The Con- i volition therefore passed an ordinance authorizing the President to borrow money enough to defray the expenses of the Convention, to be repaid by the next General Assembly, and upon this security (icneral Toombs hast lent the convention $25,000. Some twenty five years ago thirteen , men,six of Massachusetts and seven of New York, entered into an agreement that, a? each died, tho nurvivors should attend bin funeral, and that the departed nhould appear to tho others after death, if possible. Only two now Burvive, one in Springfield, Mrm, the other in Albany, and so far as known no communi cationi havo been received from the other world. The SpringGeld survivor is sixty one yearn old, and says he hag slept alono three or four nights following the death of each of tho others, in the vain hope of hearing from then). We are indebted to Mr. John J.Kcilly, of Wheeling, who in traveling in the West, for the Denver (Col.) Tribune of the Int. In the column of market quota* tions we notice that tho wholesale price of nnils is $-110 for 10s. Butter retails at 2 5 and 30 cents, eggs 15 and 20; potatoes are sold at 2$ cents per pound, and cab* bago at 2; beef steak at 15 nnd 20, and mutton at 10 and 18; liny at $14 to $15 per ton. We observe among tho advertisements that the Grand Central Hotel (pictures of which resemble tho McLure House) accommodates the public at $3 00 |>er day, which price includes "a view of the mountains for 300 miles." The petroleum trade of the country ho.* attained to enormous proportions, and there is scarcely a civilized spot on the face of the habitable globe to which thirt cheapest of all illuminators is not now shipped. There arc now under en* gagemeut at New York, Philadelphia mid lSaltiinore fully two hundred vowel* to load with petroleum lor diHerein parts of the world. It is estimated that twenty thousand oil well* have (Iiiih far been dug (in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, at an aggregate cost of one hundred and ninoty two million dollars. They have yielded about eighty eight million barrels of oil, valued at the wells at three hundred million dollars, or four hundred million dollars at the seaboard. This Newark papers tell of a visitation of" that pestiferous insect, the mosquito," during the past five days to that city, the like of which ha* seldom occurred in its history. They have pervaded its every district and made out door life in the evening a burden to the soul. Only the mo><t carefully net-guarded houses escape tho nuisance, and pedeslrianisni, after the nun has pet, means cxerciso of both arms to keep the skin free of the blood thirsty little wretches. .Smokers are in demand as preventive agents, and any expedient to Keep mo mosquitoes cn is eagerly cmbraced. The city, it appears had a nitnil*r visitation nome years ago, vrhicli necessitated the closing of the stores generally, and there are apprehension*! that there is about to be a repetition of the enforced suspension. The insects are described na being larger than'usual, too, and their bite? to be attended with all of the most annoying eflecta of amosqito inoculation when only the usual number are about. The consumption of horse flesh in Paris, begun during the . reign of the Commune, in steadily increasing. For the first Mix mouths of the present year the butchers who deal in this kind of meat have delivered forconsumption live thousand two hundred and eighty three horses,donkeys and mules, which furnished nine hundred una 111 iv nine tnousand seven Hundred and thirty kilos (about two million pounds of meat (net). During the cor* responding period of 1870 the number of those animals was four thousand four hundred and twenty two, which gave about one million seven hundred thousand pounds. The increase is, therefore, of a marked character. The persona who endeavor to popularize the use of horse liesh ailirm that it is more wholesome and more nourishing than beef, although often not tpiite so agreeable. Paris contains more than fifty butcher's shops specially devoted tethis artide. A very good pot*au*feu may be made with the inferior morsels at the price of 5 cents and 0 cents the ponnd. The choicest pieces, filet, undercut, ?&c. are much higher in their cost, ^ Nut unlit j-'k Steamers. New York, August 25.?There were but three regular steamers for Kurope to-day, but they nil carried more than a full compliment of the usual freight The White Star Line supplemented the number of vessels by the addition of an extra one?the "Federico"?which they chartered for a special voyage to Liverpool.

