Harris and Pete Turney, for United States senators, at the head of its columns, has the following in regard to the former in its latest issue: Isham (5. Harris possesses more of the traits of s leader than any man In Tennessee. Oulck.vtgllant, careful, discreet and wise, nothing would escape his attention, and he would always be ready with a plan and a policy. We believe the people ol West and Middle Tennessee are a unit for him, and cannot see how the Democracy of East Tennessee can object, sines his recent triumphal canvass of that section, where he had been so much misunderstood. We should retain none of the prejudice Instilled by a cruel.Internlcene war, but like Americans, having a common country and a common hope. Ignore the past, and by the election of our ablest man, "go forth to meet the dim, shadowy future without fear, and with man ly hearts," knowing that Governor Harris Is able to keep that which we will commit to his keeping, the guardianship of our liberty, against all the arts and wickedness ot the enemies ot peace and a restora tion ot internal relations Between tnc people oi ine States. While It Is a matter ot great importance as to who shall be our other senator, let us all Join In niacins Governor Harris In congress for six Tears. and when his career Is ended, the people ol Tennes see will have another bright star to flx In the con stellation ol her dead statesmen. THE REVIVAL OF COMMERCE. "h-ick him when he is down, is a saying that looks as if it had been applied, by some evil genius, to the business of the United States. We were just beginning to show signs of emerging from the "slough of despond" into which the panic of 1S73 had precipitated us, when the insurrection of the Herzegovinians awoke the distrust of Europe, and in its consequences kept down, to an ex cessively low figure, the price of our cotton at i he opening of the present season. When ike sisning of the armistice relieved the pressure, cotton bounded up like a youn; giant just loosed from a pirison; the other mercantile interests became more promising, and there was a clear opportunity for a fine winter's business to be done, together with a prospective view of an old-fashioned busy time in the spring, when the "Presidential muddle" arose to awaken distrust and doubt and to repress the arousing energies that had been cramped ever since the panic Within itself commerce had a clear course toward prosperity open before it, because confidence was reviving, capital plenty, and exhausted slocks and ivom-out domestic supplies -wanted replen' isking. Like a mighty magician, commerce stood within its own circle, ready for enter prise and achievements, but without the circle was all manner of evil demons, let slip from the leash by the wizzard known as "poll tics," and those inimical influences outside its own bounds have torn from the grasp of trade the prize ,of permanent prosperity which it -was about to secure. And now con gress has assembled, instead of regulating our currency, removing every obstruction that legislation has placed in the way of trade, and affording every new facility that wise policy can offer, the precious time must bssp2nt in dissipating the "muddle" that has proved so disappointing to our hopes of "the good time con.iiig." All this is sufficiently provoking, but we must bear the inevitable with what philoso phy we may, and judiciously make the best of the misfortune. Every one who desires a revival of business will refrain from adding flame to the fire : the more calm ness and quiet we have, the sooner every cause of agitation will be removed, and that feeling of cheerful confidence arise which is the surest support to trade, and the most re liable harbinger of good times. Fortunately, the last week has witnessed a decided im provement in the condition of tilings. The hannonious opening of the European con ference gives good grounds for expecting the preservation of peace abroad.-while at home cither because the people have become ac customed to the present chaotic condition of public affairs, or because they have ceased to dread danger from them there is a more liojieful spirit, and business is resuming its ordinary course. The New York Post said On Tuesday: "There is a growing opinion tliat political affairs will soon cease to exercise il disturbing influence on business, and that business calculations for the next half year will not be materially changed by the discus sions in regard to the Presidential contest." The eastern papers generally have held similar views to these the last few days, and, the western papers echo the same expectations. Let the politician attend to his business, and the commcrcialist to his; each will perform Ids part the better without the other's inter ference. In our own city there has been clear evidence within the last week that the pres sure of political feeling ha passed away, at least to a great extent, and the avenues ot trade have bsen better attended and trans actions more active in resequence. The principal effect that the political distrust which prevails exercises upon trade just now 5s to prevent large purchases; dealers buy as unworthy citizens vote, "early and often." The effect of this teems to be of a rather stimulating character. Persons buying twice where they usually buy once creates movement and bustle, which have an anima ting effect. They arouse business energy and give a keenness to the edge of business coin peiition. The sharp appetite for trade en gendered by the whirl and stir attending fre quent sales, aids to divert attention from political squabbles, and to center public interest in the daily business of life. Should all this lead to an early restoration of public tranquillity, good trade, and conse quently good times, are certain. Since the panic, expenditures have been kept down, and every family wants to renew it9 supplies of many necessary things. Since the panic, business men have reduced their stocks, and when orders begin to arrive their shelves will soon be emptied; to refill them will be to awaken once more the rush and hurry of good times. Since the panic, capital has sought refuge in the banks, and trade has been left panting and fainting, like a bod deprived of its just proportion of blood; when wardrobes and worn-out furniture and up holstery are renewed, capital will leave its places of refuge, and once more give vitality and energy to commerce. Since the panic, profits have been small and public cnterpriso has been crippled; as soon as the call now be ginning to be heard awakens the rivalry of competition, prices which sonic bine ago reached their lowest point will begin to bound upward. When once that move ment begins when once it is seen that a hundred articles of commercial value will be three, five, or ten per cent, higher next month than they are this every business man will want to have a share of them, and to jiaitake of the profit that flows from rising ! prices. When that Etate of things occurs, tbo proUem u sokeJ Vm gpeU of the panic is removed. The genius of trade is unfettered The good time, so ardently longed for. ha? arrived. The prosperity, so long sighed after, is secured. That vre are on the eve of this desirable consummation is evident, for vre already see moving in the commercial sphere the awakening spirit of trade. The feeling is abroad that prices havo passed their lowest point, and are now on the rebound; that any article of steady commerce bought at present rates will, in a few months, pay a large profit. The knowledge of this fact is arousing a vigor that will very soon show itself in triumphant