At length the iusensc is over and the new national Cabinet is simply a reappointment of the old by the substitution of J udge Richardson in Elace of Gov. Boutwell, elected to the r. S. Senate. The appointment of ex-Senator Sawyer as Assistant Se cretary of the Treasury, vice Judge Richardson promoted, is a just tribute to a worthy and able man whose faithfulness to convictions of duty lost him his seat in the Senate. Your correspondent has little acquaintance personally with the new Assistant Secretary, but will continue to re member him as a courageous adherent to principles as against - mere policy. Kepretenting a State a large majority of whose voters were colored, he re sisted clamor, and dared to oppose some of the unconstitutional measures of Chas. Sumner which gave special privileges to this class of citizens, and he also took a bold stand against cor ruption among the officials of his State. Devoted to the elevation and education of white and blacks alike, one year ago be was called on by the faculty of the Howard University at the Law Department Commence ment and made an elquent impromptu address, near the close of which he was insultingly interrupted by one or two disorderly colored men who charged him with expressing senti ments in the Senate adverse to the colored race. The interruption was in such gross bad taste that the 83-m-pathy of the audience, composed largely of colored people, was with the speaker, who quietly concluded his remarks without noticing the interruption. As straws show the direction of the wind, this is an index to the subsequent treatment of Senator Sawyer, who had the written testimonials of twenty-seven Senators in favor of his appointment bv the President John Goforth, Esq., an able and ex penenced lawyer of Philadelphia has been confirmed as Assistant U. S. Attorney General in the place of Col. v m. JucsiicDaei wno is installed in the office of U. S. District Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsyl vania. From long personal knowl edge your correspondent can say of Mr. Goforth that he is an able and wortly gentleman the right man for such a place. CONKLINO ON THE CALDWELL CASE. Senator Conkling made a model speech in the Senate on Wednesday and Thursday on the subject of the resolution declaring the seat of Sena tor Caldwell vacant In power of logic and strength of language it was perfectly Webetcrian. After laying down the principles by which the Senate was legally bound and limited, denying the right of the Senate to question the motives of State legisla tors in giving their votes for U. S. Senators and contending that therein the State Legislature and State Courts in the absence of any Act of congress conferring the specific ju risdiction elsewhere, have exclusive jurisdiction in all questions of bribery of their own members; ha averred that Senator CaldwelL possessed every qualification into which the Senate had a right to inquire. He received a majority of the votes cast by the Legislature of Kansas, and the election was conducted in the place and manner prescribed by law ; the votes were honestly counted and legally returned. Ilehad sat in the Senate and exercised all the functions of a Senator for the past two years, and now, after this lapse of time, the Senate is asked to declare that he never was elected at all, and in fact there had been no elections for Sena tor, and that the scat mhich Mr. Caldwell has beea filling has been vacant all the time! He exhorted Senators to keep within the law and not to transcend it on account of sym pathies and emotions on one hand or sensation and clamor on the other. He said they were not now making, but only administering the law. He drew a distinction between fraud and bribery. Fraud preventing the free assent to what is done and ren dering the act void ; while in bribery the intention and the act are in union, and whatever may be the wrongful influence upon the Legisla ture, the act IB his own. He intends to do it, and it cannot be set aside. He said if the question was one of expulsion it would be governed by different principles, and the jurisdic tion would be unquestioned. CAPITAL ITEMS.

