ANOTHER COMPBO- 4PPEIT, FOR at, The Democracy of Tennessee in drifting down, down the Niagara, and unless some thing be done it will reach the falls on the id of November. Cannot something be done to avert the awful crash, to prevent the fatal plunge? In yesterday's Appeal we made an earnest plea for compromise, for such conees aiona as would save the" Democratic party from certain and inevitable defeat and pre vent the election of Alvin Hawkins, the most vindictive; and malignant Radical which the war deposited in our midst to rob and perse cute a defenseless people. The invocation of the Appeal was yesterday bailed by the Democrats of Memphis with an emphatic ap proval. It will be seen from another column that it is most cordially indorsed by a lead ing Democrat, prominent in the councils ol his party. At an hour like the present it is shameful, it is scandalous, it is criminal to talk about high-tax and low tax Democrats, Wilson Democrats and Wright Democrats, submission Demo crats and anti-subniission Democrats. Talk about factions when a public robber is about to polule the gubernatorial chair! Engage in petty squabbles while Horace Maynard is marching to the senate! If the Democracy of Tennessee has not eaten of the insane root anil gone stark mod it will call a holt, sound the parley and nnder a flag of truce agree upon an armistice which will enable the war ring factions to turn their guns upon the common enemy they have so long fought and 'which they have abundant cause for hating. The condition of the Democratic party is surely by no means radiant with hopefnl anticipations. To rally the entire Republi can vo,U? of Tennessee srvi a L-.-..J . i It ILaa. without straggling is the task to which the Republican ore devoting all their energies ; and they htve been successful, as they openly proclaim that Hawkins's election is no longer a question of doubt. Without a successful effort in the same direction on the part of the Democrats, both Wilson and Wright are defeated. It is useless to discuss the causes which led to this division or to locate the blame. It is sufficient to recognize existing facts and deal with them according ly. Whenever selfish motives have found a lodgaient in the policy which has guided die party to the point where defeat is certain, a magnanimous surrender of personal desires and individual purposes that jeopard the sue- than ever? At least troni iu,uw 10 ij,uw a a t TMKn tmm Democratic votes were not c. .0. .u 1876 on oceountof the influensc of the canal ring, the many personal enemies he had, and the numerous charges that were made against him. Still Mr. Tildi n carried the State by over 30,000 votes. The best informed people of New York concede laat General Hancock will receive every Dcr.iratic vote that Mr. Tilden did not get, and many besides. The resistration in the large cities shows an enormous Democratic increase, and Republi cans themselves concede that Brooklyn and New York City will give Hancock a majority f snnnn The probabilities are that it will' be over 90,000. It is im .....;). 1.. for the rural districts to ,VJ- overcome such a vote. The Dem ocrats of New York were never so thoroughly united, and with proper effort will carry the State without a doubt. But New York and the concedes! south have 173 votes. New Jersey did not vote for Lincoln in 18(50. Even in the utterly hopeless year of 1864 it refused to give its electoral vote to Lincoln. It per-ni-ted in 1868 by voting against Grant, and in 1876 Mr. Tilden's majority was about 13, 000. McClellan's majority for governor in 1877 was about 12,600; the majority of his predecessor (Governor Beadle) in 1874 was 13,000. Both United States senators from New Jersey are Democrats both men of great wealth and identified with nianufae tures and commerce. Why should New Jersey not remain true to her old record? Thirteen thousand majority on the small vote of New Jersey is equal to over 30,000 on the vote of Indiana, or 70,000 on the vote of New York. New Jersey Is a Democratic State. But with