THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPBAL---B'EIDAY. jmSTDB 11, 18BO.
IKHPOIS APPEAL FRIDAY, x X JOKE 11, 1880 t THK political outlook. The Republican party i to be congratula ted on it nominee for the Presidency. Jamet A. GatBeld ia a respectable citizen, of arer aga attainment. He waa a brare soldier and has been a coospicuou member of congress, bot hia record ii not without blemish. Blaine ia the true type of the man wanted by the stalwart. Grant who crawled through eight yeais of stubborn incompetency, and wrote dishonor and lawlessness over the gateof almost every temple of authority, was the type ot a man wanted by the machine politi cians and the oorruptionista. To save the party from annihilation, and to rescue it from the entanglement in which it was placed by a whole week's wrangle among the aspirants, Jamea A. Garfield was nominated. He js a man of ability, and one of the moat decent leaders of a corrupt party, and the fact that a oorruptionist and machine politician has been nominated for the ' Vice-Presidency, shows that he will be controlled by the worst elements of the Republican party. Garfield is not a candidate to be despised on the score of weakness before the people. He will unite his party, for he did not., cross i the paths or arouse the jealousies and enmi ties of the warring factions at Chicago, and Conkling and Logan and the supporters of Grant, as well aa Blaine and Sherman, will rival each other in aeal and enthusiasm, each hoping to be his master, should he) bs elected President. Democratic folly nay yet - make Garfield not only a strong but a sac ' eesefal candidate. There is the great yawn ing chasm at Cincinnati to be passed on the twenty-second instant. An average degree of Democratic folly at Cincinnati wilt make Garfield a formidable candidate, and nothing less than the highest measure of patriotism and wisdom in the National Democratic eon vention can defeat him. His defeat ia pos sible, and it can be made certain by the nom ination of a good man. The Cincinnati con vention will not be characterized by the scenes that occurred at Chicago, but it will have its prolific harvest of embarassments, and whether it will be equal to its opportu nity is the problem to be solved. It will have no administration with swarms ol greedy officials to make a ' death-struggle for their placrs, nor will it have a mili tary hero disgracing himself by engaging in a scramble for a third-term. But it will have a load of indiscretion to struggle under the folly of men who look more to personal preferences than success to contuse and dis sipate its wiser counsels, and thus keep the party in the shadow of death. The Republi can party has retired Grant and Blaine, two stalwarts who have been prominent in keep ing alive sectional hatreds and the greatest impediments to peace and tranquillity, There are thousands of independent voters to be found, both north and south, regardless of party names, to elect the man who will giv peace and prosperity to the country, and in such a contest it will not do for the Demo crats to nominate a man of doubtful fidelity to the integrity of the Union during the late civil war. If the country must choose be tween a Republican general and a mis-' trusted Democratic candidate, it will choose the Republican. There is bat one mission as well as but one hope for the Democracy, and that is proving at Cinc'i sati that the convictions and purpoces of the par ty is to nominate a candidate who will fcivt peace to the country. If wise counsel pre vail at Cincinnati the nominee will be elected. The nenrnation of Garfield will make no impression upon the solid south. The convention should recognize that its first duty is to construct such a ticket as will com mand the united and hearty approval and support of those States which are considered indispensable to success. It is a golden op portunity, and if the Democrats at Cincinnati are wise, they will sink personal preference. and nominate a ticket which will sweep the country from ocean to ocean, and from the gulf to the lake. TUB CJAIM OK BAV1XU THK EX CHiK(Et AUAISMT CSV. tl The steady increase of our imports is every where exciting the attention of business peo ple. It causes no surprise, for it ia a neces sary and expected result ot revived trade, but it affects the exchsnges of our country with foreign lands, and will ultimately affect the condition of our circulating currency. Thesu things make the change one of importance to all who are engaged in trade. The imports of merchandise into,. the United Stares for the nine months ending March 31st amount ed to $468,213,622, sgainet $329 375,177 for the corresponding months of 1878-9; show ing an increase of $138 638.445. Of the total amount of goods arrived At the ports, 80 per cent, passed direct into consumption and 20 per cent, went into bonded warehouse. For the same period of 1878-9, 76 per cent, of the imports were entered for consumption and 24 per cent, for warehouse. This comparison shows that, notwithstanding the" extraordi nary increase in the importation!, a lees pro portion of the arrivals has gone into ware house to await a market than- the preceding year. This is a healthy indication, and shows j that, up to the end of March; the imports were responded to by an actual consumptive demand. This increase of imports means that we have been spending more money than we weie a year sgo, and, therefore, the exchanges are less favorable to ns that is, they come less in the form ot money than last year. This expression, "less favorable,1 ia an illusive one and deceives many. A mer chant at the end of a year finds that, with a smaller stock than last year, he has more money to his banking account. As every dol lar's worth of h stock is worth as much as a dollar's worth of gold, his increased bank deposit can be no more in his favor than more stock and lets deposit would be. Of course, we are speaking of the stock as good and marketable. Therefore, instead of the show ing of our imports being "less favorable,' it possibly may be more so. Included in the artioles imported are nineteen raw materials, the aggregate value of the nine months' im ports of which amount to $94,SO0.0O0, against $50,100 000 for the corresponding months ot 1873-9. In the item of hides and skins, for instance, there is an increase of $9,400, 000, which represents a large expansion ot the leather trade; in India rubber and gutta percba, an increase of $3,000,000; m paper materials, $1,740,000; in raw silk, $3(0O0C0; in nnmsnulactured tin, $2,900,000 in raw hemp, $1000,000; in aoda, $900,000, and in wool, $12,900,000, all of which expresses a large current increase of activity ia domestic factories. The value of the hides and skins was $21,727,201, against $12,299,079 last year, so that in the articles of skins and hidss we have received this year $9,430,000 more in goods and less in money than tho year before. Is this less fsvc ruble f On the contrary, it ia more so. Ik tore the ten million of money can be done anything with commercially it must be exchsaged fcr merchandise; but in the case of skins and hide that portion of the busi ness is done and its risks and expense are over. The skins and hide are ready for the znsnufacturerk who will make them worth a vast sum compared with their present value. Bring ten millions in money from abroad and those coins remain just that tea millions add ed to the country's wealth, and no more, as long a the country retail them. With the skins and hides it is different. A they taad they have added ten million to the country' wealth the country' labor will turu them into fur and shoes and aaddles worth very many millions, adding that increased amount to the coun try's wealth. The expression "un favorable" is therefore, in this aspect, deceptive, aa much so that before long, when the exchanges that for sometime have been "in our favor" turn wholly against us, blun derers and demagogue will proclaim that the