still interested, ar.xioua and venomous.
h? He has lately issued a book?the title of I
, which is a direct stab at the Republican
party?and is being distributed after all
the country papers have gone to press.
Monroe being an eminent impracticable,
he takes desperate chances to play into
the hands of the Democratic party. This
is only one of a hundred illogical movt-s ,
ry of the Third Party. If prohibition^ever "
comes in Ohio it will come over the dead h

of the voters will never be permitted to die- r.

u WILLIXHSPOET, Pa., Oct. 9. ? Some to
1 weeks ago Clarence Clark, formerly a of
wealthy druggist, committed suicide, and 8"
y yesterday afternoon his wife took opium ^

^ one of the most respectable families in
this state, and formerly lived in Wilktsbarre,
wtiere she was a general favorite
[ in society. Soon after their marriage
Clark drank heavily and lost all bU

their losses that she became a continued va
opium eater. The friends of the couple ou
n deserted them, antf at last they took what wi
? remained of their fortune and came to wj

to the fact that on his return after the

le writer then informed tho President
tat all he knew about it was contained
i a telegram aent to the New Orleans

uce assumed general importance he, the_
riter, had thought proper on his own"
otion to lay the facts fully before the

|Hoq. John Goode, Solicitor General, j
My Dear Sir:?I submit to you with
is statement made by Attorney General

ther want of relation) to the action
ken by yon in his absence upjn an apication
to bring in the name of

e validity of the patent held

iur attention especially to the latter part

The reference to tho Interior Detriment
which he mention* m an orditry
feature iu tbat proceedure seems to
ive be* n dispensed with in your treatent
rf this application. The omission
ay have becu the result of lack of familnty
with the routine in such cases
of perfectly clear and satisfactory j?erasion
of what should be done, derivrd

the cause m ly be, and while referice
is not vital, of coarse, to tho validity
your action, and though I am by no
ean3 prepared to question tbe
rrectnegs of tho exerciee of your
scretion in the matter, still the
ecedent of calling for reference to
e department with which the matter is
nnected is so well established and seems
me so well founded on considerations
safety, as well as propriety, tbat 1 de e
to suggest for your reflection the propition
whether such action on your part
will preserve and prot*?ct such precent
and custom, could well be taken.
Yours very trnly,

A UAD PRECEDENT.
Solicitor General Goode under the date
to-day replies, acknowledging the prelence
of the custom of reference and his
oission of it and adds: "This amission
is not the result of a lack of familiarity
ith the routine in such cases, but if a
tisfactory persuasion derived entirely
sm the papers presented to me as to
bat was right and properly done in the
emises.
In addition to affiavita which accompaed

copy of all the writings filed in the

these exhibits, which appeared to be

uch as the question presented by papers
r my consideration was a legal one exlsively
I did not deein it advisable to
fer the application to the Interior Dertment

of which tfce following are extracts:

U. S. Grant, Jr., was seen last night i
bis farm near Purdy's station on.the Hai

to Ferd Ward's statement. He said:
"I have nothing further to say abou
this man. I am not surprised that b
should attempt to besmirch the name c
the family he so treacherously ruined,
will reserve what I have to say until th
trial next month. Should Ward escape

take more active st-ps."

about the year 1820, "The History of 8ig
Brookl/n," by Stiles, says: thi
"The road before mentioned as passing Cb
eastward, past Poling's tavern, led to a soi
house on Fort Green, occupied by a milk- an
man named George McCloskey, who was La
the father of the present Iioman Catholic
Archbishop of New York. The future
Archbishop, we have been told, was born *
in midwinter, when the ground was covered
with deep anow and the bay filled with wi1
ice. His mother, being taken seriously He

whose son, Henry E., waa an infant M
of nearly the same age, sympathizing with nn

the danger of tho child, went herself and coi
i nursed the infant until the mother waa an
, able to do se. The boy throve, commenced ec(
the studv of law uoder Joseph W. Smith, sii
: of New York, but finally quit and enterud soj
- the ministry, to the delight of his worthy thi
5 father, who could, however, hardly have ni?
anticipated the eminence to which his son gr<
' was ultimately to attain." pa

