Hmband and wife were arraigned in a

Mr. Hkdinubr, whose name appears as
editor of the Wat Virginia Democrat ("State

cUralion to show upon what ground he
asks a jury to give him $10,000 of the Ixtiiligenceii's
good money. Another
month muit go by now before we can
know just what atllicts Mr. Bedinger.
From this backwardness in coining forward
may be inferred a lack of disposition
to give the Intelligencer a chance to relieve
ilsell of tho imputation implied, at
least, in the sudden and very peculiar attitude
of the plaintift We have not the
least idea of dropgirgM/JBedinger in thia
unceremonious way.
Hemc ia a glimpse of the situation ns
afforded by the Washington correspondent
of a Democratic newspaper:
There is more talk here about the postoffices
than anything else. The politicians
areallppeca'ating about what Stevenson
will do. The general opinion is that be
will not be so particular about charges
filed against incumbent Republican postmasters
as Mr. Hay was, and that he will
not require bo much heavy swearing to
turn the guilty ones out. Mr. 8tevenson
is also a hale and hearty man, and from
appearance is able to do a great deal of
hard work. He has already taken hold of
his office like he intended to move things
and bouncc them, audi hope he will.

A London correspondent telegraphs: "I
h?r orders have been given at the Marl

Prince of Wales, that the Pali Hall Oazetle

peaks of this smiles for obvious reasons."
The Prince has seen a good deal of tho
lady tide of life himself, and he cannot
1* expected to look with favor on the
G'aafc'i exploit. In the same line la the
proposlion to prosecute the newspaper.
Nothing is said so far about prosecuting
the evil men whoso evil conduct was tho
provocation of the .exposure. A certain
kind of public opinion is more easily
uouied against the newspaper which
peaks in the name of morality and
humanity than against the vipers which
iafeel society with their poison.