country is going to ruin. Let those who now read this remember the skins and hides, and also that eighteen other article for man ufscturing are in the same way sura to in cress in rain, which gold could not, loch u raw silk, India rubber, dye-stoffs, and other articles. If we admitted material for shipbuilding to coma in free, then that kind of import that is "unfavorable," yet enriches us, would be increased. Just the sort of blun dering we are pointing out prevents this being done, so that the country loses that amount of profit for capital, and that amount of employment for labor. There is a portion of the increased , receipt that is really "un favorable," as far as the were money point of view is concerned. ; While the imports were low, and the exchanges in our favor," we were suffering from "hard times" and economized severely. Now as we have better times the exchanges become "unfavor able," and partly do so because we buy more luxuries. Fruits and nuts show an in crease of fl.900.000, or about 25 per cent.; wine and spirits an increase of 33 per cent., or $1,300,000; spices, of 40 per cent.; furs, of 35 percent.; paintings and statuary, of 64 per cent; while the imports of precious stones have nearly doubled, the nine months' receipts being $5,154,000 compared with $2,996,000 for the same period of the pro ceeding fiscal year. If 'refinement 'js "un favorable," then all oar 'Increased '"expendi ture for the above articles, and for tea and ooffee, and for all not necessary to barbaric life, must be "unfavorable" also. ' THJS THBAJt OF JCSlGKATIOai, The tide of emigration seta steadily in from Europe toward oar own shores. It is especially observable' that the English! are coming in increased numbers, and it takes something strongly harsb to introce" these islander to leave their homes. Swedes and Norwegians, generally making for W'lBton in, Minnesota, and the fine wheat plains of Dakotah, are rushing for this side, driven from their homes by the hopeless condition of the laborer who live scantily "from band to month." The German emigration con tinues with SUady fl5wrj It7 ia" le sb affected by the mere circumstance of the- time than any other. It has become a portion of the fixed policy of certain elements of German l fe. The German governments view with disapprobation the regular passing away of an important tart of their populations, im portant not on account of the numbers alone, but because the departing emigrants so large ly include the most spirited, robust and'! in dustrious among their people. It is not1 the weak, ambitionless and unthinking that ven ture from their loved native spot, but the shrewd, vigorous-minded and intelligent, the very element of population it is desirable to retain. Therefore the governments dislike this steady flow of their sabjecls to these shores, and, unable to stop it, they throw difficulties in the way. Local and central authorities discourage it. For any person to become active in inducing and facilitating emigra- don so writes a Liverpool correspondent to the New YorVTSm is to draw upon him self the watchful oversight of the police, and to be subjected to unpleasant interrogation and interference. The authorities are not tolerant of direct advocacy of emigration or of effort to increase it. -The great preachers of emigration are those who are settled in this country, and who write home telling friends and old neighbor what has to be ten dured and what to be gained by a change' of country, habits, amusements,' social customs, and language. How much of heroism there often is in the German's and especially the German woman's leaving those they Iove'fov a far-eff land, we here little dream of. What difficulties are endured, what toils engaged in, that the latter days of gray-haired parents nay be made comfortable; that brothers and sisters may have the means of liv ing decently, and a home to come to in the new country' if circumstances should 'make it i desirable. So the Germans at home' carry on'their emigrant schemes among themselves.; They greedily seek information. Letters from America, especially from those who have recently gone there, are circulated widely in the neighbor hoods they left."" Visitor from this ido to their old home are eagerly questioned about the country they have made' theirs, and the best means of getting; there. Clubs are formed, report are received from this side, deta'ls of vessels sail Lag, the directions and cost of travel are all ascertained, so that those who go away shall know at every point ex actly what to do. ; Ia Germany emigration is not spasmodic or -fluctuating. It is decided upon beforehand, prepared for at leisure, and carried out with that business-like steadfast ness so consonant with the German character. So the monster army loses food for powder', so the national exchptraer" lose-' contributors to tax exactions, and so the country loses many of its best people. Bismarck and the govern mental power cannot be withstood, but they can be escaped from. Freedom cannot be gained at -home, but 'it - can j be fled to,' , 60 1 on come the great itream, year by . year,; that builds up cities, clears forests, crowns prairies witb golden harvests, and awakens American echoes with the notes of the songs of Father land thrilled in accent that were spoken by our own Anglo-Saxon progenitors. When we have conquered prejudices, and shown how truly freedom subsists on' our "fertile acre, how secure is human life, tad low safe private property, and how easily a com fortable liviag can be obtained and wealth achieved in our favored clime, the unceasing i stream of immigration will turn toward the sunny south, -and sorrows brooded over: on the Rhine and the Danube will be comforted on the banks of tthe Mississippi and the Tombigbee. " FASiHlOlI COHTBOLLIKS BRUBF. Mother Shipt-in's prophecies, uttered two hundred years ago, have assured the world all that time that in 1881 this- world's end would come. Thirty years ago people were made lunatics, and the tenants at the asylums increased, by the vehement assurances of pious lookers for wonders that in those days the last trump would sound its stern peal along the skies, that the dead would rise from (heir awful sleep, and that the living elect would mount beyond the clouds and "meet the Lord in the air." Neither the music, nor the performance it was to usher in, have yet been heard or sera, and the consequence is a disinclination at this day to swallow mere assertions, however gravely they are made, or even when uttered two hundred years ago. The present temper of society tends to de nial rather than to assertion, to question rather than to credit. It is doubted whether Homer wrote his own poem, and st ffly de nied that Shakespeare wrote his own play?, or that creation had any maker, or man any other predecessor than a monkey. Scientific denial is so prevalent that it is even begin ning to attack scientific facts as well as his toric details. Thj Baltimorean, of Saturday last, informs us that Prof. Wm. Carpenter, of London, has delivered a lecture in the Christian Tabernacle in that city, in which be denounced as folly the belief that the earth is a heavenly body revolving round the son, and as an outrage on common secss the notion that it ia a round globe. The speaker had facta to detail in abundance in proof ot his position. True, in spite of his "facts," ships start from a port and never turn round to retrace their journey, yet they go to the same port they started from, though they ap proach it from an opposite direction. True that this looks like demonstration because we know that if a fly walk across a level table it ia not in the same place at the end of the trip that it started from. This is all true, but the roundness of the earth is de nied in spite of it, simply because "the run" to-day is toward denial and doubt, as it was thirty years ago toward assertion and belief. Ia time the assertive fashion will revive, and then not only will the