A conn Esrox dent at ShipVa pass says the Uunaians have made a fin? road up the pass for the passaga of a large army into Kou tnalu. New briJgt and other improvement on tbe road are still being made. It is exceedingly probable that Scrvia will at once declare war and Like tbe field. Ev erything ia rcaJy, and ll are waiting for in struction fiom the Grand Duke Nicholas as to where the Servian forces will first strike. Th k London Timet, in a leader, urges very strongly that Knghind should oiler mediation, with the concurrence of the other neutral powers. O.Ters of mediation could be baed, it says, on the recommendations made by the Constantinople conference. Heimf Tasiia and AbJul Kcrim Iifl'i;a, with the ex-coiumandanU of Scutari, Sis tova and Shipka, and ten other officer, have been banished t Lcmnoa until the termina tion of hottilitie?, the commussion appointed to try thoiu being at present engaged other duties connected with the war. in A Rerun dispatch states that according to Bcmi-oSiiuial advices Austria and Germany have declared that they do not deem the present stato of affairs one to induce them to oifer their mediation to either of the bellig erents, yet they would support vigorously an otfer of mod'ation from any other power. Tiik annual reports of the heads of the several department and bureaus of the gov ernment will not be prepared for submission to congress at its session ia October, but will take the ordinary course and go in with the annual message of the President at the com mencement of the regular session in Decem ber. I s a letter to the Newark (N. J.) Advertiser, yesterday. Justice Bradley, of the supreme court, denies the charges of the New York Sum throughout. He says ho did not read or express his opinion. There was no dis cussion or call'. Ha decided the electoral vote honestly, and friie from political or other extraneous considerations. Now what has the rest of the commission to say ? Thr trial of Wells and Anderson, of tho Louisiana returning-board, will be called thia month. Both left Washington List week full of cjnfidence that they would never be convicted. They were not so hopeful that they would be ai quitted by a jury, but it would be fouud impossible, they believe, to secure any verdict. The President and Sec retary Sherman are understood to share this confidence. It appears that Mr. Wickliffe is right. Oman Pasha is no other than Crawford, late of Hawkins county. East Tennessee, pt otjee of Andy Johnson, expelled pupil from West Point, fugitive from justice for robbery, plun derer of Bagdad, Mexico, and ex-speculator on Wall street. General Reynolds, with whom he served during the civil war, knows him well, and is in correspondence with him. Strange it is, but true. Tiik following-named gentlemen were yes terday elected an executive committee by the Library convention, now in cession at New York: Justin Winsor, of Harvard college; A. R. Spofford, librarian of congress; W. F. Toole, of Chicago: W. A. Holmes, of New York, and Molvin Deveney, of Boston. These gentlemen are also delegates to the Librari ans' convention in London, and can select others to accompany them. The delegates will sail on the steamer Sidonia, Saturday Scons one for the Democratic party on the Pacific coast. A telegram received yesterday informs ns that the election in San Fiancisco paused off quietly. About thirty-two thou sand votes were polled in the city. The main contest was between the tax-payers and Dem ocrats, with a number of small outside organ izations. Tickets were very much scratched. and the counting will probably occupy several dav. The impression last niirht was that tho Deruocra's have carried the mojo-ity of their ticket. Uric itav Yoi'st.'h estate is valued at from six million to seven million dollars, though it will take some time to settle it up and ascer tain precisely what it h worth. In hU reply to Ann Eliza's suit for divorce, ha swore that his monthly incomo would not exceed sic thousand dollars. He had already distributed a considerable aiuouut of property among his children, and, m he was very punctilious in regard to his attain, it is probable that his will has been drawn lo preclude, if possible, nny legal complications. Thk Washington correspondent of the New York World 6tates that the appointment for the vacancy on the supreme bench will, it ia understood, be made this month, in order that the new associate-justice may take his seat upon the bench at the October term of the court. The members of the court would prefer the promotion of Judge Drummond, of the United States circuit court, who resides in the circuit from which Judge Daris retired to go to the senate. The President, however, is desirous of appointing a southern man, and Judge Hunt, of Ixmuiana, and Ex-Secretary llrintow, of Kentucky, are believed to be most prominent in hi mind. A cohbespoxdext of the Cincinnati En quirer at Washington writes that the Louis iana returning board have virtually the con trol of the New Orleans customhouse. King, the collector, is a mere figure-head, while Anderson, the special deputy with power, is the collector. Wells commands next the sur veyorship of the port, and has a couple of sons in his employ drawing government pay. But, although it is a violation of civil service reform orders, Sherman dare not ob ject, or he would have done so long ago, as the fact has been reported to him. Kenner is the real naval officer, while Lewis holds the commission. That fixes three of tbe four returners, and all Sherman has got to do now ia to fix Cassnave, whose fidelity to Sher man and Hayes has nearly made him a bank rupt. He, too, will leave for Washington in a day or two. LONDON, September 5.

