The sum outstanding on the lirat of July was $42,129,000. against $46,390,000 on January 1st; showing a reduction of $4,261,000 since the redemption act took effect. If this form of currency be curtailed at this rate, we shall soon discover a scarcity of small change, and the secretary will find it necessary to put his new sliver coinage into circulation; a course which he promises to adopt at an early day. The Baltimore American, speaking in behalf of the commissioners to settle the aflairs of the Freedman's bank, cays that, no doubt, the commissioners are doing the best they can, but they cannot raise the price of real estate or convert worthless trash that was taken as col- lateral security for loans, Into marketa ble bonds. Theyjare encumbered with t a great deal of property, which, under the most favorable circumstances, would not bring anything like the sum for which it was mortgaged, and, if sold now, would bring only a small fraction of its value. There has been a long de lay fee the purpose of avoiding great sacrifices. Gbakt has met hia match at last. The great scholar, pcet, teacher, editor, postmaster and soldier Bam Bard is going to carry hio contest for the post office of Atlanta, Georgia, to tho United States senate. He claims that General Grant cannot remove him, and that he has not resigned; that his letter to Gen eral Grant, asking permission to retain the office until the first of July, was not a resignation at that time; that he can "stick" as well as Stanton did under Johnson, and it will require the assent of the senate, which confirmed hi nomination, to remove him. He ad mits that he is "suspended" by order of the President, but will not consent to be discharged. One of the ablest and safest of the eammercial papers of New York is the Bulletin; it is, in matters financial and commercial, as a sentinel on tho watch tower. Recently it had an article upon the market for the next crops, which it concludes with thestatement that "with a continuance of the present flattering crop prospects the world over, the Indi cations would seem to favor low prices for the year to come, and this remark does not apply to one staple, but to all." The Bulletin bases it calculations upon three things: a decrease in home con sumption, a decrease in immigration, the favorable news from Europa and the fact that no war is now being carried on in that country, to drag the producer from his farm to the field. A few days ago we announced by tel egraph that .Secretary Bristow had directed the treasurer to cause legal- tenders to the amount cf one million two hundred and ninety-two thousand four hundred and twenty dollars to be withheld from the available currency balance of the treasury, redeemed and destroyed, the same being eighty per cent. of additional circulation issued to tho banks during .the present month. - Until further resumptions are ordered, the amount of United States notes out standing to be used as a circulating me dium shall not exceed three hundred . and seventy-five millions seven hundred and seventy-one thousand five hundred and eighty dollars. If this condition of tilings does not justify the Ohio platform we do'nlt know what does. Remember- " ing the currency facilities of ante-war times, we think it does. According to the Baltimore Sun the export trade of that city has been, ' during the past six months, fully sus tained and the imports increased, not withstanding the stagnation in business which has been severely felt throughout the country, and the unusual interrup tion to commerce from the ice embargo .- . last winter. There has been an increase in the value of the imports from foreign countries for tho first five months of the present year of $1,506,493 compared with the same period in 1S74, the total value for tho live months of 1875 being 513, 857,975. The value of tho articles ex ported hence to foreign countries for the fiscal year, ended June 30, 1874, was $27,513,111, while for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1S75, statistics officially given to the twenty.fourth instant show the value to have been $37,406,321, and the exports from the twenty-fourth and including June 30, 1875, will more than make up the deficiency. The tales that are told regarding the rapid spread of the potato-bug, suggest Ji thatwehave here, says tho New York Gas Light Journal, a most excellent opportunity, cominjrup just in tho nick of time, for testing suggestions that have been made that the by-products, or nui sanceSjOf the gas-house should be applied to