world be round, but very probably there will be facta brought for ward as strong as those of Prof. Carpenter giving conclusive proof that the moon, after all, is made of new cheese. There is a cer tain sort of opinion which generally calls it self belief that depends cot upon evidence and is regardless of demonstration, but which depends npoa "what is all the go" at a given time, just as the ladies depend upon the same excellent authority for knowinsj i what is "the sweetest thing" to wear as the fashion. j FEKRI'S BAD FISH FRY. Another Account of the Scandalous Ren counter Between the Senator from Michigan and the Husband and Daughter of Mrs. Cooper, of Detroit Ferry was . Too Marked in bis Attentions to Captain Cooper's Wife and Interfered In Miss ! Cooper's Love Affairs, Hence the t'owhiding, the Knock Down and the Black Eye, ' Washington. June 5. Chicago Time: One week ago last Sunday evening Senator Ferry of Michigan was made the hero of about as disgraceful and humiliating an in cident as could happen to anyone. He was attacked by Mr. Cooper of Milwaukee, and his daughter, Miss Cooper. The latter was armed with a whip and the . former -with a cane. Both assaulted Senator Ferry: and beat him, not very severely, but at the same time a physical castigation was administered. Trie aff ir occurred at half past ton o'clock in the evening. - The Coopers lett thn city next morning for Mil waukee. The 'affair made some stir in the hotel, bat in the absence of the Cooper Senator Ferry and his friends were able to partially suppress publication ot the affair. The Time correspondent: has been assured y Senator Ferry, -i ' TjrOK HIS PERSONAL HONOR, . that there was not a single word of truth in the s'.ory, and that it was a lie manufactured to defeat his chances of nomination for Vice President at Chicago. Mr. Ferry's friends say tbat Miss Ccoper had been made an cry at Senator Ferry's interference in a love affair ot hers, and tbat her attack was a verbal one. This evening the scandal broke out afresh, through the republication, by the Star pf a dispatch to the Times, from Milwaukee, giv ing a brief statement by Mr. Cooper of the encounter. The Time correspondent has, since this publication, found one person who is possessed of trustworthy information upon the subject ot this scandal. f The Star bps the following: "Mr. Sidney Cooper is a New Yorker, about forty years of age. Mrs. Cooper is a daughter of Mrs. Mar tin, a lady of wealth, residing in Milwaukee. For some years past they have spent ranch time in Washington daring the winter sea son, having their headquarters at the Na tional to'el. Senator Ferry, who is a bache lor, haa been on good terms with the Coopers, and it was noticed that he showed at times marked attention to the ladies (the daughter being a young miss about fifteen years of age). As to the origin of the difficulty, if any one knows - anything about it they carefully conceal it. Since the occurrence, which took place on the twenty-third of May, there have been a thousand and one rumors regar&ng it, some asserting tbat the senator was taken to task for an alleged assault, by the daugh ter, who went to the senator's room, where she drew a cowhide, and that he, attempting to get it from her, struck the butt of it in his eye. Oihei assert tbat she only gave !the senator a tongue-lashing. But, as will: be seen above, the black eye was caused by Mr. Cooper hinnelf. Oo the cause his card throws no light. It is now remembered by -many people in the hotel that on San day (the day of the occurrence) Mr. Cooper appeared much of the time to be " in a deep study, and evidently was contemplating the attack, but kept his own counsel, and was not seen down stairs after the attack (which occurred about half past nine or ten o'clock), except when he went to a druggist to get something to put on his hand, until next morning, when, with his wife and daughter, accompanied by a friend, he walked ever to the Baltimore ami Patomao depot and took his departure, a, few days afterward I an article having been published here regard ing the affair, Senator Ferry denied it, and receotly the explanation has been made that the senator had an altercation with a prom inent southern Republican, in which both re ceived black eyes." It is untrue that Senator Ferry had HIS BYES BLACKED in the affair, or that his countenance bears any mark of n jury. Since the publication in the Star this evening, he has shut himself up, reiusing to see any one. He is reported, however, to be in a condition of mind border ing upon despair owing to his intense humil iation, lbe person at the National hotel who has related to the Time correspondent the first true account of this scandal says the Coopers are frequent visitors at Washington. Mrs. Cooper is very rich. ' Her father . was a tailor in Milwaukee, and afterward a success ful banker, tie left upward of five hundred thousand dollars to his daughter, the presant airs, cooper, ine latter has a daughter. Miss Cooper has in her own right 'from her Sranorather one hundred thousand dollars, rs. Cooper is ,, . , . ; ' NOT HAPPrLT.ltABRTED.' vl " During the war aba was disappointed in a iovb nnair. one lovea a young ur. welter, of Milwaukee. Her parents objected to the match and carried their daughter off to New York. There she met Sidney Cooper, who waa then a captain in the army. . A match was hurried'y made up and the - daughter married to Mr. Cooper, who shortly alter- ward resigned, content to live upon his wife s income. ibis hasty marriage did not prove a very happy one. Captain Cooper was too aocial in his habits, and when under thd in fluence ot the cup that cheers was inclined to be vaporous and silly. Last vear the familv spent their time in Europe and in the tall they returned to Washington, where they pax sea tne season., miss uooper is represent ed as a very romantic, headstrong, heedless girl, unrestrained ai.d misguided as one would naturally be by not ;overvrehaed. ill- assorted parents. From the beginning of 'be winter to its close Senator Ferry ha been - J I . . XADLT DETOTED TO MBS. COOPER. ! The husband was an applicant for . the con sulate at NapU s. and Ferry worked hard to secure- the place for him. . The intimacy be tween Mrs. Uooper and senator Ferry was so matked as to provoke the greatest amount of gossip in the hotel. Senator Ferry's carriage was at the constant disposal of Mrs. Cjooer. S natot Ferry was her constant companion at public receptions, drivts. walks and the like. She accompanied Senator Ferry the evning of the diDlcmatic reception at the White . Mouse. U pon the occasion of the Uonrtnev Hanlan boat race Senator Ferry sent Mr. Cooper and daughter effin his carriage, and remamea at the hotel with Mrs. Uooper. This rapturous intimacy between the two was ear ned on with a reckless disregard of conse quences usually observed by lovers past the hrst Hash ot youth. - THE CTJL.irlNATTON came through the daughter having a lover in the bouse who was not pleasing to the moth er. To ere was no ' objection made by any member of the Cv-per tamily to the intimacy betwieo Senator Frrry and Mrs. Cooper nntil this yonthtul love affair was disturbed. In deed, it was not an uncommon thing for Cap tain Cooper to boast of his prospects tor the Naples consulate and the certainty M his get ting it, owing to the tact ot tbe intimacy between his wife and Senator Ferry. The son ot Coionel Field, doorkeeper of the house of representatives, a very nice young fellow, fell in love with Miss Cooper, the daughter. She returned bis regard. The mother ot jted, and torbade her daughter having anything to do with young Field, r The two, however, corresponded, and ' occasionally met, as op portunity presented, in the parlors of the hotel. Senator Ferry, in passing through the parlor one evening, saw the two together, and later reparted the fact to Mrs. Cooper. Ihis was upon - THE EVKJiTFUL SUNDAY EVENING. The daughter wa immediately summoned to her parents