prosperity. Only weak and unpatriotic mis management of public affairs can put a stop to the onward course ot the country and of its trade. NEW riTlLlCA'FKJXS. A Drama in Mexico is Jule Verne's next book, to be publshed by Scribner, Armstrong &Co. TnK Christmas number of the Literary Xeics is a very superior and a very interesting one. A. F. Dod A Co., o41 Main street, issue it gratuitously. From H. G. HolleivVrg. of this city, we are in receipt of Happy Again as of Old, and the Grave of Mabel Clare, both songs with chorus, by John T. Rutledge. James Millek announces for immediate publication an American edition of Letters of Elizabeth Barret Browning addressed to li. Hengist Home, with comments on cotempo raries, edited by S. 11. Townshend Mayer, about to be issued in London in two volumes. Tira December number of the Masonic Jewel is quite up to its predecessors, contain ing, as it does, a great deal of matter without which Masons would find themselves groping in the darkness of the ante-chamber, as it were. The Jewel ought to find a subscriber in every Mason in this and the adjoining States. James Russell Lowell and Mil Loni, tellow both have poems in the January number of The Atlantic, wliich will appear early this month. Mr. Longfellow's verses bear the title "The Herons of Elmwood," and their subject, by an odd coincidence, is the home of the author's fellow-poet Lowell, whose name is signed, a few pages further on, to some graceful ''Dirthday Verses." In pamphlet form we have a history of the law school of Cumberland university, com piled from Lindsay's Educational History of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. It is a very interesting contribution to the history of one of the most notable schools of law in the country, and ought to have, through its alumni scattered broadcast over the south and west, a wide dissemination. It is pub lished by the Cumberland Presbyterian Publishing-house, Nashville. We are in receipt of the half-centurv num ber of the old Western Farmer' Almanac, published by John P. Morton & Co., Louis ville, Kentucky. It is replete with original articles of substantial value to every reader, and especially so to the farmer. The article on the "Dairy," by Hon. X. A. Wiilard, is , alone worth more than the dime the book costs. The If ratern Farmers' Almanac is the oldest periodical, excepting the old Thomas Almanac, in this country, and seems to be as popular as was the famous I'oor llichard's Almanac oi England. We advise our read ers to send a dime to the publishers and get a copy. A Memoir ok Bishop Cummins. The preparation of this important work has been i assigned to Rev. Henjamin Johnson, late rec- tor of Christ church, Macon, Oeorgia. The j inbmacv of Mr. Johnson with the late pre- siding bishop and founder of the Reformed , Episcopal church will render this task "a j labor of love." lie will be assisted by the J best talent m that church. The materials for j biography are peculiarly ample and rich, cov- ! ering the long and brilliant career of lii?hop Cummins in the ministry of the Protestant j tpiscopal church, as well as the interior his tory of the movement for Reformed Episco pacy. A work of no ordinary interest to all e angelical christians may be expected. Hurd & UouonTox's December publica tions wiii embrace the first part of The Wild Floirers of America, a xuherb quarto vol ume of colored plates after drawings by Isaac Sprague, and with text by Prof, (ioodale, of Harvard university; a one-volume edition ot Sailer's Crabb lloninson's Diari (two dollars and fifty cents), thus making it a portable book at a buyablo price; a new edition of Burrongh's popular Wake Bobin, with a new chapter and additional illustrations; the promised index of the first thirty-eight vol umes of The Atlantic; nddition.d volumes in their Riverside editions of Scott and I)e Quincey, and in the illustrated library edition of Dickens; and a selection from the Beauties in the writings of Do Quincey. The Atlantic Monthly, for January, will appear on the fifteenth cf this month, a little earlier than usual, so as to be ready for i Christmas, the number is to have moreol holiday character than commonly, its book noticss being devoted to the publications for the holidays, mm one of the articles being an extravaganza by Prof. J. 15. Greenough, of Harvard, which i? designed for private the atricals. In this number also will appear the first of the Atlantic's series of new songs by American poefc, set to music by American composers. Bayard Taylor is the song-writer for January, and his words are reported as exceptionally beautiful. The music, written expressly for them, is by J. K. Paine, best known to the public through his popular , 'Centennial Hymn." We have received from Hon. D.C. Slaugh ter, of Tipton county, this State, a cojjv of his catalocrue trivini? the nsdiirree of the Spring Valley farm herd of short-horned cat tle, now herding on his farm one mile east of Covington, the present terminus of the Mem phis and Paducah railroad. Mr. Slaughter. in his announcement, says: In presenting this catalozue to the nubile. It Is with pleasure that I state ;t Is the first catalogue of recorded stock ever offered to the public by a eltlzen ol West Tennessee. Upon examination it will be round that a portion of the stock contains as fine blood as ever traced the veins of an animal. A large portion of the stock have been bred on my farm, and are, therefore acclimated to our southern country. The proprietor will alwajs tike pleasure In showing his stock to visitors. All of my young stock are sired by the descendants of the celebrated ltose of Sharon and Lady Little families. The pamphlet is well printed by Shroyor & Co., of Court street, this city. Colonel George B. Wauino, author of "A Farmer's Vacation" and other well known works, will soon betrin the publication in Scribner's Monthly of a scries of papers of special interest to those living in the country. 'rami Villages" will be the title of the first paper, in winch will be considered the advan tages oilered to tanners lrom concentration of their houses and farm buildings into villa ges, especially as a relief from the dullness and isolation of remote farmhouses, as afford ing better education for children, and as making the farmer's life more attractive to the young. Another paper will treat of the work to be done by "Village Improvement Associations'' in the matter of increased neatness and good keeping of streets, public zrounds, private places, etc., the furnishing of literary clubrooms. the planting of trees, ind like matters. Still another paper will give explicit instructions as to the mi'ans for giving a good sanitary condition to the vil lage and to the country house. These papers wdl be accompanied by maps and diagrams The series has been undertaken by Colonel Waring at the request of the conductors of tho Monthly, and is considered by them one of the most important and valuable enter prises in which the magazine has vet en gaged. I.1TERARV GOSSIP. Sheldon & Co. have published Olney's Sci ence of Arithmetic, the highest of the series. The latest African book is M. Sollelet's Ex ploration du Sahara: I'Arenir de la France en Afrique. D. Appleton A- Co. will pubUsh in a few ! days the second volume ot Martin's Life of the I'rince Consort, which has made more stir ' in England than the first volume. j Dr. Lewis II. Morgan has written a vol- i um on "Ancient Soiiety," which Henry Holt I & Co. will publish. Dr. Morgan's papers on this subject in the North American Beriew have been the subject of much la vorable com- j raent. .

