The Pemocrats of this Congressional district are satisfied with the outlook. The canvass thus far has been quiet and undemonstrative, but the proposed joint discussion between the party nominees will no doubt give new life and zest to the contt. The nomination of Zaeh Taylor has created general dissatisfaction among the colored voters of Shelby county and many of them will cast their votes for James M. Harris. Even if , Hamilton or Randolph had been nomi nated Harris would have polled many col ored votes. But now that the staunch old Iarty leaders have been repudiated and a man foisted upon them who has never fought a battle for them it is safe to say that Harris will carry Shelby county by a ' "IiaudaOlUU UlllJUruy. In fast tkara is no man in Shelby county so popular with the colored pro pie as James M. Harris, and this is not surprising, for no man has ever been ' a better friend to tho colored race than he has been. Born and reared in the county he has been their counselor, their friend, their neighbor, their best advisor in boyhood and manhood. He has aided them in every eoneoivable way indorsed their papor, and advanced them money when they have been in dis tress, and has courageously etood by their rights in every emergency. If elected to Congress, as he surely will be, every colored, man in tho Tenth Con gressional District, in the State, and throughout tho South, will have a guar antee for the protection of his rights. Two years ago Mr. Harris arrayed him Holf against many , of his white friends and against, an aspirant who was his per sonal friend and of his own race and color, and bravely fought tho battle of a colored man for the position of coal oil in spector. Mr. Harris enlisted in behalf of the colored applicant with all the ardor of his enthusiastic nature. The deep eon corn ho mamfenbetl In th eonteet and in the failure to accomplish the object so sear to his heart shows his friendship for the colored raco. The colored peo ple of this dint riot, and especially of Shelhy county, cannot bo driven into the . support of a stranger, whose life is sig nalized by no deeds of kindness for the race whose votes he seeks. The blacks cannot be la.iheJ into the support of Taylor against such a man as Harris, who has stood by them as a lifelong friend. No man in this district. whether Democrat or Republican, has shown a greater desiro to see that tho rights, in terests and welfare of the 'colored people are carefully guarded and protected and that they be treated with all the respect flul kindness to which they are entitled than James. M. Harris. He is a ran of great firmness, who knows what is right, and knowing, will stand to the rights of the colored people under all circum stances. THE OHIO CONTEST. The election in Maine had no signifi cance whatever. State pride for a favor ite son and the prohibition cause addod to the strength of Blaine. The result simply shows that tho old-fashioned ma jority of nearly 30,000 had dwindled down to half that majority, but still a gain on the Republican majorities of the past few years, whon tho Republican party was dividod on tho greenback question. But tho result of the pending election in Ohio will be some indication as to the probable result. This election comes off on the 1 1th of October, and the result will be anxiously awaited. Blaiuo will make, a vigorous personal canvass. ' He will use his friendship and devotion to Garfield for all it is worth. The Republicans started off in Ohio in lS5j"by carrying that State for Fremont . with a plurality of 1G,G23. Four years later, in 18W, Lincoln's majority was 20,- Tiv. In iHii the majority ran up to liigh-waUir mark, when it reached 59,- 6SG. In 1SUS Grant had 41.C17 ma jority. and in 1872, ai,2t3. The lowest figure was touched in 1S7(, when , Hayes's plurality was 7516,but in 18S0 it went up again to tho usual figures, or, to be more exact, 31,227. In the last elec tion a year ago Iloadly carried the State by a plurality of 12,520 in a total vote of 13,ll3. W ith audi a consistent record as a Republican Slate the Demo crata hardly hope to carry Ohio, wnicb has always been Ivepublican in Presidential years since 1S5G. But they do exiiect to reduce the majority of .11.000 given in 1SS0. Sanguine Democrats, however, insist that preposterous as tho claim may seem, they will be able, with the aid of the Independents and the German vote, to carry the State in the aimroachiait election. Of course, if this should be the result, it would decide the contest and crcato such a revolution that it would bo impossible to tell whcr.e it would end. Tho moral effect ou every State in the