ADDRESS OF THE EXECUTIVE STATE COM
MITTEE OF THE DEMOCRACY OF OHIO.
Columbus, 0., Oct. 18.—The Democratic Ex
ecutive Committee will to-morrow morning
issue the following address:
To !Ae Democracy of Ohio t
>ple,
The result of last Tuesday’s elects-, shows
that Ohio was lost by a failure to poll the usual
Democratic vote. Uprtifying is Id tile fact,
justice to the Liberal Republicans arid ari earliest
desire to retrieve the misfortune, require us to
declare that in our chief towns the Liberal
strength exceeded our most sanguine estimate.
In the country it fell short; but the . aggregate
of Liberals in city andcountywhovotedourStato
ticket, added to the Democratic vote of. 1868,
would have overcome the Republican majority
at that election and the negro vote combined,
and given iia victory. Can wo repair this mis*
chiez ? _ We can. Pom* fifths of the Deiriocracy
who staid at home last Tuesday can be induced
to vote for Greeley in November. Those who
will absolutely go to the polls will be counter
balanced in number by those Republicans who
went against na last Tuesday, but will vote for
Greeley. We have only to poll our usual Demo
cratic vote to win a glorious victory.
The Liberals stretch forth their hand-
Shall we refuse to take it ? The prostrate and
E hindered South cries out for help! Shall we
o deaf to their appeal ? By Greeley’s election
we can restore prosperity and good government
to the South, kind feeling to the new hostile
sections, honesty and honor to the Civil Service,
respect for Constitutions and laws. Could we do
more with a Democrat in the Presidency? Could
he expect that co-operation in Congress which
Mr. Greeley would command? Are patriotic
Democrats willing to lose all the beneficent re
sults of victory out of personal hostility to Gree
ley or disgraceful lethargy ? Are Ohio
Democrats ready to let our yet pure and proud
State become debauched and hopelessly subju
gated, like Pennsylvania, by the hordes of
mercenaries paid by public plunder ? Fellow-
Democrats, our union with the Liberals in Ohio
has not been fruitless. It has given us Hamil
ton County by nearly 6,000 majority, which se
cures the Constitutional Convention, and Legis
lature, end a United States Senator next year.
If we make a brave fight this fall, should both
Ohio and Pennsylvania go for Grant, the chances
are still in favor of Greeley’s election.
Connecticut, New York, New Jersey,
and Indiana, added to those border and Southern
States which are certain for Greeley, will give
him a clear majority. We have already, by a
vigorous and aggressive fight, forced the Grant
party to its knees, and can conquer it in Novem
ber.

Fellow-Democrats, work till November heartily
and hopefully. The Liberals will take care of
themselves. Let every Democratic County Com
mittee get a list of those Democrats in each
township who failed to vote last Tuesday, and
direct its efforts to the bringing about of this
laggard vote, and the fight is won in Ohio and
the Republic.
JR,
SPEECH OF MR. GREELEY AT PLEASANTVILLE,
N. Y.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
New York, Oct. 13. —Mr. Greeley made the
following speech yesterday at a mass meeting of
Liberals and Democrats at Fleasantyille, near
Chanpaqua:
Mb. Chairman, Fellow Citizens and
Neighbors : Yon are aware, doubtless, that I
have shunned or seemed to shun any meeting
which has been held in this county for political
discussion during the present year, and yet
when I heard that this meeting was to be held
in our immediate neighborhood, and addressed
by the Representatives in Congrfess
and our well-beloved candidate for Lieutenant
Governor, it seemed to me that I should show
an undue reticence or shrinking if I hesitated
to obey the call to appear before you. So lam
here. Then let me say a very few words; not in
terrupting the course of your speakers, on the
initial grounds of controversy in this election. I
believe that great abuses have silently, gradual
ly grown Up in the administration of our
Government under the influence of an extraor
dinary and desperate civil war. 1 believe that a
change is desirable, in order that these abuses
may be assailed ana corrected; but I will not
speak of these things, because I might seem to
be commending myself. Let me say a few words
in addition to those you have heard from the
previous speaker, as to the causes of the separa
tion of parties. We all know that slavery
existed m this country. During all its long
existence, down to seven or eight years ago, we
all know that good men, patriotic men, differed,
: I think, but not so much with regard to the
nature of slavery, its mistakes, its wrongs, as
with regard to our duty. Some Honest men,
patriotic men, said: “ Well, we Have aHolishea
slavery in New York. Wo cannot abolish
it in Virginia; therefore, wo Have
nothing more to do.” Other men,
myself among them, said: “Wo have abolisHed
it in New York, we ought to do all that we cau to
abolish it in every part of the country. We were
at variance with regard to slavery in the Terri
tories, and so on. well, slavery is dead, and if
all men in this country wore to undertake to
revive it they could not revive it in a good many
years. There is no more possibility that it
should be revived than there is that the thous
ands of men who died for our country should
come to life and participate in our present
struggle. It is not only dead, but you, or I,
or any one who should now be called to office
must take a solemn oath to obey the Constitu
tion. which forbids its ever being re-establisHed.
