Iho greater nart of the estate of Horace F. Clark, Vanderbilt’s eon-in-law. has been enoue wtlv reported as s« opt away by the September ramc. Tho decline on hia stocks and securities MS enormous; but the Commodore looked after the cropertv, and prevented any sacrifice.

Daniel Drew has been ect down as a bankrupt by the wail street crisis of last autumn; but ho bus cot lost enough to hurt him. The old Siethodist sharper, as they call him on the Ex churre, was supremely scared, and has frequent ly umuimced that bo »os mined. This is a fa * Torito cry with him, when he wants to make set- UemQuie, or bo let off easily, and consequently carries no weight. He failed to lealizo large amounts which he confidently exsocied, and these he counts as positive losses. ,He does not. enjoy tho reputation of a chival rous or an upright adversary in' Broad ccrect; tnd hence the suits brought against him by the brokers. They say ho is so ungenerous himself that ho has no right to bo treated with consideration. They would not have thought of instituting legal proceedings under similar cir cumstances against any operator. Persona in a position to know declare that lire entire financial harm Drew has sustained from Sept, 18 to tho present would bo covered bv 8500,000, and that £e ia still worth, or will bo when things have fully settled, 87.000.00U to 86,00U,000, Jar Gould has been consigned by many to jonutary perdition during the past three months. His reported retirement from the btrect was deemed indubitable evidence of bis failure. Those -intimate with the shrewd financier aro better advised. He had his object in ostensibly withdrawing from tho speculative arena; and his object has been already obtained. It will be remembered he was uncomfortably complicated with non-paying New Jersey Southern and other railway interests, and it accordingly behooved him to bow himself out. By so doing, he avoided certain legal responsi bilities, and it ia affirmed things aro now ar ranged to suit him. Such a man as he could not keep out of the excitement of Wall street' if ho wanted to, and ho certainly does not want to. But for the panic ho would have made at least 63,000,000 to 84,000.000; and therefore he is nega tively so much the poorer. How belt, his positive locses are as&u:icd to bo very small—inside of 8500, Out). He is, at present, actively and largely interested in stuck and gold sneculation, and w ill be heard from as the head and front of now com binations. He is trying to act clandestinely, having been annoyed exceedingly by tho pub licity, or rather the notoriety, ho has acquired. For every scheme and intngueof the sticebbo was held responsible, and ho says, truly enough, that he has sufficient sins of his own to answer for without any additional accountability. lie adds that he could not draw 8100 for household cxpoafccs. except at the risk of being accused of locking up greenbacks. Hia respect for the penetration oi the public is not great. It ia, ho declares, always blundering. It has charged him over and again with doing what ho Los not done, end has failed to discover hia plainest transactions. He is much amused, lam told, by the reiterated story of hia owning tae Tribvne, of which he doss not possess, and nevor expects to possess, tho hundredth part of a single share. Gould’s friends aver that ho has had large gains aad losses this year; that the former largely exceed the latter, and that ho can to-day com mand 810,000,000 of hia own means, and four times as much belonging to olhcis. Henry K. Smith boa beeu a sufferer to the ex tent of some 82,000.000, mainly through Gould’a superior tactics, but bo has 82,000,000 to 83,- 000,0*30 left, is full of hope, and expects to re pair leases next May. Some twelve mouths since be bad over 88,000,000 in cash, and was thought to be tho predestined leader of Wall street. This was Ida ambition, and in trying to achieve it his wealth was seriously impaired. Hia great cat dcrire at present is to get even with Gould, toward whom he feels very bitterly. Ho will tpaie no effort to that cud', though the acquaint ances of ibo two men think Gould the more as tute and peispicacious. and that Smith would evince wi-dom by letting his adverbary severely alone. H. K*.

He chose it for a speculative *neld, and has accomplished much more than ho had any reason to hope for. How ha will come out remains to bo seen.