"NVAanixaTox, D. 0., Jaly 10.?United
States Consul Frank H. Mason, of Mar
settles, has sent to the Departmental
d..i ?t ' tit- it 1 i t
maiu a review wiiu prauucfti uuauiuaiuut
concerning native and Asiatic cholera and
the beat methods ol prevention and treat'
ment, derived from studies ol the epi
demies of 1884 and .preceding years al
Marseilles. After sketching briefly the
experiences there daring nine cholera
epidemics since 1834, describing the
varying action o( the diseasj ruani
tested in the different cases, sncb
as diarrheal for two or throe
days followed by the disease proper; again
auilden attack sometimes while sleeping;
in nnn prrm vnrnitintM uni! ntiririnim. 111
another neither of these, Consul Mason
goes on to say, these variations were
never so great or so perplexing to physicians
as last year. lie adds, in its choice
of victims, cholera is most precise and
definite. With rare exceptions, they belong
to one of four of the following classes
of persons: Those who live under bad
hygiene conditions in respect to food and
lodging; those who are imprudent in rospectto
eating, drinking and exposure;
tnoso weakened and debilitated by alcoholic
excess, and those who sutler from
chronic digestive weakness or derangement.
DAXOKUOC8 IMPRUDENCES.
Among the imprudence^which become
dangerous in the presence of cholera are
over eating to the extent of producing
lethargy or indigestion, drinking any
liquid so called as to check .the process of
digestion, eating raw vegetables in the
formation of salads, and in general, use of
raw fruits unless perfectly freehand ripe;
drinking cold water or beer, after having
eaten raw fruit is a direct challenge to
cholera, which no person, however strong
and healthy can afford to risk. The sus,|r..nlfd?la
tn ..Imlarain. in.
flaences is proven by abundant evidence,
among which may be cited the sweeping
fatality of the disease whenever it attacked
inmates of inebriate asylums. Anything,
in lact, whether of temporary or
chronic nature, which impairs the vigor
of the digestive organs, exposes persons
thus weakened to choleraic attack. In relation
to transmission of cholera: Mason
says: "Contagion is transmitted by the
inhalation of air infected by clothlr:^,
rags, wool, Ac, which have been tainted
bv contact with the disease and by water."
He cites the case of a man who tied from
Marseilles and was not taken ill until he
had unfastened his trunk, taking the contaw-ion
from the clothing therein.
TRANSMISSION OP CHOLEBA.
A servant-girl went from Marseilles to
the village of Omerques, and after arriving
there washed some of her infected
clothes in a creek which supplies the
village with water. Not only was the
village'decimated by cholera as a result,
but also the territory below through which
the stream runs, while that above escaped.
Mason says the authorities of Marseilles
agree that^bo .disease does not transmit
itself directly from a cholera patient to a
person in good health, neither by contact
nor inhalation. The dejections and vomit
of a cholera patient usually, contain the
germ of contagion which although
not immediately transmissible, often
when placed under favorable conditions
quickly develops contagion. Clothing and
textile merchandise are far more dangerous
as vehicles of the contagious principle
than individuals. Choleraic poison attacks
only persons in greater, or less degree
prepared for it The five most elTectivo
destroyers of cholera germs in excretions
are: Solution of sulphate of copper
in the proportion of not less than two
ounces to one quart of water; liquid
chloride o* zinc. 1J ounce to one quarter of
water; bichloride of mercury, one-sixth
ounce to one quarter of water; bichloride
of copper, two ounces to one quart of water;
sulphuric acid, four ounces to a.quart
a! n*atb* Thn umo nhamimli a to nnr>??
for the disinfection of water-closets, sinks
and all other seats of decay or Infection.
SAFKOUARDS AGAINST TUB D18KAMK.
For washing stroets and drains, sulphate
of Iron, ten poundB in 220 gallons of water,
or liquid chloride line, twenty pounds in
220 gallons, has been found most effective
and practicable. Phenlc acid, in the proportion
of ten pounds to 220 gallons of
water, was largely used at Marseilles .last
year, but the results were less satisfactory
than expected, some experts even going
so far as to afSrm that the phenic principle
preserved rather than destroyed tho germs
of contagion. The report then touchcs
upon the problems of caring for cholera
OQ uuip'Duaru, tu uarravmr, ioviuwio, jjuhoni,
ic., its exemplified at JUrsoilles. At
Vonacbs there iu a practical exemption
from disease, attributed to the required
army regimen, including wearing
a broad belt or girdle of
ilannei to protect tbe atoiuacb and bowels
from audden chill, whito linen or cotton
havelocks to bo worn during all outdoor
exercises, absolute interdiction of all green
fruits, use of rice in all soups;a quart of
wine dally to each man; variation of food
as often as practicable; susDension of military
exorcises; walk for exercise from 0 to
7:30 A. u. each alternate day; music
morninit and evening in tho barracks
yard; frequent washing of rooma and
halls with solution of pbenic acid; sewanls
required to have constantly ready
tea, sugar and rum to be administered immediately
in all cases of cniic; also "liquor
ol Batavia" to be given twenty drops in a
quart of water upon appearance of
choleraic symptoms. Mason then proceeds
to give an outline of what to eat and
what to avoid. Marseilles prohibits tho
entry into the city of melons, encumbers
and summer fruits. Instructions were issued
to the pnblio to avoid all excess, to
drink as little as possible between meals,
eat beef and mutton, and protect the body
from sadden chilly and see that the food
taken was not buub. i'.uiy wpia usias
followed by vieoroua robbing were recommondod.
Uuoa says there is nothing
more perilous than (or persons who onco
left an infected atmosphere to return to it
before the pestilence was completely supprcfsed.
He continues, "No person shoiild rsturn
to an Infected city nnlenin condl
Hon ol good heajtb,i>artlcuiarly in rupees

possible persona bo returning should atop
lor at least thirty-eight hoars in a suburb