Uuion would be tremendous. In politics as iu everything else nothing succeeds like success. Thore are thou sands of voters who are ready to vote on the winning side. Defeat in Ohio would demoralise the Repub licans and inspiro the Democrats with euthusiasm everywhere, It would give all the djubtful States to Cleveland, make them reliable Democratic States, and place several reliable Republican States in tho doubtful classification. Even if the Republicans carry Ohio by . a majority less than the 31,000 of four years ago it will be a victory on the part " of the Democrats. Hoadly's majority a year ago was achieved by the Republican Germans, who voted for him. Then there was a direct issue on tho liquor question, and as the position of tho Re publicans was objectionable to the Ger mans they voted for Iloadly. There is no such issue in the present canvass; but the Germans know that Cleveland and the Democratio party are opposed to autnptnary laws, that Blaine and the Re liubUoau party favor the temperance logi-datioD. which tramples on the per sonal rights ot the people, and regarding personal liberty w t rigb.t still worth V preserving, they mxy vote with the Democrat m all future elections. The ic W M-U nay, lW a Democrali 10 victory in Ohio in October would settle tie Presidential contest. It would de stroy tho last desperate hope of Blaine's success. Should the Republicans by the use of money and Federal patronage re tain their customary ascendancy in Pres idential years, the Presidential outlook wiil remain unchanged and be left for the general engagement in November to decide. It is quite certain that tho sen timent of the West is strongly antagon istic to the intolerant and un-American llepublican policy, and that should the republicans by a concentration of money and patronage save Ohio in October they will be very likely to lose Indiana, Wis consin and other Western States in No vember, when there will bo fighting all along the line, and when tho honest Pro hibition vote, as well as the liberal vote will be cast against tho Whitc-Fcathercd Dodger of Maine. 1IIK 6TANWOetH AM C'ARPKTHAG bKKS. Tho receding tido of the war between the Sutcs left amid the sedimentary de posits Jacob and Nathaniel Stanwood, Blaine's brothers-in-law. Jacob was a full brother to Mrs. Blaine, and Nathan was only a half brother. Both located in Lowndes county, Ala., and seemed to be the most hungry and ravenous of all tha carpetbaggers. In giving a history of these adventurers the Hayneville (Ala.) Examiner says that Nathan Stan wood "went into politics as a carpetbag ger, and was as bitter and incendiary an old fellow as ever cursed us with mid night meetings. He had no money. Jacob had money and bought the prairio place in Pintlala beat now owned by Col. Brewer and Mr. A. E. Chaffee. Natha i stayed at the old place a while, but in a year or two his brother made him leave. Nathan fell out with most of bis brother carpetbaggers, but at last got an office as aeeut of the internal revenue, which took him to North Mississippi, where ho died about ten years ago. His brother died a year or so later, and his son, Mr. Charles Stanwood, who dwelt here two or throe years, sold out in 1873. Mr. Jacob Stan wood nor his son ever took any part in politics. The father was a large and pompous man, with a blustering and coarse manner, and it was some of his foolish talk that caused tho lato Gen. Clanton to break a pitcher over his head. The young Stanwood was a stocky built man, but under medium bight, with a baldish head, and in no way resembled his father, as ho was quiet and gentle manly. It was he who quarreled t with Judge Bus teed the last time that noto rious Boamp was dowo here, and spent the night with Mr. Charles; when get ting npHhe next morning, and seeing a carriage driven to the door, ho asked Mr. Charles where ho was going, whereupon the latter replied: 'That carriage is for you, sir, and will take you to Montgom ery this morning.' Mr. Charles had no talent at all for running a cotton planta tion, and his father was only moderately accomplished in that way. , . Tm A &XT IW : A Washington correspondent who has given the Congressional nominations o this year careful study states that no doubt warned by the experiences of list election, and urged by the necessities of the nation al campaign, they have in both parties put forward, so far as possible, their best men. The result will be, it is believed, a very material improvement over the present Conirreas. There are a few cases where V excellent men have voluntarily retired, as is tho fact in tho casoa of Messra. Wash bnrne, of Minnesota; George, of Oregon; Miller, of Pennsylvania, and a few others; but as good men have been named to suc ceed most of them the loss will not be serious.