The Fate Unit It an lief alien nr. AtkliiMouVi NucceMor in the Third District 1 Our readers have been informed of tbe JiflicultieH and danger* encountered by Mr. G. W. Atkinion during the term he ^ erred an Revenue officer in the Third I District under Gen. Duval. His raid in- ' to the Southwestern part of the District laid bare tho fact that the government J waa oxtenaively defrauded of revenuo s by illicit diatilleriea. lie and hit ?lepu- ' lien made a very aucceaaful raid on theie c distilleries, ferreting out And breaking up the machinery of a considerable num- t ber. However, the make (perhaps we * should any the "worm of tbo still") waa } only scotched and not exterminated, for ] no sooner had ho and his raiders turned I their backs than many of these illicit < conccrns started up again, perhaps not in J the name npot but ineome adjacent local- , ity, and the work of defrauding the rov- I snue went on afreah. 1 Owing to the thoughtless and almost ( wicked stupidity of a revenue officer at ( Washington, Mr. Atkinson's private report to tho Department was given to the 1 public, in consequence of which his use- ( fulness an an olliccr was deatroyed and his life put in jeepardy, and for a time he was obliged to leave the District to \ cscape tho assassination that has fallen upon his successor. i As to what has happened to this sue- i cessor, in tho prosecution of tho raids be* gun by Mr. Atkinson, the following account in the llinton llcrald will show. , .. uu... On Monday, the 20th, about two o'clock in tho evening, an Capt. Doolittle and hid squad were crowing from liluestone (wherethey had destroyed au illicit distillery on the land of one of tho Lillys,) ( to the (iiles, Fayette and Kanawha turnpike, they were tired upon by some nersonn concealed in the brush. Capt. Doolittle being in front was struck in the arm, his horse becoming frightened ho attempted to dismount when two more , shots were lired, one taking elTect in his leg. He was then taken to the house of Mr. (Irenf^-Meador, and a messenger j started after Dr. Gooch. who was found at Mr. (.'lark's. The doctor found no bones broken, but painful llcsli wounds, and dressed them with his usual skill and care. Capt. Doolittle wan removed Tuesday on a litter to the mouth of Blue- j stone, where a bateau conveyed him to this point. He took the night train and left for home. This attempted assassination is a most horrible, and dastardly crime, and a deep stain upon the goo(J name of our country. Every citizen of the country should earnestly endeavor to ferret out the per- : petrators of this most infatnoun and cow- j ardly assault upon an eflicicnt and deserving officer in tho quiet and fearless discharge of his duty. Tho would-be i assassins must be brought to justice, and : we call upon ollicers and citizens to leave no stone unturned, and relax no eil'ort until they are captured and brought to trial. Our comity isdisgrnced by these ( lawless men. From all wo can learn, Capt. Drtulittle is a most excellent oflicer. and has discharged the dangerous and disagreeable duty assigned him in a most thorough and ellectivu way. Ho has de- , stroved a large number of illicit diatillerifs (some twenty), yet it was done in ui> orderly and ollicer-likeuianner, which reflected credit upon himself and men. Wo deeply regret his wound*, and hope he may soon recover and continue his work until every illicit disiillery is destroyed. ^ I C.fKcr From ICev. Mr. Hall. , August 17, 1877. i kilters Intclllgcnrcr: i 1 greatly enjoyed a visit to tho National Cemetery at Arlington Virginia. Mrs. , Washington's grand-stfh, 0. \V. Custis, ; resided here lor many years and was the i owner of the estate. He was the adopt- i ed son of Cieneral Washington. After the death of Mr. Custis this became the properly of his daughter, the wife of Hen. li. K. Lee. During the war, tho family left ho suddenly that many household articles were left behind. Then the ( rounds and buildings were used for military purposes, ami were subsequently bought by the U. 8. Government at a tax sale. Two hundred acres were set apart for u National Cemetery. This is truly a cily of (he dead, containing 15,5S9 inhabitants. Tho graves have all been leveled, so that the ground* show a smooth surInra Tim (frnwoii nr? liw nnifni-m head ami loot Htone*, stretching out in long extended liue? under the oaks. The gra*n in green and here, and there the iiowcrR bloom over the dust of the fallen patriot*. A beautiful but plain granite monument marks the place of tho "unknown." On the linw of march and battle from Hull ]tun to the WildernesH and on to Kichmond, were gathered bone* and skeletons of 12,111 Holdiers, never identified by relative or comrade. Thene bones were here carefully arranged and laid away. Over them stand* the monument, surmounted by four canon, bearing tho following inscription: "llencath this Mono Repose the bone* of two thousand ono hundred nuit i unknowu foldlera Rut hew) after the war from the fields of, Hull Kuu, am I tho Kappahinnock. Thtlr remains could not 1*? identified, but their names and ileal hit are recorded lit th? archies of their country: nnd It* grateful citi*ens honor ilium ai their noble army of martyr*. 31ay they rest in jwaco. ticpU A.