New York and New Jersey in line, only three rote are needed to elect Har.cuck. If the Democrats will rise to the occiision they can get these three votes easily, either in Maine or in Connecticut, California, Col orado, Oregon or Nevada. The Presidential battle is not yet won or lost by either party. It will altogether depend on the best fight made between now and November. Not the best man, but the best fight will win. Demo crats are not cowards to surrender because tliiv are disappointed in Indiana. Thev have indomitable pluck and pertinacity, and have already rallied from the de moralization fof an nnxpected re verse. When the Republicans lost Maine, they did uot sit down, fold their arms and talk about disbanding the solid north. On' the contrary, they renewed the fight with tireless vigor ami energy, and the victory in Indiana wa the result. Let the result of the Presidential election terminate as it may, it might as well be understood first as last that the -solid south will remain inflexibly Democratic. Our people learned iu sorrow what the rule of a solid Republican south cost them, and sine they are prosperous ami happy und'. r the rule of a solid Democratic south they have no idea of restoring to pow er the thieves who persecuted and plundered them. At the fire of the first gun a militia captain advised his men to take core of them selves, but as for himself, as ho was a little lame, he would icfrcat now. With the ire of the first gon in this grea; battle for the Presidency, the lemocraU of the 6011U1 have ev:'. appearance mm uie pre-eminence England has acquired is passing away, and that other peoples arc becoming serious rivals. Discovery and invention have spread trade anil manufactures widely through France and Germany, each of which has specialties of its own in which England can not compete. The United States, however, is proving her most formidable competitor. With all her improvements England has never been able to get over her love for what is old and established, and the best inventions have, at their origin, len regarded with jealousy, and often opposed with bitter hos tility. Heavy and awkward tools and im plements are retained when improved ones have been adopted elsewhere, and there is a conservative love for what use has made familiar that prevents the bold freedom of invention that would otherways manifest itaclf. In this country these obstructive con ditions do not exist. Unfettered by old preju dices and narrow traditions, a good thing i none the less welcome to us because it i new. In fact, when a thing is new we take a pleasure in contributing to its success, and obtaining recognition for its excellence. Tl ouen-neara r.ngnsn expression what was good enough for my father is good enough for me, has no currency with us. The con sequence is that our inventors are unfettered. They try .often at very eccentric things, but the assurance that any valuable novelty will be readily adopted encourages new efforts anil fresh combinations. The result is beginning to show itself in a tendency to the displace ment of England from the controlling po tion she has held as owner and manager of the best and greatest system of workshops in the world. The English are beginning to perceive the svmntoms of a decline in her rank as inventor and manufacturer, and are entering on inquiries ss to the reason of the change. A commission recently appointed by their parliament upon agricultural inter e-:.- sent two of their assistants to the United States, and they found reasons that surprise those who have been shut up in ant quated notions. The commissioners plainly tell their countrymen that "good machinery and improved implements are much more common on American than on English farms, " and not only so, but "the tools are lighter, better shaped and better mad They are also told that "the readiness wit! which tillers of the so 1 in America take to machinery would surprise some of our far mers labor-saving machinery being re garded as absolutely r.ccessary even on small farms."