room." - Here the mother up braided her daughter for her disobedience. The daughter asked for the authority of this charge. The mother replied. Senator Ferry. Then it was that the daughter retaliated upon her mother. She said Senator Ferry was a nice man to be coming with talas about her, and in a shocking way began to describe some of Senator Ferry's affectionate gym nastics with her mother. She did not say enough to set Captain Cooper upon the ram page, as he was already in his usually excited condition. There ensued a domestic quarrel, in which Mrs. Cooper was CHAKGEPKTTH INFIDELrTT,. She sharply retorted, and, according to Na tional hotel -gosfip, was struck. A general fight easued,during whieh books were thrown .and the furniture generally pretty badly dis arranged. It appears - that : the daughter ended by revenging herse'f ; upon- Senator Ferry for his interference. She caught up a whip and shouted to her father that she was going to publicly . disgrace him for his con duct. Mr. Cooper followed her with a cane. He was especially bitter, for tbe Naples con sulate fight had gone against him. This bad been one of the points in the domestic fight. Cooper said that he could have secured the consulate if his wile had not been SO MT7CH IN IX) VE with Ferry that she would not leave the country. At any rate tbe daughter and father burst into Ferry's room without a word of warning. ; The daughter, with some incoherent remarks, began plying the whip about Ferry's face and shoulders. He seized her by both wrists, to prevent her striking, and as he held her Cooper knocked Ferry down with his cane, and struck him once or twice alter he was down, but not leaving any serious marks. Then the two swept oc, leaving Senator Ferry in a heap vr. j;r lh8 table.- The daughter, still very much excited. ran up and down the halls, re I a ting what she had been doing, and di splayed as she did so the black and blue marks on her wrists. The lateness of the hour prevented the scene from being very generally known. It is ono ef the most peculiar of the many congressional scandals ot the season. FICTION SCBPASSED.

New York Herald: A romance of real life ot tbe Enoch Arden character was reported at police headauarters on Saturday and yes - terday ; at the coroner's office.. A' modest looking matron, plainly but neatly attired, a Mrs. Meyers, the wit a ol a ureen pome arti san, called upon the above-aamea omciais in urch of intormation relative to the mys terious and 'protracted disappearance of her father, Daniel Bank, whom she naa not seen for a number of years. Neither could any thing be learned beyond a rumor to show whether he was living or dead. A search of the records of the coroner s othoe was made. Mrs. Mevers could give no definite data fur ther than the general statement that she had not seen her father since 1863. Some three years ago, however, a lady triend had in formed her that tbe newspapers of some pre vious date had contained a not ce of her father a death. After some difficulty and delay. Clerk Toal at last satsfied the woman's curiosity and set her mind at rest regarding the late ot her parent. lie haa aiea suaaen ly in a cheap lodginghouse, at No. 63 Mott street, August ia, loba, in the thirty-eigntn year of his age. Tne inquest proceedings, which were conducted by Coroner Flynn, showed that deceased had been in failing health for a long time, and1' had been an inmate ot a hospital for four months pre vious to his taking op bis resiaenoe in tne abode where he had come by his death. Strange to say uutil recently Mrs. Meyers was tot imperfectly acqjaioted with her father's antecedents. He had been absent from home tor such a long time that she was brought up to regard him as dead. Subsequent interest ing events had. however, ouickensd her curi osity to ascertain more about her father's history. With that otject in view she was engaged in accumulating testimony which, when properly reduced to legal form, would, she was convinced, make her heirecs to a property in England worth sixty thousand pounds sterling. From Mrs. Meyers and other reliable sources the history ot the de ceased was obtained. Daniel Bnk was born in Lancashire, Eng land, in 1831. where he obtained a liberal education. His father was a prosperous architect' and builder. .Before he bad out grown his teens he ran away from home and came to this country. Having been carefully educated in his father's profession he readily btained employment, at liberal wages, in this city. He had not yet attained his ma- jurity when he fell in love with a bright young girl whom he married. For a few years his wedded life was attended by happi ness and prosperity. A daughter was born to him; his business increased and riches seemed to flow in upon him. It appears, however, Ithat prosperity spoiled him. He purchased a fast horse to keep pace with h-s own headlong career of extravagance. He went to horse races and became a professional sport. Money slipped through his fingers like sand. - His wife, who was possessed of lets extravagant notions, touk exception to these spendthrift habits. Finding that she was opposed to bis life of expenditure and gayety, he took a notion into his head to abandon his wife and child. Being impetu ous ia all things he carried out this unnatural design. - This estrangement took place over a quarter of a century ago. Nothing waa seen or heard of him for a number of years there alter. In the meantime his wife had ad vertised for him in the newspapers, and deeming him dead sbe married again. Her second husband, a Mr. Vanderwall, was a steady man, and captain of a coasting schooner. During the time of her fancied widowhood and for seme time after her sec ond marriage Mrs. Vanderwall resided in Perl street. - One day, year after the disappearance of her hrst husband, while she was happy in her subsequent marriage relations and hav ing children, Daniel Bank returned. From being a handsome young man he had sadly degenerated in appearance. But he pro fessed to be repentant. His reappearance was a profound surprise. The matron found herself placed in an awkward dilemma. Her affection and allegiance, however, were cen tered in her second husband. A family cau cus was held. The prodigal should be pro pitiated for the loss of his wile. At one time a domestic war was threatened, but averted by the business-like diplomacy of Mrs. Vanderwall. A compromise was ef fected. ' The truant spouse could obtain pos session of his daughter and leave Mrs. Van derwall to live in peace with her supplemental lord and their interesting offspring. To this arrangement the bigh contracting parties signed their consent. Father and daughter took np their residence in Madison street, where they lived happily together for several years, he in the meantime working steadily at his trade. He never, however, rallied from the blow he had received at the forced sepa ration from his wife. He took to drink and became dissipated. From his relatives in England he was in the habit of receiving monthly remittances. It appears that he waa the only son of an only son. His father died a few yeais since, but his grandfather sur vived up to a few months ago. Father and daughter lived together until 1868. One day he left the house saying he was going to cash a check he had received from Eagland, and from that time nothing was heard of him. The demise of the grandfather threw the family estate into bis hands, or, fn tbe event of bis demise, bis children, if any, became his heirs. A leading lawyer of this city was given charge of the case, and he instituted such inquiries as resulted in the discovery of Mrs. Meyers, who years after the death of bertather had married her present husband, a German mechanic. Her mother and step father still survive with their grown up chil dren. She, being the only daughter ot Daniel Bank, expects to become heirets to the sixty thousand pounds which have been left by the decease of her grandfather. Bochsster Express.

