Party Discipline.—We do not now ]
peak of compelling the members of a ,
arty to obey its decrees or abide by its
octriiies; these are obvious obligations
rhich the competitors for tho honors of a '
arty will enforce. Bolting from tho plat- j
>rm of a party is usually as fatal politi- |
ally a»bolting from the platform of a car ]
i physically. The discipline of which we ]
peak is that which demands of every rep- <
esentativo of a party that he takes care tho ,
epresentation'of the party does not sillier (
i his hands. It is to sco that an incum- <
ent does not subordinate tho interest j
f tho party to his own. Parties are ]
rganized not to rob tho people,
mt to conduct the government on a certain |
me of principles and public policy. In tho
Inited States people do not readily see
iow good can come out of evil. Tf a
land of men calling themselves Democrats
obs the people of New York of millions,
>r another band under Unices Ames cm
larrasses the Republican party with a vin
lication, what gain is there to the one or
he other of the great parties implicated?
Hie chief culprits in each case havo obvi
msly taken the name and political fellow
ihip to secure access to the public treasury.
I'ho princely gains accrue to themselvoß.
I'ho obloquy and damage result to the
;reat parties which such men have dis
;racod.—N. O. ltepublican.
»
A Bancior (Me.) prohibitionist was ro
:ently discussing tlie liquor law, and .
ttrongly urged its strict enforcement. To
jmphasize his remarks, ho gesticulated with
his umbrella; whereupon a black bottle
fell to the pavement with a crash, and the
udor of "Old Bourbon" was diffused
wound. That closed the argument.
CITY NEWS-
The Great Eastern.—The above
title implies majesty, and it was partly for
1 that reason that Colonel Ilaight has ap
plied the name to his Grand Triple Mc
nagorie, Double Circus and Aggregation of
Wonders. It is majesty itself", a towering
giant among its associates. It commands
the respect and is really a monarch among
all its competitors. It everywhere rcoeives
the plaudits of an overjoyed pulilic; and
the press of tho country aro lavish of their
praises. Below wo quote from tho I/onis
ville Commercial, a paper which, as every
ono knows, thinks too much of its Space
to extol an unworthy object:
" This colossal exhibition, the no plus
ultra of arenio and zoological excellen
cies, opened on the corner of East and
Chestnut streets to a very line audience
in point of numbers aud respectability,
and at night there was a penect jam of
breathing humanity, thousands being
turned away, unable to gain admission on
account of the crowded stalo of the, im
mense pavillions. The procession in tho
forenoon of yesterday through the princi
pal avenues of tho city is conceded
tho most imposing and gorgeous
ever made here. The whole was
enlivened with excellent music fiom
several bauds. Of the exhibition
itself, too much in just commenda
tion cannot be said. Ihe night perfor
mance was unfortunately inarfed by the
severo wind and disaster which so sudden
ly terminated tho exhibition, but tho after
noon entertainment was smooth, most
agreeablo and instructive. Tho animal
collection is much tho largest ever pecn
horc, embracing thirty-odd dens of living
specimens from tho now and old world.
With tho circus the audience wero de
lighted, and manifested their approbation
by warm and repeated applause. The
equestrianism is especially unexcelled.
Tho acrobatic aud gymnastic exeroises
were wonderful, and elicited much romaik
from the enthusiastic visitors."
Dead.—Captain Frederick Bouie died
this morning, in this cily, alter a long and
exhaustive illness, caused by a general
prostration of tho system. 110 was a
watch-maker by profession, and in that
capacity well known in this city. lie was a
native of Altona, near tho cily of II»m
--burg, and aged about 4 r > ye.ir.s-. On his
arrival in this oountry he settled in
New Orleans, His first appesvrajiea
in Virginia was in 18G1 wilh bne
of tho Louisiana Confederate regiments.
His military record was good. He came
from a, wealthy and influential family in
his native place, and his presence in Amer
ica was duo more to a roving disposition
than actual necessity. He was kindly dis
posed, generous and hospitable. While re
gretting that he died away from home and
kindred, we believo his last hours were
consoled by the presence of friends who
would have stayed his going if they could.
Peace to his ashes.
Little Jiramie, son of Mr. James Morris
sey, one of the inspectors at the Custom- ,
house in this city, after a wasting illness of '
many weeks duration, yesterday surren
dered his brief hold on life and flew to the ,
angels above. He was only seven or eight
years here, but his walk and conversation
gave evidenco that ho would havo been a
superior man. Ho went early, but not un- |
regrotted. His funeral will take place at i
St. Peter's cathedral this evening, at 1 j
o'clork, and be attended by the Sunday- ,
school in a body, each individual member of
whom knew and loved the little boy whose
brief lifo record we here insert. |
The Cominct Sensation.—Tickets to
the Great New York Circus, which i
exhibits hero on Monday and Tuesday,
the 29th T and 30th instants, caiV.bc had at ,
Johnston's, No. !)1S Main street. This
show is tho finest in all respects of any i
now travelling, and must bo seen to be J
appreciated.
The Manassas Gazette of Saturday
lays: ]
" Look out for tho circus on next I
fucsday, the 23d instant. From our <
jxchanges it is spoken of as one of the I
most complete oi its kind ever exhibited in
this country. The only advice we havo to <
;ive is—go and see for yourselves. One of
jur oldest and most respected citizens .
went to Alexandria on Tuesday last ;o !
visit the Great Eastern circus, anil he came ]
back perfectly disgusted, not with Alexan- j
Iria, but with the circus, and he says ho
3nly wish he had waited for Lent's circus,
For then ho would have got his moneys
worth tack. Everybody will havo a
:hanco of seeing the great combination on ,
the 23d instant."
The Hebrew New Year.—The J
Roth Hashana or the feast of tho Now '
—jar, commenced at sundown on Sunday, (
.he 21st, and among tho strictly orthodox
will be continued until the evening bf i
I'ucsday, the 23d, followed by tho Fast of
tiuedalyab, on Wednesday, the 21th. Tho ,
Feast of Yomhakippurim, or tho Day of
Atonoment, which occurs seven days fol- i
lowing, on what is known as the tenth day
of Ihe month of Sishri, will be observed
alike by orthodox and reformed congrega- i
—KM, The days of penitence being now ,
at hand, every morning before daylight i
Israelites, who are strict, repair to their i
respective synagogues, where (ho ram's
horn or trumpet is blown, and many im
pressive ceremonies performed.

