THE LIAPISO APrOIXTMENTS.
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.

4K B 1IARKIKBI RU LETTER.
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.

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. That the State Treasurer
is herebv directed to pay the afore-
sa.u coui 111 i iiec, or 10 u. o. us . u-,
ber, designated by the ame, for the.
purposes aioresuui, wie sum 01 u,
000 out of any money in the Trea
sury ; Provided, That the commit
tee named in this act shall file in the
office of the Auditor General, and in
the office of the Register and Record
er of Somerset county, an itemized
statement, containing the names and
the amount paid to each person, with
in thirty days after such payment."
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

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

inated fiom locomotive sparks. All
the vessels in the vicinitr were remo

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

will not exceed a half million dollars,
which was covered ; the amount of in
surance is unascertained. There is no

Rev. DrT

T...w .1. ...1 . . n t. lllt..rilli
Tvng, declining to interpo.M! executive
authority in the case of roster, under
sentence of death for the murder of
Avery Putman, and stating the cir
cumstances and considerations on
which his decision is founded. 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

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.