Indians Kidnapped from Xhclr Legal Custodians* From the La Crosse Itepublicqn, Dec, 30. Capt. Hunt, agent for tho lemoval of tho Winoebatroep, is using commendable energy in collecting tho stioU.ng Lands and isolated camps of these Indians. Starting from Sparta on the 20th, with twenty-three captured from tho Lcmonwcir and Caramany’s and Yankee Bill's camp, numbering ninety in all, the train stopped at tue mouth of Trempealeau Bivor. and with Lieut, rfUifford' and six men, a deploy of a mile and half on each side of the track was made and twenty-six Indians captured, and were on tho train with all their baggage in forty minutes from the time the train first stopped. Further skirmishing through tho woods, Islands, and sloughs discovered a camp of thirty Indians, and they were disarmed and captured before they were awake. They made uo resist ance, and but one of tho Indians made auy talk, or remonstrance. Ho was a straggler from Boot Diver, and ho waa allowed to go homo and secure his effects, but hia family were taken to Sparta, where ho followed the next day. On Friday a detail of eix soldiers, under com mand of & corporal, and accompanied by Mr. Cash, who ia assisting Capt. Hunt, proccod’cd to Keedsburg, and on Saturday they surrounded a camp m that village aud captured thirty-eight Indians and took them to the depot, wncre they had to await nearly all day for transportation. About evening, and os the traiu came along that should take tho captives to Sparta, a chan named Dan Buell appealed with a writ of habeas corpus, issued by a Court Commissioner named Haul, and claimed Artichokor and ten other In dians as citizens of the Sc&to. Tno corporal indorsed on the writ that ho was acting by order of the President of tho United States, but that was not accepted as sufficient by Buell, aud ho presto! imo his posse about 200 citizens, who overpowered the guatd aud rescued tho Indians cade! for in the writ. Tho soldiers gave them up under protest, and proceeded with tho others to Sparta. What this now rebellion against United Slates authority will amount to wiilrc m.hu to be tested. It ia. however, euro that the ill-advised action of the local authorities of Itcoaebmg has placed them ia an attitude of insurrection, and tJieir punishment should bo severe enough to deter others from followiug their silly aud perilous ex ample. It was only by virtue of numerical strength that they succeeded in consummating iheir outi ago, and if they undertake it again they will perhaps lind themselves rudely awakened to a tuio sense of their' reckless behavior. It is claimed tlut Artichokcr is to all intents and pur poses a citizen of the State, and owning land in the town of Lincoln. Monroe County, and that the other Indians specified in tho writ wore of his family ; but it must bo borne in mind that dealings with Indiana aio aud always have been direct between them aud the General Govern ment. aud States are not recognized at all. Toe impropriety of interference by Slate authorities is therefore all the moie unwarrantable. Pcudii.g tho shipments of Indiana they are kept in comfortable quarters at Sparta, aud aa soon as a sufficient squad has boeu collected they are shipped without delay. A IScminisccncc of Pr»f« Agassiz* I'ruin tue Spnngjield (J la**.) iievubiieun. An incident illuotrauve of tno remarkable power of Prof. Agassiz over the popular miud occurred under xnv notice during iiio session of the Legislature of 135‘J. A petition was_ before the House asking an appropriation of SIOO,OOO iu aid of his museum of natural history’ at Cam bridge, aud was referred to tho Committee on Education. It occasioned much comment among the members, a large portion of whom were hos tile to the project at tho start, an utter waste of tho State’s finances. The Repre sentatives from the nual districts partic ularly talked sarcastically of a proposal calling on tho State to establish a “ bug-school ” at such an enormous cost, to gratify tho whim of a half-crazy man, aud a foreigner besides. Tho Commitioc, having had the Professor repeatedly before them in ad vocacy of his favorite theme, aud being charmed with the earnestness aud childish simplicity of the man, resolved to secure his services aud reputation to tho old Bay State by reporting a bill ia accordance with tho petition. Bat they were aware of tho stubborn aud probably successful opposition it would eucouuter ou its presentation, and proposed to forestall it by procuring for him a wider hearing ou tho subject than was afforded by tho walls of tho committee-room, aud for this purpose obtained an order for tho use of tho hall of Repre sentatives, This arrangement gave all tho legislators an opportunity to become acquainted with tho man and his entire devotion to Ins favorite science. On the appointed day tho hall was ciowdcd with tho members of both branches and the elite of tho learned circles of Boston. Tho Professor rose and for nearly an hour, in the quiet, simple, and earnest manner peculiar to him, kept his vast audience in breath less attention to a succinct account of his life, labors, purposes, and aspirations. His were in deed “ thoughts that breathed and