Harmsbcbo, March 2CKh,I873'. During the past week the Legisla ture has been hard at work, and it is high time that they were, for April is rapidly coning oa and an immense number of bills ar yet to be acted on, while many more are yet to be offer ed. On Tuesday not less than 340 bills were reported from the various committees of the House. On Wednesday Mr. Reynolds, of Bedford, made an ineffectual attempt to have a special session on Wednes day evening next, for the purpose of considering the bill relieving the sev en day liaptists and others who ob serve Saturday as the Sabbath from the penalties of the act of 1794 ; quite a number of petitions have been sent in in favor of this measure,, several of which are from Somerset county. A big fight is going on over the bill proposing to form the new county of Minnequa. A powerful lobbv headed by the veteran Peter nendrlc is working in favor of it The bill was before the House on a special or der on Wednesday, and occunied most of the morning session. At one o'clock an adjournment was had until 3 p. m., when the bill was again tak en up and a protracted struggle took place. After being amended bo as to require the propsition to be submit ted to a vote of the people residing within the proposed limit of the new county ana also requiring a two-third vote of the same in form before it be comes a law, the bill was passed to a third reading. All the members from the counties interested in this meas ure are bitterly opposed to it, and fight it at every step. Mr. Brockway and Sam Josephs Kccm to have the bill in their especial charge. Iuring the debate Mr. Brockway mU that it was no reason to oppose the bill I -en use certain men were supporting it. allnd ingto the charge that Ilendr.c and others were using improper means to carrv it, whereupon Mr. Meyer, of Bradford, retorted by having some remarks of Mr. Brockway'sread from last vear's journal wherein he ex pressed his opinion of these gentle men and the measures for which they were lobbying, in not very compli mentary terms. Trobibly one of the most impor tant bills yet passed by the present Legislature is that which empowers married women to hold real estate in their own right, and allowing them to sell the same ; this is certainly some recognition of the rights of women ; and while some see in the law oppor tunities of fraud, yet it must be admit ted that it will prove of vast benefit to that class of women who have worthless and intemperate husbands ; ' and should the Governor approve the bill, these women will have control over their own financial affairs. The House has also passed the Senate bill relating to the revenues of the Commonwealth. I tie im re peals all lf.ws taxing horses and cat tie for State purposes, it also repeals the tax on net earnings of incorpora ted companies, after Nov. 1st, 1873. The third sect:.on of the bill repeals the vax upon gross receipts of rail road, canal and transportation com panies after July 1st ; except those which have been exempted from ton nage tax by special law, which shall continue to pay three-fourths of one per cent on their gross receipts. The fourth section taxes all corporations, except Banks and Savings Bank?, which are authorized to issue bonds or evidence of indebtedness, five per cent on the amount of interest paid on the same. This bill, if it becomes a law will materially reduce the reve nue of the State, but it is believed that the finances arc in 6uch a condi tion that the relief given to these dif ferent interests can be afforded with out detriment to the Treasury. A bill has also been introduced to ! repeal the act authorizing curuula- live voting in the different Boroughs of the Commonwealth, the art has been fonnd towork unsatisfactorily, and there seems to be a strong feeling in favor of the proposed repeal. ine veioessi.i. ,ai. imcK auu ,i inf populaiion of alxat three thou from the executive, and the Gncrnor habitants, suffered from a very seems determined in kceninsr a sharp r i .1. r t 11 j i.riT i disastrous fire in the month of May eye on all doubtful Legislation. ,, . i., r . " J last, and manj of its citizens were Jfardr-r by a Burglar. New York, March 21. Charles Goodrich, brother of Hon. W. W. Goodrich, was found this morning in the basement of one of a row of handsome brown stone dwellings which he had just erected in Iegraw street, near Fifth avenue, Brooklvn, with a pistol-shot wound through his head, and a deep wound over his right cye, leaving but very little doubt that he met his death at the hands of some burglar. The deceas ed was a widower, fortv-two vears of age, ami was a man of considerable means. He had recently erected this row of brown stone buildings, some of which be had sold to good advan tage, and others he had let to desira ble tenants. The fifth