We are consequently most for ward in harvesting, they in the cnltivatin implements. Since the world's fair in Lost don first opened British eves to what American skill wan doing, their mauu facturcrs have endeavored to equal ours, and to-day they acknowledge their inability to keep up with us. and our agricultural implement trade has con sequeutly increased no less than wonderfull The London TutM said a month ago, in a tone of grumbling petulance apropos to an agricultural exhibition Ixmdon had got up: "Both the United States and Australia send this country enormous quantities of the heavier or sole leather ready tanned, and some comes from Singapore.

Such j apostacy and truculent subserviency would j disgrace the southern people in the eyes 01 the civilized world. Such humiliation, ;n stead of appeasing Radical fanaticism would add contempt to their hatred, and furnUh an incentive for new persecutions. The Dem ocrats are asked to dissolve the solid south because it is the only way to dissolve the solid north. A patent-right ought to be se cured for logic without delay.

At the Boal-street bridge the train was stopped and champagne was handed around, then the tram started and in due time reached the Mississippi am Tennessee railroad depot. The excursionists visited the immense cotton-shed west of the the dct, the machine shops, roundhouse and ear factory, where several passenger coaches were in course 01 construction, wn returning to the train, Captain J. Harvey Mathes, on receiving a glass 01 wine, arose and proposed the health of Major M. Burke, superintendent of the road, and who had secured that for which he had lor fifteen years oeen desirous to bring about a railroad con nection through Memphis. Major Burke responded by saying he thought the day for making a through con nection had been put off too long. He de sired it not only as an employe of the railroad but as a citizen of Memphis. He had been ably seconded in the enterprise by the citi zens and the city officials, and to them was due the accomplishment of the project. For vears Arkansas cotton has been shipped via Belmont, over the Iron Mountai 1 railroad, but now Memphis will get a fair share of this trade, which could not be done without th;B connection. He thanked the citizens and mem bers of the city council for their co-operation, which would result in advancing the interests of the city. Mr. Fred R. Brenan projiosed a toast "New Memphis and its Prosective Progress under the Taxing-District form of Govern ment," and calledupon Judge C W.IIeiskell, city attorney, to respond. Judge Heiskell said he believed the Taxing-District plan the only true system of mu nicipal government. He did not believe any municipal governoict a good one that had the power of taxation eontorred upon it, or hav ing power to contract a debt. He believed that other cities would adopt this form of government, and heiejarded itas strange that cities have never understood or discov ered the simple yet correct theory of muni cipal government. Under the old system im mense debts were contracted, irresponsible and often unprincipled men were elected to office: evervthing was complicated. Under the new plan of the Taxing-District no debts can be incurred without having the money on hand to pay them. All the creditors must look to the fund which covers their claims for payment, and they cannot bring suit against the government for such clainir they can only bring suit against the govern ment to compel its officers to appropriate the proper and specific fuud to the pavment of the debts incurred under that fund. We have discovered the only mode to govern a city in the proper monuer; hence the people of Memphis are bound together. The city can incur no debts, and he offered as a sentiment, "Let her be perpetual." Major M. Burke offered a toast "The steamboat interest of Memphis." Commodore Ad Storm, superintendent of the Memphis and St. Louis packet company, re turned his thanks. He had always fen ailtui interest in the thiough railroad connecticn at Memphis and had been one of the lirst to proiiose it, although it was opposed and con demned by the river community. He claimed that that which was for the general interest of all pep:de should lie accomplished. The steamboat line which he repeeeeated was amicable to all railroad interests. His line would lose more than any other iuttrest by this connection, but his line would not throw or turn a stone in the way of Memphis prog ress. Lome weai come woe, ne was lor me interests of Memphis and her railroads. Mr. Calvin Vance said tousled the "Press," that had aided the progress ol Mcm yhis, Captain J. Harvey Mathes responded by saying that the press had done its duty by favoring the interests of all classes 01 citizens. The prts- had never attempted to build up any interest at tue expenjcpi another, When a voung journalist, lie had favored a railroad extension through Memphis, and the erection of a union depot, all ol which will soon be realized.

Ellie herself may be close behind, with some dust of flour on her floating, flossy hair. She is not a model housekeeper, by any means; but somehow she manages to make things deliciously comfortable for the big-handed husband, to whom she is the embodiment of all prettiness and daintiness on the face oi the earth. He is soon out of sight. Heigh, ho, there comes Mr. B. How gray his htir has grown since that last stroke of paralysis. How Mrs. B.'s dark motherly eyes will brighten as she sees him at the gate. He will pass the grown-up, graceful daughters going straight to the apartment where he is most likely to find the companion wko is dearer llian daughter or son. Ah, that is a happy home. Poverty was with them once." It opened wide the door, and the wolf was almost there. They were shabby and toil-burdened. There was sickness some times; there once was death. A little coffin went out the door, and the husband and wife exchanged mute looks of agony over the lit tle emptv crib, tie plain, laded little gar ments that were folded away with trembling fingers. After long years wealth, accidental legacy wealth, had come. Golden years of: a growing household, a marriage of the first born sou, a golden-haired babv grandchild then death again; a fair, graceful girl who had just left the accademic halls with the graduate's hard-won laurels. The parents knelt together by the dark rose-wood coffin, with its heavv silver handles, and they re membered the ancient grief for the babv who had died thirty years before. They re membered the little square room, with its bare walls and tloor and the plain pine box in which their darling lay, thirty years ago. Which will go first, I wonder? Ah, how 1 should hate to sec the old man pass a id know that there is no Mrs. B waiting for him at the other end of the street Mr. P. comes and almost passes out of sight while I fumble with mv old memories.

Ah. there come the women-worn era. Thev, too, are going "home" (?) to din nor Miss C, the headiclerk in at G.'s shoe store. Her hair is brushed back uneompro misingly behind her ears, no bangs for her or dainty waves that would but soften the pale face. People would say she wanted to mar ry, you know, for bangs and waves are undis puled signs. So she makes herself as unat tractive as possible, and the trade lines have encircled the corners ot her lips, red, kissa ble lips they were once, but the time for such possibilities have passed. This enlightened age gives work to such as her, but "home," the woman's true kingdom, it cannot give. Miss A., one of the milliners at P.'s, comes tripping along. She does not eschew bangs. Her dress fits daintily, a heavy necklace of rolled-gold hangs around her neck, suspend ing a loekel upon her jK-rson.

