The more recent
news regarding tho state of the West of England
and South Wales District Bank has unquestion
ably done mnch mischief, and strong complaint
is made that the truth was not made more clearly
known at the date of suspension. Instead of telling
the worst, as they no doubt could have done, the
directors suffered people to nurse the delusion that
the suspension was due to a pernicious run, and that
therefore the bank might easily he in some form re
suscitated. A few knew all along that the w hole paid
up capital and reserve were probably lost, hut tho
jnass of the people believed the more ideal i?resenta
tion of affairs. The result of this concealment has
been to renew and intensify the feeling of distrust
which was beginning to die away. Men say, with
justice, they can no longer believe what they arc told
by hankers, and the silliest rumors are endowed with
tenfold power for mischief. It is profoundly to be
regretted that the credit of the banking community
should be played with and shaken in this fashion.''
Reports of several district meetings of operatives on
Tuesday night in the Oldliam District are generally

(iBKAT DISTBKH* IN HI UNITED K1KUDOM.
In the House of Commons on Tuesday night, Mr.
Cross, Home Secretary, answering an inquiry
"whether it was true, an reported, that we are now
tare to face with such a crisis of distress as this gen
eration has never known," said though much distress
Unhappily prevails among the laboring poor, the de
scription of it in the question was exaggerated;
there was nothiag to cause unnecessary alurm.
He read telegrams front the head of the
Board of Supervision at Edinburgh, and
the Mayors of Liverpool and Manchester
stating that tho ordinary means of relief were at
present sufficient to meet all uecessi'/es. He had not
1 had time to inquire into the mndltion of the coal
and iron districts. At Birmingham a meeting con
vened by the Mayor was held ou Tuesday to consider
the best means to relieve the distress, which is de
clared to lie exceptionally severe and increasing daily.
The Mayor was requested to organize means for rais
ing and distributing relief. At Sheffield 11,000 children
ahd 8,0tl0 adults received aid last week. Tho
Mayor's relief fund amount* to $:mi,oou. At Stockton
the distress is increasing. Hundreds of the families
of iron workers are dest^utc, and an influential com
mittee is canvassing for subscriptions and contribu
tions. At Stoke-on-Trent great distress prevails,
which is enhanced by the severity of the cold. Tho
Distress Committee iH unable to keep pact; with the
demands. At Uurslcm a meeting was called by the
Mayor on the 17th inst. to take measures to alleviate
distress, (treat want is felt by the laboring classes
in North Staffordshire.
VIST SAI) STATE OF AFFAIBK.
At Manchester vast numbers of tho middle class
poor, who will not nppcal to charity, are suffering
keenly. A vigorous and combined effort on the part
of the authorities, churches and private organiza
tions is being put forth. A Liverpool despatch says
the working classes have not cmlurod such distress
and privation for many years. An excellent system
of relief is organizing. At Wigsu there is consid
erable distress among the better class of mechanics
End workmen. Wolverhampton advices also report
much distress throughout Houth Staffordshire, aud
relief in the sbupc of food, coals and clothing
Is being distributed. At. Edinburgh a tkpota
tion of Unemployed men waited on the magis
trates and asked for Employment. The magis
trates authorized the street inspectors to give
them work. At (ilasgow the depression aud dis
tress art; unexampled. The streets aru swarming with
Idle and starving men. women and children. Tho
Lord I'rovost aud magistrates are organizing very
thorough relief for the most needy. A Dundee de
spatch says there also is much misery in that part of
Heotland. No adequate measures for relief have brcti
organized in the northern part of tho country, where
the fishermen ami agricultural laborers are destitute.
In Aberdeen, Forfar and Dunfermline private charity
and efforts of the magistrates are actively employed.
At Bristol there are largo numbers of unemployed
people, and there Is much suffi ring. '1 here is no or
ganized relief beyond the ordinary parochial fund as
yet.
DAKKIU'PTCT IK SWEDE*.
Advices from Stockholm state that another firm
(J. Ilirsch) has failed, with :i,ono,(SH) crowns liabilities,
its difficulties having arisen through tho fall iu tho
price of iron and also from unprofitable operations
in building and land. The assets are reported to ho
sufficient, but this is considered doubtful. The firms
which have lately failed are ktlleved to have been
kept going by banks long after they should have gone
Into liquidation, A rather ls-tter feeling prevails in
Sweden now, but It is feared bank managors there
have been no wiser than in other parts of Europe and
hold too many Securities and too small proportion of
capital.