- Among the men of more than av erage ability already named for the next House are Reed and Dingley, of Maine; Lyman, Rice and Rockwell, of Massa chusetts; Randall, of Pennsylvania; Mc Adoo and Phelps, in New Jersey ; Holton and McComas, in Maryland ; Tucker and Barbour, of Virginia; Aiken, Tillman and Dibble, of North Carolina; Forney, Her bert nd Oates, of Alabama; Regan, of Texas; Clardy, Bland, O'Neill, Hatch and lsames, of MUBOUrt; FoNult, luWerw-eU-Paige and Foran, of Ohio; Davis and Hitt of Illinois; Horr and Burrows, of Michi gan, and many others. .Of course the loaders on either side, such as Morrison, Kelly, Cox, Carlisle and others of that class, will be rent back. WE WAXT CAPITA!.. " From many parts of the South the cry goes up every day for more money. The Northern and Western States monopolize the great bulk of the capital of the conn- try, indeed all of the available active cap ital. In Florida, Alaltama, Georgia and Tennessee this want is especially felt, for thesa States are most actively engaged in building and extending manufacturing en. ter prises. , Here in Memphis we need $10,000,000 more of capital. That amount invested here, as it has been in Kansas City, by Eastern capitalists, would give us an impetus that without it we cannot hope for for years to come. We are just now in the transition state from tho depression and depletion of the years of panic1 and plague, and with a friendly hand reached out to help us we could do many things that are really needed to push us into the activity of a boom'.TI Looking to the fut ure 'we ought "to have possession of at least 1530 acres of land for three parks, in the northern, south- a 1 f. . a. I- em and eastern parts ot tne city, to oe connected by a 200 foot boulevard. This work once initiated, there can be no doubt that we should enjoy a building boom compared to which the activities of last year would be a mere bagatelle. It is by juet such means that Chicago was made the city it is the greatest on the North American continent. We want capital. Capital begets enterprise and enterprise population, and population stable and per manent wealth and growth. OUR l i ri RK. Mr. John Biddulph Martin, an En glish scientist, in a paper on the "Future of the United States," read by him at the recent sassion of the British Science As sociation at Montreal, stated as a result of his study and observation of our growth that as the result of railway building, we would have a large accretion of bona fide railway securities; that the ultimate abo lition of the national debt would create a fall in the rate of interest, which would be seriously felt by those depending on fixed incomes, and wonld result in lower wagos and prices generally ; that the con tinuance of the lartco national income from customs dutiea on imports would necessitate their abolition; and finally, tlwt with the increase bf population and diffusion of wealth, individal fortunes will be less easily made and lees opportunity given for gigantic operations in produce or stocks. WO. EX KAT8.W The Art Interchange calls attention to what it fittingly terras a misfortune lor workias women. It is that most of the ntiopa where decorative and knitted work is sold are constantly receiving on sale ar ticles from women who livo luxuriously and wuc, anxious lor ' pin money, are willing to sell their manufactures at any price. The result is that the worker who depends upon her labor for support finds herself compelled to accept a pittance, the prices being so ruinously cnt by these fine-lady pirates, whose rapacity thus adds to the miseries of the honest toiler?, woit of whom have families dependent upon them for support, some of them invalids. The benefit from this soit of "rat" work goes not to the public but to the shop keeper who puts the difference he would have to pay tho poor working woman and the "rat" lady worker in his pocket. Is there no remedy for this? ixsib aait'E toaSEJi. The losses by fire during tha month of August, in Canada and this country, foot np a total of $10,500,000. This is at the late of $120,000,003 pur annum, or about one-half the taxable wealth of Tennessee. This is destruction with a vengeance. We thus blot out in two yeaia the sum total of the wealth and earnings of 1,500,000 peo ple extending through many generations. This is a loss we cannot stand. It is a tax upon the productive energies of the coun try greater than the internal revenue, and double as much as tbe cost ot the Federal