Attitude of Southern Leaders. Correspondence Cincinnati Enquirer. There is a great deal of talk hero concern ing the attitude of some of tho southern mem bers on tho Presidential question. The ap prehension is becoming deeper every day that they are willing to temporize with Oovenior Hayes rather than resist against the seeming successful hope of his inauguration. It is not to be construed that n single southern Demo crat in congress believes that Hayes lias been legally elected. On the contrary, there is re markable unanimity in the belief that he has not. Tnc real point at iisue wilh them is whether the Democracy will bo able to suc cessfully induct Governor Tilden. They have been so long under the iron hand of Unint ism and his carpetbag allies that any relief from it will bo hailed with delightful satisfac tion. They, however, assert that they will back up any step taken by the Democrats of the norlh to secure the seat to wliich Gov ernor Tilden is elected, but that the initial step must be made by them. They say that i if any movement should bo made on their i part, the old crv of "Hebel" would be raised and it wonli senou'Iy jeopardize Governor Tilden's chances. XarraganHCtt and Tnrk.

Washington Special to the Philadelphia Times. Instead of indicating wherein he was mi?; juoted. he stole a march on the New York member, and prepared tho public mind, as he thought, to receive the communication of the latter. The breach of promise was the same, no more nor less, than when he told Hewitt he would do a certain thing one night and repudiated it after having slept on it. It i3 noticeable, however, that the President does not deny that he did tell Hewitt that ho would recognize the legislature of South Carolina which acquired the constitutional majority. He gets out of it now by saying that it was a "private opinion." Ho had in the meantime been bulldozed by Cameron, Sherman, Gar field and Taft. He had, too, been twitted by the New York Times. Tho amend he makes now is the source of deep humiliation to many of his party friends.