Miss Crandall, cashier, is also in custody. The It f and Fall of the Swindle. On Friday morning, before 9 o'clock, the opening hour, a number ot women had gath ered m trout of the house on r.ast lirookline street, and awaited anxiously the opening of the doors. This was but the advance guard of the army that was to follow. From that hour until 12 oclock, when the bank was closed for an hour, there was such a throng besieging the place that even the redoubtable Mrs. Howe was compelled to retire to tier private apartments, leaving the apartments in charge of her trusty aids, Misses Gould and Crandall. V hue the former retained the serene and insinuating manner which never deserts her, the latter became even more cross and crusty than usual, and gave aciduous replies to questions asked. The vig- lant seutrv who stands guard over the outer doors, the only male member visible of this lose corporation, paced nervously up and down the hall, and he permitted none to pass who were not vouched lor as proper persona to be admitted within the charmed circle. When the crowd on the corner would become so large as to attract the attention of curious passers-by, he wonld dart out and entreat the women to disperse. inis they would gra eiously do lor there day who were not in hearty sympathy with .l J 1 . iti.!1. tne company aim its managers. win e a majority of those who besieged its doors were there to draw interest and withdraw their money, and thousands of dollars were re moved in this way, a large minority were making deposits, and it is a question whether there was not as much money deposited as there was withdrawn. Manv who went there ith the intention of drawing out their money were so impressed by the confident manner 01 the women in charge, the display of money made, and the notification that if they took out their savings they would be de barred from ever again partaking of the bene fits of the company, that they chose rather to take the risk of losing than to be deprived of the eight per cent, per month which they re ceive in advance. One woman was heard to wish that she had $1000 to deposit, and another freely denounced the banker? and brokers, who, through the press, were trying to throw discredit ou "a noble charity."

The other daughter grew up to be a woman of thirty-seven years, and died. - The boys turned out to be as expert and accomplished in deviltry as was their mother. After thirteen years of life with Dr. Solomon she left him for something more congenial. During his domestic experience with her it is said that she gave the doctor many an hour of anguish, and her escapades cost him manv thousand dollars. One of the boldest exploits with which she is credited was as follows: After leaving the doctor she engaged herself as a cashier or clerk to a young grocery and provision dealer doing business on High street, in the city 01 ITovidence, the young merchant and Mrs. Solomon, though she did not probably call herselt Mrs. Solomon, soon knew each other so well that the former felt confident that he could take his genial clerk into ins trust, and tortnwitn proceeded to make out a bill 01 sale ot the store and all the business, and turned the same over into the hands 01 the woman of course only for safe keeping, to secure it trom his creditors. He did not mean to make an actual transfer, but simply had employed this dishonest method of securing himself against creditors. Scarcely had a tortnignt elapsed trom the moment that she got control of the property and goods when she sold out everything under the ham mer as well as under her bene! actor's nose and departed. The young merchant "could not interfere without compromising himself seriously, and it is represented that he had to accept his defeat as gracefully as he could under the circumstances. This occur rence in the life of the woman only illustrates to what depths of rascality she can descend. The next move of the woman was to marry a house painter in Providence named William K. Lane, who had a wife living at the time. She had one son by Lane, and named him William, after the father. This boy inherited the evil ways of his mother and lather, and he was convicted of committing a rape on a young girl at Attleboro, and was sentenced to a long term at Taunton jail, which he served out. Lane went off to sea and died. Then the woman married another painter, named Florimond L Howe, at Manchester, and be came Mrs. Sarah E. Howe. At the time she married Florimond Howe (twenty years ago) she was telling fortunes at Manchester, hav ing established herself there some time pre viously as a clairvoyant. She told, or pro fessed to tell, fortunes with cards. Mr. Howe s relatives and friends strongly opposed the match, and it came off in spite of all that was done to thwart it. For nearly fifteen Tears the woman is lost to the sight of those who knew her in her youth, though an occasional glimpse of her is caught as she shines out in some bold and distinguishing piece of deviltry. She spends her time ostensibly in fortune-telling. In New York State her husband, Florimond, was taken lor a soldier, and sent to the front at the time of the war. By some engineer ing she procured his discharge, and shortly afterward the couple went to South Boston mercy of Mr. wealthy citi- He took care of the couple, gave them a house on F street, furnished it, and gave them a chance to live respectably. But Sarah's inclination to play pranks cropped out, and immediately there was trouble between her and her brother-in-law. She had a peculiar faculty of making those who listened to her believe every word she uttered, while she could represent every one else as the blackest of liars. She always spoke of herself as being a most wrongfolly-abused woman. She circu lated damaging stories about Mr. Manly Howe, her benefactor, and the troubles that he has had with this woman were fully ventilated in the local press at the time, whole columns having been published about this scheming adventuress. The trouble briefly reviewed, was substantially as follows: She openly went into court at Boston and instituted a suit against Mr. Howe, her hus band's brother, whom she charged with steal ing a promissory note for $10,000, which sum of money, she alleges, she had previously loaned him, and tor which ne had given her the note.

