days; that they had been compelled to refuse

to the telegram in the Tribune. I asked him
what it meant, and whether there wa9 any
truth in it. He admitted to me that there was
no truth whatever in what would be implied in
the telegram. X afterwards talked with the

Dear Sir: In regard to the charges against
Senator Carpenter at Long Branch, the facts
are simply these: Mr. Carpenter came with
sevfral others, and there wan not a vacant room
in the bouse. I told him so, and gave him a
note of introduction to the Ocean House. If
the President hail called at the same time for a
room I should have to!d| him the same thing.
Mr. Carpenter was neither intoxicated, nor
guilty oi any improprieties whatever.
Georije H. Farrvr,
ltoom Clerk West Lud Hotel.
The Timer says editorially:
'? The true tacts have been known to us for
some time. The husband of the lady, who, for
v. ry natural reasons, desires not to bring hi
wite's name before the public, and therefore
does l ot wi>h to publish anything under his
own signature, some time since called on us
and Informed us that the charge was utterly
false, and requested us, in case the slander was
kept up, to publish a statement of the facts.''
The Philadelphia I'rett, referring to the
"Of the lady, we can freely state that we
have known her lather, mother, brothers, and
sisters lor many years, and wo have never met
a more irreproachable woman than herself, or
a more respectable family than that whose
r.ame she bore before her marriage. For her
sake and theirs we have deplored the publicity
that has been given to the charge agiinst a
public man who has done so much honor to our
public councils as Senator Carpenter."
The Washington correspondent of the Haiti
more American has the following to-day:
"It wa> rumored yesterday that Senator Car
penter would take the tirst oppmtunity to make
a peisonal explanation in the Sei:at*; with re
gaul to the charges affecting his character, and
which appeared originally in the New York Tri
bune. last summer. That he has already ttken
steps to vindicate himself the editorial of the
New Yolk Timet of yesterday shows. This edi
torial, with the letterd embodied in it, were
vety generally discussed last evening, and have
been the leading topic of conversation to-dav.
While those who know Mr. Kamsdell discredit
the statement reflecting on ins integrity, it is
thought Mr. Carpenter Stands acquitted of the
-erlous charge made again-t him. It is a fact
that Senator Carpenter wa< registered at the
West End Ho'el, l-ong Branch,und-rthe name
of llenry Carjicnter, but this is explained by
Mr. f'arfar, the room clcrk, now at Willard's
Hotel, as follows:?When Senator Carpenter
arrived at the West End Hotel he asked the
clerk (Mr. Farrar ' to register his name as Hen
ry Carpenter; and, on being asked why be
wanted this done, lie explained that he had
come to see the President, and if he was kuown
to be there, and on such an errand, be would
not even get time to sleep, he would be so over
run with visitors. The clerk then registered
the name as requested, but on looking at his
list afterward found he hail not a vacant room,
ami so Mr. Carpenter hail to go elsewhere. Mr'
llamtdell left here for New ^ ork last evening.'
New York I>ry Goods Markbt During
the past week there was a marked and contin
uous improvement in the general condition of
the trade; yet the aggregate distribution of
gools lor that period was materially lessened
by the recurrence of the annual Thanksgiving
holiday, and unfavorable weather towards the
close of the week. Transactions with the agen's
were spasmodic. No sooner was a line of goods
?no matter how large?ottered at prices which
were considered advantageous by the trade,
than an instant clearance was effected to the
be-t buyers in the market. This was the case
with various lines of bleached and brown cot
tons, also woollens, which were seized with
avid it v the moment bottom prices were touched.
On the other hand, agent- who showed a dis
inclination to meet the market fjund themselves
The dry goods imitations at this port con

Strik*?In consequence of orders from this
city reducing the wages of the employes at the
government granite works, near lticbmond,
Va., there was almost a general suspension of
work yesterday afternoon. First-class cutters
are reduced irom 9-4.50 to HJ.50; secoud-cliss,
t-i.'jS to $3 23; third-class, W to JCI. The wages
of other cotters, helpers, blacksmiths, Ac.,
were also reduced, but not In so great propor
tion. The cutters held a meeting last night to
consider the subject. Tbe proceedings were
secret, but it transpired that among other
things a committee was appointed to prepare a
protest against the reduction, and if necessary
to come to Washington to urge it. Work, how
ever, was resumed to- l?y, and will be con
tinned until tbe committee reports, when tlnal
action will be taken.

Havana. The day iii?n which the ceremony
will take place la not yet known. The naval
vessels preparing for sea will rendezvous at

This is a concession on our part, and is under

which would involve the two countries in war;

ot a refusal to deliver up the Virginias, it will

PROTEST FROM NEW VORK SPANIARDS.
A number of Spaniards met in New York
yesterday, in answer to a call which had been
freely circulated, to protest against the proto
col entered into by Secretary Fish and Admiral
Polo In regard to the Virginias affair. J. Fer

Polo's action, and said that his views would be
endorsed by every leading Spaniard otlthls side
of the Atlantic. He had received letters to this
effect lrom Spanish residents of other cities.
Other speakers followed, contending that the
United States bad no right to interfere with the
execution of the Virglnlus prisoners, and argu
ing that, according to the treaty previously ex
isting between tie two governments, the pris
oners could not claim protection of the Ameri
can flag, as the act or carrying arms against a
nation with which the I nited States wae at