one he had just let to a New lork merchant, completely furnished, and forthe past week he had been in the habit of sleeping in it for the purpose of taking care of it until the gentleman was ready to move in. W. W. Good rich was in the habit of seeing Charles nearly every day. He went to the house in Degraw street on Thursday, but finding it locked, sup posed that his brother was absent, but as he did not make his appear aenc this morning Goodich became somewhat anxious concerning him, and he went to the house again. Knocking at the door and ringing the bell brought no response, and he then decided to break into the place. He entered one of the adjoining houses, went up on the roof and thence down the scuttle. He found all the doors closed, and, in looking into the sleep ing apartment of his brother, found the sheets and blankets turned down as if he had just risen. He then went down into the basement, and on open ing the door found hs brother lying dead upon the carpet. Passing into the back basement, he found that the window had been bro ken open, and he became convinced at once that his brother bad been brutal ly murdered. The pane of glass in tbe window had been broken, so that a man might insert his hand and turn the fastenings. Tbe theorv is that some thief was aware ef the fact that Goodrich was in the habit of sleeping in this bouse alone, and supposed that ! li' carried considerable money about I mm. uiai lie nroKeiuw me piace, anc tioounch hearing the noise came down stairs w ith a pistol in his hand, ready to meet the intruder. The thief took up position from which be could knock him sensless as be entered the place, and it is believed struck him a blow over the right eye. This blow was sufficient to render him power less, and the thief then seized bis pistol and shot him. Then tbe fellow undoubtedly ri fled his pockets, for his pocket book as well as a valuable gold watch was gone. There was ' nothing about the place to give evi dence of a struggle having occurred, bet tbe position in which the body was found would lead tbe casual ob server to infer that he bad committed suicide. The pistol, a silver plated Ethan Allan revolver, was lying near Lis right hand. A little pool of coagulated blood was upon the hearthstone, while the head of the de ceased was lying about a foot away from this pool and resting upon the legs of his boots. The blood had been washed from the wound over his eye, and a towel, which bad been used for that purpose, was hanging over the sink. The supposition that be bad committed suicide was dis pelled by tbe fact that the pistol shot wound was in his left temple. The police were immediately informed of the murder, and the detectives visited the place, in order to obtain whatever clue they could to the horrible mys tery. Of course there arc numberless speculations in regard to the death. Even detectives are divided in opinion with regard to it, the most of them, however, believing in murder and re jecting the theory of suicide. The murderer bad evidently arranged the pistol and the dead man's lody with a view of creatine: the impression that be bad taken Lis own life. One of the importunate, juveniles who solicit pennies was asked, "where is your mother f She answered, diffidently, "She is dead." "Have you no father?" "Yes, Bir; but he is sick." "What ails bim " continued mo uwuuuer. -no nas got a sore finger, sir." "Indeed !" "Yes, sir." "Then why don't he cut it off?" "Please, sir," responded the little maid, "He basn't got anv money to buy a knife !" THE HO.HERSET RELIEF BILL NnuVltlUr. llartraaft Ret ru in It Witkoot nu Approval. llARRisBino, Ta., March 20, 1873. The following is a veto message sent to the Senate yesterday : Executive Mansion, IIarrisburq, March 20, 1873.) To the Senate and House 0 Rep rctentativct : Gentlemen I hereby return with out my approval Senate bill Xo. 312, entitled "an act for the relief of cer tain citizens of Somerset, Somerset countv, and which act is as follows: "Whereas, By a conflagration of unequalcd magnitude the town of Somerset, Somerset county, has been almost entirely destroyed and hun dreds of ber citizens made homeless and left in a destitute condition ; and whereas charity, and benevolence are as much the duties of States as of in dividuals; therefore, "Section 1. Be it enacted, Ac, That the sum of seventy-five thousand dollars is herebv appropriated- for the I benefit of the sufferers from the de jstructivc fire of the 9th of May, 1872, in Somerset, Somerset county : the i said sum to be received and distributed j among the said sufferers by authority and under the direction 01 the follow ing named individuals, as a. commit tee herebv appointed for the purpose: Wni. II." Sanner, A. II. Coffroth, Win. II. Picking, Wm. II. Koontz and W. J. Baer. "Sec. 2.