If any one doubts this assertion, let them figure it out for them selves. For instance: A woman who wishes to deposit $200 receives a book in which she is credited with $200, when, in reality, she leaves in the bank but $102, the interest for three months in advance, amounting to $48, being returned to her ere she leaves the premises. Three months from date she calls again and draws another $48, and again in six and nine months repeats the pleasant visit with like results, producing at the end of one year the sum of $192, or $40 more than the principal originally deposited. "At this rate," exclaims "the reader, "the bank would soon pay out every dollar of cash held as principal, and bo heavily in debt be sides." Very true, provided the interest be taken away by the depositors as fast as earned; but the fact is tnaC eager to still further profit by the scheme, many women immediately reinvest the interest, and by so doing do not cripple the bank. The amount of money which this concern owes to its de positors, or, iu other words, its liabilities, are something almost beyond computation when their rate of interest is considered. place Memphis abreast of other cities.

We should not top to talk al.. nt State credit in a contest in which the Kadicals expect to defeat us by proving that we are assassins. We should forget our desire for low taxes when a party is about to ascend to power which makes high taxes one of its cardinal principles. The Democrat lacks patriotic sagacity, prudence and political common sense who listens to the syren song lisped about the strength of Wright and Wilson. Both will receive a large vote, but neither will get enough to defeat Hawkins. Then why c.ntiin.c a fruitless canvass? Wilson is a young man. He cannot afford defeat, for if, by his bolting, Hawkins's election is se cured, his political career will come to an abrupt conclusion. Nothing but stupid ob stinacy, or a blind political conception of the real situation will prolong a contest which defeats the Democratic party on the second of November, and severs it for years to come. It is hoped that the veterans of the Demo cratic party men who have grown gray in iu service will spend the present week in a patriotic effort to prevent the transfer of Toauessee to the rule of Hawkins and Maynard. Charging the bolters with re pudiation and a determination to rule or ruiu, or the State-credit Democrats with being in the pay of the bondholders and rail roads is not becoming the dangers that im peril the Democratic party.

We will' always have two parties, and the Democratic party will be one, nd the need of the present hour among Democrats is courage.

Wc say to the readers of lh Appeal, in truth and candor, that we would exclaimed, "the first concession was our ruin." Lot tho Democrats of Uie south dis band their organization, join the Republicans and furnish helves for the axes of the Claytons, the Kelloggv, the Wellscs. the Bub locks, the Amesex, At l'attersons and the Spencers, and as they see them ijii cleaving down all thst th. jr hold most dear they, lou, j will bo forced to confess that what was con ceded in a spirit of patriotism has been their ruin. If the people ot' tbe south uescrt the Democratic "party and dispense with their tried and (rusted- leaders who have lead them out of the Tyilderness of Radical corruption and persecution into !he sunlight of Democratic prosperity aud tranquility', they w ill display the idiotic folly of the sheep who, in negotiating peace with the wolves, agreed to dispense with the services of the shepherds. Xew concessions will inspire Hew exactions. We are familiar with the great throbbing heart of the southern people, and we know they will spurn with scorn everv suggestion looking to their transfer to the Republican party. The south was . solid for Grant in 1868 solid against the Democratic party; but tliis solidity only increased Radical ferocity and the twist of the thumb screws. If in 1808 a solid Republican south lid not mitigate Radical malignity, why will it molify Radical hale in 1880? In Uie Pres idential olection of 1872 the proposed experi ment ol dividing the solid south was adopted nine States voted for Grant and six for Greelev. Notwithstanding this division the north was sUU aolid in its opposition and hatred, and a similar division now or in the near or remote future will only add contempt to a malignity increased by a confession of guilt. But why argue this question further since the Democrats of the south have no idea of drinking the poison which has been commended to their lips. Instead of accept ing the ignominious surrender which luia been recommended, they will hang their ban ners upon Uie outer walls in this and all fu ture contests with the party whose name is synonymous with corruption. To surrender power and the control of the offices in the south now t the Republican party as advised is virtually to surrender it to the most ignorant and illiterate class, or, what is worse, to vile and unprincipled demagogues, who, for selfish pur poses, deceive and mislead them. It U the colored vote, led by unprinciplcd knaves from thesjums of north ern society that forces the south to be solid.