the behoof of the agricultural popula tion as well as all the rest of us, in reality In an inscclicidal way. This course would result in making a host of new and Interested friends for the gas interest, and would give it an actual national importance. In France, says our cotemporary, in connection with the pest that attacked and so severely crippled the vine, the great national sta ple of that country the phylloxera, also of American origin this subject has not been overlooked. During the yearlS74, very elaborate experiments were made by one of the greatest French chemists, Dumas, presumably un er government authority, upon gas-tar "Insecticides, and with great success; but Prof. Dumas has chosen instead to com mend to his compatriots, as a weapon against the phylloxera, a preparation of bisulphide of carbon, known as sulpha carbonate of potash. "Whether such a preparation which must needs be a product of special manufacture would be preferable to, even if (which we do not believe somewhat more powerful ihan the waste and now useless constitu ents of coal-tar, seems very questionable. Whether it bo so or not, let us by all means know. Let us know how our pretty Colorado lady-bug visitor, with tho yellow-striped dress, will thrive on ..naphthaline, phenol, aniline and the other coal-tar alkaloids. Who will make THE the investigation and teach our fanners how to save their potato-crops, other wise doomed lb and after 1S7G, the cen tennial year, which would then become a year of evil memory. WADD1' THOHFSOtV. Arrival or Sheriff Anderson, of Shelby County, at the Jefferson City Penitentiary In Search of the Renowned Waddy. Some Account of Waddj's Troubles How they Originated and Where they Tend Sherman's Son-In-Law After the Horse Map. Jefferson City (Mo.) State Journal, July 1st. Some little excitement prevailed in the city yesterday, growing out of ru mors in relation to the requisition of the governor of Tennessee for Waddy Thompson, one of the lessees of the pen itentiary, to answer to an indictment in Shelby county, in that State; the war rant of Governor Hardin for his delivery, and tho failure of the officer bringing the requisition, to get Mr. Thompson away. A great many stories were afloat in regard to the matter. As near as we can ascertain the facts, tho case is this: Some months ago Mr. Waddy Thomp son, as a citizen of Missouri, commenced suit In the United States court at Mem phis, in replevin, for the possession of a certain lot of horses, and other property, which he claimed as his own, or the property of another for whom bo was acting as agent. Before the writ of pos session was issued, Mr. Thompson made the usual affidavit of ownership, and ex ecuted the required bond, giving.among others, as security, one Carroll, "who swore, in answer to the inter rogatories of the officers tak ing tho bond, that ho was worth fabulous sums of money, when in fact he was not worth a cent. .But un der the writ so obtained, Mr. Thompson was proceeding to take possession ot and remove the property from the State when ho and Carroll and pothers were arrested by the State authorities on a criminal charge. An examination was had. we believe, and the parties put un der bond3 to answer at the next term of the State court The party causing the arrest alleges, androposes to prove that Thompson did not have a shadow of a claim to the property, that it was his property, and that the replevin proceed ing were deliberately .planuea to rob him of it. Of course we cannot speak of the. merits of the controversy. We give the facts as we learn them. The party who claims the property was a former partner of Thompson's. It is to compel Mr. Thompson to appear and answer this indictment that the offi cer, Mr. C. L. Anderson, sheriff of Shelby county, Tennessee, comes with THE REQUISITION. Upon presentation of the requisition the governor's warrant was promptly is sued. It was placed in the hands of Sneriff Meyer, who proceeded with alacrity to obey it, and placed Mr. Thompson in the hands of the Tennes see ollicial. But here A DIFFICULTY AF.OSE. Mr. Thompson was sick abed, and met the officers with the sworn certifi cate of a physician of the city that he has been a practicing physician here for years, that he has been attend ing Mr. Thompson for days, and that he is afllicted with disease, and it is dangerous for him to travel. Tbiswas all a blank to the officers. Mr. Thompson did not appear to them to be in tho "last stages," and they believe he was possuming, or playing oil' on them. But there he was