The real estate shrinkage in oilies has of
couietob? a matter of grave consideratiou.
The city assessment of the value fa
for taxation of re&l and personal proper- th
\y in Baltimore han just been completed, tri
huiI aiuounta to lesa than was expccted. on
It in stated lliat the Assessors have rec- J?
ogniied the shrinkago of value due to-the mi
business uepression 01 mc iui iew jc*rw, t*
mil also the fact that the standard assess- ^
went was made whou the currency was ^
largely depreciated and rosl estate was 'fl
bought and sold at very high figures, ar
The Baltimore Sun estimates that l!(
a largo proportion of middle |Jj
class property in that city was 0li
ten years ago, assessed at from thirty ro
to fifty per cent beyond what it would
now bring in tho market. The Sun '
strongly urges economy in the current be
expenses of the municipal government, to
In Boston and Philadelphia, it is said, ^
the Ahsessors find abundant evidences of a[
the shrinkage of values when they com* at
pare the estimated value with the mar- be
ket value of tho property to-day. They
will be compelled to reduce the assess- J
ments, (and City Councils must in turn T!
reduco tho expenses of municipal gov- tlj
ernment. These are the only alternatives ri

Tm insurance men of New York are j'j
trying to prevent any firework* demon- m
stration on the Fourth of July. In the ?*
discuuion of the matter it was stated that
there were ninety.three firea in New York ra
on last Fourth?seven were from Chinese fa
lanterns ami tho balance were caused
by Are-cracker*, blue-lights and other
firework". The probability is that the p,
pyrotechnics of the Fourth will be con- ki
lined to tho parks in New York. ?
Tit* Prtnro nf Wale*. the next Kinc of li
England?if bIic has any more Kings? tl
continues to grossly misbehave. Tliere **
is a new ncandal in his notorious associa* ^
tion, "liason,"' Mr. Smalley call* it, with e:
"Lady S.," and tho London gossip is that
hia wife, tho Princess, has got to the end tc
of her patience and philosophy, and in jjc
going home to her father, the King of 0j
Denmark. Rut this latter part of the
Htory is not generally credited. The wife "
who could say years ago, as the Princes* r)
is credited with saying, that "Bertie (Al- 0I
bert) lias loved many women, but he has 6
loved me best of all," is not likely, with ?
the added motives and strength of added j,
years, to fail in forgiveness now; But it fi
is very wretched business for a man ex- ci
posed any day to take the crown of Eng- 0
land to make himself the occasion of such j
scandals as these. v

Scarcely any of the Presbyterian P
churches but will havo its nice little Vl

The Free Church of Scotland ban got a ^
particularly interesting one, that of Prof. |r
W. Robertson Smith, of Aberdeen, who
is a member of the Bible Keviaion Committee.
Writing the article on the Bible
for the Encyclopedia Britannica,he inad- '
vertently allowed himself to uso Rome '
of hit scholarahip, even to the extent c,
of indicating that he did not hold to p
the doctrine of the complete inapira* j,
tion of the Bible; stating, for exam- ,1
pie, that inatructiona and laws which in P
the book of Deuteronomy appear as ut- c
tered by Moaea are certainly poat-Mosaic, a
and bo could not, aa a matter of fact, have "
been uttered by him. Pending lift trial *
liofurn llin rnirt <M>nf>pnl aaAmlilw (nr '
here*/, the assembly suspended him from ft
bin duties aa professor by a vote of 401 to tl
113. But severnl clergymen warned of 1
the danger of passing this ministerial "
ccnsure, and expressed their conviction ?
that such views must be faced, and tra- f,
ditional beliefs abandoned, if they were a
incapable of proof. n

Busanroa Memoranda.?The Wells- ti
burg Uerold reports that P. W. & Ky. o
stock has improved very much in that a
county within the last few days. The 11
same paper also says that "Assessor Kimberland
has found some 5132,000 worth j
of taxable property in lirooko county a
more than it appears existed before; and a
the eflect of his find it is estimated is to si
reduce the tax necessary to be levied in a
order to raise a stated sum of money, ?
about five per cent oa the taxable prop- aj
erty previously known to exist." f(
The Allegheny Mail,' representing the ^
iron manufacturing industry, complains J
of the high rate of interest charged to ?
persons in need of money. Millions, it w
says, are hoarded by calculating men, a
who trust no investment, and only part ti
with a little 'of their abundance at usu
rioua rates. Bo templing is this traffic
that real estate is often sacrificed, that
the proceeds may ho used in loans "on g
call," at heavy charges. p
Boston grows blue every day over its U
diminishing export trade, and it ia now u
announced that the ocean steamers of the B
Leyland lino will hereafter load at New b
York, instead of the Hub. Thero are si
hardly 50,000 bushels of grain in the ele- w
vator at East Boston, very little is on the w
way, and the lower charge? to New York w

d examination into the aflairi and
oapecui of the company resulted in a
sling of natiafaction.

