Author of “The Hoosier School-Master/*
**• Its earlier chapters read like a'Western Idyl; but Ur.
£ggleston soon gets ua into the grotesaae scenes which bo
draws ao strongly, and Gottlieb Wehle, the Backwoods
the Steam-Doctor, Cynthy Ann, the
**Hawk,”the “Mod-Clerk,” and, above all, Jonas Har
rison, one of the most effective Western characters ever
drawn, snake a rare gallery of original portraits. The
speeches of Gottlieb. Jonas, Cynthy Ann, and the Philoso
pher, are foil of a delightful humor, while the Night Ad
venture of August, the Mob Scene, the life-like descrip
tion of gambling in the saloon of a Mississippi steamboat,
are drawn most vividly. The interview at the Castle can
hardly be read without tears, and the chapters entitled
■“The Last Day” and “The Midnight Alarm” contain
pictures of religions excitement each as cannot be found
elsewhere In English literature, while the. mob and
•“sbivereeV scenes are pervaded by an irresistible spirit
of fun, and the reader will fully appreciate BUI Day’s
longing for “ somethin* Indlkeroas.” The moral influence
of the book Is of the healthiest kind.
* * The leading critics assigned a very high place to * ‘The
.Hoosier School-Master,” and we feel sure that “The End
«£ the World” win place ita author in the front rank of
American writers of fiction, and we predict for it a sac
cess unsurpassed by any American story that has yet been
written. It will contain fifteen fnll-pago engravings, and
ttany other illustrations; Price, $1.50.”

The Presidential Prospects—A Re-
view of the Field.
Consultation of Prominent Lib
erals and Democrats
in New York.
Miscellaneous Items from Various Quarters.
Special Despatch ft- The Chicago Tribune.
New Y6rk, Ocfc. 15,—Members of the National
Democratic Committee from New York, North
Carolina, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, New Jersey,
Michigan, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin have
been in New York for the last forty-etght hours
in Consultation with prominent Liberals as to the
Presidential prospects. The reports received
were generally encouraging, and point to a very
close and doubtful contest in November. Eighty
per cent of the Gorman vote in Illinois is claimed
for Koerner for Governor, and for Greeley, and
it is expected that the Germans ftill carry Illi
nois for Gteoley* II was claimed by the Ohio
representative that from 6,000 to 8,000 Liberals
refused to vote at the late election, and that in
the lower tiers of counties there are from 3,000
to 4,000 Democrats who will not vote fdr Greeley
unless personal exertion of leading Democrats
induce them ti>. , It was stated that Pendleton
and Thurman had agreed toenterupon a person
al canvass of the doubtful districts, Mr. Han
som, of North Carolina, reported that the result
of the election in Georgia bad inspired the
whole South, and if it were not for a
fear that New York and Connecticut had given
up the contest the South would be a unit for
Greeley, He was apprehensive that New York
and Connecticut were rendered doubtful by the
result in Pennsylvania. Messrs. Tilden and
Schell scouted tho idea, and made the most posi
tive statements of the ability of the Democrats,
aided by votes of 60,000 Liberal Bepubllcans, to
carry New York, while Connecticut was assured
by the result of the late town elections. Tho
entire Committee was of tho opinion that New
Jersey was safe, though Governor Bandolph said
there had been a considerable importation of ne
troea in railroad towns. The member from In
iana announced that Greeley's majority in that
State will be ten thousand.
Sr. Louis, Oct. 14.—Carl Sohurz made a speech
at Si Charles last night, in wbichhe said the Lib*
erals intended to fight vigorously to the end of
the campaign; that there was nothing in events
which had just taken place, and in the circum
stances surrounding them, which would in any
way dampen the spirit of men engaged in the
Liberal move. He said if Grant is elected the
country would witness the most corrupt Admin
istration it had ever seen. He denied that there
was freedom of election in the South, and
prophesied a time when they would have to fight
fire with fire, force with force, and the country
would witness the deplorable results seen
in Mexico and South America. He
said four years from now they
might be forced to elect Grant,
for a third time, and they would not be able to
help themselves, for in that time he would be
able to elect himself. He stated that he had
always been a Republican, always advocated the
principles of that party, always indorsed its
course, and that the principles which he advo
cated and the course which he pursued as a Re
publican are his principles and his course still.
He had never deviated from them, and now re
joiced in the virtual accomplishment of all he
ever contended for. He acknowledged the re
verses. and that the issues of the campaign are
doubtful, but the conclusion he drew was that,
there being danger, they must prepare for it. If
they had difficulties to conquer they must put
forth every effort. They had terrible odds
against them, but so long as there is a fight, so
long there is hope of victory.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
E l Faso, EL, Oct. 15.—The Liberals held a
large and enthusiastic mass meeting here to
day. There was a fine procession, consisting of
cavalry and wagons, with beauty, banners and
voters. In the afternoon Senator Trumbull
spoke to a hall crowded fullpf people,many stand
ing clear outside the door. The address was con
vincing, and the crowd enthusiastic. This evening
we had a grand torchlight procession, and Gen
eral Black, our next Lieutenant Governor, spoke
from & Democratic standpoint, and addressed
himself particularly to his fellow-soldiers. His
speech was very telling, and produced immense
eclat among the veterans, and also all honest
Woodford County abounds with Liberals, and
the Democrats are very active. They are much
incensed at the palpable frauds in Pennsylvania,
and all are greatly encouraged at the favorable
result in Indiana, which is generally conceded to
insure Greeley's election. Oglesby's friends are
making a desperate effort to carry this Sena
torial District, and it is a splendid place for
them to waste powder.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune,
Washington, Oct. 15. —Among the President's
prominent visitors to-day was Governor Fletch
er, of Missouri, who arrived in this city yester
day. In conversation with several prominent
Administration men outside the portals of the
White House, he confidently gave the electoral
vote of Missouri to Grant by 20,000. He does
not think that the German Bepubllcan vote will
be large enough to make any decided impression
on the canvass, while he claims 75 per cent of
the large emigration to Missouri since the last
Presidential election, to the Bepublicans.
New York, Oct. 15. —The Democratic Na