Alt. About a Doo,—On Friday night
a white man by the name of Uhaatham was
knocked down with a bucket and severely
injured, on tho farm of Mr. Lucien King,
in Hanover county. It is stated that the
deed was done by one of tho colored hands
on the place in revenge for Cheatham's
killing his dog. This is tho surmise, as
Cheatham had requested tho party several
times not to allow tho dog to come on the
plaeo, and tho auimal was found after
wards shot. The suspected party was
arrested and lodged in jail.
The Steamer John Sylvester.—
This steamer, of the Richmond line, will
not be able to resuino her trips as soon as
was expected, her repairs not being yet

Beth Ahara.—We attended divin*
service to-tluy at Iho abovo-naracd Fyna
gogue, situated on Eleventh street, between
c Marshall anai ('lay, and wero much im
r pressed.with their holiday (Mew Year's Day)
" service. A largo congregation was in
- attendance, anil great interest was manl
f fested. A fino sermon was delivered by
i Or. A. S. Bcttclhcim, rabbi, after which
3 prayers were oll'ered by Dr. M. L.
5 Michelbacber, responses being mado
* thereto by tho congregation. An impor-
I lant and decidedly interesting feature
' of tho Horvice was tho singing of
• tho choir, rendered in a highly
creditable manner to thoso who compose
1 it, as tho pieces sung wero of tho most
difficult character. However, none will bo
1 surprised at its excellency of rendition
when we inform them of the ma
terial that compose it: Mr. Jacob
Bernhardt organist. Ms. Gust. Mill
hiser director, Mrs. J. Keinhardt soprano,
Missos Keinhardt and Michelbacher alto,
Mr. IT. C. Wyatt tenor and Mr. Rosen
feld (of tho Staats-Gazette) basso.
During the services, which lasted from
nine o'clock a. m. until twelve m., tho
horn which it is their custom to use on
such occasions was blown by Mr. M. May.
To-morrow wo believe their scrvico com
mences at an early hour in tho morning,
and lasts all day.
Pardon Refused,—Governor Walker
has refused to grant an application mailo
for tho pardon in the caso of James W.
Holt, who was sent to the penitentiary for
a term of ten years by the hustings court
of this city in February, I.SCO, for feloni
ously shooting Captain J as. M. Tyler, of tho
police force. The following is an account
of his conduct since ho has been in the pen
itentiary, as taken from tho books of the
superintendent: Ho escaped March 2G,
ISU6, and was returned August 12, 18(16 ;
April 9, 1807, ho cut a holo through a wall
into the water-closet anil threatened to
kill F. Jones, oneot the prisoners ; ho also
attempted to perform the same
operation on hini the same day
with a knife in Ihe shoe shop. August Cth,
1807, ho cut a hole through the roof
and attempted to escape. September Gth,
ISG7, ho headed a combination of nino
prisoners and cut out of tho hospital into
the roof of tho main building and attempted
to escape. December Gth, 18G9, ho at
tempted to escape.

tendent Binforel, to be found in our adver

ning of the session, but parents should re
member that they cannot be received unless
the state and city tax is paid.

1 [SUNDAY NIGHT'S DISPATCHES.]
New York, September 21, 8:10
• P. M.—President Grant and Socrotary
j Richardson, havo been in consultation
1 with Vanderbilt and other leading capi-
I talists, bankers and mercliants since noon.
1 No action reported yet.
LATER—RESULT OF THE CONFERENCE.
New York, September 21.—The fol
lowing ia the result of the conference at
tho Fifth Avenuo hotel, between tho
President and others, as to the best
means of overcoming the difficulties re
sulting from the recent financial disasters:
Tho President positively declines to
interfero in tho matter, as any action ot
his in connection therewith would bo
unconstitutional.
The committee of bankers and mer
chants had como down to the final
proposition to the government, to issue
$30,000,000 of the legal reserve.
Reverdy Johnson is said to have given
his opinion to the effect lhat to use the legal
