It is said of the late A. T. Stewart th
no amount of business capacity or into
lectual training on the part of apy rat
compensated for bad luck. In 'this r

aphorism that it was letter to be boi

Van Buren, ever became President, ai
he was terribly beaten when nominal

the only one who reached it. and he w
elevated from the Vice Presidency by tl
accident of the death of Qen. Taylor. I
wvs nominated for the Presidency
1850, and received the electoral vote
only one State. Five Governors ;df Ni
York have aimed at the Executive chi

reached it. It will be contrary to i
precedents if Mr. Tilden does not add t

We publish from the'semi-annual c

following figures showing the number
failure.'* throughout the United Stat
and Canada for the first two quarters
tho present year together with 1
amount of liabilities, comparing t
name with the corresponding figures.

This shows a startling increaso, be
at the number of lailftres and amount
liabilities for tho six months just cc
eluded, but attention is drawn to the fi
that this increase mainly occurred In t
first quarter of the year. Although t
fgures for the three months justclos
are somewhat larger than those in t
quarter of 1875, therein
mwked decline in tho figures lor the ?
X.quaI?r of the current, year,

1,000 than in the preceding three month*

an improvement of over forty per,
cent. This variation is greater than ever
e before in the name period,and haupilv in
e thin instance tho variation is in tho right
c direction. The liabilities for the six
quarters already published aro as fol*
lows: 1876?First quarter, $43,000,000;
" second quarter, $33,000,000; third quart
ter, $54,000,000; fourth quarter, $70,000).
000. 1876? First quarter, $04,000,000;
second quarter, $43,000,000. By adding
these together the liabilities of each quar1
ter will average over $61,000,000 j?er
- quarter, so that thu liabilities of the
i quarter just closed ($43,000,000) are
$8,000,000 leta than the average.
Notwithstanding the large increase for
the six months which the above figures
imply the marked declino in failures for
. the past quarter affords soinoencourager
rnent to the belief, now very generally
entertained, that we have seen the worst
ofleets of the present depresaion, so far
as casualties of . this character are con'
cerned; Jt is true that business fontinf
1 ilea in a very depressed condition; that
1 the results of trade, with rare exceptions,
have been exceedingly unsatisfactory;
?!>?? vnlimji nontinua to decline, and that
j uncertainty anil anxiety exist in all quarr
tern. Yet, in the face of all this, there
. is comfort iu the reflection that the cause
' which produced thin condition of things
have been almost completely reversed,
In tho place of /eckless over-trading we

Washington, J uly 14.
Upon voting a pension to the widow of
General Custar, Williams, of Michigan,
asked leave to introduce a bill granting a
pension of $80 a month to the father and
mother of.Gon. Custar.
Mr. Rusk and Mr. Ainaworth objected,
on the ground of Uh irregular way of
coming before the House.
Mr. Cannon suggested that the Com*
mUtee on Invalid .Pensions slioulU at nn
early day report a bill granting a pension
to the children of the men that fell
underlie lead .of Custar.
The House then weiit into Committee
of (he Whole, Monroe in the chair; on the
bill for the protection oUho Texas frontier..
After a uhort discussion, Mr. Dunnell
opposing that part of the bill which allows
the United States troops to pursue
marauders in Mexicq, the committee rose
for a few moments, and Buik,* lrom the
Committee on Invalid Pensions, reported
a bill granting a pension of $50 a month
each Co the father and mother of General
Custar, and it was passed withoflt divi-.
sion. ,
Mr. Couger moved that (he Committee
on Pensions be instructed to report tho
bill for the relief of tho families of those
who fell under Ctmtar, but Mr. Jenka
objecting the House again went into
Committee on the "Wlioio on the Texas
b.ill , . ,
After a long discussion the committee
vpted on''the. bill by sections, tho first
secllou providing for the military force
on the Rio Grande being amended in
several particular^.
Mr. Smalls offered an amendment providing
that no troops shall be withdrawn
from South Carolina so long as the militia
of that State (peacefully assembled) are
assaulted, disarmed, taken prisoners and
then massacred in cold blood by lawless
bands of men invading that Stute from
tho State of Georgia. He sent to the
Clerk's desk' and had read a newspaper
statement of the Hamburg massacre of
six colored men. * '
Mr.. .Cochrane asked Smalls who the
writefr of the article was. '
Mr. Smalls replied that a let for had
been written fo him by an eyewitness, and
he had Bent it for publication.
Mr; Cochran?"Whoia.tho writer ?
Mr. Smalls?If the gentleman (leaires

