The Iowa legislature adjourned tine die
yesterday. One of the measures made law
wai a bill restoring capital punishment.
RissrA i charged with rooking a strong
effort to avert the possibility or an Anglo
Austrian alliance before giving England, a
final answer.
Tub Goal answer from St. Petersburg to
England's inquiry whether the entire treaty
of San Stefano will be submitted to the con
gress it anxiously awaited at London.
While Austria is willing to participate in
the peace congress of the European powers,
that government entertains grave objections
to the entire treaty entered into at San Ste
fiao. The Grand Duke Nicholas, with a suite of
twelve, visited the sultan yesterday, who im
mediately returned the call at one of the pal
aces in Constantinople which has been placed
at the grand duke's disposal.
It has been ascertained by inquiries of
New York Postmaster James that mail time
from New York to Australia, via San Fran
cisco, is from thirty-six to thirty-eight days.
The time cia Europe is sixty-two to sixty-four
A Vienna correspondent, writing to the
London pree, think? that the Austrian gov
ernment seems to hi of opinion that the dif
ferences mmaining between England and
Russia are those of form rather than cf prin
ciple, and ought not to be a bar to the meat
ing of congress.
The London Times asserts that the con
tention of the Britibh government concerning
the final settlement of peace between Russia
and Turkey is justified in substance by Ea-
rope, and though the remaining objection is
not one which ought to be fatal, it is by Rus
sia, rather than Great Britain, that that ob
jection ought, in strict justice, to be removed.
This year will witness the inauguration of
Ilowgate'a polar colonization scheme; an ex
pedition under Nares, riVi the east coast of
Greenland; Prof. Nordenskjold's Swedish ex
pedition, via Norway, the White sea, to Beh-
ring's straits; a Dutch expedition; a German
expedition under tho auspices of the Arctic
exploration society, and a Russian expedition
into the unknown waste north of that empire.
A CORRE8POXDFNT inquired of the New
York Journal of Commerce: "In event of
war between England and Russia, does pri-
Tateering stand abolished by the treaty of
Paris on that subject, to which, as you will
recollect, the United States government, uu
der the secretaryship cf Mr. Marcy, refused
to become a party ?" Both belligerents will
be bound by that treaty, which lorever abol
ished privateering.
The New York cotton exchange system for
secaring cotton honesty went into operation
on Monday. The new rules provide that all
parties engaged in handling cotton be li
censed by the boaid of manager, and that
cotton must be delivered from or at a licensed
warehouse ia order to constitute a good de
livery. It is expected that the new system
will pat a stop to the practice of stealing here
tofore se extensively indulged in.
Ik aixcsiox to the critical situation brought
about between England and Russia, in con
sequence of the pretence of the British fleet
in the Sea of Marmora, and the position of
the Russians about Constantinople, the Lon
don Times thinks that if no unfarseeu inci
dent or complication discs from these cir
cumstances, war may be avoided, and after a
period of suspense, damaging to all the pow
ers, a fresh proposal -for a conference or con
gress will be brought forward under different
forms, with a hope of succcks.

It has been questioned whether a bank has
a right to stamp "counterfeit" on a bad bill.
The Journal of Commerce states that the of-
IScers of national banks are, by law, required

The committee appointed by the United
Ftatei treasury to examine the sub-treasury
f New York has completed their work.
Crery bxik has been examined and every ac
aunt verified by independent tests. All the

Representative Leonard, and escort it to
West Chester, Pennsylvania.
The house joint resolution to orescribe the
ume i or me payment ot the tax oa distilled

Senator Christiancy, from the committee on
judiciary, said he was directed by a majority
ot tne committee to report back the bill to
repeal the bankrupt law. He said an honest
effort had been made in the committee for
some time post to so amend the law that it
would be satisfactory to the public, but there
was such a conflict of opinion that it was im
possible to agree upon the amendments.
Several members of the committee who did
not favor its repeal consented that the bill
should be reported without recommendation.
Placed on the calendar.
Be it enacted, etc.. That the bankrupt law
approved March 2, 1867, and all acts in
amendment or supplementary thereto, or in
explanation thereof, be, and the same are,

repeal shall in no manner invalidate or effect
any cose in bankruptcy instituted and pend

said acts had not been repealed.
Senator Wallace, from the committee on
finance, reported favorably on the senate bill