Whut Tweed's! ItnsKiice Contained. The baggage belonging to William 51. Tweed, which was detained on board the United States steamer Franklin, was returned to the prisoner yesterday, after having been thoroughly searched by the customhouse offi cials. The reason assigned for the detention and search of this baggage by what author ity is not made clear was the belief that it contained important documents affecting the rmg. These "documents" proved, on the baggage being opened, to be only sketches of places visited by Tweed and some lessons in Spanish wliich lie had prepared. No other documents being found, the baggage was re turned. No communication is now allowed between Jlr. Tweed and the reporters. Sew York World, Wednesday. rroarrews In Itnrmah. The Icing of Bunnah understands that Russia is alut to invade England; in conse quence, he is putting his new mud forts in order. He has purchased throe now Krupp field-guns, anil with these feels himself im pregnable. He has already tried some of these guns on his unsuspecting subjects, and finds that the ordnance answers all expecta tions. His majesty personally observed the oxhiliarating effects of shell and grape and canister on a village three-quarters of a mile distant from the firing-point. The villagers slopped nimbly about, to the great delight of their sovereign lord, who soon set their vil lage aflame. Rockets wore also tried with surprising effect, especially as one suddenly bust and killed a leading palace functionary who was engaged in deftly training the mis sile. His majesty, the divine owner of the white elephant, was so incensed at this that he ordered a tew shots to be fired into the shipping in Irawaddy river, which flows past his capital of 51audalay. Two native crafts were observed to sink before the whole of the vessels could cut and slip.