writer jnay be Jellied he will not get it
from me.' ite is a lawyer in Hie town'of
Aiken.
Mr. Conger charged that the cuttirfg
down of tl)9 army waa to prevent the
troops ' from being Kent into the States
where lawless men take the lives pf peaceable
people.
Mr. Cox said the object of the amendment
is to get up a cry through all this
land this fall'for bad purposes. Malignant
hate, s^ite and bloody shirtism are
all that are in it.
Mr! Hortridge said it was intended to
Bubaervo partisan purposes. The amendment
did groaa injustice to an honorable
and' gallant gentleman. General McButler
and the people of Georgia and the
people of Auguata had no immediate
representative present. The hand of
providence pressing heavily on the gifted
gentleman, (Stephens) and it waa
therefore his, (Hartridge) pride and
pleasure to protest against auch imputation
as that convoyed by the amendments
on a community distinguished for its
intelligence, integrity, virtue, obedience
to law and constitution, no ono regretted
the unfortunate occurences at Hamburg
more than the peoplo of Georgia really
did. The Democrats were demanding
Investigation and stamping
the matter with their condemnation. An
investigation was then going on and it
would have been well to wait until' the
remits of that inquest wore published be
foro throwing such a ure-nranu inio mis
assembly.

, Mr. Rainey made an earnest appeal on
behalf of his race and asked what white
men on military parade on the 4th of
July would think of. a dqmand by two
'mefa, driving In a buggy, that they should
break their ranks and let them pass.. He
asked the proud southerners, who boasted
of their bravery and their chivalry, if
they would stand it. Did they expect
men of his race to submit to continual
persecution and massacres? He asked
the Houbo in the name of humanity and
of God to tell them whether they should
be American citizens, with all the rights
and immunites of such, or vassals and
slaves again.
Withoutcoming to a vote on the amendment
tho committee rose-and the House

Mr, Edmunds said on the bill came
from the House of Representatives it appropriated
$5,872,860, the Committee on
Appropriations reduced . that amount
$900,000, and then by amendments increasing
the bill to about $930,000, making
an increase of about $36,000 as
compared with the House, bill, the Senate
deserted the Committee on Appro*
priations by re-instating all the provisions
of this bill, which the committee
recommended to strike out; and had added
other amendments which made the
sum total of the bill now about $7,000,000,and
it was done in view of the revised
estimate of engineers. He submitted the
following as a substitute for the bill:

An attempt was now made to'kill the bill,

He hoped,.now, that the Senate would
accept the bill as it came from the Hpuse, ,
and asked the friends of the measure to
waive all sf>eQ2aliuiprovements'foi; their
own localities.
Mr. Thurman said that Mr; Edmunds'
substitute proposed to place$4,000,000.in
the hands of a single Qtiicer .for disbursement.
He did not think the oho selected

one wholly removed frbm politics. Ho
gavo notice he would submit an amendment

?Tho following ia from Fetterman:
Three soldiers, couriers from Gen. Terry
at the mouth of the Big Horn, have just
arrived. .Gen. Terry's dispatch to Crook
confirms Custer's fate and implies very
plainly that had Custer waited one day
longer Gibbons would have joined him.
Terry is anxious for Crook to join the
forces, make plana and cxecute thorn regardless
of the rank. The Indians
are still hovering about the Little

pany E, 19th Cavalry, with 25 men and
Frank Gruard and Baptiste Powerier,
United States scouts, went on a reconnoisance,
were discovered and surrounded,
and followed into the timber of the
Big Horn mountains, where, bv hitching
the horses to the' trees and abandoning
them, thd men were enabled to escape on
foot by way of a ravine in, the rear. They
all got back alive, and probably this diversion
saved tho camp lrom a grand attempt

Snake Indians, 200 strong, joined ua here

soon no offensive operations will be likely,
to take place till the arrival of the 5th