Well, then, I say, slavery being dead, no
body expects it ever to come to life
again, ana there is ho reason why you and I
should quarrel about slavery. No matter how
we regarded it in the past, it is not a practical,
living issue now. well, then, what was the
next difficulty as to the way in which we should
deal with the efforts made by certain Southern
States to dissolve this Union ? Up to the time
when war was waged upon us,
up to the ■ time when the
guns of slaughter thundered against Fort
Sumter, this people differed as to how we should
deal with tHe question of disunion, but that con
test ceased to be a living issue. At the time
when that war was waged upon us in behalf of
secession, had they waited till we struck the
first blow I think they migHt Have waited some
time, but they having struck the first blow
the North rose up and said: “All
these questions are dead. We have now to save
the country. “ The war was waged through four
bloody years. The Union is established now,
and there is no one tHousand men or forty
thousand men who have the slightest dream tHat
it can ever be disturbed. Whatever may have
been your or my opinion, twelve or fif
teen years ago, it is certain tHat the Union can
not be dissolved now, and could not he
dissolved then. If any one undertakes to raise
a question about disunion, telling you that
General Dix said this or Mr. Trcmain said that,
or Mr. Greeley said the otHcr thing twelve years
ago, the answer is, that has nothing pertinent to
do with Now. The country is re-united, and will
remain so forever. We differed with regard to
the proper course to he pursued with reference
to the African race when free. There were men
as good as ever lived, who said: “The blacks
are an inferior race. They are ignorant, de
based, and it would be wrong to admit them to
an equal right of suffrage.” Others said, and I
said: “Grant all you say about their debase
ment and Ignorance; if you make them a spe
cial class, they will always remain so. You will
educate them. You must giye them
ville, N. Yi
the right of suffrage, and then yon will
have to educate them so that they can exercise
it intelligently." Well, we fought that out, and
to-day it is just as firmly established ae the ever
lasting hills that the rights of the black man
are the same as the white, and if all the people
of all the States tried to change it they could not
change it. It is in the Constitution, and so
in it that no sensible man will tell you
that it can ever be taken out. There is no ques
tion about the negroes, about black men or
white men. The Constitution does not know
any race, but recognizes the rights of man. and
every person and every race are exactly equal,
and that cannot be changed. Kow, then, these
questions being dead, closed as utterly out of
place as is the question -whether this
country shall be dependent on
Great Britain or independent—for that
was once a living issue—these questions being
dead, I now insist that they shall now be burled.
I say that we shall no moire undertake to raise
them up, blit shall go forward to living ques
tions, and the first is that all the white people of
this country shall be enfranchised just as ml the
black people are.” [Applause.] I thought of
that long before you were ready. 1 said “im
partial suffrage.” I said “Lotus make this
country one again,” dnd I believe that the
judgment of the country now is that that was a
wise conclusion, not merely magnanimous:
Magnanimity may be folly, but this was practi
cal, statesmanlike wisdom, not to kill the people
after the war was over, because we had'killod
them while the war was going on. But now
there are whites to be enfranchised. There
are 20,000 people in the State of
Arkansas disfranchised to-day. They arc men
of property, and their property is wasted by
bad men, who have no property, just as our prop
erty in New York City was squandered by ring
robbers for years, till the people rose in their
might and drove them out. X ask that the
American people give their sympathy and their
goucroda support to the people of the South,who
for seven years have tried to do their duty
as citizens restored to the country. We hear of
outrages where there are ten or a dozen men
concerned in them, hut in the groat States there
have been heard of no outrages. You have nev
er hoard of them in Virginia. There are no Ku-
Klux there. There are none in Florida. There
are none in Mississippi, none in Louisiana or in
Texas. Then, I say, let ns try to
call those men, this people, to us,
to say to them, “We are brothers. You and we
have warred; we have been opposed to each
other and fought, you for slavery and disunion,
and we for emancipation and union; but wo
fought not for our part of the country alone, but
for the whole country. Our purpose was to
make all men in all parts of the country free,
and our cause was that of Union and
Universal Freedom. Now, then, come
up and enjoy these privileges. Take your stand
with us and enjoy every good the earns as wo
have it.” Now it seems to me that this is not
merely magnanimity, hut statesmanlike policy,
what the country now neede, and when we have
got that, we will coneider many questions of the
dayj about which we may differ—tariffs, banks,
railroads, and so on. As we differed in the past,
we may differ again. But the first of
alTqnesnons is the emancipation of ail iho white
men of the country, eo that they shall enjoy
eqnal rights with the black men of the country.