As the precedent established by this bill is of the highest inponanee to the people of this commonwealth, and one, if it becomes a law, that might thereby affect the public trea sury to aa extent that would soon, if followed up, deplete the same, I have I thought it proper to set forth the bill j in connection with my reasons for not approving of the same. made homeless and left in a destitute condition. 1 tie amount or their in- surance, or the extent of their loss, I have no iersonal knowledge of. Doubtless the loss was very great, and has commended them to the sym pathy, and justly so, of the citizens of this Commonwealth. And, I heed hardly add, I participate in that sym pathy, and would rejoice to exercise, so far as I properly can, an- power committed to my keeping for their re lief. The power invoked in behalf of this bill it is my duty to exercise, not in accordance with my personal feelings or sympathy, but in sub ordination to the rights of the people, whose property it is and for whose com mon welfare alone should it be exer cised. This bill appropriates the sum of $75,000 from the Treasury of the Commonwealth to the sufferers from the fire referred to. Its distribution is not confined to the destitute and needy, but it is authorized to be paid to any who may have suffered, the rich as well as the poor. There is, though, a higher test to which this bill must be submitted. and by which my action is determin ed. Can this bill be supported on principle, and is it in -conformity with public policy ? If so, it should re ceive my approval. If not, my duty is clear, however its performance may conflict with my personal wishes or desires. Tbe money in the Treasury of this Commonwealth belongs to its whole people and for their common benefit only is there authority to use it If the appropriation provided for by this bill is a proper exercise of that authority, w hat rulo or limita tion is left for the protection of the public treasury in the future? I sub mit there would be none, and if the rule established by this bill is impar tially administered, as it should lie, if a proper one, there soon would be no treasury requiring protection. Upon what principle can the Com monwcalth pay out of the Treasury moneys to one portion of her citizens for losses they may have suffered from like cause ? If tbe principle of the bill is sound, its operation should not lie confined to any one locality or people, but be extended by a general law to embrace the citizens of the en tire Commonwealth those who live out of cities orboroughs as well as those who reside in them to small fires as well as large ones to the house or barn of the famer or laborer, as well of those who reside in incorporated boroughs or paved cities. In each the owner may have lost his all Why not receive like compensation ? Again, if the principle is correct, should it be restricted to loss by fire? should it not embrace equally loss bv floods, tornadoes, Ac. ? Indeed, if the principle is 6ound, it is difficult to fix its limitation. Losses by fire can be guarded against by proper insur ance. Losses from other causes of ten cannot. There is no vear but what the high waters or floods in some of our rivers cause crcat and unavoidable destruction of property. n by should not the Commonwealth compensate the losers thereby equal ly with those from fire? And yet tucv never apply therefor. On tbe 6th day of September. 1869, one hundred and eight men were suf focated and destroved bv fire at the Avondalc mine, in this Common wcaun poor tailoring men, upon whose daily toil hundreds of women 1.1 and children were dependent for their daily bread. In the language of my lamented predecessor, "Never was a scene more heartrending witnpRsprl within the hounds of the Common wealth." If occasion was ever pre sented in which it would have been proper to appropriate public monevs to relieve private individual suffering, the widows and orphans of Avondale presented it. And vet no appropria tion was made to tbetn. Only the enactment of a law to incorporate the Avondale KcIht Association. There are to be found upon the statute books, so far as I am able to discover, but two precedents, and to which I am referred in support and justiucation or this bill. Une ap proved April, 14, 1845, for the relief or the citizens of Pittsburgh, and the other approved February 8, 1871, oppropriating $20,000 to the desti tute and needy sufferers by Cre in Mifllintown, Juniata countv. For the relief of Pittsburgh the sum of SjO.000 was appropriated, to dis tribute among the destitute by the authority and under the direction of the Mayor and tbe Select and Com mon Councils of tbe said city. It was the most extensive conflagration that ever occurred within this Com monwealth. It brought thousands of men, women and children to abso- lute want They had neither bread, raiment, or shelter. Their necessi ties required immediate relief. I might trulr sav, in the case of the sufferers of Pittsburgh, the appeal came from starving, shivering men, women and children. Active as is human sympathy, it was felt it might fail to respond as promptly and fully as the immediate necessities of this people required, and the Common wealth, mindful of their suffering, recognized the Divine commendation, "I was hungered and ye gave me meat, naked and ye clothed me". To have done less would perhaps have been to permit her own children to perish. The relief to Pittsburgh was not compensation for loss. It whs relief, immediate relief from act ual want to thousands of homeless, starving men, women and children, and when the ' immediate necessity ceased, the relief ceased. By an act, approved April 22, 184G, the original act was repealed and but $30,000 of the $50,000 