words that burned,” —not with the pyrotechnic flame that dazzles and dies without effect, but with the glow of coals of jumper. It was known that he had just declined an invitation from Louis Na poleon to take charge of the Jardiu des Plantes at Paris with a stipend of $18,060 per annum, aud several other eligible proffers from tho crowned heads of Europe. To these ho merely modestly alluded, and dwelt chiefly on the reasons that bad determined him to make our country his home, and devote his energies to tho establishment hero of an institution that should rank every similar enterprise iu the world. Moat affectingly bo al luded to tho munificent aid already ronueicdhim by wealthy aud appreciative gentlemen in Bos ton aud vicinity,—a circumstance which had set tled bis resolve to giro our State the honor of possessing tho great cosmopolitan institute ho proposed to found. Hither, ho prophesied, should the seekers of truth in natural science from every nation come, to enlarge their ac.'pii sitiona, aud tho treasures of tho Massachusetts museum bo quoted throughout tho civilized world, through all future time. It w r as an ap peal to our amor patri®, which, without the least affectation of oratory, wrought tho highest effect of oratory, and, splccd with just enough of foreign accent to interest its auditors, was elo quent bevoud anything I ever heard in that line. Every eye was nxed upon him during hia whole speech, and I obccived some of tho hard-fea tured, hoary opponents of tho “bug-school” bent forward iu profound attention, with tears oven rolling down their bronzed faces. Tho aim of all true eloquence—persuasion—was most triumphantly attained ; aud when tho bill came befoxo the Legislature, it wont on its w-ay rejoicing to nu enactment of which, I believe, old Massachusetts has never repented. E. W. B. Canning. New Tons, Dec. X 7,1573. The Xicliboriic Case—l>r» Kcnealy and. the Judges. London Correspondence Sew York Times. Dr. Kouealy’s speech—the greatest outrage on all the decencies of judicial procedure known in our time—is still goiug ou. He is like the man who found his prison-cell e/cry day becoming smaller and smaller. The i«sues of the case are gradually being closed unon him r and, in despair, ho dashes wildly against the limits of inexorable fact within which ho is confined. If there hod been any doubt before as to thocbaiacter of the claimant, the Luio episode must have lemovcd it. Luio has been ordcicd into custody by the Judges on a charge of perjury, having been shown to bo a convict lately released from Chatham Prison, and it may bo assumed that his evidence, so far as it tells in favor of the claimant, has been dismissed from the case. But where it tells against him it re mains ; for not only did Luio pretend to recog nize the claimant as the Boger who had.bccu saved from the Bella when ho was steward of the Osprey, but the claimant was stated to have rec ognized Luio. So the two must stand or fall together. If l ute’s story is all a lie, the claim ant must have known it. Luie’s evidence as to the interview with the claimant was very dis tinct and positive on this point. Ho said the laiter recognized him at once, and asked, ** How do vou do, Luxe ?” This was evidence prodoced witli the claimant’s sanction, in bis own behalf, and the interview took place in the presence of some of his agents. When Luio first appeared iu court he used to sit beside the claim ant, and tnov chatted together in a most friendly manner. In private, also, they seem to have been ou familiar terms ; but since Luie’s later history has been exposed, the claimant has cut him dead. But it is too late. As to Dr. Kenealy’a attacks ou the Bench, and on the counsel on the other side, they are al to"ctber indecent and inexcusable. The ad ministration of justice would bo brought to a Standstill if similar practices were adopted by other counsel He rambles on from one point to another, darts off with all sorts of irrelevant digressions, accuses the Judges of being insolent aucl unfair if thev venture to interpose a remark, and flings about wild charges of corruption, forgerv, and perjury, in the most reckless manue*r. The’jury have felt bound more than once to express their sympathy with the Bench, and their own indignation at the scandalous waste of time. It Is suggested that Dr. Kenealy, being now hopeless of a ver THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIHITIS'E; ‘FIUDAY, JANUARY 2, 1874. diet, ia anxious to provoke the Court into put ting him to silence, so that it may bo said that bis case was not properly beard out to the end ; but 1 should think the Doctor's temperament and character supply a sufficient explanation. His temi.er is obviously beyond bis control, and he has worked himself up into a state of mind in which he hardly knows what be ia saying. Some years ago he was imprisoned for having, in a fit of ungovernable fury, beaten one of Ms children within an inch of its life. The main tenance of professional honor and discipline at the Bar is left to the benchers of the inns of Court, and Dr. Kenealy’s bencher will probably have something to say to him when the trial is