From the president of the New Orleans Pacific railroad wo learn that his road is being built from Alexandria to Marshall, Texas, and will be finished the coming year, and from Alexan dria to New Orleans by river with a regular line of steamers. There is assurance that the New Orleans and Mobile railroad, now built and in good running order, also to Donald sonville. Louisiana, will commence soon ex tending their road to VermiUionville, and branches will be built to the Houston railroad at Orange, and also to Alexandria. The Mor gan line will likely be ex. ended to tap those roads, which will give New Orleans three first-class transportation and competing lines to all paits of Texas within the next twelve months. The increase of business to this city by the above road is incalculable it will add millions of dollars in the imports of cotton. grain, wool, hides, live stock, bcere. sheep, etc., and also for our exports to Texas in sugar, molasses, rice, coffee, dry goods li.ud ware, produce of all kind-. et The future of New Orleans is v - promi-;ng.

As he draws inspiration from the black Iwttle each morning, Grant becomes more bloodthirsty, and howls more savagely for gore. He is eveidently spoiling for a fight. Recently, when the representatives of the people were talking about impeaching him, he snapped out the savage intimation that "they had betkr not attempt it." His bloody threat of driving the house of representatives into the Potomac was, it -eems, not sufficient ly sanguinary. It is now followed by a threat to "incarcerate that body, or a majority of it, in Fortress Monroe." Really, it is getting difficult to find in history an autocrat of suffi ciently savage and bloodthirsty propensities to render him a trite prototype of our fero cious bulldozer in the White House. Charles 1 was a saint by comparison. Henry VI 11 was a mild-mannered despot. Ilaynau, Phil lip II, and his charming cutthroat, the Duke of Alva, all combined, ami with the Dobadil lian liob lngersoil thrown in, would hardly make up in appetite and aptitude lor gore a parallel to our furious and frolicsome cut throat, Ulysses Grant.

These were actions by M'Veigh to re cover property that had boon confiscated. The court below held that M'Veigh had not had .sufficient notiee of the confiscation pro ceedings, and judgment was rendered for him. That judgment is hero affirmed, the court holding that the jurisdiction acquired by the seizure in sueii cases is not to pass upon the question of forfeiture absolutely, but to pass upon that question after oppor tunity lias been afforded to other parties in terested to appear and be heard upon the charges awihist thim. The same notification beyond that arising from seizure is essential, prescribing the time within which appear ance must be made, and not being given in these cases by the usual modes, the decree of condemnation is held to b: void.

Nothing more intensely partisan has been" said by any R 'publican politician. To have spoken of tho political situation at ail' would have lieen extreme bad taste in a judge. So careful was Chief-Justice Taney to preserve the judicial robe free from politi cal taint that he neither discussed partisan polities, nor even voted, and he regarded it a dishonor for a judge who had to decide ques- j tions affecting all citizens and the right of both parties ever to mingle in political con- tests, even in the most remote way. i The lliTcrts of ;rant"s Itullilor.iiie;.

Baba lias his troubles, however, and for flic past day or two had evidently been suffering from some derangement. "Doc," liis keeper, finally decided that it was tooth ache. An examination, showed, in fact, that one of his milk-teeth was budly decayed. "Doc," said it must come out, and speedily improvised forceps out of a pair of gas-nippers. Baba obediently opened his mouth and "Doc" laid hold of the tooth.

Yesterday evening, a little alt.r eight o'clock, a discovery of a very extraordinary eharncter was ni ele at th Tithebarn stieet railway station. Win n the parcels were be ing taken out of tho goods van of the train from Preston, wliich arrived at ten minutes p;it eight o'clock, one of the porters hoard the cry of a child proceeding apparently froni a heap of luggage, and lie drew the at tention of some of the other men to the fact. Their suspicions were, of cour-o, aroused, and a soap-liox, wliich was among the rest of the parcels, was opened. Very much to tho j astoni-hinent of the ollicials and others who gathered around, it was found to contain a fine, healthy-looking female child, apparent ly alwut a month or six weeks old. A police constable was at once "lalled in," and the little stranger who had so opportunely made its presence known was given into his charge. The constable took the child and the Ihdx to the detective office in Dale street. The as- 1 sistance of some of th" women living in the j neighborhood was obtained, and the child ; wa washed and fed. Subseqncntly it was j sent t' the workhouse; and, instead of sutl'cr . inir anv ill effect from its km" and close con finement, it is at present in the most healthy and thriving condition. The box in which it was "booked" for Liverpool is an ordinary soap-box, about twelve or fourteen inches Ion?, by six inches wide. anTT about eight or ten inches deep. - :t Louis Tlmes.l xi?i:s:itY itiiYaiiM.