The New K tile of the Cotton Exchange, which (to Into Effect To-Day. Ofilclal Announcement bj the President of the Appointment of Special Supervisors. Supplementing our mammoth annual state ment oi September 1st, in which the material progress f our general business interests was duly set forth, we have this morning the satisfaction of presenting to the readers of the ArPE.it, the official announcement of President IVttit, of the cotton exchange, that th" rules and regulations adopted by that body in May last for the thorough protection of cotton while in the city, and in transit, will go into effect to-dav. It will be matter of congratulation with all interested in the cot ton trade of Memphis that thu services of three such valuable men aa Messrs. Moshy, Powell and Smith have been secured for the delicate and responsible position of supervi sors, and the members of the exchange, espe cially, wdl no doubt feel that this wue ac tion Of tne president and board ot di rectors will go far toward insuring the harmonious working ot the supervisory system in our market. This action on the Eart of the cotton exchange has an especial earing upon cotton, and marks emphatical- cally a new era in the history of our cotton trade. It is a vigorous step in the direction of reform in the method of doing business in cotton a step which, thou eh perhaps as little needed here as in any market ot the country, was nevertheless requisite should be taken in order that Memphis might keep pace with her rivals in the enforcement of every safe guard for the protection of cotton in ware house, on levee, at depots or presses, or while in process of receipt or delivery. Other mar kets, where supervision has been enforced for a year or two past, have used tbe. fact to the detriment of Memphis. This peculiar ad vantage cannot bo longer claimed bv them. for the Memphis market to-day, by the ac tion of the exchange, assumes a position of equality with any market of the country in the point ot protxxition ot the interest ot fchippers and buyers. While as regards price, the records of the past year show conclusive ly that planters and merchants have realized more clear money tor cotton shipped to this market than to any other notations having been uniformly sustained at the highest point, while incidental charges have been in variably less. ihe announcement ot President Pettit is as follows: PRESIDENT rETTIT 8 CIRCULAR. Memphis, September 5, 1877. Notice is hereby given that the rules and regulations adopted by this exchange, May 26, 1877, for the supervision and protection of cotton, will take place from and after this date. 1 he appointment of Charles W. Mos by, Benjamin Powell and Charles T. Smith as special supervisors having been approved by the board of directors, they will call upon warehousemen, weighers and receivers to come forward without delay, comply with the rules, and receive their license, etc. In presenting the above-named appointees to the members of the cotton exchange, the president and board of directors feel assured that in them the trade will recognize men of strict integrity, undoubted ability and sound judgment, and that they will, by a faithful discharge of the delicate duties devolved upon them, insure the success of this grand movement on the part of our exchange for the protection and preservation of our cotton trade. To this end I ask the co-operation of each and every member of the exchange, fet ling a-Bured that a fair test will demon strate its utility. . J. T. PETTIT, President. IH7LE8 AND ORDINANCE.

The Advance of Lame-Deer's Party has Already Come In, and Every thins; la Quiet at the Aa-endes. Chicago, September 5. The following of ficial documents were received at military headquarters to-day: Cheyenne, September 5, 1877, To Lieutenant-General Sheridan: Your dispatch of to-day received. Crazy- Horse was at the bottom of the whole trouble at both agencies, and yesterday his band was dismembered by the soldiers and our Indians, mostly by the latter. The members of his band are being distributed among the other bands. Crazy-Horse is now a prisoner, and I have ordered Bradley to send him off where he will be out of harm's way. You can rest assured that everything at the agencies is perfectly quiet, and will remain so. The ad vance of Lame-Deer '8 party has already come in, and the balance will be in in four or five days, with the exception of five lodges that went to hunt up Sitting-Bull. I have given the necessary orders about dis arming them as they come in. This is the end of all troubles, as far as all the Sioux are concerned outside of Sitting-Bull. I take one hundred carbines with me from Green river for the Snakes, or will get them off the next day after my arrival, or the same day, if possible. If possible, 1 will push Merritt up that way, so as to strengthen Hart's party. Give me all the information you get in regard to ths Nez Perces as quick as possible. The successful breaking up of Crazy-Horse's band haa removed a heavy weight off my mind, and I leave here feeling perfectly easy. GEORGK CROOK, Brigadier -General Commanding. The companies of the Third cavalry and about three hundred and fifty friendly Indians were sent out yesterday morn ing to disarm Crazy-Horse's band. The village broke up very early in the morning, and were stampeding when our forces reached the ground. About seven miles out about forty lodgea were captured, and more were captured last night. Friendly Indiana are after the balance, and will capture them, I think, as they went toward Spotted-Tail. Crazy-Horse escaped alone and went to Spotted-Tail. He was arrested there last night, and is now a prisoner. Seventy-five people of Lame-Deer's band surrendered at Camp Sheridan yesterday. They state that the rett of the band, numbering over hve hundred. under Fast-Bull, will be in in four or five day8. BRADLEY. The Slttlnsr-Bull