The young girl was brought into the house of Mrs. Noyes, at No. 63 (1 street, South Boston, by Mrs. Howe, who re lated a most pitiful story about the girl, whose name was given as St. Claire.

The members of Uie legislative council had ably supported him, and he could not have gotten along was it not for the support of the citizens and their able and e!i,;be advisers. These men deserved far more credit than did in-. Commodore Ad Storm and Major M. Burke made short talks on the subject of the rail road connection and river interests, after which wit e, cake and liquors were handed around, and the train nioved on back up the river landing to il.e foot of Washington street, where the guests took leave of Major Burke, wishing the short-line road aloug the river front all the success imaginable.

Just as there are notes and combi nations that harmonize and uotes.and com binations that discord, so there are human sympathies and human talents that accord, and human sympathies and human talents that will not combine to produce harmony of lieing. As in mere material nature so in this dcmi-materinl human life, the eleclric blood heats draw together the very affinities that creative wisdom dcsigiieu KX iiiiiiv. men mere is combination, then there is harmony, then there is a happy home. I have known oue or two of those blissful kingdoms. 1 have seen with these eyes of flesh, one or two happy homes, and the vision has remained, anchor ing my child-faith iu humanity. They, the builders of these homes, had not been educa ted lievond the despised old science of "fall ing in love." There had been no question oi whether lie had as much money as she had, or whether she bad as much pedigree as he had. Two persons, masculine and feminine, had become intimately acquainted with each other.

When the spiriuud uni.m is per fect I dare to declare that it is not in ihe power of the ileshly physical to jar the rhythm of married happiness. These peo ple were married people, men and women who built and planned these "happy homes." 1 cannot imagine a home without a woman, a wife. 1 cannot imagine a home without a man, a husband.