Alleged Frnudi la the Nary Yard*?Iavfl*llicullon
lu Progr?M.
Washington, July 10.?The Secretary
ol the Navy purposes effecting an entire
i reorganization of the nine Government
Navy yard*, not later than next fall. An
investigation looking to this end has been
in progress for some weeks. Committees
at the various yards have been examining
I books and papers covering a period of ten
years. These committees have been and
I are being atsisted by a special commission
! sent from the Navy Department The reI
ports are to be sent to Washington and
compared with the books hjre. Theob'
ject of the investigation is to leara
whether or not the books will
J agree with tbo accounts in the
books at Washington. It is intimated
that already a discovery has been made
1 that the books at the Department show
i that certain materials which ought to be
. on hand in one of the yards cannot be
found. At the Mare Island navy yard,
1 California, the investigation will be most
1 thorough because of the reports of the ali
leged needless expenditures of money at
the place. The (Secretary has been luridtthcd
with the names of a number of oer
i sons who say they can give evidence of
i fraud in that yard in the report of United
States vessels. .
i "Will the Secretary order an investigation
of the repairs of vessel* in all the
yards ?" was asked of a naval officer to-day
who is acquainted with Secretary Whitney's
intentions.
"It is useless to order an investigation,"
he replied. "The money has been spent
in some eases recklessly, and I expect
fraudulently, but it cannot be recoverod.
At one yard (Mare Island) large amounts
in the past years have been expondod in
repairs. This.yard is a great distance
fropi Washington and-the oflicers have
seemed to feel that they could act with
impunity. I have helttMt- said that
rotten wood has been' placed in
vessels that they mignt soon
be returned for repairs. A little more
than three years ago the Penaacola was
#*nn<lnmnari at thn Mara Island vard. Khn
was brought to tho Atlautic and sent on
a three years cruise and only recently received
tho repairs tbat officials in California
said were necessary when she was
there. Charges are higher at Mare
Island than in tho private yards on the
Pacific coast."
"In thenroposed reorganization the Secretary
will manage to diapenso with the
service of so many bosses. The yards are
full of master this and master that,'and
they all get $o a day whether they work or
not, of lour hoars for a day's work in
some instances. A sail maker went from
Boston to one of the yards and began
working eight hoars a day. He was told
to labor less hoars; that he could not be
allowed to accomplish so much work."
Tbe Era uf Reform."
WAemsaTo.v, D. C., July 10.?The
heads ol the Executive Departments have
been considering the advisability of reducing
the annual leaves ot absence granted
to the department employes, and it is un
ueraujixi mm lue qut-nuuu woa mo iupiu
of discussion in yesterday's Cabiuet mooting.
The general impression is that these
leaves will b* reduced from thirty to
twenty days. In consequence there is a
good deal of suppressed growling among
the employe*, especially in the Pcstoffice
Department, where the'clerks have been
working overtime for raonlfflTpast in the
attempt to reduce the accumulation of
business.

Lieutenant General Phil ff. Sheridan:
Sir:?In view of the possible disturb

me also to.request Uiat you invite statements
on their part as to the real or fancied
injury or injustice towards them, 01
any other causes that may' have led to
discontent, and to inform yourself generally
as to their condition. You are justified
in assuring thorn that any cause ol

authorities here, and if wrongs exist they

I tbink I need hardly add that they

.INDIAN TROUBLES.
The Ghejannci Wilt h? Wiped Oat of Existence
If Tbcj Dun'i Qalet Down.
WAsmiiaTo.v, D. C., , July 10.?The
Indian troubles, as looked upon from
Washington, are becoming more serious.
General Sheridan left here to-night for
Fort Beno. The General.desired to be at
the scene of conflict. A telegram hss
been sent to* the officer in command,'
which says the outbreak must be suppressed
even if the Cheyennea arc wiped
oat of existence.
General Miles Is expected in the Indian
Territory not later than tho first of next
week. Hope is expressed that he rasy be
able to quiet the disturbance without
bloodshed. He is well known to the
Indians, and is said to haye considerable
influence over them. Ia s trouble with
the Cheyennes some years ago they surrendered
to him voluntarily; prior to that
it was their caBtom to refuse to surrender.
The Indian Commissioner had not received
aoy telegrams from the scene of
the dlstnrbance op to the close of office
hours to-day. In answer to an inquiry as
to whether it was the purpose of the
Government to disarm the uheyennes he
firmly declined to give any information.
Ho declared that great harm might be
done by the premature publication of the
intentions of the Government in such
cme8. Nevertheless it can be stated that
the Interior Department is strongly in
favor of disarming tho Cheyennea,- and
that Inspector Armstrong haa recommended
the adoption of this precaution.
THE APACUHS WHIPPED.

Tombstone, Am., July 10.?From Samuel
Branau, Jr., who arrived yesterday

facta: On the afternoon of July
2d the scouts under command of Captain
Chatlee came upon a band of Apaches
near Guasabus, on the Oporto river In
Sonora, and a spirited fight ensued, in
which forty Indians were killed and three
bucks and eleven squaws captured, the
loss to Chaffee being one soldier and one
or two scouts wounded. The priaoners
have been sent to San Carlos in charge of
sixteen Indian scouta, and should arrive
to-day, if nothing happens. .
The same day 100 Indians crossed the
Coonaps Valley and entered the Sonora
Mountains. They killed fifteen head of
cattlo while crossing the valley, and took
tno carcasses with them into the mountains,
where it is ovident they intend to
stay. Captain Ohalfee, with his soldiers
and scouts and 350 Mexican volunteers, is
in pursuit and will try venr hard to exterminate
the entire band. Mr* firauan got

As the afternoon wore on, after General
Buckner's departure, the pleasure felt by
General Grant at having met his old

any tendency to depression which might
have resulted. He retired at 8 o'clock

at midnight the house was quiet and dark.