government before the war. We must curb tbe fire fiend or he will sweep us ou the earth. THE DEAD LOCK &-f.i That Occasioned the Adjournment of the Democratic Congressional Conven tion of the Ninth District From Dyersburgr to Trenton, Where It Will Xcet To-Morrow and More Than Likely Nominate A Dark Horse Frank P. Bond, of Hay wood, and Mr. Deoson, of Gibson, the Favorites. ICOKEKSPONDgXCK Or THK AFPKAI..1 - Woodville, Texn., September 15. I attended the famous convention of the Ninth Congressional District at Dyers burg last week. The gathering eclipsed anything of the sort that has happened in the Slate, perhaps. It convened Tuesday and stood in session five days, and balloted 2200 times, and adjourned Saturday night to meet at Trenton Thursday next. There was such a feel ing against new men or "dark horses," as some men call them, that none were presented before the convention. It was a fine opportunity for them, but none dared show their heads. Friday night ot the convention a dark wooden pony was carried around through the convention hall, as a hiu to bring in another horse, but none were trotted out. It was generally charged that Dyer county prevented a nomination, as sev eral times a nomination could have been made if Dyer would only have cast its vote, or even a portion of it, for other candidates than Latta. - Some facetious persons said that Dyer county was lock ing the" convention to make money for Dyersburg. It was estimated that there were 400 persons there two days and they spent about $600 per day for hotel bills, about &0 per day for cigars, about $100 per day for whisky, beer, wine and soda water. The balance of the time the amount spent fell off about one-fourth or one-third. There was never a chance for Latta, and it is strange that Dyer could .think that ho stood a ghost of a chance before the convention. The only, threo men there was a possi bility of nominating were Glass, Cooper and Caldwell, and the latter's chances were extremely slim. Pierce could not have been nominated if the convention remained in session all the fall and win ter. Gibson and Weakley counties had fifty-one votes, and . they would never consent to vote for Pierce, and they could defeat any candidate under the two thirds rulo. There were 128 votes in all. The convention resolved itself toward the last into a "wearing-out" business. That is, each candidate thought that if be held out the longest the others would come to him. jMen got contrary, some got. mad. andieelini ran sob.uihthat concessions were out of the question. I think that when a convention becomes a bundle of prejudices all prejudice against "dark horses" ought to be abandoned. Each candidate hated to give up to the one who fought him so hard, but would willingly, perhaps, throw his strength to a. new man. Whenever a convention gets in a position to endanger the suo cess of the Democratio party, then all its prejudices against new men should be abolished. The success of the party should be paramount to the- success of any ' member' of it. The man who would withdraw from a race of the sort at Dyersburg should receive tho plaudits of the people. . The sacrifice will not be forgotten, and a day of' reckoning and reward will come.. If the candidates had done the proper thing, in my opinion, they would have all withdrawn from the track and said to tho delegates: "We are all off in earnest, believing that the good ot the party de mands it." Then entirely new. men would have been brought before the body and a nomination would havehcenl made. Since tho convention adjourned Saturday and before it adjourned, P. T. Glass, of Lauderdale; Rice A. Pierce, of Obion, and Wise A. Cooper.of Gibson, have withdrawn, but whother in earnest, whether they are sincere, I am unable to write. Two comparatively young men are BDoken of now to be brought before the convention at Trenton Thursday next. One a Mr. Deason. of Gibson county, and the other Frank P. Bond, of Hay wood county. Both are young men of promise and true Democrats. It is thought one of them will receive the nomination. The convention at Dyers burg will occupy a singular place in the history of the State, and will be spoken of long after tho present generation is gono. it was an orderly Douy, ana tne delegates had the appearance of sensible, ntelligent men. It was also an excep tionally sober convention, and it was therefore a surprise to everybody that they could not agree. It is earnestly hoped that when the convention meets Thursday at Trenton all bitterness will be set aside, and that the delegates will make a good nomination and return home and work for his election.