Detailed Account of the Raid on
the Waterford, IV. Na
tional Bank.
Statements of the Family of
the Cashier.
The Most Extraordinary Affair on
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
New Yobk, Oct. 15.—Mail advices of the great
robbery of the National Bank at Waterford, N.
Y., by nine disguised burglars, are at band,
proving the affair to have been one of the most
extraordinary in the annals of crime. The cash*
ier, Yanhaevenburgj and bisfamily, were quietly
sleeping, on Monday night, in their apartments
in the rear of the banki What followed their
rude awakening is thus told by the family. Mr.
Yanbaevonburg, Cashier, says: “Theburglars
hauled me out of bed. There were two great,
strong men, one on each side of me, held a re*
volver at the side of my head, find
bade me make no noise; They took
me down stairs to the bank vault, and told mo
to open it or they would blow my brains out. I
faltered and hesitated, as long as I dared, and,
finally, went to work at the lock to open it. They
bad my hands in handcuffs behind my back, and
made me work at the lock in that way. I spent
about an hour in delaying them in this way, hop
ing that some one would come by the bank on
the street and give the alarm. They had men
stationed outside the bank at all points to
give them warning of the approach of anybody.
Every little while one of the men from the out
side would come in and say, ‘Ain’t that got
that lock open yet? Wehadbetterheathls brains
out, and end him.” Then they told mo if I did
not hurry they would kill me, and blow up the
safe. Ihe only excuse I could make to. them
was that I coula not do anything with my hands
fastened behind me. Then they loosened the
cuffs from oho of my hands, and told me to
‘be quick and open that lock. 1 I spent
about twenty minutes more in delay, and
' when I found it was useless to resist any longer
I opened the lock. They then placed the hand
cuffs on my hands, and remained there till they
had completed the robbing of the safe. They
had dark lanterns and dirk knives, and every
utensil for the thorough pursuit of the villains*
calling. After they got through they took me
up stairs and placed me in 5 bedroom alone by
myself, where I only remained about a minute.
The last of their footsteps had not died out in
the hall when I got up and took the revolver with
my hands still behind me and went down stairs.
My daughter Sarah had slipped the cuff from her
hand, aud she cut the rope which bound my feet.
The men were in the bouse about three hours.
It was near 4 o’clock when, they left. When I
got to the door I fired five times from the revol
ver to alarm the neighbors, hut it was so dark I
could not see where the men went to. They had
loft before I got down. Don’t know whether
they had a wagon or not.”
Mrs . Vaiihaeveriburg's Statement, —The first
I heard was a loud knock at my room
door. I did not know what to make of it. In
another minute the room was fall of men. One
of them came to the bedside, and took hold of
my husband and hauled him out. I begged them
to spare his life. They said they would not
harm him, hut wo must keep still. After
they took him out of the room, they went look
ing around the room. One of them asked me
whore my diamonds were. 1 said I did not have
any; that we Wore all poor in the
house. He said he did not believe
it. He took Up my watch from the dressing
table and looked at it. I asked him what time it
was. He replied X o’clock. He said he would
not take the watch. They came there for
money, aud money they would have. He laid
down on the sofa and placed a pillow under his
head. Then I said “ You are one of the scoun
drels who robbed the Ballston Bank, but you
managed to got some of the stolen goods
back there again.” He said he was on the
canal, and did not know anything about
the affair. During this time 1 asked for
my daughters, and they wore brought in and
placed in the bed with mo, and my little hoy,
about 10 years of ago. Wo did not have any
fags in our mouths at this time. Boon my little
oy began to cry and make a noise. One of the
men down in the hall heard him, and said to
some one near him, “Go and cut that
throat aud stop his noise.” The man came np
and took the ooy out of bed. I pleaded witn
him not to hurt him. He said be would
not. He took him away and placed
him in a dark clothes-press, and covered turn up
with bed clothes, and closed the door on him,
and then went down stairs again to where the
men were at work on the safe. All the time
they were in my room they were very polite to
ns. They got pillows and put them under onr
heads, and when I asked for my little boy, when
they had taken him away, they assured me that
he was safe. I asked one of the men how he got
into the house, and ho said it made no
difference. They got in, and were there for
money, and would get it before they left the
house. During this time some of the men were
in the hall, some in the room, and one was lying
on the sofa, hut he soon got up and placed his
pillow in the doorway. He wanted to know
what time the milkman came along, and I told
him about half-past 7in the morning. He told
me that 1 knew I was lying to him when I said
that. Another asked me when my butcher
came. 1 told him we did not have
the butcher came to the house. We had to go to
the market for our moat. After they hod got
all through down stairs, they came np and com
menced to gag us. One sat down on the side of
the bed and deliberately tore the sheets into
strips, tied knots on the strips, and made gaga
which they put into onr months. They also
tied our feet with cord rope. They first rolled
some of the tom sheet around our ankles, so
the cords would not cat them. After all this had
been done they closed all the room doors
and went out. Shortly after they came into the
room and took Mr. Yanhaevenburgh out, one of
them asked me for the revolver. I told him I
didn’t know where it was. He said, “ You did
not get a chance to use it, did you ? ” After
they got through rifling the hank, they came up
to the men in the ball, aud all went out. They
had not been gone over a minute or two before
I heard Mr. Yanhaevenburgh trying to get out of
bed in the next room. I called to him
the best I could to he still
or they would murder him. I soon heard him
fo down stairs to alarm the neighbors. My
aughter Sarah cut the strings which bound my
feet. The handcuffs had to he filed off.”
Miss Sarah Vanhaeveiiburgh's statement —l
sleep in a room alone. The first I heard was a
load noise. I thought I was dreaming. When
I came to my senses there were two men in the
room beside my bed. One of them placed his
hand over my month, the other placed the steel
handcuffs on my nands, after he put my
hands behind me. They let me remain
where I was at first, aud finauy took me into my
mother’s room and placed mo m bed with her. X
then remained quiet, and they did not harm me.
After the man placed the gag in my month, hav
ing first placed it in the pitcher of water on the
table, he patted me gently on the cheek and told
me not to be frightened. My ma said she was
sick, and he said that was too thin. He took one
of the caffs off her hand, and made her lie
down. She had been sitting up in bed before.
When they left the room I slipped my hand out
of one of the cuffs, and got a knife and cut the
ropes which were on my feet, and all the ropes
from the feet of all the others in the house.
The burglars treated the other daughter in the
same way. While the men were in the house no
name was mentioned. One was heard to ask
for “No. D.” This is supposed to be the num
ber of the men in the house, but there were
probably some. in the yard outside who kept
watch, and did not come in. The yard is
surrounded by a high brick wall. All the doors
iu the house were locked and bolted. When
they got ready to go out, they compelled Mr.
Yanhaevenburgh to unfasten tho front door and
let them out into the street. Ho did not sec
which direction they went. Some of the neigh
bors say they heard a wagon on the street about
*1 o’clock in the morning. A man who was get
ting his Morses ready to so out drawing sand,
1 JpWI
about quarter to4o’clo
with a wagon load of mr
direction of Cohoes. w - .
saw several men dressed m u
the Waterford Bridge. It is supposed that when*
they left the house they separated and went in
different directions. When the burglars left
the bank they took with them everything that
would lead to their detection. They all wore
masks of various kinds till after they left the
bank. All that was found were two dark lan
terns and a lot of new steel handcuffs, which
were taken possession of by the Troy officers
who went up to work up the case. The bank
vault was completely gutted. The books, papers,
and everything they did not want to take off
they scattered over the bank door.

Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
Washxkgtok, D. 0., Ocfc. 15. —General Gar
field, having done his part toward the campaign
in Pennsylvania and Ohio, will return here to
morrow to attend to bis duties as Chairman of
the House Committee on Appropriations. A
meeting of a portion of the Committee will soon
be held for the purpose of considering the va
rious bills for the next session. Estimates are
being made by the several Departments. Tho
Committee expect that all the appropriation
bills will have been thoroughly considered by
the Committee on the first day of the session.
As the next session of Congress will only
last three months it is proposed to attend to the
business of the country first, and not leave the
indispensable work to be rushed through in a
crude if not dishonest condition on the last days
of the session.
The Marshalltown Bonk, of lowa, was one of
the earliest to organize under the National
Banking Act, its incorporation dating as far
back as 1864. Its quarterly statements
and annual reports to the Currency
Bureau have always shown it to
be in a Nourishing condition. Indeed
so safe and profitable have been the business
transactions that its stockholders and Directors
admit that their annnal profits have never gone
much below 50 per cent. But prosperity baa
ruined the organization. After a tedious and
protracted quarrel among themselves, the
parties sought the intervention of the Comp
troller of the Currency. Among other charges
the fatal one of usurious interest was hit on,
and upon this issue alone the Comp
troller assumed jurisdiction of the case.
It will be remembered that one
of the provisions of the National Bank act, is
that no bank organized thereunder shall charge
any greater interest than that allowed by the
laws of the State. One set of stockholders de
sired a forced liquidation, and they had a hear
ing through counsel to-day, through their
attorney, C. Henderson. Another clique oppos
ed thin action, arguing that the funds of the
bank were all right, and that liquidation
could not be required of a bank
that was able to pay dollar for dollar. The
Comptroller of the Currency has not officially
decided the muddle yet, but he said to-day infor
mally that the best thing the bank could da
would be to go into voluntary liquidation.
The Secretary of the Treasury has written a