Rouen, May 20. Letter to the New York Tribune: Four or five milesjbelow Rouen, on the right bank of the Seine.-partly hidden by thick foliage, lies the village of Uroisset, where Gustave Flaubert lived and has just died. A portion of his time he lived in Parii, but when he had work to do he sought the retirement of this village, and for a year and a half previous to his death had riot left it. On reaching the edge of the village a short time before his death, I asked my ' way to his bouse, over a fence, of a man who was turning up the soil. He gave the informa tion without hesitation, adding that any one ia the neighborhood could point out where Flaubert lived. "Then he is well known?" "As welt as the 'white wolf,' " which may be regarded as equivalent to the town pump. , "Then you know him?" - "Yes, Monsieur that is to say I know him without his knowing that I know him. I have seen him several ' times in his garden, dressed in his grand pasha costume. A high railing and double gateway shut in the habitation from the road and the river. A dried fawn's foot hung on one side of the gate, and was the bell-pull. There was be hind, a half acre of well kept garden, dotted with bushes and trees in full foliage.and a com fortable white dwelling ot two stories. Follow ing the wholesome Norman maid-servant who had opened the gate to me, I mounted to the second stoiy and was ushered into a large library, well garnished with books and easy chairs. A large table occupied the center of the room and contained manuscripts and notes arranged in order. Flaubert entered from an adjoining room. I found myself in pretence ot a large man large in England or America, where the mean stature is greater than in France with iron-gray hair, worn in the style of Benjamin Franklin, and ap pearing to have tne age which Yapereaa gave him fifty-eight. The lines of the face were round, and the hue was rubicund; the belly was Rabelaisian. But tbe eyes, which were of blue gray, very pure in color and intellectual in expression tem pered these indications. The dress de scribed by the peasant -as that of the grand pasha, -consisted of a ciestnut colored, monacal robe, with trousers to match, more baggy than fhose of a Zmave. A spotless, unstarched shirt with large open collar, was part of him, and thus clad he suggested an enlarged Walt Whitman. He had the break words and commanding manner of a cavalry colonel. But thu was only the shell; the in side of him was sweet and gentle. He said it was kind in me to come he had invited me, in the house of his best friend a short time before saying which he handed me cigar and filled a pipe for himself. In speak ing of the English, he thought that genius and imbecility met in them. France had never such a giant aa Bacon, and England appeared to have a monopoly of the kind. Shakespeare was another one of them, but he was afraid his country did not understand him. On the other hand, he did not think the French fool was as big a one as the English. He asked what kind of a man the fool of America was, and an effort being made to answer, he commented and added that there did sot seem to be a national fool among the Italians, who, from what he had seen of them in his travels, conducted themselves with 1 discretion and good sense. A roller seemed to have passed over the Italian people and leveled, them to the same meatal stature; among them was to be found neither the fool nor the genius. He confessed that he was fond of writing the story of thousands of years ago a confession unnecessary to one who had read Salambo and La Temptation de Saint Antoine. On being asked if he had read the Iff pat ia of Kingsley, he Owned tbat he had not, and added that he read very few stories, hia busi ness being rather to make them. He read much, but it was done to be utilized in hs literary work. He knew Edgar A. Poe (which he pronounced Po-ay, as Frenchmen generally do), through the remarkable trans lation of Baudelaire, who was a St. Pant to his American Christ, Poe, in a literary sense. It waa imposaiols to do more tor him tham Baudelaire had done. He had travailed with him, carried his cross, and died on his Calvary. - His knowledge of English was too. imperfect for him to appreciate Brit ish and American authors in their own tongue, and he had to rely on translations, which were often base counterfeits. He had, however, read some in the Revue de Deux Monde of Bret Harte by Bent son, which he thought must be clever. America was young, fresh and original, but it waa perhaps his (Flaubert's) misfortune to take especial inter est in old peoples and old things. The sun set of a civilization to him possessed a charm which did not belong to its sunrise. What America wanted was a history, which time alone could give her. Here a man well known in public life in France entered, ac companied by two ladies who were tned friends of long standing, and who called the author "Flau" tbe first syllable of his name. They were charming and superior women, familiar with all that was going on in France in a literary way, and had known him for twenty years. "It appears I am not a dangerous man." said he, locking at them and turning to us. "One of them went to sleep before my eyes a few minutes ago, instead of being in a nerv ous condition concerning my presence. Alas, what humiliation! This was said with the seriousness of Ar- temus Ward on the rostrum. One of the women asked him what he thought of the literary performance of a youth of twenty in the neighborhood. "If he unlearns his fine writing, an swered he, and studies hard, in .the course of seventeen years he may meet with suc cess.' ' That's a long time." "That is the time which it took me. I put the young man on the same footing as myself," was his prompt response. Flau bert' correspondence with notable co tem poraries is voluminous, and, as an illustra tion of it. a day or two before a relative of George Sand, with a view to publication, asked him how many letters he bad received from that distinguished woman, and on sort ing them he found one hundred and sixty, a portion of which in due time will be seen in print. I was informed tbat most of this cor respondence waa of a humorous kind. He was strong in his friendships, and easily af fected to tears by his striking proofs of them. One of his most devoted friends Turgeneff is, ii anyming, more easily anecxea in mis way than himself, Flaubert's expression of it being II est mem plu taeke que moi. Flau bert disliked prosaic natures as much as he liked artistic ones.-Ia other words he had an aversion to the bourgeoisie, and in conse quence, to bis neighbors in Rouen, who are cbitny engaged in trade and industry, his views of life were not the same as theirs. He devoted himself to lite rary art as the Trappisl consecrates himself to his vows, and all that he desired in a ma terial way was a quiet life, with its necessa ries. In his independence, he went so far as to say that he did not seek popular approval in hia books, and wrote for a small group. VVbea spoken to about Madame tsovary popularly considered his best work he was not flittered. "He -was not displeased at a compliment on Salambo, which is to literary antiquity something more than one ot Alma Tadema's paintings to pictorial antiquity; but when the Education Sentimentale was appreciatively talked of, his gratification wss evident, and it may be added that in popular estimation this work is the weakling of his oram. His system of working barred the way to facile production, and, as a whole, his work is a fine mosaic ot which each particular stone has been chiseled and polished to the last point before being inserted in its appro priate place. The ear had to be satisfied as well as the eye, and each sentence that he wrote was read aloud many times and changed as often, until the proper cadence was reached. Often he walked up and down his garden declaiming his sentences in search of harmonious sounds, or, as he himself ex pressed it, J hurle. When thus seen and heard by a peaceable