Judge Morgan. Serenaded by the Pro- pie Makes a Telling Speech. IcotRKsr-oNDssri or tbx aphal ! New Albany. September 13. O Thursday laM Judre Moriran and Gen. Chalmers in their canvass reached our town and put up at the Snider House. Many of our people had attended their joint discussion at Keownville and EllLsr town and broucht the news home that Morgan was making the ablest presenta tion ot the issues of the canvass that had ever before been delivered in the oounty and that he was undeniably an over match for his opponent. The boys were unwilling to let the occasion pass with out attesting their appreciation of the judge, and at about 0 o'clock p. m., headed by our brass band, repaired tb the hot-! and called him out. The judge appcareil. and in well-chosen worda an. koowletk-id the compliment. After speak ing of tho Presidential candidates and national issues, he said: cut tnere is fellow-citizens, another question, my forced into this contest by the Republi cans, superior' to any and all others, so tar as Mississippi is concerned, aud that is one of race supremacy who should hold the masterv ot' ftnl" mt.Ag'.A? T H ftP flaw advisedly in the hearing of my distin guished competitor, Gen. Chalmers, who claims the indorsement of that party, and I . say that the overthrow ot 'the Democratic party in this State in November means the ultimate overthrow of the property owners and intelligence of the State, and the restoration to supreme control of that power which rnled so disastrously from 1870 to 1875. Gen. Chalmers may not intend to be a party to it, but such will be the inevitable result. My fellow citizens, can we think of this possibility without a shudder? Then let us vow by the love we bear our State, dear wives and little ones, that this-shall never be! The speech ended, all Bhook hands with the judge, wishing him success and a pleasant night's rest, and went home de termined to roll up the biggest majority for tho ticket that Union has ever given. On Friday Judge Morgan and Gen. Chalmers, as per appointment, met in joint discussion at the courthouso at 11 o'clock a.m. An immense audience had assembled, and the house was literally packed. All admit that the judge gained a complete victory over his opponent. Such enthusiasm as prevails is seldom witnessed, and pres iges for the Demo cratio ticket the largest majority ever polled in Union county. union. CABOT, ARK. The XJtte Election aad tbe Sweeping Victory r tbe Uemecratlc Party. The Cottoa and other Cropa Schools Opening- Personals Trade. fCOHRE3PONDNCC OP Till APPKAL. Cabot, September 15. Forty thou sand majority for the Democracy of Ar kansas, and still the Republicans are not happy. From every section and from almost every county in our fair State comes the welcome tidings of Democratic victory and Republican defeat. Not only has the entire State ticket been elected by the Democrats, but the glorious principles which they have ever advo cated have captured tor them nearly all the county offices also. To-day in look ing over the returns from the seventy five counties which compose the State, your correspondent finds that out of ninctv-fiye Representives chosen at the last election for the lower houso of the Legislature, the Republicans elected twelve, seven of whom are of African descent; the Independents one, and the Greenbackers one. Thus we see that the people of Arkansas will be represented in the next lower house by eiehty-one men of true and tried principles, men Irom whom they have a right to expect much, and who will not betray the trust reposed in them. Never in the history of the State could she boast of a better corps of offieials, and never has more universal satisfaction pervaded the breasts of her people. And especially is this true of Lonoke county. At the primaries on the 14th of August the people placed in the field one of the best tickets that Lonoke county has ever had, and on the 1st of September they showed an appreciation of their former work by electing the lull ticket by nearly 1000 majority. Indeed, Republicanism has been buried so deep in our midst that it will never strain raise its ugly head apove the waves of defeat to mar the harmony of future elections. The inscription that was written by the unseen hand on the walls of the festive hamber ot Baby lon'-wicked kmc has been placed on the Republican tomb stone, and the sleep that knows no wak ing has hushed in its voice lorever m Lonoke county. We can only say: Reguietcat in pace. I have noticed with marked attention ana reaa witn aeep interest the various reports of the crops from different parts oi tne otate, as given by the appeal correspondents, from which I conclude that Arkansas will not make a full crop this year; and especially is this true of the cotton crop, which has been more or less lojurcd by the severe drouth which as visited nearly every portion ot our State. And even where that has failed to do its work other causes have con pired to the inj'ury of that plant. . I nave seen it stated in some ot our papers- that Arkansas will make the largest crop this year that she has ever made before. Why is it that news papers will propagate suoh falsehoods and foster such reports in the very face of facts? Is it because they wish to eep un an appearance? Nav. verilv. The truth will be known, and let us not keep it concealed until it will rise in its own defense. I could name a dozen counties in the State that will not make over two-thirds of a crop. This is the case with Lonoke countv. - In our neich- porhnnrl wa b.o.va . Kad ri o ra.iu ain'P. the 21st of May. until last Thursday. Other parts of the county have suffered ercatlv.