Senator Blaine said: "I move that the
correspondence between the American and
Dritish governments in regard to the appoint
ment of Del fosse on the Halifax commission
be taken from the table and referred to the
committee on foreign affairs. I beg at the
same time to call tha attention of the senate
to the fact that the correspondence more than
justifies what I said in regard to the very ex
traordinary enorts of Lord Uranville to torce
Ueltosse upon our government. When the
resolution calling for this correspondence was
before the senate. 1 agreed with my honor
able colleague, the chairman of the commit
tee on foreign affairs, that the award would
be paid, not because it was just, or was
founded on any fact or evidence submitted to
the Halifax commission, but simply because
it was an award, which, for honor's sake, we
might pay, though we got nothing for the
large sum required, and if the payment of the
five and a half million dollars were the end
of the matter, I should be willing to vote it
in silence and bury the whole matter out of
sight. But the truth is, this award is only
the beginning of the trouble. The period
for which it pays will be ended
in five years, and then our privilege for
inshore fishing must be negotiated afresh.
It was well known at Halifax during the ses
sion of the commission that the Canadian au
thorities were striving not simply for the
large sum on hand, but for fixing the rate by
which to assess the price of the inshore fish
eries in the future. It ia our duty to show
that the rate fixed by the Halifax commission
has no foundation whatever in truth or in
fact, and that no evidence was before the
commission to justify the award. I hold in
my hand some statistics of very great inter
est, bearing on tho question, from which it
appears that the total value of the catch in
the inshore fisheries by American fishermen
during the four years the treaty has been in
operation, was only four hundred and thirty
five thousand one hundred and seventy dol
lars, on which the profit was probably one
hundred thousand dollars. This covers the
entire catch for which we obtained a right
under the treaty. During the same four
years the duties on Canadian fish and oil
remitted by our government amounted to a
million and a half dollars in gold, and now,
under this treaty we are compelled to pay
half a million dollars per annum in
addition, or two million dollars
gold for four years. In other words, by the
remission of duties and the payment of cash
from the treasury our government is called
on to pay three and a half million dollars in
gold for the privilege of permitting our fish
ermen to make a profit of one hundred thou
sand dollars on the inshore fisheries of No
va Scotia. Considerable comment has been
made in the country on the point suggested
by me, that the Washington treaty required
the unanimous verdict of the Halifax com
mission before a legally valid award could
be made. I quoted some eminent English
authorities in support of this position. Since
then, a friend has ehown me a copy of the
London Times, of July 6, 1877, containing
an elaborate editorial article in regard to the
fishery commission, then about to assemble
in Halifax. In discussing the powers of the
commission, the Times said: 'On every point
that comes before the fishery commission for
decision the unanimous consent of all its
members is, by the terms of the treaty, nec
essary before an authoritative verdict can be
given;" and the Times then points out the
difference between the Geneva tribunal and
the Halifax commission, showing that the
majority could decide at Geneva, but affirm
ing that the United States would have a
perfect right to demand unanimity in the ver
dict at Halifax. It is also well known that the
Halifax commission was discussed by the
Canadian ministry in 1375, after the negoti
ations for a reciprocity treaty had failed. On