J. V, Creeley, member of the present Congress
from the Second District of Pennsylvania, the
wealthiest and most aristocratic district of Phil
adelphia, is said to be the person to whom the
Associated Press despatches refer as a probable
defaulter, owing 820,000 to various persons for
whom he was Trustee. Creeley was the
creation of Simon Cameron, who had
quarrelled with Charles O’Neill, Greeley's
predecessor, and set up Creeley to beat him.
The usual accessaries prevailed, and O’Neill waa
left out of Congress till this year, when he
begged forgiveness, and the Winnebago Chief
let him up. Creeley, meantime, came to Wash
ington, studiously absented himself from his
seat, and was a nonentity, except with those
Government clerks and city police officers with,
whom he associated. He has not been seen for
several months. He leaves many debts here
among hotel keepers, saloons, &c. Judge
Kelley is now the only Republican Congressman
in Pennsylvania who dares to fight Cameron.
Conyers, the recently appointed colored mid
shipman, is having about as bod a time of it at
the Annapolis Naval Academy as Cadet Smith
did at West Point. On last Friday night, when

attack was made on Conyers by some score of
rniddys, who kicked and cuffed him uncere
moniously. A cadet officer rushed in with &
drawn sword among the crowd that had gather
ed about the unfortunate cadet and stopped the
attack. Midshipman Conyers could recognize
only one of his assailants. Two colored attend
ants, who we made a guard to him, were beaten
at the same time. The President’s attention has
been called to this matter, and he haapronounced
that all the parties engaged in the affair shall be

Washington. Oct. 15.—Secretary Boutwell has
addressed the following letter to the Third Audi
tor of the Treasury:
Sm: You are requested to suspend action
upon claims for stores and supplies fur
nished ostensibly for the use of the
army in all cases where the required
returns have not been made by the receipting
officer. This course is made necessary by the
fact that ox-officers of the army have in
some instances given their official cer
tificates and receipts for forage and
other supplies, dating them years before
the time vmen they were actually made, in or
der to bring them within the scope of their
official authority, thus leaving an open door for
collusion and fraud in the absence of so im
portant guard as official returns.
(Signed) Geo. S. Boutwell.

Department between
Commissioner of Indian Affairs, and a large

sides this general address, the business with
each tribe would be taken np in detail, separate