It will be to some extent a matter of favoritism as to who gets the banks in the several localities, and it will be in my power to cast an an chor to the windward in your behalf if you desire it. Please think over the mat ter and confer with Mr. Caldwell and let me know your desires as soon as you reach any conclusion.

It seems extremely hard and unjust that I should be compelled to pav this money. It is no more my debt than the debt of President Grant or Queen Victoria, and I cannot believe that vou and Mr. Fisher intend to leave this bur den on me. If you do, it will crush me. I have no possible means wherewith to meet these notes, and 1 beg of you and Mr. fisher, either or both, to come to my relief. . In a letter from Mr. Fisher, under date of January 24ih, he writes me as follows: in regard t3 the t-2,(KH) which you bor rowed and loaned to Mr. Caldwell, or rather Mr. Pratt, as it was aRsnmed by Mr. Pratt, because you received from him $50,000 land bonds for the amount, upon my visitins the oilice for the first time afier you left the city, Mr. Pratt Baid he and Mr. Farrington gave to you their indi vidual bonds and kept the money, and in order to obtain tbe money and get it out of Mr. Pratt's hands.

In the meantime I can say nothing fur ther than what I have heretofore told you : that Mr. Caldwell represented to ma that he had paid for your account, and for which he has your receipts, all but $2o00 of the $25,000 which you loand and for which you received as collateral $50,000 of the Little Kock bond?, which you since sold, .Realizing therefor $30,000, leaving you n7w in advance of funds, even if Mr. Caldwell had paid you nothing. I have heretofore advised you that had been frequently importuned far the securities of the Northern Pacific, and as last resort.

You are well aware of the condition of the road, and that yon have received your propor tion of the bonds. I think yon can readily see that I can make no proposition further than as the road progresses to deliver yon bonds in accordance. I remain with kind regards, warren fisheb, jr. X The ' following was in ' reply lo Mr. Blaine's letter of April 13, 1S72, already published : AMISTOH, April IU, 101.. To Mr Dear Blaine Your favor of the 13tn instant reached me this morning. I am surprised at its contents. I have loaned you at various times, wnen you were com paratively poor, very large Bums of money, and never have you paid me one dollar from your own pockets, either principal or interest. I have paid sundry amounts to others to whom vou were indebted, and theue debts you have always allowed to stand unpaid like the notes which I hold. 1 have placed yon in position wnereby you have received very large sums ol money without one dollar of expense to you, and you ought not to forget the act on my part. Of all the parties connected with the liitue Kocx and i ort snuin rail road no one has been as fortunate as your self in obtaining money ont of it. You ob tained subscriptions from your friends in Maine for the building of the Little Bock & Fort Smith railroad. Out of their sub scriptions you obtained a large amount of bonds and money free ot cost to you. I bave your own figures and know the amount. Owing to your political position you were able to work olf your bonds at a very high price, and the fact is well known to others as well as yourself. Wonld vour friends in Maine be satisfied if they knew tbe facts? Are my associates satisfied to have obtained $25,000 for the Northern Pacific railroad and you not make the investment as per agreement? The course you have thought proper to take in v regard to my request is rather a poor one, taking your relations with me, and I again ask you to reconsider and grant it. You will find it much easier to pay by obtaining tne credit; and 1 selected thatouree thinking it to be the beat. If you again decline l shall be obliged to use the notes or sell the in to outside purchasers. Necessity knows no law. Whatever bonds still due to yon will be delivered as the road pro greases. To the other portions of your letter I make no reply. Yon know tbe facts; it is sufficient that I know them and. it is useless to msntion them at this time. Please answer at once. Very re spectfully yOUrfl, WARREN FISHER, JB 1 ne reply to this letter is Mr. Ulaine s letter of April 18, 1872, already published. The expression, "obtaining the credit," in the above letter refers to a request by Mr. Fisher that Mr. Blaine would give him a letter oi credit to be drawn against him .by Mr. Fisher during a proposed Euro pean trip, Mr. Elaine being at the time indebttd to Mr. Fisher for borrowed money, for which Mr. Fisher held Mr. Blaine's demand promissory notes.