Header, step down from your stilts! You ve been looking completely over the head of Mrs. President Howe in your anxiety to see this phenomenal official ol a most phenomenal institution. Picture t yourself a woman, short, fat and ugly, with one eye deformed and nearly as deaf as a post; a woman who dresses richlv, yet unbecomingly, uses execrable EnglisFi, and can scarcely write her own name legi bly; imagine all this, if you can, and you will then have a faint idea of Mrs. President Howe. Madam, we beg pardon lor the free dom with which we descant upon your per sonal charms; but, remember, a greal philan thropist and saint, who yesterday was a beggar and a sinner, must expect to be no less an object of attention and comment than the Presidential candidate who invites the lances of his opponents by accenting a nomi nation. By her preposterous methods of do ing business this woman has invited the crit icism of every thinking mau and woman in the land. Mrs. Howe evinces an inborn pas sion for an ostentatiousdlsplay of her wealth. During the summer of 187'J, on the occasion of the fiftieth birthday of her husband a nondescript and harmless sort of a man, over six feet in hight she entertained at a Kevere Beach hotel, a large company of people whom she had never lie?ore met, xiueed to gether iram hither and you, so as to "have a crowd to see Uie presents." Her readiness to purchase showy articles has made her an ob ject no less of profit than ridicule among the trades-people with whom she has d.er.It. Mrs. Howe is a JQvir;l &.,ugouti-natsiTcd body, aud, it is whispered, "hot so deaf' by half as she pretends to be." MEN as TTTrfjj AS WOMEN. It has leaked out that a large number of business men in the city, learning during the past vear of the immense interest PaJf oc capital invested, have raiW w 1 1 ... tueir power, even moriragicy biocas of goods, hot'sehLk', iumituro anu personal property; and, with the aid of their female relatives or friends, have placed all in Mrs, Howe's hands. Their argument is: "If the thing only runs a year I get back my capital, and make over twenty per cent, sure; and, if it runs two years, I get back two and a half times as much as 1 originallv put in, aud still have my original plant left. That's bet ter than I can do in any business under the sun." And it is rumored that, if a crash comes, many a man In good standing iu busi ness and social circles will be rumed. Fl'LLV ONE MILLION IK1LLAM OM PErOSTT. The deposits are not. as manv imagine, all from the middle and lower classes. Some of Boston's first families are interested in the weal or woe of this institution in funis vary ing Irom 51000 to $10,000 each. It is esti mated that the amount of monev obtained from depositors by Mrs. Howe during the past three years is tully 1,000,000. It is a tact that on the second Jay of the late run the "bank" paid out to alarmed depositors the sum of d0,000 a mere bagatelle to them. as they smilingly assured our open-mouthed, wondering scribe. The bank has had on hand, uninvested and Iving around loose, so to speak, upward of $150,000 within the past three months, and though seriously crippled of late, it is believed that their resources are ample to carry them through, if the storm is not too severe. MRS. HOWE'S VN8AVORY RECORD. The woman, Mrs. Sarah E. Howe, who call herself the president of the "bank" was born nearly sixty years ago in the city of Provi dence, Rhode Island. According to the state ments of persons who have been intimately acquainted with her and with her family, her mother, Nancy Birr, was the daughter of John Birr, a wealthy Khode Islander, and one well known in Providence as an auc tioneer. Her father, who was never married to the then young Birr woman, was a Deputy Sherifl Chase, ol Swansey. Mr. Birr, Miss Birr and her paramour, Deputy Chase, are now all deceased. When the chil l Sarah was born she was taken into the family of Mr. Birr, and there raised as his grandciiild; but the old man was so incensed at the manner in which his daughter Nancy hail been se duced by Chase that he would" never consent to a marriage between ihe loveis. As Sarah grew up she developed very fast, and was what might be termed a precocious child. At the age of fifteen years she ran away from home and went to the little vil lage of Seekonk, Massachusetts, with a man known as Dr. Solomon, and there the pair w-ent through ihe form of a clandestine mar riage, the ceremony lieing performed by Chillis Luther, an eliler of the Baptist church that was in lieheboth. The elder had come down esiiecially to perform Uie cerenionv. Just as soon as the girl had grown ofd enough to display the true inwardness of her character, and exhibit her tastes and propen sities, she became a source of unmeasured trouble and sorrow to her mother, Nancy Birr, and the latter often said to the way ward girl: "S.nrah, you will drive me mad if you continue your wild, reckless life." But the heartless girl coula not bring her pas sions under control, and her scandal ous conduct continued in spite of her mother's admonitions, and it was only a short lime after her marriage with Dr. Solomon, the Indian physician, thai her in existence, and it has been asserted that more than one good girl was ruined through some unknown influence that was said to lervade this agency.

Territorial Enterpruc: "Moses Hasbrook, who has been for some two months engaged at fishing near the north end of Pyramid Lake, tells of a discovery recently made by himself and two other fishermen which may yet prove valuable. They had been out on the lake fishing one evening and remained uutil about 4 crclock, when it began to blow heavilv and rrow uncomfortably cold. Thev ran their boat to shore, and, having blankets and provisions with them, sought the shelter in Ihe lee of a large hill, building a fire and making a camp in a little valley or basin. During the night their camp-fire spread into the grass and brush covering the bottom of the valley, and burned a eU-eak two or three yards in width to quite a distance from the camp. They observed the fire soon after it started, but knowing that it ronld do no harm, did not take the trouble to turn out of their blankets for the purpose of extinguish ing it. Some time toward 2 o'clock in the morning Mr. Hasbrook says he was awakened by a great outcry from his companions, ana, mum to his astonishment, found all about him as bright as day. In a moment he saw that the light came from several jets of flame from five to twelve feet in height. All proceeded to the spot and found no less than nine of these jets within a circle of about five rods. The gas was found to proceed from little blowholes from a half to an inch in diameter, and seemed in no way different from such holes as are usually seen on the deserts. The gas lets shot up with s gooi deal ol lorce and made a sort ot crackling noise.