abed, and to get him up, put his clothes on and get him into A DECENT PLIGHT for traveling presented a problem that would puzzle the presidentkof the school board. ' While they were puzzling over the question yesterday morning, and endeavoring to get him away on the noon train, the Tennessee officer was told that the governor wanted to seo him. He accordingly abandoned his "patient" and sought the governor. Ihe governor had nothing to say, had had NO PURPOSE TO INTERFERE, further than to suggest that the officer should exereUe humanity in the per formance of his duty. By this time tho train had gone, and it is probable the officer considered himself sold. He was not a little vexed, or &o appeared. In the meantime he received a dispatch from the attorney-general of Tennessee, saying, "don't fool with Waddy any longer; bring him along." If tha officer was determined before, he was resolute now, and proceeded at once to the residence of Mr. Thompson for the purpose of taking him into cus tody. Mr. Thompson was still in bed. But the officer was there to stay. While they were thus waiting, a messenger ar rived from Judge G. W. Miller, of the circuit court, in chambers, with a writ of HABEAS CORPUS, commanding the officer to appear be fore him forthwith, with the body of Waudy Tnompson, tnen ana tnere to show by what warrant he detained the said Thompson of his liberty. Waddy at once arose from hia sick couch and put on his clothes, and proceeded to tho courthouse with the officer. Judge Miller soon al'ier arrivtd. Mr. W. S. Pope appeared for tho prisoner. The State was represented by Attorney General Hockaday and Mr. J. R. Ed wards, county attorney. Tho agent of the State of Tennessee presented his re turn, showing that he held tho prisoner by virtue of tho warrant of Governor O. H. Hardin, of Missouri, issued on the re quisition of the governor of Tennessee. The warrant of the governor and the authority of the agent of the Stato of Tennessee were presented to the court. It was then submitted by the attorney general that under the terms of the thirty-fourth section of the habeas corpus act, this warrant and authority left the court without jurisdiction to ex ercise the privilege of the act. But the judge thought SOMETHING M RE WAS WANTED to show that the prisoner was not un lawfully detained. Some copies were necessary. In order that this want should be supplied the court adjourned the case till ten o'clock this morning. Something was said in the petition about there being no lawful right to de tain the prisoner becauee ho was sick, but that point was not discussed. Mr. Thompson remained with the officer from Tennessee last night. FITCH AND WADDY. New York Graphic Jefferson City, June 24. To day was of great event to tho family of General Sherman. His son-in-law, late Naval Officer Thomas W. Fitch, who married his second daughter, Minnie Sherman, Oc tober 1, 1S74, visited Jeflerson City, the State capital of Missouri, to compel an execution on the property of the bank rupt Missouri hardware company in the State penitentiary the previous day. Last night as I returned from a fete at the statehouso Mr.. Fitch said to me: "Mighty glad to see somebody I know. Yon get up at eight o'clock to morrow morning and I'll show you some fun. I have been here all day arranging to break into this penitentiary and get out some property. I have my posse and the sneriff ready, and we go in be times." Fitch is a quick-spoken young man of a roundish body, healthy and athletic, with a light black mustache and dark brown eyes, and very considerate ease and decision of character. He was an apprentice to the Neptune iron compa ny in New York in lb59, and in 18G3, a finished mechanic, he entered the navy, where he remained until six months be fore his marriage, October 1, 1874. At that time he went into the Harrison wire company's shops at St. Louis, and worked in a subordinate capacity to test the cost of the product and see if the MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL-WEDNESDAY, JULY 7, work would be profitable. This compa ny uses blooms, scrap, billet and char coal iron, and runs the wire through a rolling-mill; it is tho only wire-mill west of Cleveland. Satisfying himself that there was money in it, Mr. Fitch returned to Washington and wedded Miss Sherman at St. Aloyslus church. Ho then plunged into the wire compa ny's business.and was elected a director, and finally president. The magnificent present ot the khedive to Mrs. Fitch did not disturb hia equanimity. General Sherman grew