Commission. . Washington, September 5. There was a conference at the war department to day, participated in by Secretaries M'Crary, Evarts and Schurz, General Lawrence, and Colonel Corbin, secretary of the Sitting-Bull commis sion. when it was decided that the commis sioners should meet at St. Paul on the twelfth instant. General Lawrence and Colonel Cor bin leave to-morrow for that city with in structions prepared for the conduct of the commissioners. ANOTHER Frontier Dlffienlty Escape of Mexican jtevoiutioniscs from tower I'au fornia Steps Taken to Pro tect oar Citizens. San Francisco. September 5. A San Diego press dispatch states that the acretary of Lafrontera, Lower California, and Pedro Badillos. who only a few hours ago es caped to this side of the line by hard riding, reports the whole frontier in a state of revolu tion. A nartv of fifty mounted men, armed to tho teeth, rode to Badillo's ranch, where the secretary was staying. An Indian bo; cave the alarm, and they barely escape with their lives, coming direct to San Diego, The effect of this is feared as to the Elliott boys, who have not as yet been delivered across the line, but were expected to be on their way about this time. District-Attorney Wildv was still at can ftatael nay belore yes terday, hoping soon to start home with the boys. The cause of this outbreak is assigned to the intelligence lately received in Lafron tera, that Villagerara, the expelled governor of tbe municipal district, had abtained re cognition from the supreme government of the republic, and had started from Mazatlan with two hundred federal troops to land on the Lower t-alitornio cost and reinstate him self in power. The uprising is believed to be for the purpose of organizing. Badillo and the secretary being staunch adherents of Villagerara, wore marked for immediate seizure, and probably would have been shot without delay, if captured. DeputyrSheriff uusnyhead has made up a party, and is rid' ing to the border to prevent, if possible, any harm to our citizens. Mothers will grow weary and sigh over the responsibility that baby places upon them, but they have the high privilege of shaping a character for usefulness. The ex ercise of patience and the preservation of baby 8 health by the proper use of Dr. Bull'i baby syrup will give them great present com fort and prospective happiness. 25 cents per uotue. New York, September 5: The Harlem bank suspended operations to-day and went into voluntary liquidation. 1 ma action was decided upon at a meeting of the stockhold era. It was also resolved to pay off the de positors in the fall. Business was therefore stopped, and further deposits refused. The bank suffered losses in the panic of 1873, and it- business has not improved since, which is I the cause oi the suspension. THE PENNSYLVANIA Republicans. In a Left-Handed Sort of Way, Indorse Hayes and Sneaklngly Defend the Eliza PInkston Eight of the Electoral Commission. Opposition to Any More Land Grants and Ke-Ines or Patents The Money Issue John Sherman's Syndi cate Policy Won't Do. Harkikbukg, September 5. The Repub lican State convention assembled in the hall of the house of representatives at noon to day, and was called to order by A. W. Nor ris, secretary of the State committee. The roll of delegates was called, and after one or two substitutions, A. M. Brown, of Alleghe ny, was chosen temporary chairman. A committee on credentials was appointed, and a recess was then taken. QUpon reassembling, Wm. H. Armstrong was chosen permanent chairman. The fol lowing waa offered and referred to the com mittee on rfo"oa t Kesolved, That we heartily indorse the hon est and earnest efforts of President Hayes, lai the face of numerous and serious obstacles, to reform our civil service, and to restore our whole nation to a condition of harmony, fra ternity and prosperity, and while we may in dividually, in some instances, differ in opinion with him aa to the feasibility of the method employed in the main details of its execu tion, yet we have implicit and abiding confi dence in his sincerity, capacity and patriot ism, and pledge to him a constant and active svmoathv and support in all the measures conaucingto the rapid furtherance and speedy accomplishment ot these highly-important and much-desired objects. The second resolution is as follows: Resolved, The electoral commission having been created at the urgent solicitation of the Democratic party, and alter the ott-repeated declarations of its leaders in both houses of congress that no faction could cavil at its de cisions, we witness with profound astonish ment the assaults of that party upon the august tribunal of its own creation because its decisions disappointed their expectations of official patronage, which assaults, so far as they seek to impair the confidence of the people in the just title of the President to his hiarh office, are equally childish and foolish, but may become extremely mischievous in as sisting to diminish the popular respect for the decisions of the lawful tribunals. The committee on resolutions reported the following, which were adopted: Resolved, That while we recognize and re spect the difference of opinion exisving among ua as to the course pursued by President Hayes toward the south, we are heartily in accord in honoring the patriotic motives which havo guided him and in hoping that the results of this policy will be peace and good will and a complete recognition of the equal rights ot all men in every section of the country; and to the efforts of his admin istration to carry into effect the principles of the platform upon which he was elected we pledge our hearty and cordial support. The next resolution arraigns the Demo cratic party for its abuse ot the electoral com mission. The third resolution calls upon the Repub lican members of the State and National legislatures to assist in the return of the prosperity of the