HOW THE ELECTION COMMISSIONERS WILL
DO IT IN NEW YORK.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
New Yobk, Oot. 23.—Commissioner Daven
port, of New York, was an aid under General
Bntler, in New Orleans. As to the comments of
the New York press bn his condnct, be remark
ed, in the presence of numerous bystanders, in
his office, yesterday: “I am independent of
them. I shall carry out the enforcement of the
law to the letter.” In a comer of Davenport’s
office there is a telegraphic instrument, which
communicates with bis house, and also with the
headquarters of the Custom House Re
publican Committee in the Fifth
Avenue Hotel. This instrument, it
is said, is to be used by Davenport in ordering
arrests of obnoxious citizens before, and on the
day of, election. Blank warrants bearing Daven
port’s signature will be in readiness in every
district, and it will only bo necessary to write
in the names of parties who are to be taken into
A telegraphic instrument has also been placed
in the Grand Jury room, at the dis
posal of Colonel Desanges, Chief Depu
ty Marshal, who is to have, next
to General Sharpe, complete charge of the polls
on the day of election.
Davenport has assured his Bepnblican friends
that he will so administer his office as to re
duce the vote of this city to 120,003, in which
case he calculates there will be a majority of
5,000 for Grant. The Grant frauds in Philadel
phia are to be cast in the shade by the Grant
frauds in this city, which gave Seymour in 1868
GRAND LIBERAL DEMONSTRATION AT BELLE
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune .
Belleville, 111., Oct. 23. —The grand rally of
the campaign was had here by the Liberals to
day and this evening. People came in from all
parts of the country, and were addressed this
afternoon by Senator Trumbull and Jndge
Eustace, in Turner's Hall, which was crowded to
suffocation. The Senator spoke to the citizens
of his home in early manhood with much feel
ing, and was very effective. Judge
Eustace mode a most telling address,
driving a nail home with almost every sen
tence, and producing intense enthusiasm.
This evening the town has been absolutely
wild with excitement. The pyrotechnic display
was truly magnificent. For a time the rockets,
Boman candles, and blue lights made the scene
bright as day. The air seemed filled with fall
ing stars, and thousands of people were gath
ered on the streets, all partaking of the general
ioy, rendering the scene if possible more bril
liant. was the grandest torch-light procession
that nas ever marched in Southern Illinois. A
large processions were formed in each ward and
marched towards the Court House square,
which was dazzling to behold, as were all the
streets leading from it for the distance of sev
eral squares. It was nearly impossible to get■
through the crowd, which was cheering vocifer
ously for Greeley, Brown, Koemer, Trumbull,
Eustace, and other Liberal leaders. No pen
can picture the vast enthusiastic assemblage
of men, women, and children tonight, <
crowding the streets of the home of Koemer.,
The vast multitude were eloquently addressed,
by the next Vice President, Hon. B. Gratz,
Brown, from the Court House steps. He was
followed in a telling speech by Hon. Casper 1
Butz, who evidently produces a deep impression.,
St.Clair County is alive to the momentous issues '
of the hour, and will prove the thoughtful in

THE DEPARTMENT CLERKS ABANDONING BUBL
NESS FOR POLITICS.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune,
Washington, Oct. 23. —From this time until
the week after the Presidential election the pub
lic business in Washington will be left to take
care of itself. Every Grant voter, from the head
of a Department or Bureau down to the poorest
messenger, is required to be on hand, and the
exit from the city has already begun. All the
clerks in the departments have been
already paid for the month of Oc
tober, six or eight days in advance
of the usual time, and, by the last of next week,
if the exit continues, there will not b© officers
enough in the city to attend to the current busi
ness of the Government.
The report telegraphed from this city to the
New York JSxening J*osl t that Hon. Josm D. De

cally denied by that gentleman, who says he
believes that it only requires courage nod effort