very proud of hi dili gence, thoroughness, and practicability, and said that work of that kind was bet ter for young men than soldiering. This morning I went to tho Missouri State penitentiary with Mr. Fitch and the sherilfof the county, Meyers. Half a dozen workingmen and some wagons followed. Leaving behind us the old yellow capitol and its dome, on the bluff, and the smart new executive mansion, we kept down the principal street till we saw the whit, irregular wall of the penitentiary and the convicts in their striped dresses began to sprinkle tho road. Hundreds of these are called "trusties," and are allowed to work any where within five miles of their jail; many of the women are domestics around the town. A few guards with shotguns were lying here and there, keeping guard over the convict stone cutters who are now building an addi tion to their jail, to cost one hundred thousand dollars. This penitentiary of Missouri Is the most slovenlyinstitution I ever saw; it Is In horrible discipline. Some of the lessees ought to be in striped suits. They were at the moment guilty of grand larceny in secreting Mr. Fitch's property, intending to steal it. Pure men are Waddy Thompson, Fox, the Perrys and others. Waddy Thompson has some celebrity as a rebel cotton-broker and peniten tiary contractor. He and three or four other persons lease the Missouri peni tentiary, with all its twelve hundred convicts, for one hundred dollars a year the same as one cent, merely nominal and they not only feed and guard the prisoners, but sub-let their labor, so that within the prison a number of industrial establishments have grown up; two shoe factories, a wagon'factory, a great saddlery establishment, a foundry, a hardware company, etc. The spectacle of the fifth State in the Union thus ceas ing its functions after it has sentenced a criminal and handing him over to a set of godless slave-drivers Is not very inviting, Tne people or jenerson, anu the convicts also, detest the lessees, and they had given Mr. Fitch information how to proceed within the prison walls. Previous to this visit another forcible entry had been made. Tho warden, Seebree, standing at the great arched gate, received the sheriff, who presented his writ. "Can't let you in, sir." "Then I'll break in," said the sheriff. "Do you mean to say you'll use force, sir?" "I do." The warden then ordered the door to be opened. Fitch whispered to the gang of men : "Do not speak aloud nor excite the convicts. March in line right after the sheriff and me." Passing through the guard-room, the tumbril cage at the second wall was re volved to admit us. "File right!" said Fitch. Here the great Waddy Thompson looked on disgusted. The hardware company's shops were to tho left, but Fitch knew that the thieving lessees had hidden the goods under the coopershop Tnere wo found nunureus ot barrels ana boxes filled with hinges, bolts, valves, handles, clothes-pegs, whatever com prises hardware. Tho agent of the bankrupt company was along to check off what was among their assets. Dur ing that day Mr. Fitch recovered in articles nearly the whole of ten thou sand dollars duo his house. He showed great decision, and Bagaclty and cheer fulness withal, and we saw many phases of convict life, of which I may speak again. TO TUE TO.IIBIGBEE. From tne Tf nnessee Vnlley to Mobile Harvey by Capt. Koblnion, V. 8. Engineers. Mobile Register. The recent survev of the nronosed route to connect the waters of Mobile bay with the Tennessee river, by way of the Tombigbee ana iiear creeE, indicate the practicability of the wore at a mod erate cost. Cantain Powhatan Robinson, the officer in charge of the survey, gives the several elevations as follows: Feet. Mouth of Hear creek ..171 M. and U. K. R. brides 203 Mouth of Crippled l)eer......... 215 Low Summit, main ridge .320 Proposed water surface at Summit level293 Macfeey's creek..... - l6ii Ray Springs ... J10 Allen's mill 134 Mud creek....... 86 Fulton ferry .. . 55 The cost of the work from the mouth of Bear creek to the bridge of the Mem phis and Charleston railroad is esti mated at SGOO.000. The main work would be across the high level or ridge extending from the bridge southward as far as Mackey's creek, the main fork of the Tombigbee. This creek retains its name as far as its confluence with Brown's creek at Walker's bridge, Hero the waters take the name of Tom bigbee river. The fall from the crossing of the main ridge, between Crippled Deer creek and Spring creek down to Fulton ferry, is about 240 feet. The cost of the locks and dams from the Summit ridge down to Bay Springs would be S200.000. A dam and three locks at Bav Springs would cost S80, 000. From Bay Springs to Fulton, on the Tombigbee, there would be twelve dams and locks, costing $25,000 each, or $300,000 in all. The summary of the work is renorted as follows: Ten locks ?2C0,0r0 Hay Springs lock and dam .. M),000 Hutnnerged laud....... . 