reserve is unconstitutional.
Secretary Richardson opposes the placing
of any considerable sum of the reserve at
the disposal of the New York banks. To
use his own words, quoted on the authority
of ono of the committee: "This, gentlemen,
is not my funeral."
VANDERBILT PAYS $2,000,000 INTO
THE UNION TRUST COMPANY—HEN -
ERAL CAUSE OF THE SUSPENSIONS—
CONDITION OF THE VARIOUS TRADES.
New York, September 21.—At a late
hour last (.Saturday) night, it was stated in
ono of the clubs that Commodore Vander
bilt had paid into the Union Trust company
during the day $2,000,000, the amount due
by the Lake Shore road ; thus enabling the
Trust company to resume business Monday
morning.
The general cause of suspension ou the
part of the banks and bankers yesterday
was the inability to convert securities into
cash. Even government bonds could not
be disposed of except at immense loss.
By the action of the bank officers yester
day, this difficulty is done away with.
Any bank, by depositing in the hands of
tho committee good securities, can obtain
an equal amount of certificates, which can
bo used in tho clearing business instead of
legal tenders. The certificates will go into
effect to-morrow (to-day).
Tho dry goods men believe that Jay
Cooke _ Co. will pay the last cent of their
liabilities.
Tho tea trade is in a healthy csndition,
nearly all of that branch of business being
done through foreign bankers.
The wholesale druggists fear nothing,
unless tho stress continues. Sales in
other branches of trade run along in the
samo old channels.
[TO-DAY'S DISPATCHES.]
New York, September 22.—1t is offi
cially announced that Secretary Richard
son will continue to buy bonds at Satur
day's quotations. Secretary Richardson
said last night ho did not sec he had the [
power to do more than buy bonds, aud
all 5-20s offered-, will be bought without -
delay or " red tape." ;
"The government," the secretary says, j
"is not a trust company or loan institution, \
and it is doubtful if congress would sane- j
tion any such construction of my power."
(The abovo alludes to the nsing of $10,000,- ,
000 of the reserves.]
Thirty savings banks have resolved to i
ngidlv enforce tho previous notice clause. I
The Union trust company is in the hands
of a receiver.
Tho New York stock exchange remains ,'
closed to-day.
The manager of the clearing houso says !
every check passed through clearing will
be paid. Ho says tho banks are in no
danger, and that they wore never stronger.
Tho suspension of Marvin & Brothers is
announced.
All banks haye pulled through except ,
two; tho two settling through the loan
committee. All the savings banks are
having a run ou them.
Tho clearing house loan committee
have issued $2,500,000 certified checks.
The government has bought a million
in bonds. Large crowds are waiting to
soli.
Montreal and Europo are buying stocks
at tho shrinkage.
The gold exchange is closed, ; 112 has
been established as tho basis of settlement.
The rate of interest is fixed nt 7 for carry
ing.
The sub-treasury is buying 5-20s at
110 lU'ltH),
A run on the Seaman's bank has com
menced, lhey pay all sums of $100 and
under. Larger sums must wait tho law's
delay.'
Washington, September 22.—1n tho
course of tho morning, the President
called at the treasury department and had
a conferenco with Secretary Richardson.
Ihe result of it may be inferred from the
fact that subsequently the secretary stated
to the agent of the Now York Associated
Press that tho President will do anything
within the law, but in no particular go be
yond clear legal authority. He will main
tain tho safety of tho treasury department,
and protect the credit of the United States
from tho influences of the present financial
embarrassment.
Jay Cooko reassure? the solvency of tho
London house.
Philadelphia, September 22.—Tho
run on tho saving h inks has subsided.
CinCAcio, September 22.—The .savings
banks give notice of the enforcement of the
sixty days' notice

