there being comparatively Iiitle demand
for discounts^ ami a good request for prime
commercial papers. Much attention is
a^in being given to the question of a resumption
of work in the iron trade, and
there are those, and not few in mimtor,
who predict that a settlement will be
brought about l>etween employers and
employes inside of ten days, and that this
means'the beginning of good times for
Pittsburgh once more. Whatever grounds
there may be for this belief, it is certainly
rery generally held among financiers and
merchants. Should it prove true it will be
the financial salvation of many small
trailers whose living was depedndent upon
the prosperity of the laboring classes.

I'iiiLADEi.i'iiiA, August 21.?An investigation
into the loss of heavily insured vesfc-U
from Mexico to the United States reveals
some startling facts quite as sensational
as the attempt to sink the bark L. E.
Cann. The Dos Ainigos, a large bark,
with a cargo invoiced as sugar and insured
for?$07,000 in the Atlantic Mutual Marine
Insurance Company of New York, was
lbst in aj manner suspiciously like the
Caun, and the steamers of tlic Alexandre
Mexican Line have several times since reported
having seen her floating in the Gulf
with holes bored in her hull.
Subsequent inquiries at Vera Cru/. disclosed
the fact that the shipment of such a
<~.uyo as the Dos Amigos was supposed to
Jiave ken loaded with, was not only improbable
but almost impossible. The insurance
was, however, subsequently paid.
A Mexican shipper, speaking to a reporter
rImiih the issuing of bogus cargoes, says:
"Tbe ilrst transaction of the kind of which
I have any knowledge was in 1870, but i
have been unable to lind the record and 1
cannot now recall the names of the vessel
or of the i?ersons implicated. A man
named Zorilla seems to have been the pioneor
in the business. In 1878 he shipped
a cargo of merchandise to New York from
Vera Cruz. That cargo was invoiced at
V27,(?00, arid was insured in the American
Llovds. The brig Unique was selected as
ti* vehicle " of that venture, and
dm was said to have sunk to the
twwoin of the ocean, without any provocation
whatever, beforo she had been
a week at sou. The next venture was
tlie Dos Amigos, in which the Atlantic
Mutual was the victim to the tune of $7S,
&?, and now we have the L. K. Cann, with
a cargo invoiced at $120,000. In both
these instances Mr. Lane seems to have
been interested, and in the latter he had
for an associate a man named Granes, who
is a new accession to the former fraternity.
In this instance the Philadelphia company
sought to be tnade the victim, for the
reason, probably, that the New York companies
had become too well posted in
tliAt'sort of business to be Again drawn into
tin. Inin
It is positively stated thai theCarin was
three months in the harbor of Vera Cruz
picking up her alleged cargo, and wca
charging tremendous mte3 for transportation
of freight?fully two-thirds more than
is charged by the Alexandres. This is a
highly suspicious and Bignificant fact,
going to show the boldness and audacity oi
the Can 11 fraud.

quarantined against Brownsville and Mat

considerable places in the interior of tin
State of Tanipieulns, have also imposed i
strict quarantine, and it is thought Mon

and mails coming here fm
the interior also change hands there. T<
show the extent of the disease here am
the short duration of many cases tbepolici
authorities estimate from their records thai
there were over 200 cases of fever. JJurinj
that time onc-iifth of the wholy populatioi
were sick. At this rate, taking the nimihc
of sick previously, another month will se<
the disease at an end, as all the inhabitant
will have passed through the infection am
Yellow Jack will have no further food foi
his fangs. In Brownsville things are, i
anything, wotse than here, as the diseas<
moves with greater speed, and is generally
more largely distributed all over the city
and many prominent citizens are dowi
with it.

Chicago, Ii.l., August 21.?J.B. Atwater,
, an inventor of some prominence, lias
, secured patents on a unique and entirely

The poles of an electro magnet are
t changed to a point distant from where
2 they are usually located, and by this
B transfer a stroke of 5 to 510 inches is secured
( and a reciprocating or nil oscillating en}
giuo without breaking the current which
t connects the battery with the motor. With
e the greatly increased power thus gained
j there is no increased battery necessary.
The power gained its continuous, noiseless
and the cost a minimum. The machine ,

the Democratic mode on Fishing creek
Dr. Kunst, the President of the railroad
informed me yesterday, that the com pain
had made every preparation necessary, aiu
that they could airy any number of pcopli
who might attend."
Col. Dan Johnson took in Weston afte;
his experience meeting at Clarksburg,
had a brief chat with him, and I canno
say that he either looked or talked like i
candidate with bright anticipations, lit
has but few acquaintances here, and the
fact that he is a pronounced prohibitionia
did not lind favor in the eyc3 of the "active"
workers. Dan is too light-colored foi
a dark horse, apd lacks the personal popu