that occasion Mr. Blake, minister of justice,
said that the amount of compensation we
shall receive must be an amount unani
mously agreed upon by the commission. I
mention these facts to show that I spoke with
full authority when I suggested that the ver
dict rendered at Halifax was not legally
binding under the terms of the treaty. Its
payment must be justified on other grounds,
and I have already intimated more than
once, the considerations entirely oat
side of the legality or the justice of the
award might constrain us to assent to its
payment, but it should never be paid with
out such a protest as will forever 'prevent its
being quoted as a precedent or accepted as a
sianaara 10 measure insnore nsnenes in fu
ture negotiations."
The motion to refer the correspondence to
the committee on foreign relations was then
agreed to.
Senator Cameron Wis. called up the peti
tion of D. J. Cor bin. claiming his seat as sen
ator from South Carolina presented by him
some time ago, and then laid on the table to
be called up at some future time and moved
that it be referred to the committee on privi
leges and elections. So ordered.
Senator Thurman presented a resolution
from the Cleveland board of trade, remon
strafing against the transfer of the control
of the life-saving service from the treasury to
tne navy department. Laid on tnc table.
Senator Davis W. Va.J submitted a pre
amble and resolution quoting from a report
to congress by the secretary of the treasury,
in 1871, to the effect that twenty million
seven nundred thousand nine hundred and
eighty-three dollars was due the government
from collectors of internal revenue not in of
fice, and directing the secretary to report to
ine senate wnat amount or portion ot this
sum has since that time been paid to the gov
ernment, what amount has been settled by
compromise, ana wnat steps nave been taken
to collect the balance. Ordered printed and
to lie on the table.
Senator Coke moved that the senate bill
amending the revised statutes in regard to
miiiua be made tne special order for Mon
day next. Agreed to.
Senator Coke also submitted an amend
ment providing that the several States have
the right, through their governors, to select
tne arms and equipments to be used, provided
they shall not exceed in cost the pro rata of
tne state making tne selection.
On motion of Senator Oclesbv it was or
dered that the testimony taken before the
committee on public lands in regard to the
a. ixarranan case be printed.
At the expiration of the morning hour the
senate resumed consideration of the Pacific
railroad sinking fund bill, and Senator Mer-
rimon spoke in favor of the bill reported by
the committee on judiciary.
Senator Mem mon having concluded, sen
ator Hill took the floor with the understand
ing that he would 8 peak to-morrow on the
bill, and, with the consent of Senator Thur
man. it was laid aside, and retains its place
as unnnisnea business.
Senator Thurman said he hoped it would
be the pleasure of the senate to proceed with
the consideration of the funding bill with
somewhat more industry than before, and
that a vote would be reached by the latter
part of this week, or the first of next.
Senator Mathews said that when he ad-
dressedlthe senate, a few days ago,on the fund
ing bill, he gave notice that he would move
the adoption of the bill reported by the com
mittee on railroads as a substitute tor that
reported by the committee on the judiciary,
and he now submitted that motion.
Senator Windom then called up the con
sular and diplomatic appropriation bill, and
said he was prepared to go on with it to-day,
but, at tne request ot senator uamhn, chair
man of the committee on foreign relations.
he had concluded to let it go over until to
morrow. After a short executive session, the senate
an ine lusie.
Mr. Atkins, chairman of the committee on
appropriations, reported the legislative, ex