The following is the inclosure referred to in the preceding: Bustok, April, 1S76, To tbe lion. J. O Blaine, Waihinaton, I. C: Dxab !mb 1 observe that certain news papers are making, or rather insinuating the alisurd charge that you own or had owned $150,qp0 of the Little Bock and Fort mith railroad bonds and that you had in some way obtained them gratuity. The enterprise of building the Little Kock and Fort Sadth railroad ws undertaken in lSii'J by a company of Boston gentlemen of whom I waa myself one. The bonds of th an"j wr put upon the market in this city upon what was deemed very advantageous terms to the purchaser.-.. They were sold- largely through myself. You became tbe pur chaser of ab6ut $30,000 worth of the bonds on precisely the same terms that every other buyer received, paying ior tnem in installments running over a considerable period, just as others did. lhe transaction was perfectly open and there was no more secrecy in regard to it than if you had been buying flour or sngar. I am sure yon nver owned a bond of the road that you did not pay for at the market rate. Indeed I am sure that no one received bonds on any other terms. When the road got into financial difficul ties, and loss leu upon you, you sun re tained yonr bonds, and yon held them clear through the reorganization of the company in 1S74, exchanging them for Btock and bonds of the new company. You acquired, also, some demands against the new company by reason of yonr hay ing joined with others in raising some money wnen tne company was in pressing need. For tho recovery of that money proceedings are now pending in the United States Circuit Court in Arkansas, in which vou are openly a party to record. Concealment n? the investment and every thing connected with it would have been very easy had concealment been desired ; bnt vour action in the whole matter was open and as lair as tne aay. veryBin- cerely yours, w. f., jb.

OBITUARY. Robert Hoe. New York Herald. Sunday: Mr. Rob ert Hoe, of the firm Of lL Hoe & Co., died yesterday at his summer residence in Tarrytown, on the Hudson. Mr. Hoe was born seventy years ago in New York City, and was the son ot Kobert iioe, an l'jnglisbnian, who came to the United States in 1803. from Hose, Leicester shire, and founded the business house of It. Iioe & Co., well known manufacturers of printing presses. When quite ayoung man Robert Hoe, with his brother Rich ard M., succeeded to the business estab lished by his father, which has become the largest of its kind in the world. lie was always a public-spirited, liberal minded citizen, identifying himself with all that was for the best interests for his native city and his country. - W hen an active member of a number of business corporations, he also gave much of his time and means to individual charities. It is doubtful whether one of the more than 1000 hands in the employ of his firm can recall a harsh or un kind word spoken by Mr. Robert Hoe. Mr. Hue was of a quiet and retiring dis position, and, although taking much in terest in political matters, never sought any prominent public position, although he served as a member ot the Committee of Seventy, organized in 1871 to reform the city government. He was a member of the Fifth Avenue - Presbyterian church, and leaves a widow, one daugh ter and one son. Mr. Hoe lived in Tarrytown during the summer for the past sixteen years, ior the last year or two he had not been very strong. Xwo weeks since he was attacked with malarial fever and never rallied. Mr. Hoe was fond of art and gathered a fine collection of paintings, lie was ever ready to help our young artists, and was one ol the early promoters ot the National Academy ot Design.