nent. lake, brother Lively, he will hi
"prominently mentioned" once more, anc
then he will again return to the shade o
his willow tree in Tyler, there to remaii
until the next Congressional campaign.
The news from Clarksburg has not cans
ed any peculiar thrills of joy to stiffen tlu
Democratic spine. It is universally admitted
that K. M. Turner and John Basse'
will be defeated. Judicious action on the
part of the Itepnbiirans.of Ilarirson, wit!
Hen Wilson out of the way and the righi
kind of candidates,willgire us Harrison In
a majority that will throw the Democratic
majority in Braxton into the shade.
Again, it is understood that Mr. Turnei
will come here loaded clear to the muzz It
with a Free Trade speech, which must bt
tired oif at nil hazards, lie bos been ir
travail on this subject for a long time; am
August24 and the Weston Fair Grounds is
named as the time and place of accouch
menu An ugly rumor reaches 'qs thq:
Col. Ben will be hero to afsist in the opora
tion; and that he boldly asserts, on hi:
reputation as a political surgeon, that Tur
ner is troubled with a tumor, or bus worms
?simply that, ami nothing more. Tin
diirereneo of opinion among doctors wil
undoubtedly cause a "disturbance" of con
sjderable dignity.
The oppouentu of Col. Wilson, it js alsc
understood, will introduce a rcsolutioi
condemning the members of Congress whe
voted for the passage of the Kiver am
Ilarbor Bill. In opposing this, the Colo
pel's friends will be ably seconded by tin
strikers for Qamden, who are delegate;
from Lewis, Braxton and other counties
At all events, there seems to be enougl
combustible material to make "right smari
of a lire," and the Apostle of Free Tmdi
from Clarksburg is nominated as the in
pendiary.
Outside oi these two matters, though, ji
is generally believed that the conventior
will be a tolerably orderly one, and that it
will ratify the work already prepared for ii
by the bosses without any serious rupture
true "a fellow can't most always tell. "But

- The attendance was large and the delibera

was manifested, and n glance over the'lake
, of faces convinces us that intelligence and
) industry, as well as Republicanism, was
represented. The meeting was called to
i order by Chairman Reynolds, who nomia
nated Mr. John Miller, of Iveyser, chair
man of the Convention. This nomination
i was ratitied, and J. li. 0. Clemm, of Key

i Mr. Miller upon taking the chair made
? some appropriate remarks nud stated the

, Oh motion of V. II. Reynolds the Chair
r was authorized to appoint a committee cont

was to be the naming of delegate to the
r Fairmont Congressional Convention. CarI
ried.
L Here, pending the naming of this comi
mittee, Mr. J. T. Miller, offered the follow
; iug resolution:
IlcwUcd, That the delegates from this
t couuiy be instructed to use all honorable
means to secure the nomination of Hon. J.
r T. Hoke for Congre?s from this district.
This resolution provoked some discu>
sioa, the debaters taking the gromid that
i instructing delcgatei was bad in conveni
tiona, but if wejare to restrict delegates to
f vole for one man against their discretion
i and expediency, one delegate was all
that was necessary to appoint, whereupon
Mr. T. R.Carakadou oll'ered the following
i substitute, which was accepted :
Jiaolccd, That the Republicans of Miner'

ccountof its experiences;
"On July 13,1881, wo steamed through

<udlow, which was close to the pack, to
he northwest. On August 2d we weut up
nightingale Sound, and thence to Kira
larbor and erected a storehouse. On the
Oth we started east to look for the Jeanictte,
but were unable to pass Berent's
look. On August 21 the Kira got nipped
tetween the land lloe and pack ice a mile
ast of Capo Flora, and sank before we,
irere able to save many stores. We
milt a hut on Cape Flora of turf and
tones and covered it'with sails. We winured
there, and during the whole time no
igns of scurvy appeared. Twenty-nine
. alrus and thirty-six bears were killed and
atcn. We left Cape Flora June 21, 1882,
ii four boats, sailed 80 miles without seeDg
any ice, and reached Nova Zsmhla
Unjust 2d. AVhen the Kira was nipped the
fak gained so rapidly that in two hours
ucr jc imu neen discovered it was necesiiry
to abandon the ship. Hardly hud the
ist man left the vessel when the Ice loosed
nd the Kira rapidly sank. A tent was
irst erected on the ice and the house was
ubsequently built.

brilliantly defeated twice their number.
The fight lasted from 11 o'clock this morning
until nearly f> o'clock this afternoon.
The tiring of the Highlanders was remarkable
for coolness and steadiness. The.
Catlings in the tops of thegunbonts worked
with admirable precision and did much
execution among the enemy,whoadvanced
to within one hundred varclsof the bank
of the canal. The success wa3 all thu
more brilliant owing to the extremely difficult
nature of the country which
bounded with low ridges and water
courses. Lieutenant I/)ng, of the Highlanders.
yullantly crossed the freshwater
Canal in the face of a hot tire and brought
back a boat thus enabling a eompnny of

take the enemy on the tight Hunk. The