That is the question on which I stand as a can
didate, which I believe. Whether it shall ho
successful in my person or not I do not know,
but I thank heaven that my name will
be identified with this great move
ment to liberalize the policy of this
country. This movement must prevail. Wo
cannot hate forever. We shall settle these
questions that part us, if not this year, then the
next year or the year after, and stand together
as Americans, citizens of one country, heirs of
one heritage, ready to standehouldertoehonider
in defence of that country if attacked by any
enemy whatever; [Great applause.]
THE VOTE OF INDIANA.
Special Despatch to Tiia Chicago Tribune,
Indiasapoms, Ind., Oct. IS.—Returns are in
from only 45 of the 97 counties of the State.
With three or four exceptions the official returns
show an increase in the vote for Hendricks. The
figures now in, with those previously re
ported from the 47 counties,
give him a majority of 1,158
It is probable that this will he increased to over
200. It is said that the Radicals intend to con
test the election, should the majority for Hen
dricks f all below 500, upon what ground it is not
known. The Radicals have probably elected aR
the balance of the State ticket.
Morton leaves here to-morrow, en route to

little interest in the remainder of the battle at
at home.
PROPOSITION TO REVIVE THE REPUBLICAN
PARTY IN GEORGIA-BOUTWELL AFTER THE
MASSACHUSETTS 9ENATORSHIP.
Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.
Washington, Oct. 13.—M. A. Hale, Butler's
Special Treasury Agent in Georgia, and Chair
man of the Republican State Committee there,
was in town yesterday, and bad an interview
with the President. He thinks the prospect
of the Republicans in Georgia are so
bad as to require a reinforcement
of the Federal troops in order to get out a full
party vote in November.
It may now be positively stated that Secretary
Boutwell Has consented to be a candidate for
the United States Senate, to fill Wilson’s vacan
cy, in case the latter is elected Vico President.
POLITICAL FRACAS IN COVINGTON, KY.
Cincinnati, Oct. 13.—Covington had a riot
last night. A Grant procession, half whites and
half colored, were marching along the street.
The story is that a boy hallooed for Greeley. A
negro said shoot him, and commenced bring.
One story is that the negroes fired in the air.
Another story is that they fired into & crowd of
bystanders. While it is represented that many
shots were filed, no one was struck or grazed
except one man, who had a hole shot through
his hat. Five or six persons were struck with
torches or boulders. Bullets wero fired into one
store; and tHe doors and windows of two other
stores were Hroken in.
NOTES FROM OUR CORRESPONDENCE.
Mt. Carroll, lll.—The Court House at Mfc.
Carroll was crowded on the evening of Oct. 8, to
listen to a Liberal address by Mr. A. R. McCoy,
of Fulton, HI. “The Democrats are solid for
Greeley in this county, and there as a Liberal
defection from the Republicans of 10 per cent.
The fact that Cameron has carried Pennsylva
nia by fraud does not cause us to desert the
cause, but is an Incentive to greater effort.”
Logansport, Ind. —“ Of the 417 majority for
Hendricks in Cass County, Logansport gave
360; and of the 486 majority for Whitesides (for
Congress), Logansport gave 426; I have not
heard the vote for Fdgerton, but I judge it to
be, from Whitesides* majority over Hendricks,
about 70. This city is one of the ‘strongholds*
of the Bourbons.”