Labor Hardships. Jennio June in the Baltimore American; " We have heard a ureal deal lately of tho hardships of workingtnen, and every one knows that they are very real iind tangible, hut they are not always exactly what their self'elected champions would i have us Mieve. In the first place the working man at $1,25 per day la always spoken of as having a large family to 14 support." Now, the probability is that Rt leaat half the men who are employed at that rate are unmarried, and of those ] wlin nrn marrim! iinil liavw ? fow runke even the pretense of lupporting it, 1 but leave that duty to their wives, who manage it upon a dollar a day, oftentimes ] Rained by washing or equally arduous work, with the drawback ot not only hav ing to support the family but care for them, waah for them, and ?ew for them , in addition. j Pjlrpons who own unimproved lota " should build upon them now, while labor and materials aro both very chop. THE BULL MOVEMENT. ['lie i'ultlle Are Neller* and Not i Huy cr* ol NlockN. J Niw Yobk, Auguit 26.?The closing lay of the week witnessed the highest ^ trices of the present bull movement in 'j locks. The Evening 1'otl says that tho c arge speculators who have advanced ; irtces in the past few weeks by their "" teadily continued large purchases are ipparentlv in no way alarmed at the argo and, up to the present time, in- J ireasing amount of investment stock vhioh is iKiurinc into tho m&rlri?t for aula Their theory Th that investors who, an he market advances, nro Helling etockn thich they have carried for a long time, [ will at Home timo in the near future irhen the tonnage of the roads shows a arge increase, buy back their stocks at * he advance, and that neither the din- 1 dosurea during the past eighteen months t )( corporate unsoundness and unwise , management?that which kept upsuch a lvalry between the trunk linen an to | nike the roads poor even with an imnense tonnage, nor the prospect that, ax , the outcome of the recent striken, tho j Object of railroad regulation will be car- ( rieit into federal politico (as it was in i Wisconsin into state politico at the time i of tho Granger craze), will have any in- I Uitencu in deciding substantial people to < ihun railroad shares an inventuientn. j Timo alone will determine whether the : Wall street speculators, who have millions depending on the correctness of . their calculations, are right or wrong. Certain it is that within the past three J ar four weeks there has been a ilow of c investment stock to the market which is 1 in volume without procedent. It in not \ uncommon uow to have a delivery of a i hundred shares of stocks made with eight to ten small certificates varying in | amount from one to twenty shores each, i and each ono standing in the name of an investor who had hia stock transferred to him several years ago. We saw yesterday a delivery of one hundred shares of one oi the trunk line " stocks in which there were thirteen shnres, t the smallest being a one-share certificate 1 which was dated in August, 1873, and the ! largest a twelve-share certiiicate, dated in t i.876. This selling of stocks by full owners? J that is by persons who do not borrow but I hold only what they can pay for in full? > is noted by the lirnis which make a spe- } cialty of investment business. t It is true that one speculator may easily buy all of this kind of stock which comes into the market, for the sum total of these driblets may not make a total of . more than ten thousand shares in a single Jay. What the speculator buys, how- ' ever, be takes on a margin, and is compelled to borrow from 80 to 00 per cent I on the purchase. I It need not be said that it is a moat important difference to every interest connected with the stock market whether the great bulk of the stocks of the leading roads are owned and widely distributed or are held in largo blocks and carried on borrowed money. It is no uncommon thing to see investors pull to the extent that they have on a falling market, but, as said, it is exceptional to sco such sustained selling on a rising market. As we have before written, if the out- , ttide public can be induced to come in as : buyers at present or even higher prices Wall street will profit largely. It they refuse to take back their stocks then the acknowledged strength of the leading speculators will lie fully required to carry their load. And, it is proper to add, it will not be < well fur other simulators of a "bearish" ' turn to underrate the strength of the 1 present "bulla" and. sell stock "short," for not since the time that the late Com- . modore Vanderbilt was in the market behind New York Central (at the time of the SO per cent scrip dividend) has so j much capital been back of any specula- ] lion as there is now supporting* the pres- t ;nt one. 1 MASY TTIItrAKE I91(TKK1.\G from tbe effects of the warm weather and . ure debilitated, are advised by physicians , to take moderate amounts of whisky two or I three times during the day. In a little while those who adopt this advice frequently increase the number of "drinks" and iu time become confirmed inebriates. A beverage which will not create thirst for intoxicating liquors, and which is intended especially for the benefit of debilitated persons, whether at home or abroad, is Dr. ? schenck? Sea Weed Tonic. Containing ! the juices of many medicinal herbs, this ' preparation does not create an appetite for i the intoxicating cup. The nourishing and i life supporting properties of many valuable ' natural productions contained in it and ] well known to medical-men have n most ] strengthening influence. A single bottle of of the'ionic will demonstrate its valuable qualities. For debility arising from sick- ; uess, over exertion or from any cause what- j over, n wineglassfnl of Sea Weed Tonic j taken after meals will strengthen the itom- i ach and create nn appetite for wholesome ' food. To all who arc about leaving their j homes, we desire to sav that tho excellent I efleets of Dr. Scheuck's seasonable rem- ! edies, Sen Weed Tonic, nnd Mandrake Pills, ' are particularly evident wlieu taken by J those who nro injuriously affected by a 1 chaugo of water and diet. No person j should W ave homo without taking a supply t of these safeguards along. For sale by all 1 druggists. cod. ] niKO. j 110X WORTH.?On Friday evening.