Mr. Wood reported a resolution making
the tariff bill the special order for Thursday,
April 4th, after the morning hour.
Mr. U NeilI "I move to lay tne bill on tne
The Speaker "The bill is not before the
house it is in committee of the whole."
Mr. Conger I believe it is the opinion of
the majority of the house that the bill should
not be considered at all.
Mr. Wood I am quite willing to test the
sense of the house on that question, and
therefore move the previous question.
Mr. Conger 1 hope the resolution will be
voted down; I have an amendment I want
to offer.
After debate the previous question was
seconded by a vote of 123 to 107, and the
resolution was adopted yeas, 137; nays, 114.
Although it may be regarded as lurnishing
a general indication ot the decision ot tne
house on the subject of the tariff, it is by no
means conclusive, tor it is understood tnat
several Democratic members, out of courtesy
to the committee of waysnd means, voted
to made the bill the special order who would
not vote for the passage of the bill.

Advices from a number of localities in the
Ohio valley and lower lake region indicate
that, owing to the fact that there had been
no rains for the past week or more, the
severe cold weather of last Sunday night and
Monday has not utterly destroyed the fruit

ley; but in the northern portions, in many
instances, the crop is seriously damaged.

Topeka, Kb , March 26 About twenty
five men appeared at the jail in this city at
two o clock tms morning. Unly two entered
at first, one of them stating that he was the
sheriff of Waubaunese county, and had a
prisoner to put in. The jailer knew that
sheriff, and told him he could not come in,
and upon refusing to leave, commenced to
fire on him. Immediately about twenty men
poured into the jail, and a good many shots
were fired on both sides. One of the assail
ants was carried off wonnded, and the party
retired. There are various theories as to their
intention, but it is generally believed that
they were alter lrue, the murderer of Rev.
Mr. Wolpert, in Pottowattomie county. True

WASHroaTOsy-Mnrch 24. The investiga
tion into tne an airs ot tne postomce depart
ment by a sub-committee ol the house com-
mitte on postoffices and post-roads, of which
Mr. Money, of Mississippi, is chairman, has
been fruitful of some rich developments, and
promises to uncover an amount of miaman
agement to call it by no harsher term that
will startle the country, and relieve the south
of the charge so often made by Republican
congressmen that she cannot pay for the
postal facilities enjoyed, and is a burden in
that respect to the republic. These develop
ments, while fruitful of confessions by con
tractors that they have long enjoyed a fat
thing, out of which, without any labor, they
have been able to pocket big profits, do not
so far reflect upon them in any criminal way,
but do reflect upon the postal authorities,
who, with facts before them, supplied by their
own trusted agents, have continued to con
nive at a state of things which largely ac
counts for the nearly five million dollars of
deficit in postal revenue, which the people
have been taxed to make good. It has been
put in evidence, and acknowledged by con
tractors, that in some cases they do not pay
anything for having the mails carried on
routes for which the department, under con
tract, pays them in some instances
five thousand dollars, and in others more.
Among other subjects upon which much light
has been thrown. I may mention the character
of the bids made, the responsibility of the bid
ders and their sureties, and the combinations
made here to control bids through officials
and official favorites, there being a com
pany, or, as Mr. Money called it, a "ring,"
formed here which contracts for over sixty
routes, and sub-lets them at an enormous
profit. A specimen of this sort of arrange-
ment was furnished on inursaay oy Judge
W. W. Wilshire,of Little Rock, an ex-member
of congress, who, in his testimony before
the committee, stated that during last Janu
uary Hadley, the postmaster at Little Rock,
called him ( Wilshire) into the postoffice and
asked him to sign a lot of bids for mail con
tracts. The bids only contained the number,
terminal points of the mail routes, and the
amount of the bond. In all other respects
they were blank. Wilshire said he considered
the matter, and in a few days signed the
whole batch as one of the sureties. There were
fifty or more bids in the batch. He understood
that G. W. M'Diarmid, of Little Rock, after
ward signed the bids as the other surety. He
also understood that the bids had been sent
from Washington by Senator Dorsey to Hadley
to get them signed by propeR sureties. Wil
shire claimed that he did not know that he
was sitnine bonds at the time. He said he
called recently at the postoffice department,
and informed them of the informality in the
signatures to the bids. He only found one
of the bids on which a contract had been let,
and that was in the name of John M. Peck,
who has been in New Mexico for a year, and
duringthat time has not been in Washing
ton. The bid was in due form, and properly';
attested before Boone, a notary of this city.
It also purported to have been signed by the
sureties in presence of two witnesses, Ker-
rott and Wheeler, bnt the witness said no
body was present when he signed. The evi
dence shows that a scheme was concocted to
get hold of a large number of western con
tracts, and, in order to have their bids ready
to be put in at the right time, tne parties
sent out blanks and got them signed by
suveties. Afterward they filled them up and
put in their bids. Wilshire said that he waa
worth forty thousand dollars free of all in
cumbrance. He was not sure that Senator
Dorsey Bent out the bids; it might
have been his brother. On this point
Judare M'Clure (Poker Jack), Ex-Governor
Clayton and Ex-Sheriff A. P. Currie will tes
tify to-morrow. Peck's name, it is said, was
affixed to the papers by Senator Dorsey,
whom rumor also sets down as one of the
proposed beneficiaries. Ex-Governor Had
ley is also here, and will, no doubt, try to
answer Wilshire's testimony. Rich devel
opments are expected. M'Clure and Clayton
are at war with Dorsey. They have raised
the black flag, drawn the sword and thrown
away the scabbard. They will neither give
nor take quarter. i. m. k.