country by adopting such measures as will conduce to that end. The fourth and fifth resolutions oppose any grant of more than one hundred and sixty acres of land to any one person, and oppose re-issues of patents by act of congress. Sixth That the long and successful exist ence under the laws of congress of the double coin standard warrants us in demanding an early repeal of the legislation which demor alized silver and established an almost ex clusive gold standard; and we therefore favor a return to the free use and unrestricted coin age of the dollar of 1798 and its restoration to the position it held as a legal-tender dur ing eighty years of our national existence, thus preserving the equality of the commer cial value of the silver dollar with the gold dollar and keeping both in circulation. The seventh resolution indorses the admin istration of Governor Hartranft. Eisrhth We are in favor of law.and against lawlessness and anarchy, with all their attend ant horrors and crimes: equal riarht3; in making laws, impose equal duties in obeying them when made. And we tender our hearty thanks to Governor Hartranft, and the offi cers and soldiers of his command, for the prompt and, we hope, effectual suppression of the lawless disturbances which recently occurred in this State. Ninth That while we hold m equal re- pect the rights of capital to control its in vestments and of labor to determine the value of its services, we deprecate any asser tion by violence of the rights of either; and we assert it as the duty of all citizens to hold their respective rights within the just limita tions of law, and that any attempt to coerce others by unlawful means should be promptly repressed by such lawful authority as the exi gency demands. Ihe remaining resolutions, except the eleventh, which favors a protective tariff, re late entirely to State affairs. the following is the ticket nominated: Supreme judge, J. P. Sterrett (by acclama tion); State treasurer, William B. Hart (by acclamation); auditor-general, J. A. M. Pass more. Adjourned. THE SOCIAL SCIENCE Association In Session at Saratoza-- Openlne Paper by David A. Wells on the "Bel at ions of Economical Laws to Pub lic and Private Morality "A Study for the Times. Saratoga, September 5. David A.Wood. president of the American social science asso ciation, opened the session here this evening witn an aaaress on "ine relation ot economic laws to public and private morality." He eaid for eighteen centuries controversies on this subject had been on abstract reasonin&rs. not going to experience. Taking up the early social condition of Europe, he said it was con trolled by a spirit of antagonism between man and man, nation and nation false economic laws that what one man gained, others lost; so each state sought to impose tolhi and re strictions, not only on trade between nations, but also ol cities, derived from imports on trade, and each trade and occupation was fenced in by unions and guilds, secrets and mysteries; no one could be allowed to follow a trade, except he was a frteman of the town or city. He stigmatized as infernal the sys tem by which freemen in trades surrounded themselves. He read the edict of Turgot, the great French minister, against guilds. There, he said, it had come to be considered that the right to labor was royal, a right which he denounced as a heresy to be rejected; the right to labor is in herent in man and inalienable. The rela tions of labor and capital under the rules ab rogated Dy lurgot were crude and imperfect, By them capital was destroyed and accumu lating prevented. Labor, throueh its repre sentatives, did its best to prevent and hinder advancement. Every nation sought to monopolize trade and prevent other nations from sharing therein. Wars were declared and earned on to break down trade rivals It is only through a study of English trade- laws that the true cause of American revolu tion can be found. Restrictions on trade were the main causes. Otis s argument of writs ot assistance was against a system which authorized the searching of houses for contraband goods. He compared these anti- revolutionary writs with those issued in New York city within five years, which, instead of searching lor goods, searched lor private papers to hud evidence ot illegal trade. Such false economic laws made the people a nation oi law-DreaKera. John 11 an cock was the very pnnce of contraband traders. and the day in which the battle of Lexington was fought was set down aa t ho time when argument was to have been made on some of his acts as contraband trades. All felt that the government was their enemy. Fully half of the world before the revolution was contraband or brigandage. In Europe, numerous large and influential bodies of new men lived by breaking the laws of trade. Had it not been for trade illegally carried on, commerce would have ceased. With the abrogation of these restrictive laws both public and private mor ality increased. There is no such grand cause of danger to our institutions as that arising from public and private immorality since icq, me uunt ui corruption was entered everywhere in that year. Fully fifty million were taxen irom the pockets of the people by corrupt legislation. The tax on whisky was put np step by step until it reached one thousand per cent, on its cost, When the tax was reduced from eighty-two to fifty cents ' per callon. the revenue increased from eighteen to forty-four million dollars. Tax and other laws are en acted seemingly to encourage immorality by giving premiums oi evasions. The usury laws were particuariy denounced. Mr. Wells was attentively listened to by the large audience, who showd a deep interest in the meetings of the association. Among those who arrived to-day b attend the sessions of the convention wee J. It. Tucker, F. M. Lo gan, Virginia; W.L. Trenholm, South Car olina; General J. 1. Townsend and Edward T.