over. GERMAN EMIGRATION. Expulsion off an American Emigra tion Agent from Saxony—Shall the Teutonic Flood Stop ? Hamburg (Dee* 6) Correspondence of the Sop York tier aid. A few days ago X received from a friend in South Germany some interesting documents re lating to German emigration. It is known thfct several mouths ago the Prussian Government is sued an ordinance prohibiting American emigra tion agents to carry on business. In Prussia this ordinance baa not yet taken effect. The Government of Saxony has, however, taken an initiative sicp, as the following letters will show. I will preface them with a few tacts, kindly placed at my disposal. In tiio year 1363 a certain Mr. W. 11. Allardt, of Saginaw, Mich., an American citizen, received the appointment as Emigration Agent lor tho State of Michigan, at a salary of §2,000 a year. Ho first commenced operations at Frankfort-on-tho-Main, where bo published a journal for emigrants, en titled Der Michigan 1 Vegtctiser, a weekly issue, in the German language, devoted to giving ac counts of the climate, soil, and productions of the State of Michigan, and was distributed very largely. Ho likewise published a pamphlet of some 120 pages on the same subject, which, pub lished for a few cents, found a large sale among the peasants, in tne beerhouses, societies, Ac. After rexnaiuiug a year or two in Frankfort, Mr. Allardt removed to’ Hamburg, and last July he removed again to Leipsic, tk-.xony, from which country ho has just betfii expelled, as the follow ing correspondence will show: Lnrsic, Oct. i , 1073. 7b the TTo n. Mv Be an Sib : Yours of Sept. 20 was received in uue time, out I have postponed an answer until I could wtiio to you BoiactiiiUet definite. Tue order of excelling me lias been sustained by the tiixun Min istry of the Interior, and I received one week to leave the State. Herem on I addressed a note to Mr. Ban croft informing him of the situation, and have re ceived the following re^ly; “ Upon receipt of youra I at once addressed a re monstrance to the German Government, and have re quested that a further delay bo granted while the mat ter receives cot sldcrution, and tuut you bo permitted to remain as long aa you obey tho iuvrs. 1 am now availing the result.. On Oct. 26 Hr. Allardt again writes: I have deferred writing until I could give you some thing new in tho case. This morning I received the following note from Mr. Ihmcrof i: “ The German Gov ernment has replied to the remonstrance made oy me m your bemdf and declines to lake steps fur the recall of the order of the Baxou Government of which’’you complain. Before giving further consideration to your case I need to know your present address, unu If you pass through Berlin 1 should te glad to show-you tnr reply I have received and hear wait you have to say therelo.” I am now in daily expectation of tho cnforccmact of tho order of expeimeuu id cell on Mr. ILuctott next Wednesday or Thursday, and eeo what the answer iouUins. My advocate shrugs his shou.deia; he wanted me to petition tho Saxon Minstry of the Inte rior, which I respectfully declined. If I have no ngut to remain here Ido not want to stay for Gud's soke. Will keep you informed in the matter. On Nov. 5 he again writes from Leipsic: About to leave for a few days, I hasten to inform you of tho situation. I called on Mr. Bancroft * row days ago and saw the reply of the German Government to Mr. Bancroft’s remonstrance. They claim that I do not directly, but indirectly, encourage emigration with my publications; that 1 have in several instances libeled mo Chancellor of State, and that, therefore, they do not feel authorized to interfere on my behalf with the Saxon Government. In the meantime tho order for my expulsion was made peremptory yesterday, and one week’s time wae given mo to leave. 1 have again written to Mr Bancroft, as he promised to see Mr. Von Noatritz, tho Saxon representative at the Court of Berlin, Law cr no law, I suppose I will have te leave. lum cited to appear at Hamburg to-morrow, for the puriHDse of ausweriug to the charge of libel against tho Chancellor for the article in No. 21 of tha iVefflcciser, entitled “ An Explanation.” An official inquiry ha« also bean set on foot by the Ministry of the Interior refilling to Colony Saxonia and my connection with It. ft four bouts' ex amination the ouict day. So you see things are moving I Ou Nov 12 ho again writes from Loipsio Your favor of the 6th received during my absence in Hamburg to answer to the charge of dueling the Chancellor. The matter has nten put in the of one ol the abbot attorneys. I wth inform you c* the leauit iu due lime. I also received a tetter from Mr. Bancroft, dated Nov. 6, wherein he informs me that he had seen Mr. Von Noatritz (representative of the Saxon Government at the Court of Berlin), who ex pressed his readiness to bring the matter before hia Government for further consideration, and hopes you may encounter no immediate (liaiurbnuce. In the meantime I have received a written order from the jHillce or dering me to leave leipsic positively on Monday next. I can, for the present, go into any other part of Ger many, but of course must expect to be expelled in course of time from any of the State*. 