New York, March 26. Fire broke out
this morning in the six-story marble-front
building Nos. 261 to 267 Canal street. The
names spread with great rapidity, and the
third alarm for fire-engines was sent out.
when, after two hours of hard labor, the fire
was got under control. The following is a
list of the losses and insurances: The build
ing was owned by E. S. Higgins. The first
floor and basement were occupied by B. L.
Coffin, dealer in notions and hosiery; loss,
$ 65,000; insurance, foO.000. Second floor,
Nos. 261 and 263, occupied by Cohen, Ball &
Co., clothiers; loss, $150,000; insurance,
$100,000. Second floor, Ncs. 265 and 267,
occupied by Hill Bros., dealers in millinery
goods; loss, flUU.UUU; insurance, ffo.uuu.
Loss on building, 1200,000; insurance, f 110,-
000. No. 259, owned by Charles Fox & Son,
was considerably
The upper part of No. 261 was occupied by
R. R. Eiias & Co., manufacturers of white
flannel drawers, shirts, etc., and the Luigerie
manufacturing company of ladies' scarfs,
etc. ihese firms suffered a total loss. Ihe
store of No. 247 was occupied by Wm. O.
Hadley as a salesroom far trunks, traveling
bags and valiBes. This firm's manufactory
is at Newark, and they had a large stock of
Sods in store for the spring trade. Mr.
ad ley fcaid that at present he was unable to
make any estimate whatever of his loss. He
stated that they were insured for a consider
able amount; the stock is totally destroyed.
Thomas Cbatterton & Co., manufacturers of
men '8 and boys' clothing, occupied the third
and fourth floors of No. 267 Canal sheet,
and lost all their stock. Their loss is about
$20,000. The buildings of Nos. 265 and 267
Canal street extended through to Howard
street, the entire store and first floor being
occupied by Messrs. Hill Brothers. The front
and rear of the buildings on Canal and
Howard streets were separated by large sky
lights in the center of the block, immediately
over the first floor, and it was only by the
MEN, that the flames were prevented from commu
nicating to the Howard street side of the
marble pile. The upper four stories of No.
23 Howard street are occupied by Meinberg
& Co., dealers in dress goods and zephyr
worsted. Mr. Meinberg said his stock
throughout was badly damaged by water and
smoke, but until the goods were all examined
it would be impossible to make any estimate
of their loss. The firm has insurance for
$50,000. G. F. Leschorn & Co., importers
and manufacturers of dress trimmings, occu
pying No. 21 Howard street, sustained dam
age to their stock by water and smoke to the
amount of $17,000; insured. The building
is one of the finest on that part of the street,
and was erected ten or twelve years ago by
Mr. Hifgins for his own use as a carpet
warehouse. The fire must have been smould
ering for some hours, as shortly after its dis
covery the flames broke forth with uncon
trolable fury from the upper stories in the
center of the row, and at one moment threat
ened the destruction of the entire block.

Nicholas, accompanied by twelve Russian
generals, proceeded to-day in the imperial
yacht Livadia to the Dolmabaghtche palace,
where' he was received by the sultan, sur
rounded by his ministers and Osman
Pasha and other generals. The
grand duke conversed with the sultan
twenty minutes. He then went to the Beger
lebeg palace, where he was visited forty-five
minutes later by the sultan. The grand duke
and his Buite next proceeded to the former
Russian embassy, in front of which the Rus
sian eagles were displayed. The grand duke
will sleep on board of the Livadia to-night,
and take luncheon with the sultan to-mor-
It is said that the grand duke, in referring
to the Porte's apprehensions of a possible
Anglo-Russian conflict, expressed the hope