s above was the eminent Attorney General, oci
1 Young McCioskey, as the age of 11, en- ft.
tereu Mount St. Mary's College at at Em- la?
mettaburp* Md. He supplemented his on
1 classical education by a course of theology eel
- at the seminary at that place. The presi- TL
dent of the college then was John B. Du- sit
bois, its founder, who afterwards waa thi
3 Bishop of New York. ws
1 HIS ORDINATION*. m]
E He was ordained a priest in 1834 at the ^
ago of 24. Two years later he went to thi
Rome and spent two years in the Convent hii
of St. Andreas della Vallee. While there w.fl
he became the intimate friend of Cardinal jj"
Wiseman, then rector of the English Col'
lege iu Home, and of Cardinal Culten,
then rector of the Irish college. Upon re- jje,
1 turning to New York he was assigned as jQE
1 assistant pastor to St. Patrick's
- Cathedral. In 1838 he was appoint- ani
ed pastor of St. Joseph's Church. aul
He waa not well received at
tiret by the parishioners, but they soon
' became reconciled to the change by his
[ gentle ways, and ultimately they fairly 1
1 idolized him. In 1841 he wai appointed are
; by Bishop Hughes to the prcs'dency of SI. ^
: John's College, Fordham, much against *
the wishes of his pariahonere. He ro- 1?T
turned at the end of a year to Sc. Joseph's, Yc
after skilfully completing the organization Du

In 1&47 the diocese of New York was for
[ divided. Oa the 21st of May of the sarao oi
? year Coadjutor Bishop McCloskey was
i translated to the See of Albany and made
J its drat bishop. Archbishop Hughes de- te<
livered the installation ceremony in St. P*
Mary's church. Albany at that time contained
only three Catholic churches. Daring
? the years that Bishop<McCl wkey spent in
i Albany he accomplished much for the caufe ?
j of religion. Churches were built and institutions
organized. These establishments pre- aa
9 sided over by the Sisters of Mercy and ^
r Sisters of St. Joseph were originated by ja
i him. During his term the Provincial AQ
Seminary at Troy was bought by Arch- ev
t bishop Hughes. The Bishop went to Eu- gtj
rope at this time for the purpose of en- ^
gaging professors for the new seminary. ^
Jesuit Fathers, Auzustiniacs, Franciscans ?ie
a and oblates were aw ) brought to Albany or
. and other parts of bis dioctae by this ^
_ sealous prelate. Churches and educational
institutions have been established
J under the auspices of these orders. But

March 15,1875, was a memorable day,
3t only in Archbishop McCloskey's
ireer, but also in the history of Amerim
Catholicism. Oa that day he was splinted
a Cardinal by tho Pope. Mgr.
oucctti, the Pupa's legate, and Count
arefescbi.a captain of the Papal Guard,
ere dispatched to this country with th*
reUa and the Papal briefs to announce ofuaJly
the facto: the creation of anew eccloastical
dignity in America. The news ,
as received by the pub'.ic with gratitica*
Dn, the press commented favorably upon 1
le great eveut and echoed the public
>inion. The new Cardinal was provided
f the wealthy Catholic? with a revenue
litable to his princely rank, and the late
ol his diocese presented to him a
perb carriage and a handsome span of
>recfl. Archbishop McCloskey received
e news of his elevation to his high digty
with the modesty and humanity that
ive always formed a striking part of the
elato's character and demeanor.
UK RECEIVES TUB B lit ETTA.
On the 27th of April, 1875, at St. Path's
Cathedral, oa Mulberry street, the
remonyof investuro took place. The
ine of this ceremony was marked by a
ligious pomp and pageant never before
tnebsed in this country. The Cathedral
is besieged by ticket, bolder?, frantic in i
their efforts to gaia a coign of advan- t
re. The altar and chancel wan ablxz* g
th lights that shone upon the dazz.ing .
ray of mitred archbishops and 11
ihops with their cap?s of gold t

ure amid the shaven clergy aud the

iminican and Franciscan monks, was
a martial tig ure of Count Maref jaetii,
oted and spurred, uniformed in scarlet,
lite and gold, and of all that vast assemige
the only cne why kt pi his l e ul
rored, never removing his brass helmet
th its flowing plume. The papa! briefs

lurch. The organ burst forth in gladne
peal and the choirintonedthe grand
d triumphant strains of the ''le Deuin

A USEFUL LIFE.
\. shjrt tiina afterward Cardinal Mcjskey
went to Rome and was received
Lb great benignity by the Pope. His
rtincss said to a newspaper ^orrespondL
that the new Cardinal impressed him
a real prince, so dignified and raeas- ]

his manner. He received at Rime the
slirmation of his new dignity,

tlesiastieal honors from tne Con- a

and general business. The outlook continues
to improve. Nails, wrought pipe,

strong, and are full. Crude uon is
rather weak in view of the prospective increasing
supply from furnaces preparing to
blow in. Bar iron is $150 to$l 70; nails,

steel rails, $30 to $31. Building material
and staple hardware are in abundant supply
in all market*, and common iron is
heavy.
The developments in the lumber markets
from Portland to Chicago, during the
week show au increased demand for the
better grades of white and yellow pine,
with a slight upward tendency iu prices,
but the abundant offerings will likely deprebH
prices. Yards are well supplied