1 think, however, Hamburg wi.l no tho safest, as that city has quiie ft financial interest in the emigration busi ness. Another letter ia dated from Weimar on tho 26th of November: Mr. Bancroft writes mo as follows: ** Nov. 05.—1 regret very much tho decided mea sures which have been adopted, the more so as tho Legation is not able to prevent their taking effect.'* Tnat virtually doses to me the whole of Germany, for, as soon as I locate iu one of the smaller States, tue order will follow me. It strike* mo that, under the treaty of 1828, a fair chance might have been offered me in the Kingdom of Prmsia. These arbitrary measures on tho part of the Sax on Government have caused considerable excite ment among emigration agents iu ali parts of tho German Empire. Tnia may bo an individual case iu Saxony, and the Saxon Government has, perhaps, some cause of compioiut. Last spring a colony of several thousand i Saxons were m duced to emigrate to Lako Superior County, Michigan, which was represented as being a good farming country. It appears mat tho Saxon coiouy wrote homo to the Saxon Government, complaining that they had beeu deceived as to tho character of the land. Tho Saxon Govern ment thinks that Mr, Allardt bad something to do »vith this affair. Ho, however, acmes this charge. Ho is aa present corresponding with tiro State Department ou the matter. slr. ITlotJcy. Mr. Smalley writes from London as follows, concerning tho state of Mr. Motley’s health and hia literary labors: “Mr. Motley has again been in London for a week, on his return from hia round of visits in tbe north of England and Scotland. Ilis health is by no means so com pletely restored as he aud his physicians hoped aud expected. Ho is better, but still far from well. Tho nervous disorder from which bo suf fers is not, save Sir William Gull, paralysis, nor does it resemble paralysis except in some exter nal features. It is rather, to use his phrase, a super-excitation of tho nerves rather than a pa raiveis, and is due, no doubt, to such causes as sometimes produce the otjer malady. # Ever since Hi. Motley was driven from the Ministry in cir cumstances which I presume even the President now regrets, ho has suffered in tbe way proud aud sensitive men always suffer under an indig nity. It has worn on him. Unintermitted lit erary toil, though a relief in many ways, has helped to impair his strength. Ou his last Look, * John of Barnoveld/which will ho out in a few days, Mr. Motley has spent aa much labor in proportion as on tho rest of the series of great historical works of which it forms a part. It will prove, I believe, no unworthy companion to its predecessors. But, tuough bo will not admit it 3lr. Motley has uuaoiibtcdly worked too bard. Ho says be does not think ho ever did more than bis fair share. There aro some of us who would not have cared to exchange with him. though busy in exacting professions, and though Mr. Motley might always have led. had he chosen, a lire of elegant leisure. Mentally, there is no sign of any injury. The doctors, as a precaution, forbid their patient to indulgfe in bard study. But there is just the same clear ness and and activity of mind as ever. This week Mr. Motley has gone down into Dorscteh re on a visit to his daughter, fie returns in ten days or so to London, and will shortly after go to Cannes for the winter.’* An exciting- Kchglous Connell, y?io YorC Correspondence of the Doston Journal One of the most exciting religious assemblies that has gathered within a quarter of a century was held in Brooklyn last week. I have seen exciting political gatherings in Tammany Hall, in tho ward meetings of the Bloody Sixth, and among the roughs of tho city, but I never saw anything that iu intensity of feeling exceeded tho meeting referred to. A new Baptist church was to be reorganized and numbered among the sisterhood oi ibe Brooklyn churches. Tho church was all right. The Articles of Faith were orthodox accoidiug to the standard, which standard was that adopted by tbe Kew Hampshire churches many years ago. I*oc so the pastor. Dr. Jefferies, of Cincinnati, was called to the new charge, and accepted the same. He was supposed to be tinctured with fee leaven of Open Communion. It was known this question would come up at the recognition of the church. A crowd was in at tendance. Nobody was disappointed. On the reading of the articles the question was put dis tinctly to Dr. Jefferies, whether he believed that baptism was a pre-requisite to the communion. He declined to answer tho question. With tho question and the declination came the confusion. A pastor of one of tho Brooklyn churches, well known in Boston, took the lead. He demanded a categorical answer, yes or no, to tho ques tion whether baptism mast precede tho com munion. A personal encounter followed. The pastor undertook to state private conversations. Dr. Jefferies replied by supplementing the con versation referred to. The pastor had said that there could bo no revival in a Baptist church as long as tho ‘‘Devil of Open Communion was in it.” “Ho would to God that overv Open Communloniat