5,(J00 Twelve locks and dams..... X),0u0 Earth work HO.000 Grubbing and dealing lO.OOJ Bear Creek division . fiOO.UuO Contingent expenses SW0 000 Total 51,315,000 We see no reference to the cost of the work beyond the Summit Ridge, and as far as the railroad bridge over Bear creek. If the 1600,000 alluded to above is the es timate for tne nortnern division, ex tending from the Summit Ridge to the Tennessee, and not merely for the part lying north of the bridge, we have the whole cost of the work estimated at 1,515,000. The report of the survey has not vet been made public, xne imper fect information we have of the results of the work is from the Aberdeen Ex aminer, whose editor nan had an onnortuuitv of hastily glanc ing over the field-notes of Captain Robinson. The Examiner com ments unon the survey as follows: "Of course wo do not pretend to say that these obstacles are insurmountaDie anu in fact the able engineer in charge has proven that they may be surmounted easily by a costly system of locks and dams but we all know that a work that will involve the expenditure of at least two million of dollars is not likely to be undertaken bv the Federal government until a far greater necessity for the In vestment exists than we can at present show." We cannot except tne conciu eionsof the Examiner. A canal connect ing the waters of the Tennessee with the waters of Jttomie Day woum uo cueap at two millions of dollars. Tbe irie canal, connecting the waters of the Hudson river with the western lakes, has been dirt cheap at an original cost in 1825 of not less than $7,000,000. The Chesapeake and Ohio canal has already cost$ii,db, 000. The James river and Kanawha canal has cost $6,000,000. Even the Schuvlkill coal and navi gation canal, from Philadelphia to Mill creek, cost S13.000.COO. The canals con necting the waters of the Ohio with those of the lakes, and designed to bear the same relation toward tne lake cities which our Tombigbee canal is designed to bear to our gulf city, have cost far more than it Is possible for this project of ours to cost. The Ohio canal, from Cleveland to Portsmouth, lias cost S4, 675.000. The cost of the Wabash aad Erie canal has $6,000,000. The Miami and Erie canal cost $7,454,000. To say that a canal connecting the waters of the Tennessee with those of Mobile bay is out of the question on the score of a cost of two or three millions of dollars, is to utterly disregard the history of the great west and the unparalleled growth of the cities which are at the termini of the canal routes. MISSISSIPPI NEWS. Meridian has watermelons. Jackson has a new Hebrew syna- gogue. An Aberdeen man advertises "hUeen hundred pounds of good, sound tobacco" for fifty cents. How very cheap. Meridian Gazette: The Southern Her ald seems to be nretty hard up for news in the obituary line, as Ve notice they now chronicle the demise of uorses. Every -naner in Mississippi has just re ceived the first cotton-bloom of the sea son. We ofler a dog-fennel bouquet to the editor who has escaped me aoove named gratuitous nuisance. Oxford Falcon : We deeply sympa thize with our neighbors in the valley east of town, who suffered so much from the flood last week. We learn that most of the cotton was ruined. The JackBon Pilot is lost in the whirl pool of what it terms "the registration bungle." Tills registration is going to bungle tneKadlcal party.and men tnere may be a Pilot, but gone its craft. The Friars Point Delta has the follow ing entirely original idea: "Wo think that the sphere for which a woman's nature has been prepared, and in which It will Bhlue most is we no?ne." Albany Union : "Treasurer Hill, laid on our office table an Irish potato meas uring eight inches in length, eight inches around, and weighing one pound." Where did you lay it? Jackson Pilot: The State treasurer has paid all the warrants of 1874 which have been presented, and has money to pay the balance of 1874, not presented , and to pay to No. 33, issued January 5, 1875. J ackson Pilot : Wo learn that a colored man was lynched, Wednesday, the thirtieth ultimo, at Chunkey, Newton county, for an outrage on a little white girl. The names of