bourgeois in front of the railing, the effect may be imagined. Silence and - solitude were necessary conditions. If his servant, unbidden, entered his room he impatiently broke out with his favorite oath. Tonnerre ex Macadam! and ordered her to retire. This comical fury was atoned tor by kindly speech at the following repast. This literary recluse often worked eighteen hours a day, and has been known to spend hours nn s. sino-le sentence. Indeed, time did not enter into his calculation; be worked as if he were to live a thousand years, tie naa a literary conscience tbat was inflexible. Some time ago one of the Paris managers, in view of the success of the novel of Madame B ovary, re- a nested him to write a play, which he did, spending on it one or two yara, for it was impossible- to harry him. When the play , Le Candida wv brought to the manager, he saw, in order to render it playable, certain changes would have to be made, and a sug gestion to this effect was made, to Flaubart, So -io"vered tl-t the phj t'i -slj be given u a v he tad v? uMs it ot tst nt all. Tfce manager endeavored in vain to persuade him the play was represented as it came from tbe haucs of its author, and met with signal failure. Flaubert hen made the mistake not uncommon in stylists, in supposing literary excellence to be essential to theatrical suc cess. It is natural to suppise that this un fortunate experience would have changed the opinion of Flaubert in this respect. It did not. He held to bis original idea, and be lieved that be was right, in the interest of art, in refusing to accept any modification He said in my presence: "Every man must do his best, and then stick to it. Ia other words, literary art to him was a religion. One of his intimate friends was Tbeophile Gautier, of whom he spoke as "Paurre Theo." They were united in friendship, but disunited aa method of working. Gantier wrote with an ease that excited the wonder of Balzac, furnishing good copy that waa far removed from the ' fatal facility school. Dlaubert reached his results through intellectual sweat and halting; Gantier put his ideas on paper, se renely and regularly. The effect of Flaubert's prose on tbe reader is like that on tbe spec tator in seeing a well-acted play from the front; the process et producing bis eaect was aa unsightly as that which goes on behind the scenes among the scene-shifters and stage carpenters. During my visit there waa some discussion of a political question of the day, in its moral aspects, in which the host took a large part, warming as he talked.' He became indignant, his voice irrew louder. and, unable to contain himself in a sitting posture, ne strode up and down tbe room, slapping his great thighs with emphasis. His furious denunciation, considered in connec tion with his pacific disposition, furnished a ccmic side to the picture. ' Here was a giant with the menacing air ot a feudal chief tain, who, in point ot tact, would not hurt a fly. Hence, when be uttered bis terrible oath, Tonnerre et Macadam I - hie listeners re mained un terrified. I saw the album in which was accumulated tbe conversation of two of the characters in the story he. was writing. These two types were of the Joseph Prudhomme kind, and the album was the receptacle of the commonplace and naively stupid talk which they might utter, the au thor using the phrases therefrom as required. Tbe last Prudhommian remark inscribed in is was: "Monsieur, il n'y aura pas d'abri cots eette annee." Tbe light of this prover bial wisdom was turned especially on politics and the weather. The political opinions of Flaubert, whatever they were, did not affect him in his friendships, for he was alike the friend of Prince Jerome Napoleon and ol Yictor Hugo. When Flaubert was struck down, he died in twenty minutes, and it was my melancholy privilege to ba one of tbe pall-bearers that aocompanied bis remains to a graveyard in the vicinity of Rnien. .

He came to Dr. L. r . etuart s ofhee for treatment, but the doctor pronounced the wound as not dan gerous. Brownsville Democrat, 9th: "A horrible and fiendish murder was committed within the old corporate limits of this city Thursday night. Frank King, colored, who has not been on good terms with his wife for some bme, and has made threats frequently that he intended to kill her, carried out his de signs last Thursday night by knocking her down with an old ax, dragging her out of the house,, wto tbe yard. and. disregarding her cries for mercy, cruelly beating her to death with a club. Houston Telegram, 8th: "On Friday nieht of last week Judge Winston and wife, ao companied by the son of Mr. O. C. Drew, were out on the Brszos upon a fishing and camping-out excursion. The hour for retir ing having arrived, they looked about for a suitable spot on which to pas the night, and having selected one began preparations for making the same comfortable for a night's rsst. Mr. Drew's little son gathered some moss, which he was in the act ot placing under his pillow, when he felt a sharp twinge at one of his fingers, and almost immediately discovered tbat he had been bitten by a water moccasin. With great presence of mind he slit the finger at the place of the bite and sucked the poison from the wound. Owing to this he is now well." Pine Bluff Pre, 8th: "Last Saturday morning Mr. Seabrook shot and killed Hen derson Craig, colored, on the 'Rob Riy' place in this county. The plantation belongs to Mr. Gabe Meyer, aad Mr. Seabrook has charge of and superintends the cultivation of the same. Craig was a hand on the place. It seems that he had failed to work during the week, and on Saturday morning, about five o'clock, went to the stable for the pur pose of getting a mule. Mr. Seabrook heard him, got up and forbade his taking the mule, telling him that as long as he had not worked during the week he eoild not have the mule that day. Craig replied in a very profane aad angry manner, and stooped to pick np something, either a piece ot iron or a brick, threatening to kill Seabrook then and there, when Seabrook fired with thn result as above stated." Fort Worth Advance, 8th: 'Yesterday morning, about eleven o'clock, ' at a switch five miles south of Dallas, cn the Central rail way, a most frightful accident occurred. A flat car was ttanding on tbe track of the switch, and on it was Charles Koch and Hen ry R'.der, section hands, stacking up tools. In order to avoid the north-bound passenger train, the section engine was switched off oa the side-track quite hurriedly, and violently struck the flat car upon which the men were standing, before they were aware of its near approach, throwing them roughly to the track. The engine kept moving and the wheels of a truck passed over the right side of Rider, tore the fl-?sh and scalp from the back of the head, mangled the shoulder and severed in twain the arm near the elbow. He is in a horrible condition and death is expect ed to ensue. Koch's left arm was broken in several pUcei and his hand frightfully mathe j. He will recover." Galveston Ntu, 7th: "W. B. Bonner, charged with the murder of J. Wheeler, editor of the Paris Banner, on the streets cf Paris, several months ago, was edtnitted to. five thousand dollars bail yesterday at Cooper, Delta county, his lawyers having succeeded in getting a change of venue. The circum stances of this tragedy are still fresh in the minds of many. On Monday morning Mr. Wheeler had left his boardinghouse with a bundle of papers under bis left arm and a cigar in his right hand. Bonner came up with a double-barrel shotgun. Mr. M'Dade, seeing Bonner, called to Wheeler taJook out. As Wheeler half turned round,'" Bonner shot him through the heart. This was in evidence. Strong talk of lynching was indulged io. but the community were assured that the majesty of the law would be vindicated, and tbat Bon ner would suffer the severest penalty. Wheeler was a bold, fearless writer, and some ar ticle had incurred the displeasure of Bonner, Clark and perhapa others, and subsequent 1 events pointed to a plot.