The Times's Vienna dispatch explains that no formal reso lutions have yet been adopted at the prelimi nary meetings of the conference. All stipu lations for the aggrandizement of Servia and Montenegro must for the present be consid ered as simply proposals. i i ne uussian leiegrapnic agency says iruii i Russia admits the principle of military occu j pation by the troops of neutral States. The i suggestion is made by the agency that if the ! Porte should refuse to assent to the declara I tion of the powers, Eii'dand should occunr the Dardanelles and Roumania, Russia occu py Bulgaria, Austria occupy Bosnia and Her zegovina, aud Italy occupy Epirus and Thes saly. The Times's Vienna correspondent reports that Sof-Veh Pasha has assured the repre" sentttives of the towers that Turkey will un der no circumstances attack Roumania uuless first attacked by her. The correspondent of the Daily Xews at Constantinople telegraphs the programme of the demands for Bulgaria recently submitted to Lord Salisbury by prominent Bulgarians.

TSIV. TOJlIi OF AAME3IXOX. Tho I.BHt and Grentext of the Discov eries of lr. Henri St'lilieniuiin Old Homer Indorsed. New York World. Tho discoveries of archaeologists at Hercu luueum and Pompeii and in the Forum at Rome are q'iite thrown into the shade by the rivult of Dr. Henri Schliemann's labois at the .site of ancient Myceiw. Under date of November i'Sth, he telegraphs his majesty King tieorge of Greece that he has discov ered the tombs of Agamemnon, Cassandra, Eurymedon and their companions, who weie killed by the guilty Clytemnestra and .Kgisthus at the fatal banquet of which one reads in Creek history and in the I ! reek drama. Besides these monuments, which th" tradition related by Pansanias identifies with sufficient accuracy, Dr. Schliemann has dis covered, as he says, "immense arclueological treasures and numbers of articles of pure gold. The treasure alone is sufficient to fill a large museum, and the mo-t splendid in the world," all of which the di:-eovorer clfers "with intense enthusiasm" to Greece. Three reflections occur to one in reading of this splendid justification of Dr. S'chliemann's romantically persistent labors. In the first place, one is not exactly awed, but prodigious ly and profoundly impressed, by the mere fact of liis discovery. Pausanias, fur re moved as he is from our times, knew less than we know now. His relation of a tradition unverified and only credible as all disinterest ed traditions are credible, is verified by a nineteenth-century German, whoso time, for the last several years, has been spent in dig ging up ground, guided chiefly by Homer, whose existence even many learned person have doubted, and whose accurnrr manv more wise men have distrusted. 'lhemo.-t romantic story of all tho intensely romantu legends of the most romantic land of the world a storv which grew of the verse o: the Father of Epic Poetry, and was elaborated with all the power and grace and r--;lism which the three great dramatists cf Greece possessed is brought at once, and, as it were, by the turn of a spade into a mort vivid light and a more impressive ense of reality than it had been since lon liefore Pausanias lived and wrote longlicfore the two great historians of Greece wrote Greek history, long before the great trio of Greek dramatists worked what was to them tradition into the living veise which has alone preserved the legend. Agameinnou. returning from burning Troy with the choicest pri7.e, allotted only to the "king of men," Cassandra, warned by that ill-omened prophet of all ill, that he returned to speedy and treacherous destruction, putting on the semi sleeved robe and in his helplessness slain in common with the others who sat down to that dread feast, by liis wife and her para mour, was never more a personage of history and less a character of fiction than he is to-day. And the second reflection is that we owe all this and to o'her men than scholars, to all men who are cultivated to that degree which enables them to even dimly understand the value of "all this" its importance must at once be appreciated to a German enthusiast. It has been the fashion, until quite lately, on the other side of the water, in a sort, to de ny Dr. Schliemann as an euthu-iast and hi labors as harmless, but likely to prove as fruitless as the labors of an enthu-iast gen erally prove. The cultivated and cynical Saturday Bedew, if we are not mistaken, was at the pains to say as much in a very cul tivated and cynical way. But if the account which reaches us of these last discoveries lie not entirely ecstatic and exaggerated, as we see now no reason to suppose that it is, Dr. Schliemann hasqtitie eflettually quieted any of these carefully considered and politely ex pressed criticisms. It is scarcely possible that any other than a German should have done this. Dr. Teschendorf found the Sinaitic manuscript and though Dr. Schweinfurth may have Anglo-Savon rivals in his African work, and other and more Alpine ascent may have been made by Frenchmen, this amount of patience and laborious persistence. ;uid of perseverance in the fac" of unusual obstacles, is dearly Teutonic in its nature; and we might advisedly add, in the success ol its result. In the tliird place, one can but contrast Dr. Schliemann to his honor with other arclueo logical discoverers who have preceded him. He appears to be as much less of a thief than Iord Elgin as he is a greater discoverer and a more enthusiastic scholar. What the laws of ( Iroece may be in reference to such matters ...s this, we are not informed, neither under what precise conditions he has been prosecut ing his work, but the temptation to avail himself of these discoveries in other ways than.in making for himself a reputation and in doing a good and beneficent work for the education of the world, must have been great. It should not be forgotten that Dr. Schliemann writes to King George: "As I '" am laboring simply for the love of science. " I waive all claim to the treasure, and offer "it, with intense ei.thusiaoiu, entirely to "' Greece." PKTKR COOPER. The Venerable Independent Green- uaclier is lor Tilden.