the pomes were not obtained. Grenada Sentinel: "Grenada has the prettiest and sweetest girls in the State." "Has the Sentinel man tested all?" Water Valley Courier. "All" of what, you old bachelor? Let us know some thing about those girls. Aberdeen Republican: From ail parts of the county we receive the most gratifying reports of the crops since the late rains. All agree that the corn crop is out of the reach of danger, and that "cotton is booming," to use the expres sion of an enthusiastic friend. Friday last Rolla Bell and Alf Bran don, two negroes convicted of tho mur der of B. Lowensteiu, who kept a store on Yazoo river, near the head of Honey island, in 1873, were hung at Green wood yesterday at one o'clock, in the presence of a large concourse of people, about five thousand of whom were ne groes. WaterValley Central: "Wo have now been three months before the readers of the Central as its editor. During that time we have labored to make it a wel come and agreeable visitor in the social and domestic circles. How far we have succeeded.it does not become us to say." You have done good work, and deserve credit. The Republicans of the second con gressional district, including the coun ties of Bolivar, Carroll, Coahoma, De Soto, Grenada, Leflore, Marshall, Panola, Sunflower, Tallahatchie and Tunica, will hold their congressional nominating convention at Senatobia, Tate county, on Wednesday, the eigh teenth of August, 1875. Jackson Pilot: Northern packers cheat outrageously in the weight and measure of their packages of canned fruits, corn, tomatoes, pickles, fish, lob sters, oysters, etc., etc. Now, why can not this Stato produce its own, and put up in cans and bottles, its own articles of these classes ? Because they prefer a more honest class. The Albany Union tells this doleful tale: "We have received the Corinth Conservative Democrat, a Democratic paper, well rilled with newsrather local, however. The name indicates a slight variation, by placing conservative be fore Democratic. Perhaps the editors desire to kangaroo the ticket in Alcorn by having the strongest part in its tale." Water Valley Courier: Mr. George W. Simpson killed, on Hurricane creek, in this county, a large moccasin snake, in May last, that will do tp tell for a snake story. It measured four and a half feet in length, and six inches in circumference at the largest part. The head measured two inches across. It had five different colors or pides on its skin. JacksonPilot: "In looking up the his tory of laws on registration, we have found that the last enactment on the subject as published in these columns on the nineteenth of June is an unmit igated fraud upon the people, and, as -a statute, nulla oona." It is too honest for Radicals, and will be the summum bonum for Mississippi in the coming election. The following is an extract frcm a letter to the Friars Point Delta, giving an account of a negro picnic: "At the appointed hour to dine they formed a line, with the United States flag and drums in front, and marched to the ta ble in perfect order. The large girls were dressed beautifully. They had va rious amusements during recess, some swinging, others promenading." Vicksburg Herald: "A passenger train on the Vicksburg and Meridian railroad ran over an Indian the other night near Newton. It is supposed the 'red man' imbibed too freely of Hickory whisky, and while going home lay down to take a nap on the track, where ho was hurried into eternity." The idea of a man be ing."hurrled Into eternity" when ho lies down on a railroad track and goes to sleep waiting lor the train to smash him. Vicksburg Herald: We don't hear much lately of the granges of this sec tion, and hope the lodges have not been allowed to slumber for the lack of inter est and attendance. The benefits of the granges are every where visible in the sunerior tilth of the land, sociability of neighbors, growing Intelligence of the farmers, and me inauguration oi tno cash system in the country, which bids fair to soften the cry of "hard times" in the country next year. Vicksburg Herald: "To-day reminds us of tne battle of Gettysburg, in lbto There are many who cling to the belief that the concentration of troops for this conmct caned men away mat could have saved Vicksburg the following day. But the past is consigned to opin ion, history and song." That boy (the local editor) never saw Gettysburg, and as ue was never in a Dattlo, we do not see how Saturday, July 3 1, reminds him of the great conflict between the armies oi tne nortn and tbe south.