Letter to the New York Timet: May fair is; happy. London is as busy as can be; the season is in full swing. The weather ia delightful. It is very kind of tbe liberal government to arrange things so pleasantly. Some people complain that the streeta smell offensively; but some people are never satisfied. We have had no rain for weeks. In the country the farmers begin to fear the' seeds are suffering. London without raia is apt to become nearly as offen sive aa ' Cologne; though, by the way, that beautiful continental city is far cleaner and more wholesome tban it used to be. In Lon don we look to Aquarius to flush our sewers. Without rain, they emit objectionable odors through the gratings and otber "ventilators" which do not ventilate. Youjoaa drive a car riage and pair down our main sewer, if you desire such an excursion; bot in the time, ot drought I suspect you would be poisoned be fore you had finished the drive. Tbe city sur veyors will tell you that the odors of the Lon don streets just now arise more from the horse traffic than anything else, and I am inclined to believe a little in this excuse; for I noticed at Hyde Park Corner and alone the Row yesterday the same familiar stuffy, "stably" kind of atmosphere. Yet I did not observe that anybody turned np their noses. And what a sight it is ihe Row in the sea son ! Nowhere in the world will yon see such a wealth of horseflesh and harness. One ia disappointed rather ia the women. Now and then there is a carriage fall of fresh country girls, or a blonde mamma with a family of cherubs. But too often a gorgeous old crusted chariot is devoted to some ancient piaster or blue-blooded widow. I fear that the most noticeable women, as a role, are those who are said to be "off color," or who are suspected t J be "a trifle fast." "Ouida" would have you believe that all tbe ladies you see here are "in society.." There never waa a greater calumny. "Ouida" knows nothing of London society. She has never seen it. She haa looked at it through the window of the Langham bote). She has seen it at Hyde Park Corner. Sbe has observed some flash, beautiful woman on the grand tier at the opera, and imagined therefrom her "Lady Dolly" in Moth. "Ouida" lived a long time at the Langham and gave "men's parties." Nobody ever saw her in a real society house in Liondon, and 1 suspect nobody is likely to; and I should not be surprised if Moth and the other libels on English society are not her "revenges." Ldy Dolly" is as possible a creature in society aa "Skittles" or "Anony ma" would be.' Even the men would pro tect their wives, mothers and sisters from such a shameless strumpet as "Lady Dolly," and the society for the suppression of vice ought to protect tbe young people from the contam ination of Moth, just aa earnestly as it tries to make Bradlaugh'a Fruit of Philosophy a closed book to boys and girls. There is no calculating the harm that such writings do in this over-excitable, sophisticated, skeptical generation. IN THK PARK. . It is a comfort to those who wish to think the world is not so bad as it it painted, that Moth is just aa untrue in its supposed reflec tioss of London society as "Ouida 'a" American woman in Friendship is a gross libel on the United States. Tbe wonder is that decent women and respectable families admit this kind of book into their households. It waa a rough and primitive operation that old fash ion of burning books by tbe common hang man, and the woistof it is the common hang man waa generally given the wrong books for destruction; bat Moth, Nana and The Fruit of i'hilotophy deserve a similar pub lic attention, and the world would be the purer if "Ouida," Zria, Bradlaugh and their scorbutic admirers could be sent to sea in a ship warranted to go down after the manner of certain vessels used by the governors of troublesome communities before the days of parliaments and a free press. Let us for the moment imagine that these wallowers in fiith have been disposed of, and turn aside to glance at the humaa picture before us. Heaven knows that there is a dark side to it, as there are spots on the sua, but the sun is a lovely and divine institution in spite of its supposed blemishes. It has been said by some brightaKr or other that there ia no capital in Europe that possesses a play-ground so delightful as Hyde park, situated as it ia in the very heart of the town. The other day I walked from Millais's house at Kensington across the park. Henry Blackburn, the author of Academy Note, pointed out a spot which was to be tbe scene of a great picture for next year, entitled A London Forest. As we stood we could not see a house. Trees and grass everywhere, and an old man loading a cart with wood blown down during a high wind. Yet this is the heart of our great city of brick, where between three and four million people jostle each other daily for a bit of ground to stand upon, for a bit of work to live by. Those who do battle for existence represent the deep-flowing tide, and the froth dancing oa the surface is largely represented, I suppose, by the gay equestrians and carriage people who oscillate for an hour or two a day be tween Hyde Park Corner and the barracks. Since New York and other cities of the Union are largely represented nowa days among the lookers-on, not to say in tbe laxy crowd itself, it will be Interesting to tell my readers that the park has three fashionable periods during tbe day. lbe morning ride from about eiaht to eleven is the airing which many city swells and bankers give themselves. They are sup plemented by government officers, ministers and others. When the duke of Cambridge ia not ill with the gout he takes a "spin" along the " Lviiea' mile" ia a morning. Robert Lowe (who is now an earl) used to amble here on his sturdy nag. Henry Irving I have .nn. n.u. Ik. . Y?nJ V.lu wu vmf www urn mq UW, LU uuu a hk. often. At midday West End Indies and their children, lisping heirs to dukedoms, tart bun ters, heiress-hunters, the debutante and her chaperon, and stiff country ladies appear in the row, riding and walking, ihe mid day lounge is very popular this season. And to-day it reminds you of Boccaccio's garden on a large scale, Eden nnder a civilisad gov ernment and duly populated. Th) sua rushes out now and then from behind drifting clouds, flashing on beds of rhododendrons and mak ing bright patches under the tre. Tbe road way has been freshly watered. Pretty women and rosy children are scampering over the soft " tan" of the ride oa sleek horses and danng ponies. A few carriages creep dreamily by the corner, and scores ot well d.esaed la dies and gentlemen (not many of the latter) sit about under the treos, chatting, flirting, playing with time, varying their country life with the gaieties, intrigues and pleasures of a month or two in town. By one o'clock in tbe day tbe Row is crowded with riders men and women princes and commoners, duchesses, and misses whose fathers are mak ing their "piles" in the city. The prince of Wales is here; he rides what would be con sidered in America rather a heavy hack, but his royal highness is no light weight. He has an eay and graceful seat. The prince has qualities and accomplishments which the English will apprec ate in a king. They like to know the pi i nee can ride and fish and shoot and hunt, aad that he finds real pleas ure in these manly sports. The princess does not often ride, but