Washinoton, .September 22.—A pii
valo dispatch from Shreveport in relation
to tho yellow fever is discouraging.
Inlormaiion has been received here an
nouncing tho conclusion of a treaty wilh
it- of Colorado, ceding to the
United States four millions of acres of land,
believed to bo of great value on account uf
immoral deposits.
One of the most remarkable features of
our present financial disturbances, if not of
all past commotions, is, that nut one Jewish
i bank or banker has sußpended ; and this
leads to a consideration of the general fact
that in EurojM they are regarded by lead
ing statesmen as lliemostclear-hißailed ami
reliable financiers.

London, September 22.—At the session
of the British association at Bradford Sat
urday, Captain Markham, of the British
navy, who was on the Arctic when she re
ceived men rescued from tho Polaris, gave
detailed accounts of tho voyage of Captain
Hall, which he gathered from"the members
of the expedition.
He said tho Polaris occupied only five
days in making tho distance from' Cape
Shaklelmi northward to latitude 82 deg. G
mm. This was the nearest point to the
North Pole e«er reached by civiliy,ed man.
Tho ico was soft all the way and a stronger
vessel could have attained much higher
latitude.
The London Observer to-day closes an
eulogy on the late Captain Hall as follows:
A rude wooden monument to an intrepid
American, standing alone in the polar soli
tude, is at tho same time a grand memorial
trophy and challenge."

Madrid, September 21,—The Cortes

enor Maraytor's motion that the recess
hould begin to-day. The house has not

ron-clads by the British, and declares that
Gangland is abusing her power in not deliv
nng them up to tho Madrid government,

dncd to recall Pieltain, captain-general of
Cuba.
Madrid, September 22.—The Cortes
has adjourned. The government has pro
claimed tho suspension of the constitutional
guarantees and regulating the press through
out the country. Tho government has oc