the Porte proposes to submit the differences to the

General Heap will not release Homer, the alleged
American citizen imprisoned in Constantinople, as
the Grand Vizier lias informed him that proofs exist
of his guilt. The Porte will probably demand
Homer's expulsion. The Timet' correspondent at
Pesth says:?"Tho Eastern Kounielian Commission

of the commission is due to the insufficiency of

Tho Prubyterian Weekly, edited bjr the ltev. Ueorgo
Morrison, will publish the following editorial to
morrow:?
The Presbyterian Church has a warm place in its
heart for the distinguished and noble family so conspic
uously represented on this continent by the Marquis
of Lorue, Governor General of Canada. It has msiu
the lot of but few men in history to be wedded to
a princess so noble, so pure, as the daughter of the
renowned Queen of England, the Christian
wowun and mother, but greater still is his
lot that his intrinsic merits cntitlo him
to his position. Tho father, tho Duke
of Argyll, George John Douglass Campls-U, is only
titty-six years of age, and is the author of several
works on law. He is an elder of the Presbyterian
Church, and has written two works on church
questions which are authorities, one styled,
"Presbytery Examined," and one the "Sou
of a Peer to his Peer." The Marquis of Lornc has
prepared a translation of the Psalms. The family
name is Campbell. It is said that General William
Campbell, who fell when commanding our troops
in the Revolutionary War, at Kutaw Springs,
S. ('., and exclaimed as he died, when informed
of the defeat of the enemy "I die contented," and
was born in Virginia 174.r>, was tlie nepbew of the
then Duke. Geueral William Campbell left one
daughter. who afterward married General
Francis Proston, of Virginia. She was the
mottier of Mrs. Governor James McDowell,
Mrs; Governor John B. Floyd, Mrs. Gen
eral Ed. Carriugtou, Mrs. Rev. Dr. ltols rt J. llrcckiu

Preston. A candlestick cut from the West Tennes

San Francisco, Dee. 18, 1878.
The llulletin says of the memorial to Congress
adopted by the Constitutional Convention:?"It
puts the Chinese question upon more aolid
ground than, lias yet been found, for it
lays down the broad proposition that the
Chinese immigration is more of an invasion than
anything else, which threatens tho substitution of
alien w orkers, uiiassimilable and indigestible, for the
people of our own race."

FREIGHT POOL BREAKING UP.
practical failure of the contract between
TRUNK I.1NEB AS TO RATES FROM CINCINNATI
EAST.
[UY TELEGRAPH TO THE HERALD.]
Cincinnati, Ohio, Dec. 1H, 1878.
There were rumors ou the streets to-day, which are
traceable to very reliable sources, that the freight
pool between here anil the East would tie broken
within a day or two, and the prices of freight go
tumbling again. The trouble ar;se, it seems,
about the price of freight on pork from Cincinnati
to New York. The pool rate was named
as thirty-six cents per hundred, and all the lines of
railroad running East except the Chesapeake and
Ohio agreed to it and pledged themselves to keep up
the price. The Chesapeake and Ohio has not been bid
ding for New York business for some time
past, and it was thought they would not
do so even with the other lines tied up by
their pooling arrangement. In this, however, they
were mistaken. No sooner hail the agreement been
fully completed and entered into than the Chesapeake
and Ohio determined to renew its lreight business to
New Y'ork, and, being out of the pool, llxcd rates to
Suit itself, occasionally cutting considerably, but
usually keeping as licur the others us it could to get
a share of business.
HOW THK CONTRACT WAS V.VADfcl).
About a week ago it was noticed by the agents of
the pooling lines that their freights on pork lioil
fallen off to nearly nothing, while it was observed
that the shipments of that product from Brighton
station, a way station just outside the city limits, but
nearer the stock yards than any of the freight
depots, liail grown enough to make up
the difference. Brighton station is on
the line of the Hamilton and Dayton
and the. Atlantic and Great Western railroads, and
though practically in the city is technically beyond
the poiuts arranged for iu the pool. It is said that
the Great Western wus the road to prottt mostly by
this arrangement, and that they carried pork at from
twenty-ttve to thirty cents per hundred. For their
part they say .hut the. object of this pool was practi
cally defeated by leaving Chesapeake uuil
Ohio out of it. and they had the right to
get business at way stations at auy price
they could agree upon. The freight agents
of other roads iu the pooling contract arc so cha
grined at their stupidity or oversight in omitting
Brighton station from the terms of the contract,
thut they charge the responsibility upon Chicago,
saying that they eoulil not keep uji prices so loug as
Chicago is out of the arrangement. Indeed, several
of the gcueral managers have gone up to Chicago to
day to try to bring about an arrangement of prices
with ruilroad authorities there; but after all the real
trouble about the price of freights is here, ami will
not be remedied uutil a new contract is entered into.
BANKING HOUSE FAILURE.
SUSPENSION OF THE PRINCIPAL GERMAN HOUSE
IN CINCINNATI.
[BY TELEGRAPH TO THE HERALD.]
Cincinnati, Ohio, Dec. 18, 1878.
The banking house of C. F. Adae & Co., the largest

ing to $700,000 and assets variously esti
mated from $300,000 to $350,000. The firm
has been in the banking business since 1854, and
was regarded until very lately as one of the soundest
concerns here. The business was largely a savings
hauk and dealers in foreign exchange, anil its list of
depositors numbered over one thousand ihthous, very
many of them widows. The head of the concern, C.
F. Adae, died some eight or ten years ago, but his
brother, Carl A. G. Adae. und the other partner, A.
Seiuecke, continued the business under the old tirm
name. Carl Adae was for many years German Consul
at this city, hut alxjut three years ago was removed.
He dates the decline of his business, which resulted
iu to-day's failure, from his removal from that j>o
sitiou. The firm made au assignment of their prop
erty to-night to P. H. Hartinanu anil A. A. Bennett.
They claim that they will be able to pay fifty per cent.

them back to Patrick county, which would produce a
conflict between tbo State and federal authorities.