onoe in a while she comes out with her husband at noon. On these oc casions the prince ia mostly attended by Francis Knolly. and she by Miss Koollys. By the way, at. Halle's concert, at which waa given the new Faust music, the princess was there unattended. She enjoyed the new work. It was conducted by Charles Halle himself, and at the close of the concert her royal highness intimated her pleasurs that he should conduct her to her carriage, an honor of which Halle seemed very proud. The prince looked in at Her Majesty's the same night; I happened to be at both places; one does happen to get into the habit in London of strolling into two or three enter tainments in one evening. Tbe opera, sin gularly enough, was Faust; it had been changed from Lohengrin, which is postponed until Saturday. I don't think the prince en joyed Gounod as much as his wife liked the new music op the same theme by Halle. Whether Costa was getting "slow or not, Mr. Mapleson's constituency, I fancy, do not care much for ArditL He had, however, a splendid reception the first night. His con ducting of Fautt was not all that could be desired. Nilssoa was as satisfactory as ever, and the stalls were delighted with the posing and attitudinizing of Del Puente, aa "Me phistopheles." All this, however, is aside from the Row.' Let us suppose that it is a chat under the shadow of that stalwart statue of "Achilles," which scandalized society when first it was erected. Mrs. Langtry is among the noon tide rider. She ia too self-conscious, this married belle of St James. A beauty with out doubt, but she has a habit ot turning np her lovely eye and posing her head as if sbe had been "fixed" for a photograph. Mrs. Corn wall is West rarely rides. 8ir George Wombwell on a cob is a familiar figure in the Row. Craat Minister used to be. Lady Riv ers has a perfect style, and her habit fits her at closely as the skin ot her impeachable hor The dscber cf CUrelatd haa a ocsy. f-au ;t (ioei c: go:4 1? ?9 tb; p;r eenspi among more imposing figure. Where is Count Schouvaloff? Last season he was very con spicuous here. There are many new riders this season.. The third fashionable time in tbe park during the day is from four to seven o'clock. Then the "ladies' mile" is elmot deserted, and the carriage-way is thronged. Everybody is here, literally everybody, ai d sometimes you msy see a "dead block" i f splendid equipages extending over half a mile, or a row of them drawn up by the sidewalk of equal extent, while a double row are promenading at a slow trot. The carriages by the sidewalk ha', a pulled up tbat the occupants may chat with friends and acquaintances who are on foot. Last evening there must have been five thou sand people sitting on tbe hired chairs in the shade of tbe trees, or walking about, leaning by the rails ti talk to "carriage people." Some of the ladies' dresses were lijjht aad pretty, but, aa a rule, the colors were somber. A London crowd even here looks dark and onpictoresque, compared with a continental one. Black enters very largely into the cos tumes of men and women. It is glorious sight to see the coaching clubs when they meet in the park and drive through an ave nue of carriages. Lord Beaconsfield was in the Raw one afternoon last week; Mme. Pat ti has only appeared once in the gay scene. The truth is, artists of the lyrio and dramatic stage have not much time for outdoor recrea tion. One would have to go through the fash ionable columns of the Morning Pott to give the names of the vast crowd now to be seen in Hyde park. Tbe midday ride fiaithes at two for luncheon, and the afternoon drive at sevea o'clock for dinner. Between these hours "tbe Upper Ten" have a world of work to do, dressing, calling, kettledrums, "morn ings, "at homes, picture galleries, mati nees, learned societies, and a thousand other incidents being crowded in before dinner; and after dinner there are operas; evening recep tions, balls, and musical parties, and the de butante often finds herself being driven home at daylight. Early workmen meet her car riage in the comparative quiet streets, and it would probably be consoling to them if they knew that she is often far more tired and weary than they are after a day's work and a few hours "overtime THK BlSBliUN COHFEItEXCE. .

The statement received last evening confirming the reports of an ac tual outbreak of a civu war in tbe Argentine confederation, and that President Aval laneda had left Buenos Ayres with an army; are probably exaggerated. A private tele gram, dated Buenos Ayres June 8tb, says tbat the Southern railway company has stopped its train service, so as to prevent the seizure of its rolling stock by either party, and the national government has removed its store of gunpowder from the city. The recipients of this telegram construe its statements as an evidence that President Avallanedi is still in control of affairs, and is prepared for any emergency. As the presidential election will occur to-morrow, apprehension of a conflict probably lead to precautionary measures by President Avallaneda, which meager tele graphic statements have exaggerated into an actual outbreak of hostilities.

The wheat and oat crop with us is almost worthless, but the corn crop is fa' ne and in good condition, and the prrspect is better than it has been for several years, having been well worked during the dry weather ia May. Cotton, owing to tbe recent heavy rains, is in a very discouraging condition. Our bottom lands, to which we look for our heaviest yield, have been twice overflowed in the past tew days, doing immense damage to the crops, more especially cotton, as it is small, and much will be lost in grass before it will be dry enough to work it should the wet weather stop at this, but the indications are for a continuance, as we had a heavy fall of rain tn-dav.

In Jnstioe . to those who may suffer as I bare goffered, and as a grateful acknowledgment of the cure I hare received from the use of the CCTKiraa. Reiudixs, I voluntarily make the following statement: I have had Salt Rheum on my body and on my leg In a very aggravated form for eight yearn. No kind of treatment, or medicine, or doctors, during this time, did me any permanent good. My friends in Maiden and elsewhere kuowlhat I have I wen a great sufferer, and that my condition at times has been such as to make me despair of ever being able to find a cure, or even a relief. In fart, when I be gan the use of t'niciu, my limb was ao raw and tender that I eould not bear my weight on it with out tbe skin cracking and bleeding, and was Obliged to go about on crutches. I commenced to t se the Ct'TicURA in April, and at once realized ita bene ficial e fleets. It gasdually drew the inflammation and humor to the surface, and as fast aa it appeared, healed it. At times large quantities would come to the surface, causing burning heat inflammation, swelling and Itching, which, under the constant use of Ounce ra, would rapidly subside and heaL Each time thexe outbreaks grew less and lesa severe and finally disappeared, leaving me perfectly cured. I used theCrmcuBA and Soap tire mouths and took the Resolvent most of the time, which wtre the only remedies I used. I think the Kssolvot s very strengthening and purifying medicine to take in such extreme cases as mine, because the illiawss is so weakening to the srou-m. Very gratefully yours, Mfci Ai B.BEOWN.