was paid to the destitute of Pittsburgh. I do not recognize the appropria tion to the needy of Pittsburgh, and the subsequent action of the Legisla ture in repealing the same and with holding the moneys not drawn for their immediate relief, as any prece dent for the power attempted to be exercised in the bill herewith returned, ten months after a fire, to donate a pcjple $75,000,and shall dismiss it as such in the nirtner consideration 01 this bill. The danger of precedents, and the care that should be observed to avoid estah,ishin , bad ones is illustrated bv citcdof Mifflintown. A number of citizens are described in the act as having been made homeless and destitute. Two years ago $20,- 000 was taken from the Treasury of the Commonwealth and given to the "destitute and needy" of MifHintown, and now $75,000 is proposed to be ta ken and given not to the "poor nnd needy" but to the sufferers generally. 1 have had occasion before to observe, it is a maxim that "bad precedents make bad laws," and that when good they are only to be considered in construing, not the enactment of laws. That no other appropriation except the one cited is to be found upon the statute books of this Commonwealth, and the one to Pittsburgh, not recog nized for the reason given, as a pre cedent for this bill, is very conclusive evidence of the will of the people in relation thereto ; and that the one ci ted is not in accordance with their judgment. He arc not custodians of the svm pathies of the people, only of their political power. It is for them, not us to exercise the former, and thev have ever proven themselves prompt therein on every proper occasion. It is much safer in the hearts of the people than in the halls of legislation I will now briefly consider the pro position. Is this bill in conformity with public policy ? I might dismiss this question with the answer, if it is unsupported by principle, it must be unsound in policy. For no policy is sound not based upon principle. But I will now briefly consider the ques tion of policv, of the probable or even possible effect of this bill, if permitted to become a precedent upon the statute book. First, That if the Commonwealth pays from her Treasury to the losers bv one fire 6he is bound so to do to the losers bv every fire. Second, It is not the magnitude of the fire, but the individual loss and suffering, that is proper to consider. That may be as great from a small fire as from a large fire. Shall the moneys In-longing in common to those who live in rural sections be appro priated to the citizens of towns and cities, without a'corresponding right in the former to like appropriations for similar cause ? The chanty of the Commonwealth, to be just, should be as broad as her borders, embrace alike all her people. If policy for bids its extension to all, it should lie withheld from all. Just laws are impartial, equality is equity. Third, It would indirectly make the Commonwealth an insurance companv, with this disadvantage that whilst paving from her Treasury losses, she would be receiving no cor responding premiums. Therefore. Fourth, It would invite and justify similar applications, and I am told there arc some-now awaiting final ac tion on this bill. Every additional precedent in their favor would multi ply their applications, and perhaps only end with the last dollar in the State Treasurv. Fifth, The Commonwealth by law has provided for the organization of insurance companies to protect her citizens from losses by fire. For a small premium they can secure them selvea against such losses. Would it not be better they should do so than that the Commonwealth, from the Treasury, should do it ? Sixth, It never has been the policy of the Commonwealth to compensate her citizens for their individual losses or misfortunes from her Treasury. A firm adhesion to this rule is indispen sable. Any departure therefrom would soon result in its destruction, and leave the Treasury of the Com- monweaitu open to every incursion and unprotected from any. I have given this bill the most careful consideration commensurate with its importance, for it involves a principle and precedent of incalcula ble importance to the people of this Commonwealth ; and while, as ln-fore remarked, the sufferers of Somerset command my deepest sympathy, and any proper legislation for their benefit I would gladly approve, my duty to the people of this Commonwealth, whose rights in part I represent, and whose interest it is my duty to pro tect, demand the withholding of my approval of the bill herewith returned John F. Hartranft, Governor. rire at Jersey City. New York, March 21. About 12:30 to-day a fire broke out in the ferry avenue, Jersey city. A strong gale was blowing from the west, and efforts to check the flames proved un avaling, and tbe trips of the ferry boats were abandoned. The largo wooden passenger depot in the rear of the Jerry house took fire almost simultan eously and was destroyed. Several trains were hastily removed uninjured. ine new freight depot recently erec ted was also consumed with a larcrc amount of cotton, as was the old freight Taylor's saloon was partially destrov ed. ' The fire is supposed to have oriir- inated fiom locomotive sparks. All the vessels in the vicinitr were remo ved out of the reach of danarer. The fire was got undr control about half- past two. The depot for westward bound freight was saved. All the books and papers of the company were saved. The freight burned con sisted of 1,000 bales of cotton, 200 hogsheads of tobacco and some oil cake. Tbe loss by fire it is estimated will not exceed a half million dollars, which was covered ; the amount of in surance is unascertained. There is no interruption to traffic by tbe Erie Koad.