Kane County, lll.—The Liberal Republican
and Democratic Conventions of Kane County
will meet at St. Charles, Thursday, Oct. 17, for
the purpose of selecting candidates for county
officers, and of choosing delegates -to the Sena
torial and Representative Convention.
Decatur, lll.—General Black spoke at Au
rora on the afternoon of the 11th, and at Deca
tur on the evening of the same day. His audien
ces wore large on HotH occasions. “ The peo
ple of Macon County are alive to the demand of
the hour. The seeming reverses in sister States
have but nerved them up to better work, with a
certain hope of triumph in their cause. We will
five our Local, State, and National tickets a
andsome majority in November.”
Sycamore, 111.—Senator Trumbull and Gen
eral Farnsworth spoke at Sycamore Oct. 11 ; the
former in the forenoon and the latter m the
evening. An immense crowd was in attendance.
“Judge Trumbull’s speech produced a profound
sensation, and is the common topic of conversa
tion on the street to-day. It nas done great
good here. The speech of Mr. Farnsworth was
equally well received. All in all, it has been a
. proud‘day for us.”
Portage City, Wis., Oct. 11.—A Liberal Re
publican and Democratic Mass Convention was
held at Portage City on the Bth instant, which
placed in nomination a county ticket selected
from the substantial men of both organizations.
On the 9th, the Hon. George B. Smith, Liberal
candidate for Congress, spoke at Portage City,
to one of the largest and most, respectable au
diences that ever assembled in that place;.and
a large torch-light procession marched through
the principal streets. “Judge B. F. Parks, the
Straight-out,” of Illinois, spoke at Portage City
recently, and the Register, the Grant organ tHere
praises His effort very highly, but adds, “It ie 3
true that we should not wish to commend hie
orafcorv as a model for ouf Breakers dr as

worthy of general emulation, and. we also,think
that something of his style, and of his matter as
well,, might be omitted without detriment to the
cause. He is a ‘Rough Diamond.* Bat then it
must he remembered ,tbat he .is an old-line Dem
ocrat, and hie speeches are calculated particular
ly for the ears of his old political comrades. If
his language is a little rough at times, and his
style somewhat loaferish, he explains the fact
himself by. saying that ‘his new political de
parture is so recent that he hasn’t got used to
good society.* So let Judge Parks ruin.”
Indianapolis, Ind.— "One weird at to the out
look. I have been three weeks in the canvass in
this State, and am euro that it is ours. Their
despatch to Grant about 10,000 in November is
all bosh. In this canvass, the Bourbons, with
acarely an exception, have worked for the Grant
State ticket. In one County (Johnson) the
Grantites put three Bourbons on their ticket,—
two of them for the Legislature. Our opponents
have polled their full vote, including ail they
could buy or import. This supply (probably
8,000 or 10,000) is now cut off. The National
Committee has helped them to the utmost of
their ability, while, in this State, they have been
sanguine, andinvested their funds freely on Tom
Brown. The result is, that, in this city, not less
than $200,000 will change hands, and probably
$500,C00 in the State. You tan readily see that
sinews of war will be scarcer with them next
month, while our friends will have some to loan,
at reasonable rates.” ...
Fulton, III.—“ The citizens of Fulton, Clin
ton, Lyons, Morrison, Albany, and 'Thompson
were addressed, at Fulton, Oct. 11, by the Hon.'
William Barge, of Dixon, who delivered a power
ful and telling speech in behalf of the Liberal
cause. Previous to the commencement of the
speech, all of our principal streets were thronged
with long ranks of torch-bearera, who, on foot
and on horseback, bad come for many miles,
from every direction, to witness what they ex
pected would be, and what, without any exag
geration, was, by far the grandest demonstra
tion of the campaign in Whiteside County.”
New York, Oct. 13.—The Executive Commit
tee of the Independent Democracy have recom
mended the formation of Grant' aid Wilson
clubs throughout the country.
Oliver Cbarlick has been nominated for Con
gress by the Citizens Bofonn Association.
Lerdo de Tejeda Elected President
The Spanish Insurrection at Ferral a
Trifling Affair. •
Madrid, Oct. 13.—An official despatch from
Ferral reports that the insurgents still hold out,
although badly disorganized and poorly provided
with ammunition. The Red Republican flag is
flying from the masts of vessels and over the
palaces seized by them. Troops will arrive be
fore the city to-morrow, and will combine with
the garrison in an attack on the rebels without
delay. The Qaceia says the insurgents seized
the steamer Cadiz, a tug-boat, and several barks.