ruction earn daily running upon it.

e*half mile daily. This carries the
ad to deep wnter on tho Huron
rer no iun; a connection win iw
&de with lako navigation as noon aa the
its are laid to that point, which will be
' the lit of July or earlier.
The material and work bo far are all
at Uie friends of the road could desire,
te rails weigh 3f> lbs. to the yard and
e well laid with snlice bars on solid oak
*. 1 rode over the road twice, some*
iiea at a speed of thirty miles or more
r hour, and found it aa smooth as an
il road. The completed portion of the
ad is mostlv over heavy iillii and deep

Din Norwalk to the lower lovel of navibio

cn allowed to exceed tifty-two feet

Tho rails aro being delivered for this
artiun of thfi line, and will probably Iks

You are aware that it was determined
i build the Wheeling & Lake Erie Kail>ad
on a narrow or three-foot gauge. To
lis very many subscribers to tho stock
! the road objected, influenced generally
ir the idea that a narrow gauge railroad
to a certain extent a toy road. _ Witessing
the operating of the few miles of
>ad already completed has dispelled this
bjection. On the day on which it wao
rst opened upward of 4,000 people were |
krried between Norwalk and Milan, and
irge numbers since. The publio
avc become thoroughly satisoil
that freight and passengers
in be carried as well on a three-foot as
n a wider gauge, and the stock sub:riptions
arc now being freely paid in.

ic resources of the company ought to
rove sufficient to carry it forward to the

ear, after which it* extension to Alarn's
Ferry, in the nature of thing*, can
ot be long delayed. This may seem to
oil to be a very sanguine; view of the
roapects of our road, but 1 think the

That .HlMisNlpiti Horror*
It is scarcely probable that athoroughr
impartial opiuion of the killing of
udge Chisholm and his brave daughter
nd infant son, and of two other Kepuhliin
leaders, can be obtained from the Reublicans
of that vicinity, but the followig
expression from ex-Governor Towers
eserves serious attention, (iovernor
'owers preceded Ames in the Executive
hair in 1874; was elected by Democrats,
nd has been and is closely identified
rith the Democratic party of that .State,
le will probably be accepted by all as a
ritnesp, and ho nays:
1 think it *as the moet unprovoked
nd barbarous example of foul treachery
liut has ever come under my observation,
can expreu my sentiments in no terms
rhich would adequately condemn the
utra^eouBneua of the afl'air. I have been
cquaintod with Judge Chisolm and his
imily, and know the indomitaple courge
which they all possessed. There
ever lived a man endowed with more
ourage than Judge Chisholm. luimeditely
after the tragedy Miss Chisholm
ilegraphed to me, and without the loss
f a moment 1 repaired to her bed-side,
nd from her dying litis I received a deailed
account of the bloody affair, Khc
eemcd to think that in giving up her
wn life to savo that of her father she had
one nothing more than a simple duty,
nd thought that her actions were not
nything remarkable. In my opinion,
ho preformed one of the most courageous
cts ever known to the world, and the
len who committed this most foul muror
nf innnrpnf anil niilpinlir nonnln
bould bo hunted down with untiring efjrta
until they are brought before the
ar of justice. Political causes undent*
blv brought the affair about. Had
udge Chisholm co-operated with the
emocratic party in the manner he did
ith the Kepublican; ho wonld have been
popular Democratic leader in that seeon.

tumors of his weakness reached the city,
ut thoy were not credited. lie was asgned
to a very important institution,
hero personal piety and strict morale
ere indispensable. Bofore six months
ere out he was accused of gross irreguiritien,
of vniting drinking places and
(ring home from night meetings in a
;atc of gross intoxication. His superira
refused to believe anything against

rength of his New York position, he
lade the acquaintance of an intelligent
idy in the neighborhood and married

toney to return to the city. Still the
tan waa allowed to occupy the chief
lace in one of the most important and
loral institutions in New York. "When
10 man's conduct became so notorious
lat it was impossible to keep him in his
lace, his friends atill clung to him. He