LIBERAL MOVEMENT IN ROCKFORD,
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune.
Bockfobs, HI., Oct. 23.—General Farnsworth
addressed a large and enthusiastic audience in
Brown’s Hall to-night. His speech was oneof the
most stirring of the campaign. He defied any
Grant man present to answer his clinching argu
ments, and fearlessly exposed the corruption
that is undermining the whole Administration.
The cheers at the mention of the names of
Horace Greeley, Charles Sumner, Lyman Tram
hull, and Carl Schurz were deafening, and
demonstrated clearly the state of public senti
The manner in which the speaker defended his
character against the vile calumnies that have
been circulated about him, was well received
by the audience, and their whole sympathy
seemed to go with him. At 11 o’clock he
closed bis speech, which was listened to
throughout with the most profound attention.
The reception of General Farnsworth in Bock-i
ford was more enthusiastic than that of auyl
speaker during the campaign.
The Liberal element is gaining ground every
day in Bockford, and that, too, in the very teeth
of the dark ways used by the opposition party
to get votes.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OPINION ON NEW
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune,
Washington, D. C., Oot. 23.—Attorney Gen
eral Williams, after hie return from his canvass
in the interior of New York, expressed the belief
that it was not possible for Greeley to carry that
State, as the party managers in the various dis
tricts since the October elections had abandoned
all hope of electing Greeley, and were now ex
pending their whole energy to elect Keman. To
this end the Democrats and Liberals were trad
ing votes for Neman's benefit, famishing a vote
for Grant, and obtaining in return one for Ker
nan. By this means, the Attorney General said,
they hoped to defeat General Dix for Governor.

THE GEORGETOWN COAL TRADE.
Washington, D. C., Oct. 23.—The people of
this District, surfeited with politics, are now ex
periencing a genuine sensation in the growing
up of important commercial connections with
England and the British Provinces, growing out
of the coal famine. Coal is now being shipped
from the port of Georgetown direct to India, to.
South America, and the West Indies. It is au
thoritatively stated that several hundred
thousand tons of American coal have recently
been purchased here on orders transferred
from England to the United States. The great
er portion of these purchases is of the soft bitu
minous coal of Maryland, and will be filled at
the Cumberland mines, and will be sent thence
to Georgetown by way of the Chesapeake .&
Ohio Canal for transhipment. Several vessels
have already left this port within a few weeks
with cargoes of soft coal for foreign countries,
and others are expected to arrive and clear be
fore the close of navigation. Foreign bottoms
are mainly employed for this service, because of
their peculiar rig and construction, which ren
ders them more seaworthy than American ves
The advance guard of the large body of emi
grants from Alsace and Lorraine, who
are to settle in the neighborhood of
Alexandria, have reached that city, and
are now engaged in prospecting for favorable
sites wherein to settle. Some time will be de
voted by these immigrants to the inspection of
several tracts of land which are in the market in
that section of Virginia. They desire not less
than 4,000 acres in a body, though they would
prefer a much larger quantity, and will be gov
erned by the price and location of the land. The
colony now numbers about 200 families, who
are skilled in arts, manufactures, and farming.
They propose to form a joint stock company,
locate a town, and lay out farms, etc. Their
purpose is to exclude all others from the colony
but those who came with them, for the term of
five years, during which time no one of the
colony will be authorized to dispose of any por
tion of the lands purchased and embraced with
in their survey. If they can be suited in Vir
ginia on good terms, they say they can increase
their colony to 2,000 families without any.
THE CUBBEKOV QUESTION.
Application has been made to the bank-note
companies of New York to have engrossed and
printed'certificates of deposit made payable to
bearer in the similitude of bank notes. Parties
are here to urge this action by the Treasury De
partment. The letter of the law does not pro
hibit this, but the spirit of the law is believed to
be conclusively in opposition thereto. The law
designates what should be currency, and explic
itly provides that nothing shall be issued in the
shape of a circulating medium but National Bank
notes and legal tenders. At present the National
Banks issue certificates of deposit which are pay
able to order, but not in a form to be used in the
way of general circulation. If, then, these cer
tificates of deposit are commonly issued by
banks, quite naturally they, as this proposition
would indicate, are intended as notes for gen
eral circulation. By the adoption of the mode
now proposed, the so-called wild-cat banking
would bo again inaugurated in its worst possible
form. The banks from which the certificates
are to emanate would have the sanction of the
United States Treasury to do business as Na
tional Banks. Although such banks may have
given security for only 850,000, they might issue
ieir certificates of deposit with impunity to al
most a fabulous amount.
diplomatic nrmounra— fish, washbubne, ei
It is pretty well authenticated that the Secre
tary of State is not now among the most popular
of the Cabinet ministers at the White House. Of
course time changes all things. One year ago
when Mr. Fish decided to retire, the
President was so averse to the change,
that he caused a paper to be
circulated requesting United States Senators to
ash Fish to remain. The condition of affairs is
now so different that the President has caused
it to be intimated to the head of the State De
partment through an intimate friend of both
parties that the resignation of the latter will be
accepted whenever it is found convenient to
tender it. The cause of this change of friend
ship, it is stated, is the desire of Washbumeto.
return from Europe. Our French Minister has
not found his position a bed of roses. The reasons
for this repugnance are partly political, but
largely of a social character. Mr. Fish has long
desired to go abroad, but only in the capacity of
Minister to St. James. If the arrangement can
be amicably made to transfer Schenck to Paris,
there will be no difficulty in satisfying this in
trigue all around. This is the latest piece of
diplomatic gossip going the rounds here, and it
is oased on more than ordinary authority.

Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune .
New York, Oct. 23.—The money market was
rather irregular to-day, though not so dear as
yesterday. The general rate on call was 7 per
cent, and the market was very uniform at this
rate until nearly the close, when there was a de
cline to £ per cent. Time loans are quoted at 7
per cent and a commission, the latter varying
according to the collaterals and standing of the
borrower. Gold loans on time are quoted at
% per cent for the use of gold; %to % P er
cent for the balance of the year, and ££
per cent for six months. The best mercantile
paper sells at 10 to 12per cent, 9 per cent being
an exceptional rate. The prospect of an advance
in the Bank of England rate to-morrow was
much discussed. Private telegrams from Lon
don to-day in some cases report money stringent,
and in others easier. The outflow of gold from
the bank is the pivot upon which the rate of
interest turns, and we are entirely ignorant here
of the extent of this outflow. Some arrange
ments ought to he made whereby the cable
would give some light in regard to thia import
THE GOLD CORNER.
The comer in cash gold was renewed with in-
creased vigor in ihe Gold Boom to-day. Before
•the case of the Clearing Honse most of the
loans were made at % to & per cent, but during
the afternoon cash gold was made still scarcer,
and as high as 1 per cent was paid. It was
stated that one broker alone borrowed $1,000,000
at this rate. The Bank of Montreal is still cred
ited with making this squeeze in cash gold, and
among those who had to borrow gold
there was much feeling against that
concern. The effect on foreign ex
change rates was comparatively trifling, but
business generally was checked. The November
interest is coming out of the Treasury slowly,
and has not yet bean of much assistance in easing
the gold market.

This morning, John Heenan, a special Deputy
Marshal assigned to duty in the Seventh Ward,
entered the store of Mr. Chaa. Hussey, a liquor
dealer on the comer of Madison and Oliver
streets, and began asking him several questions
touching his right to vote. Mr. Hussey declined
to reply, and told the Marshal that he had no
right to put them. The Marshal insisted he had
authority, and would arrest him if he persisted
in refusing to give him the information sought.
Mr. Hussey told him to leave his store, but ha
declined, and Mr. Hussey then ejected him. He
then rushed to the office of Commissioner Dav
enport and made a charge against Hupey for
resisting bim in the execution of his duty, aud
Davenport issued a warrant. Hussey was taken
before Commissioner Davenport. There were
quite a number of Radical politicians
m the court room. all eagerly
waiting a disposition of the case. When Mr.
Hussey was arraigned. Commissioner Daven
port informed him that he was charged with the
offence of resisting a special Deputy Marshal
while engaged in the duty of verifying the regis
try. Mr. Hussey said he believed he had a rigut
to refuse to answer questions put to him by
complainant; He had, he said, - read an editorial
in a morning paper in which citizens were told
that they need not answer questions
put by election officers, and he
believed that that was good
legal advice. A Radical politician here exclaimed
that it might bo necessary to haul up young
James Gordon Bennett, Jr., for writing such an
editorial as that. He would, he said, go in for
doing that if necessary. Mr. Hussey said he
thought every citizen had a legal right to be sa
enzefrom interference in his home or place of
business. Commissioner Davenport fixed the
bail at SSOO. Mr. Hussey then left the court
room with his friends.