Mr. Cooper It is hard to tell. Mr. Tilden seems to nave a good chance but for the effort of th" government to count him out and count in Governor Hayes. Reporter Then you believe Mr. Tilden is elect oily Mr. Cooper 1 believe he's got the votes . If you take the votes of the people he has got a large majority. Reporter But he may be deprived of the office. Mr. Cooper Well, it would be a great shame, although 1 think any thing would be 1 letter than that the people should got to fighting again and we should have another civil war. Well, sir, if the two candidates would agree and say we lioth withdraw until there is another fair election, they would both immortalize themselves immortalize them selves. Reporter Did you not take a good many votes away from Governor Tilden? Mr. Cooper No, sir; I think the votes he got from me elected him. You see, ho was associated on tho ticket with Governor Hen dricks, who is generally supposed to repre sent my views or something near them, and that's why many people voted for him. Mr. Coojier hoped that tie present issue would lie settled jieaceably, and, opening the door for the reporter, he kindly added: "Now pour oil on the troubled waters.

Denver Cot. ) .Wicj. Just one-year ago last evening George L. Fox " Id Fox" as his friends often call him, 'Ilumpty Dumpty" as the public knows him made his last public appearance in this city tnthe pantomime o "Humpty Diimp'y" at Booth's theater. It was a melancholy performance, for the great actor had ev idently little command of his limbs, and le&s of his mind. Ue stairgered about the stage, mumbled through his lines, and then pelted the audience v.lth stage properties, and then fired a volley of bread at the occupants of a private box. He was taken from the stage In tho midst of an act, Mafllt the clown took his place, and Fox was that night taken to Summerville. where he was taken to M'Clean's asy lum for the Insane. The public, with whom he was ever a prime favorite, have rarely heard his name since. Many will be glad to hear that he Is at his home In Brooklyn, and, imder the tender care of his wife, rapidly improving in health. Mons. Henri Cernuschi, of Paris, who arrived In this city on the White Star steamship Brltanic on Saturday, brings with him a European reputation as a scientist and a writer. He Is well-known nsthe author of a work entitled Jfrmnivw tie V Ectuitujc (Mechanism or tho Exchange), and others on kin dred topics. The object of his visit to this country is to examine Into the workings of tho present cur rency system, and to advocate the convocation of an International congress, at which all the leading na tions of the world shall lie represented. In orderthat a tiled standard of gold and silver money may be established. Ills Idea Is, as he expresses it. to reha bilitate silver, so that It may tie made a legal-tender, as wtil as gold. In a Used ratio. In a paper which he read before the trade and economy section of the National social science association, at their meeting In Liverpool In Octoper last, he advocated the reha Mutation of silver In this country, on the ground that for the resumption of specie payments It would be nere.ss try to give the silver dollar the same value as the gold dollar, and then accept silver at tae cus tomhouses, and be able to pay the European bond holdtrs the siti er dollars.