A large part of the letter is devoted to a review of the facts of the murder and the efforts made t obtain from the higher courts including that of the lant resort for a reversal of the decision of the lower court. The Governor says tho evidence demon strates the murder to have been pre meditated ; that the weapon used was a murderous ono, a fact which Foster, having been street car conductor, well knew when he deliberately chose it as a means of accomplishing his purpose. "The question presented to me," says the Governor "is whether I shall interpose theexecutive authority of the Stale, and commute the penalty of death, which the law awards to murder, for imprisonment for life. In support of the application i is urg ed that the verdict was accompanied with a recommendation t mercy, and that it is the duty of the Executive to consider one as a part of the other." This verdict and accompanying rec ommendation, together with the state ments and affidavits of a Iare maj ri ty of the jurors declaring ihm m-me ol their number did not hel'eve- Foster intended to kill Putman, that they thought imprisonment for life as great a punishment as he deserved, and that they would not have agreed to render a verdict of murder in the first degree if they had not been assured by one of their associates, who pro fessed to have knowledge of ihe law, that the verdict coupled with the rec ommendation, would insure commu tation of sentence, tbe Governor states bus been a source of great anxiety to him iu coming to a right decision, but adds: "This precedent of admitting after revelations of secret consultations of the jury room, for the purpose of annulling verdicts rendered as true under the solemnity of an oath, would be perilous in any condition of society and in the present defiant reign of crime such precedent would be fraught with lniinitc danger to public order. With a firm conviction there was no error in the ruling of the Judge at the trial, and that the evidence fully war ranted the jury in rendering a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree, there is nothing in the case which can justly commend it to executive clem ency, nnd he cannot interpose to mit igate punishment. If he did disre gard the evidence and judgment of the courts, the inevitable effect would be to impair the force of judicial decis ions and break down the barriers which the law has set up for the pro tection of human life. So far as de pends on me, the supremacy of the law will lie inflexibly maintained. Everv man who strikes a murderous blow at the life of his fellow must ! made to feel that bisownis in certain peril. If we cannot by firmness of purpose attain this end, we may soon be forced to acknowledge the disheart ening truth that there is nothing so cheap or so ill protected as human life." Details ! the RereatHwiadllac ef the Bank mt EagUad. New York, March 17. London papers of the 3d and 4th instant are at hand, with the following details of the great forgeries on the Bank of England. Jt was discovered on Saturday that bills to an enormous amount had been forged upon "I1 the principal houses in the city of London that these bills had Ix-en dis counted at the Wet Eud branch of the Bank of England, in Burlington Gardens, which dos an entirely dif ferent kind of husiuess from the parent establishment in the city. It is intended for the convenience of gentlemen and ladies and West End tradesmen, who might find it incon venient to journey to tho city in order to transact their occasional bus iness. It is not therefore ordinarily concerned with the large hill trans actions of city commerce, and in con sequence is less bound by strict reg ulations in dealing with any business of that nature which might accidently be brought to it Tho conspirators must have been aware of this, and they laid their plans for approaching the Bank of England by this weaker portion of hi defences. Warren, an American, who managed the plot was in no hurry, and took care to.gain a good footing before he ventured on his ultimate enterprise; ho Ix-havcd for some time just like an ordinary customer of good resources. He drew upon his balance and renewed it, but kept it always at a good figure. After a while be deposited some bills. They were good and genuine bills. Still he was careful not to be hastv, and he continued his transactions with the bank until he bad acquired the reputation of a person engaged in legitimate commerce and thoroughly trustworthy. At length the moment came for the presentation of the forged bills. They were discounted without hesitation and the authors of tbe fraud had, to all appearances, succeeded in pocketin? about one hundred