The citizens eeem to look upon
the movement with indifference, taking no part
for or against it. Tho Military Governor, the
Commandant of the Post, and all the officers
arc faithful to tho Government, and, with the
troops of the garrison, occupy strategic points.
The Captain General of Corunna, with all bis
disposable forces, has marched for Ferral.
Troops have been despatched thither from Gi
Son, St. Andre, and Bilbao, and an iron-clad
as sailed from Carthagcna for the same point.
Tho only place of importance held by tho insur
gents is the arsenal,from which they will soon bo
unable to move. Port Phillippe, which is occu
pied by tho Government forces, commands tho
entrance of the harbor, and prevents the rebel
vessels from moving. The insurgents are al
ready demoralized, and several .have deserted
and surrendered themselves to thd loyal authori
ties.
Madbid, Oct. 13.—1n the Cortes, 0.1 Saturday,
a debate * arose on the elections in Porto Bico
aud the extension of the electoral privi
leges to Cuba. Prime Minister Zo
rina told the House that no re
forms could be introduced in Cuba while
a single man remained in anus' against the
Government. As for Porto Bico.i the Govern
ment would keep their promises, but would do
nothing which might jeopardize the preservation
of the colonies.
Matamoras, Oct. 13.—The vote of the people
for Presidential Electors was cast to-day, ' The
Electors meet the first Sunday in November to*
elect President. There being no opposition to
the present incumbent, Tejeda; the election
passed without unusnal excitement. But
little interest appeared lo be taken*
in the election. Telegraphic news from other,
frontierstates report all quiet. No opposition
or excitement whatever in any quarter.

The Famous Running Horse, Harry
Bassett, Badly Beaton by Monar-
cltist*
New York, Oct. 13.—The following is an
account of the great four mile race yesterday,
at Jerome Park, in which 31. H. Sandford’s Mon
archist, by Lexington, distanced Harry Bassett:
Monarchist went off first, with King Henry sec
ond, and Bassett trailing. The pace' is very
slow. At the quarter Bassett passes King
Henry, and is running a length or two behind
Monarchist. In this way they run the . first
mile, passing the stand. Colonel McDaniels
signalled Roe to go on. At the turn Bassett is even
with Monarchist, and gradually takes the lead,
holding it by a half length. As they round the
bluff coming into view they are neck and neck.
At the three-quarters, Monarchist loads a trifle.
At the furlong-pole and the stand Monarchist
again takes the lead. Again Colonel McDaniels
orders 800 to go on, and again Jimmy responds,
but before reaching the quarter it is evident
that Basset can not or will not respond to Boa's
call. Prom that point to the finish of the four
miles, Monarchist slowly but surely increased
his lead, and finally wins by 200 yards in 7:33#.
Harry Basset, second, 50 yards in front of King
Henry. Time of first mile, 1:52#; second,
1:47#; third, 1:56#; fourth, 1:57.
Goldsmith Ifloid and Occident*
San Francisco, Oct. 13.—The match between
Goldsmith Maid and Occident, set for the 16th
iust. ? is attracting a great deal of attention, and
the one universal topic of conversation in all cir
cles of society. In pools the . Maid sells first
choice SIOO to S6O, and S7O and $75. Time bets
are made that the Maid will trot a mile in 2:16
and 2:17. Both horses: are in excellent condi
tion, and the track was never better.

venerable Bishop of Wheeling, whose
advanced years, and whose labors in the
Episcopacy, as well as personal qualities, have
won our esteem and affection. The pallium
that I am about to place upon your shoulders,

your power. the metropolitan guide of the
American Church and places you in
tho position of one who is entitled to the es
teemed post of honor and precedence before all

precious significance. I deliver to you the
pallium taken from the body of Saint Peter,
and placed upon the tomb of the Prince of
Apostles, r I deliver it to - you,
in the name and for the honor of the holy
Boman Church as an emblem of perfect unity,
of perfect faith, humility, charity, and submis

you in the words of prayer used at the consecra

FtoTnia/j—The Burglars Unknown.