It Is currently stafeilln Chicago that Mr. George Armour, one of the persons appointed as Presldeii- I Hal electors In Illinois, and who voted for Mr. ; Hayes, Is not a citizen of the United States.

There k a great deal of talk here concemiiKf the atS tude of roirio of tlte southern members en the Presidential quetion. The appreheBeion is becoming deeper every day that they are will ing to temporize with Governor Hayes rather than resist against the eeemiRg successful hope cf his inauguration. It m not to he construed that a single southern Destecrat in congress believes that Hayes has been legally elected. On the contrary, there it remwia ble unanimity in the belief that he hits not. The real point at issue with them is whether his carpetbag allies that any relief from it ,11 be hailed with delightful satisfaetien. rn, i.m,..,r nsaprt that thor urill Uu-lr nr i hey, however, assert that they Toll tetuc up . any step uitieu uy ui ieiuocnus oi ine norui to secure the seat to which t'.ovemor Tiklen is elected, but that the initial step must be made by them. They say that if any move ment should lie made on their part the oW. cry of "rebel" would be raised and it would seriously jeopardize Governor Tiklen's chances. Ben Hill reflects the sentiments cf not a few of his southern colleagues) in assortine: that, if Tilden is beaten out of his election, it is much better to escape from the ills under which they now suffer by making friends with Hayes than to endure a policy of hate whieh has been the crowning feature of their suffer ings under Grant. A prominent Democrat from the south, whs does not care to be Men tioned by name, said to-night: "If we don't win the light I am not sure but what itweujik lie better "to join hands with Hayes. What is the use of our keeping up the empty shell of organization and lose control ot our own affairs ?" I have been slow to harbor tlte belief that this feeling existed. When it was first broached it had such a fishy smack that it seemed incredible, yet the apathy, the utter ances, the inipreiitin acquired by assoefetion and conversation with touthern members leads to the conclusion: First Thai Uovemor Hayes has made as surances to southern members tltat if they make no opposition to bin peaceful inaugura tion he will, so far as in his power, alio?.' the south to control its own alfairs. Second That he has consulted with south ern men by letter, and, through Halstead as prosy, communicated to them tliat under his administration the south should be relieved of the maladministration of bad men who now rule several of the southern States. Third Tliat these assurances on hk part have been communicated to the leaders of the southern Democracy, anil it has bad a tendency to create a wide-spread schism among them. They are apprehensive that northern Democrats may not be able to suc cessfully meet the conspiracy of !rant, Cam eron and Chandler, mid with thia tear before their eyes they show a ilisiiositkm ! accept the terms offend them. This is not the idle vagary of a too fecund imagination. It is too painfully a fact. It the Democrats of the north do not take some liold, firm, aggressive and determined atti tude at once, there is the danger that when they wake up the golden opportunity will have passed. Hayes has put ont a tempting bait, and the men who have lived, sis it were, in hell on earth don't pause long to inquire into the means or ways through which relief comes. The south want the local govern ment of their own. even if they jeopardize a Presidency, and they are losing faith in the nerve of the Democrats of the north. The Ilancocli.ni.vslery.