thousand poumU. Ail these arrangements wcro masterpieces of ingenuity and patience, but tho bills themselves must have required the greatest amount of labor. In the first place, many of the large firms upon whom the bills purported to be drawn are in the habit of using a peculiar kind of paper, with certain water marks and printed matter. All this would have to be imitated, and as the bills were drawn on more than one firm there must have been several such intimations. There remained the drawing of the bills and the affixing of signatures, and each bill must have required a series of feats in successful forging. Nome bills were backed by several acceptors, so that there might easy lie as many as half a dozen signatures on a single bill. Yet the bills were so perfect that not one of them was questioned on til ground of the acceptance not appearing gavwpe. But the men who had exertod a skill, foresight and per severance sufficient to insuro the' un hesitating acceptance of forged bills could not escape one trivial blunder which revealed the whole plot They presented two bills in which the date of acceptance had been omitted. In quiry was, of course, made of the firm where acceptance was thus undated, and it was discovered that tbe bill was not genuine, and the whole series were then found to be forgeries. How much- further the plot might have been carried it is im possible to say. Advertisements pub lished caution bankers, brokers 'and all other persona against dealing iu a number of United States five-twenty-forty and funded loan bonds, amounting in the aggregate to $237,1 000, they, it is alleged, having been acquired out of the profits of the for gery. The loss to tbe Bank of Eng lund is stated at eighty thousand pounds. The Rothschilds arc men tioned as one of the firms on which tho forged drafts were drawn, but no Atjipr names are given. ; RailrwMl Arcldcat. Iiv u;i accide.it ivh cli occurred i.n the Cleveland & Piitahuryh Bu.lrad on Wednesday morning, four employ ees of the company were injured. The affair occurred at the uuveiinu crossing of the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad, and was a colli siou between a mixed train of the lat ter roud and a special one with the Paymaster's car on the Cleveland & Pittsburgh. The locomotive came together at ritrbt angles, inllictiiu' the principal damage on the "special." The Paymaster's car was completely demolished, and nil the persons on the train, except the Paymaster and engineer, were more or less hurt. The uiiuiei of th se injured tho most, ure : Patrick . Duffy, ..conductor; budly bruised and in a very painful, though not serious condition. ' Wm. Richardson, assistant road master; injured, it is feared, internal ly. ' ; ' ' . " Winlield Richer, fircuun ; bruised about the hips and ide; not serious. Ellison Bunting, brakeman; left arm sprained and face burned. Under a law of the State all trains are required to come to a halt at crossings, and not proceed until sig nals have interchanged, and it is diffi cult to see how the accident could have occurred. No explanation has yet been given. Tub Boston Adcrrtiier calls at tention to the fact that all the resolu tions in the Republican National Plat form of lJi'iS, on which Grant was elected President, containing a prom ise have been strictly fdliilied, to wit: Reconstruction has been completed ; equal suffrage secured t all races and classes ; repudiation extinguish ed; taxation, internal and external, reduced ; tbe rate of interest on the debt lowered ; the national credit raised; the currency relatively rais ed in value; economy enforced iu government expenditures; the na tional debt reduced ; the rights of naturalized citizens abroad secured by treaty ; generous provision made fir the soldiers and sailors of the war, and the war lines obliterated by a practical amnesty. In view of this reinarau!e aunesion to tin; pianonu resolutions oi isi3, ino.se oi ut-- rive un importance that the Liberals denied them during the canvass. 1 he Republicans, having left none of the promises of 1.S6S unfulfilled, there is no reason to believe that tlniV will fail to do as much fir those of 172. In this way the. resolutions of the great political parties at their quad rennial conventions will cease to be regarded as mere electioneering con trivances, and rise to the dignity of political creeds. President Grant, evidcntlv'HO regarding them, has en deavored to carry out strictly the plat form of 1 Sf)8, and in his recent in augural be shows his determination to adhere to that of 172 by his em phatic reference to the question of tli civil riirhts of the emancipated race and to the method of seeurin them.