London, March 26. The Post savs that
another vain attempt has been made to induce
Russia to acknowledge some responsibility to
Europe. Her reply is invariable, viz: You
have full liberty of appreciation and action.
The leader concludes: "Should the con
gress fail, some means may vet be soucht
for establishing a real or pretended agree
ment. It is not probable that it will be
found, and unless Russia yields to the storm
that is brewing, it will break out."
A correspondent at Berlin savs: "An ap
parently inspired article in the Berlin Post
justifies England's demand, and declares
that Kussia should be wise enough to be
no hope of the congress meeting.
London. March 26. The following ia from
St. Petersburg: "Those having the direction
of affairs here appear to have very little hope
of a solution of the present dead-lock, al
though the holding of the contrress without
England would have the advantage of iso
lating her and consolidating the triple alli
ance. It is regarded more probable that the
congress will not meet at all. . The whole
question seems to be einkinc from the sphere
of reason to that of passion."
A .Berlin correspondent savs that the Aus
trian idea of a congress without England is
being discountenanced by France and Ger
many. It is possible that only the three
chancellors will meet in Berlin, but even this
is yet improbable. Germany is sure to, take
no proceedings against England. . , ,.
Important Decision by Jadre Blatrh-
ford, Kemandlnar the Case for Trial
An Appeal to the United States
Snpreme Court Probable.
New York. March 26. Judtre Blatchford.
of the United States district court, gave a de
cision to-day in tne suit ot the United States
against Ex-Governor Samuel J. Tilden, to
recover some one hundred and fifty thousand
dollars income-tax alleged to be due the gov
ernment by the defendant. The suit, it will
be remembered, was brought in the United
States district court when Mr. Tilden was
the Democratic candidate for President, and,
it was alleged, was only brought for political
purposes. The counsel for Mr. Tilden set up
a demurrer, and the case was argued at great
length. Judge Blatchford's decision is quite
lengthy, and cites innumerable authorities,
the principal of which are the United States
supreme court decision in the Dollars savings
bank case and the Rhode Island case lately
decided by the supreme court. He sustains
the defendant's demurrer to the first count
in the complaint, on the ground that in the
year covered by this count Mr. Tilden had
made a return rxt his income, and paid the
tax on such return ; on the other eleven counts
in the complaint he sustains the plaintiffs, the
United States, in their demurrer to the ans
wer of the defense, holding, virtually, that
the government was not bound by the action
of the United States assessor, as its agent,
and that Mr. Tilden was required to make,
himself, a return of his income, which he had
not done. The case is now to proceed to trial
by a jury, on the question of the amount of
income ot Mr. lilden during the years in
which he made no return himself. . For three
years Mr. Tilden allowed the United States
assessor to make the return, and paid the tax
on such return, together with a penalty of
five per cent.; but this, the court holds, was
not sufficient, as will be seen by the decision
above. It is more than probable that Mr.
Tilden 's counsel will appeal the case to the
United States supreme court.
The Past Week's Review ttlves Sea
sonable Weather Reports and
Favorable Condition or Wheat
Hopes .of .'a Prosperous
London, March 26. The Mark Lane Ex
press, reviewing the untisn corn traae the
past week, says: A large breadth ot spring
corn will be planted under the most favorable
conditions, and the seasonable weather of
the last tew weens has strengthened the
wheat plant without unduly forcing it. In
spite of the present wintry weather we have
every reason to hope for a more prosperous
season than for three years. In many dis
tricts the sowing of barley and oats is nearly
completed, and another week of dry weather
would see nearly the end of spring sowing.
Some reaction in favor of higher prices is
noticeable in the wheat trade, but the im
provement has only in a few cases extended
to home-grown grain, whichlhas been mar
keted in very short quantity and in a some
what defective condition. Foreign wheat, of
which imports into London were very mod
erate, is met . with an improved demand,
at an advance of one shilling per quarter,
chiefly on American descriptions, but more
business is oassinsr than of late in all varie
ties, and the tendency of prices is in sellers'
favor. There has been some continental de
mand, which has tended to advance values
for cargoes off the coast. It is probable
France will require seven hundred thousand
quarters ot tine wheat lor mixing purposes
between this and harvest. Judging from
the dullness of trade at the close of the
week, it is doubtful whether hist week Mon
day's advance will be maintained, as arri
vals of wheat from America and Russia the
next few months will be on too large a scale
to admit ot much enhancement of values.
France will probably relieve ns of some por
tion of the accumulated stock in southern
Russia; but, allowing for this, it is scarcely
likely the ordinary consumptive de
mand will be sufficient to support
resent currencies. Some attention is
irected to Indian wheat, of which stocks
in London are worked down to a comparative
narrow compass, and a slight improvement
in the value of Calcutta produce appears
Erobable. Maize, although quiet, is fair
j steady. Both old and .new corn is in
moderate request at late rates, but other
sorts of feeding corn are dull. Grinding bar
ley and inferior sorts of oats have given way
one shilling and sixpence per quarter, respect
ively, with moderate arrivals at the ports of
call. The floating cargo trade for wheat
ruled steady. The demand for the continent
continues. Maize has advanced three pence
to sixpence. Barley sold slowly, at rather
easier terms.