Sonfe tfmd between 1 and 6 o’clock on Satur
day momirig, th’e Hebrew hotel, No. i 27 Third
avenue, known as the Hess House, was the scene
of the .heaviest robbery that • has been
committed in this .city for
years, not excepting ' ; fanioua
burglary of Morse’s jewelry sir Madi
son atreet, some time since. > a
middle-aged gentleman named
partner of, and travelling agent for, H
sale Jewelry firm of Eichberg & Co M Ne>> O
arrived at the Hess House. Ho had three la/~ fi
trunks with him, one of which was taken
to his room. The other two were left in the
office of ihh hotel; Atl o’clock in the morning
the boy who' was oil difty ia the office retired
to bed/ after seeing thfit the doors
were securely locked,- afhd that
everything in and about the’ lower
part of the house was in a safe
condition. The office was not entered again by
any .person .connected with the house until about
7’ o’cldSli Saturday morning, when Mr. Hess,
the proprietor/ came down. He immediately
noticed that the two trunks belong-;
ing to Mr. BtrausS were missing, and
nlade inquiries about them. - The
boy who Hfc? been on duty the night before’ was
closely questioned,- but ho knew nothing of them,
any more than that they were there when he
went to bed. As they could fidt be found about
the house, the conclusion was amtddflt that they
liad been stolen. There was no rood left for
doubt when the front door was examined, as the
lock was missing. Mr. Strauss was notified, and
thorn for the first time, the proprietor of the
hotel wSS informed that the trunks contained
aboUts2o,oooworth of sample watches. The police
of the South Division fire now busily engaged on
this daring robbery, with every hope of success*
There is scarcely any clue to work Upon, except
that about 8 o’clock yesterday morning a lady,
who sleeps in a room over the office, heard loud
noises below. She paid no attention, however/
imagining that they were caused by the ear-*
vants. - •
FATAL ACCIDENT.
An Unknown man was run over and killed by
a Northwestern train, near Erie street bridge,
last evening, about 8 o’clock. His head, from
the nose down, was crushed in a shocking man
ner. When found, the body lay outside tha
track, and the head inside. The. mangled re
mains were conveyed to the dead-hoise.
LATEB.
Since the above was pat In type, we learn ad
ditional particulars: The engineer of the loco-»
motive saw the man lying with his head across
the rail just as the cow-catcher was within about
two feet of hie prostrate body, but it was then
too late to do anything to prevent what follow
ed. The wheels passed over the man’s neck, com
pletely severing the head from the trank. It is
supposed the man was a railroad employe, as he
Lad switch keys in his pocket, but nothing was
found on his person that would lead to his iden
tification. The dead man was about 20 years of
age.

Albany live Stock Market*
■ Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
Albany, N. y., Oct. 13.—Beeves— The market
opened this week with a good supply of cattle-of aver
age quality, and there was every prospect of a good
business bong done, but whether, through the care
lessness of those in charge of the yards or from some
unforeseen cause, the water supply in the' yards jsud-*
denly foiled, and all through the week only a small
quantity has.been attainable. The cattle, as a conse
quence, suffered considerably from the drought, but.
this was not all, for dealers being fully aware that the
shrinkage in cattle from want.of water would be from
sixty to eighty pounds per head refused to sen until
the cattle were watered. The attendance of buyers
from Kew York and Brighton, and also for the local
trade was good, and all were willing to pay last week’s
flgrirea for cattle, but very few could be obtained,
the sellers in those cases having procured
water for their stock from private sources.
Some few herds were also bought without
having been watered, but at an increased price suf-.
fldent to compensate for the loss by shrinkage. On
Thursday and Friday, only about 700 head changed
hands, and the market closed dull and heavy. Tester-'
day, - a supply of water was obtained, and holders
were ready to sell, but it was evident that the oppor
tunity had gone, for, although there was a largely in
creased supply, very few buyers appeared in the
yards. The market was dragging until nearly noon,
when prices fell per lb. Even this failed, to pro
duce anything like activity, although a large number
of herds were sold, and the market continued un
steady, and finally dosed weak. This morning, no
improvement was visible, and although holders tried
to sell their cattle, buyers seemed to think a still fur
ther reduction would take place by holding off. In
this they were mistaken, for Waixds, and Bosenthal,
and other prominent holders, refused to let the cattle
goat unreasonable prices, preferring to ship them
forward to Eastern markets. From the appearance
of the yards this afternoon, *it seems more pro.,
bable that holders will lose considerably thfg week,- as
not a sole worthy of mention has taken placesisce.
Friday, and considerably more than the receipts
were shipped East.