Kugghjs, of New York, addressed the association strongly in opposition to the double standard of silver and gold. He favored gold exclusively. George A. Potter, of New York, criticised Prof. Jevon's paper. He thought gold and silver both good, and that they should be used together, and that a simple standard of gold, silver and paper would be better. Dr. E. V. Wright, of Washington, spoke in favor of a silver standard. He thought that if congress would reinstate the silver standard, it would stop fluctuations. Prof. Otterburg, of Princeton, spoke against a double standard. The sectional meetinsr of the department of jurisprudence met, with Judge Bliss, of Mis souri, m the chair, froi. w. tr. wells, ot Michigan university, read a paper on "The work of American law schools and its hin drance." Prof. Pomeroy, of Rochester uni versity, Booke in favor of law schools. David Dudley Field thought that law schools were indispensable. The conference of the commission of the charities branch of the Social science associa tion, opened to-day, John V. L. Pruyn presid ing. It was stated that the number of in sane now in the State of New York is seven thousand, fifteen hundred of whom are cared for by friends. Mr. Elmore, president of the State board of charities of Wisconsin, reported that that State since 1865 expended in charities six million dollars. The proportion of criminals in the State is much less than in the States adjoining. An asylum for the chronic insane, of whom there are over three hundred in the State, is needed. The secretary of the board of charities of Michigan reported verbally fifty-two thou snnd two hundred and ten persons in all the poorhouses, and relieved temporarily, and in all the reform and penal institutions of the State. The cost of maintaining dependents of all kinds of charitable and penal institutions is seven hundred and thirty-five thousand dollars, two-thirds of which is for what may be called pauperism. Theodore Roosevelt, of the New York State association of charities, said the pauper tramp must be made to work, and must have a sen tence which will compel it. The representative from Missouri gave a discouraging report of the institutions in that State, schoolhouse8 as well as penal and be nevolent institutions, but improvements are in progress. In the department of jurisprudence Prof. Hunt, of Louisiana, read three interesting letters, written in 1821 and 1822, by Chan cellor Kent, to Edward Livingston, with ref erence I o the civil and military code, pre pared by the latter for the State of Louisiana. They have never been published. John P. Townsend, of New York, read a paper on savings banks at the afternoon ses sion of the main department of social science. He criticised sharply the conduct of the mana gers of pavings banks in building extrava gant offices, and7 also m supporting large salaried officers. . Gamaliel Bradford, of Boston, read a paper on the prospects of resumption. He thought them rather faint as things are now man aged, and regarded it as highly important that the secretAy of the treasury have a seat in congress. Discussion was opened bv Mr. Enslev. of Tennessee, who spolce of money and its con nection with the welfare ot the people. We hae never had a stable currence: it fluctu ates with the lawa of supply and demand. Money is no more a fixed standard than any other commodity. He advocated greenbacks. Ua the subject ot laxation, S. B. Chit tenden, of Brooklyn, Bald that overwhelming taxation came from the greenback delusion. The general government led off in repudia tion when congress repealed the law with drawing and cancelling the greenbacks. Greenbacks are the worst enemies of capital, and if not withdrawn municipalities with heavy debts will repudiate. The same folly of those who contend that more greenbacks are needed to relieve the distress is shown by the fact that more greenbacks are now in cir culation than when the panic commenced in lota. Ihe government has nothing to do now but to fund the greenbacks. The labor of the country is more in need of the with drawal of greenbacks than capital.