A number of members of congress, friends
of the President, called upon him this morn
ing with reference to the speech of Senator
Howe. They all expressed more feeling in
the matter than the President himself, and ,
suggested that the speech be1 answered, fear
ing that to permit it to pass in silence might
be an admission of its entire truth. The
President took a different view, placing him
self On the ground that what he had done
in the way of official action was based on his
sense of right, without thinking for a moment
what might be the result as affecting him
personally. He was opposed to a public re
sponse, preferring that his acts should be the
interpreter of his motives and principles.
He had songht to perform his duty, and with

terly Senator Howe had denounced President
Lincoln at the close of his first term, and
how others had sought to prevent Mr.
Lincoln from being nominated for a second
term, but, notwithstanding all this, he
was renominated and became more popular
than ever, the people having become better
acquainted with him and appreciating his
conduct more. President Hayes was per
fectly willing to be judged by the same tribu
nal. The President does not appear in the least
disturbed by Howe's speech, believing that"
time will fully vindicate him. Among those
who called were Senators Mathews, Hoar,
Cameron, of Wisconsin, and Ferry and Rep
resentative M'Cook, of New York.
The senate, in executive session, confirmed

A Demand for MBls Six's" Release.
New York, March 26. Comptroller Kel
ly has sent a communication to Attorney
General Fairchild urging the release of Wm.
M. Tweed. Kelly says that his promise to
Tweed that the late attorney-general would
release him if he would make a full confession
of bis misdeeds and surrender his property
induced Tweed's confession and his proffer
of the surrender of his property. He states
that the late attorney-general promised him
Kelly he (would discharge Tweed if he
complied with these demands. As a citizen,
Kelly says, he feels that the State is being
dishonored by this breach of trust, and he
believed that Tweed's further detention was
neither beneficial to the State as an example
to evil doers, nor serviceable to the city.
Tweed's testimony, says Kelly, in the
suits against the city, involving millions of
dollars, would be very important, but he re
fuses to testify unless discharged.

In a Dead Han's Stomach An Al
most Incredible but Well
Authenticated Story.
A St. Louis correspondent furnishes the
Evening Post, of that city, with tho follow
ing remarkable case: In your issue of Sat
urday there is related an incident of a eirl
swallowing a number of dimes and ither
metallic substances, and after retain
ing them for some time, throwing
them off her stomach, the con
dition of the metals making it apparent that
some of them had been in their hiding place
for a considerable time. Many incredulous
people will regard this as a doubtful story,
but to show what the human stomach is ca
pable of holding, I will relate an incident
that happened some years ago, and is well
A man named James Moore, a laborer liv
ing in London, was brought to Guy's hos
pital," in that city, sick. He was to all ap-
Eearance a healthy, strong man, about forty
ve years of age. He was taken to the med
ical ward and examined by the
attendant doctor, when the patient
complained of a pain in the stomach.
He was treated but grew worse, and after
several days the attention of the faculty of
the hospital was called to the case. But
none of them could diagnose the disease.
The patient could not retain any nour
ishment on his stomach, gradually grew
weaker, and after being in the hos
pital about one month, died. A post-mortem
examination was then held to ascertain the
cause of death in this mysterious case. On
opening the stomach the remains of thirty
seven pocket-knives were found. I say re
mains, because some of them had been
digested so far that only a por
tion of one blade was found Others were
comparatively uninjured. In most of the
knives the handles were gone entirely, the
metal in that part of the knife and the mate
rial of which the handle was made being
more digestible than the hardened steel of
the blades.
In the museum of Guy's hospital will now
be found a glass case containing these knives
with the particulars attached, relating the
circumstances attending their recovery from
the stomach ot the dead man. Wo date
could be found on which to base an
opinion of the length of time they had been
swallowed, but from the condition of some of
Lthem they must have been there for many
years. Ihe man, probably, had had a mama
for swallowing knives, or else devoured them
when in an unconscious condition.