would leave his church, for not ouo was worth shucks." Tho pastor denied having used any such language, and the lio was bandied back and forth. Tho pastor was ordered to take his seat, and, on his refusal to do so, the Council voted that ho should subside. The audience became excited to a white heat. Men and women got up on to tho benches, hissed, and hollowed, But him outi” “Pothim out of the denomination!” with other encouraging cries. Jefferies refused to yield the point; denied tho right of the Coun cil to put tho question; declared he was as sound a Baptist as ho had ooeo for twenty-five years; but if being a Baptist was brutality to all who differed from him; if the test of soundness was subserviency to a bigoted man, who proposed to make himself Pope, then ho should decline the new departure. Tho thing simmered down : bands wore shaken; the church was recognized, and a bre&k avoided. HE WAD A GOOD TIME. How Francis Ccorjrc, Who Was Hot tiic Sou of a Lord, t'iayed it Upon Good Society. From the Phxiadclvhia Telegram. . We pave our readers on Saturday afternoon tho main facts connected with the career and arrest of Francis George Godolphin Massey, who played such a conspicuous role at Capo May last cummer. There are some other particulars which wo were then prevented from stating for want of time. Massey, when there was no doubt left that ho was arrested, become com municative, aud conversed freely with our re porter, as follows: “Frank, in tho twelvemonth yon were in tho United States, how much money do you imagine you obtained by misrepresentation ?” “ I should think no less than §20,000, at least $15,000 of which I secured while I was at Capo May.” “Did yon live well at tho latter place ?” “ Kcpbrt,” said ho, looking up, “ speaks suffi ciently oq that point. 1 stopped at Congress Hall, and lived as beet I knew how, with tho means at my disposal.” “And the horses ?” *♦ Fine os ever man drove behind. There wasn't a man at the place I couldn’t beep in my d-ist whenever 1 desired." Then, after a sigh, “But it was only a fleeting show.” “And iho ladies? Of course yon enjoyed their company? You look tho pink of a lady’s man.” “ Turned tho heads of a good many. I could tell you the names of sbmo who live m Philadel phia, two of whom live in tho bright anticipa tion cf being my wives, Alas for them—alas for me! " “ Did you have diamonds ? ” “ Yes, when at the Capo,—got these, of course, os 1 got everj'thing else, oa tick. It would surprise you to know how easily 1 obtained money.” *• To what do von attribute this facility ? ” “To tho fact that all believed me the sod of a nobleman, and the son of a nobleman is just the person to turn tho bead of &u American girl, as well as that of many an American shop keeper, who has in his mind’s eye profitable patronage.” “ You did not stand upon the order of your going when you left the icaort ? ” “Fortunately, no; because the fabric 1 bad erected was just toppling. The crash came just aa I decamped. I slipped up to Philadelphia in the night time, carrying with mo considerable jewelry, come lino clothes, etc., and was com pelled to keep low, for if I hadn’t my Capo May creditors would have kept up a lively buzzing about my care. I stayed hero a short time, exhausting all my cash, and thou I deemed it beat to go to Europe. Being redneed pictty low, I took passage in tbo ship Elizabeth and Catherine, and actually worked my passage to Dunkirk, and piocceded thence to Paris, where I was compelled to sell the last relic of my former greatness, a fine soli taire diamond. This cost over ss* : o. and I was compelled to sacrifice it for 280 francs. Even with this amount, setting a limit to my prodigality which annoyed mo, I lived as lavishly as possible, and then when the few days of princely living were ended, I departed from Pans as silently and os bonelossly destitute as a pauper. I reached London at lost, and there fell into a fat thing again—this fat thing being tho Quaker Assembly. Having lived in Mr. Cope’s family for almost a year, I cou’d eaeily put on tho airs and use tho dialect of & Quaker. I found no difficulty in making the members believe that I was Mr.’Cope’s son, and they paid all mv expenses,—and 1 did not limit them.— looking for their reimbursement when I returned to my pseudo-father’s homestead.” Ho stopped suddenly and asked, “How did they find out that I was coming in this vessel?” “’it was cabled over.” “ I know; but who in could have known it on ibis side of tho water ? lam sure thev did not suspect it on tho other side. Confound it. why did not I take any other vessel than this ? Whv did I not work my passage over in a ship ? Fool that I was, why did I come at all ?” “ Yon ought to have gone ashore at the break water.” He nibbed his hands, and walked nervously about, aud then stopped. “S:> I would, sol would, if I had oven suspected that an officer was waiting for mo. But I aid not, though common sense should have told me that I could not como here safely, after the course I had mu.” Then came a pounding at tho door. It wan opened, and a steerage-passenger came ia, pointing at Massey, and saying, “ Como, my boy, I want a woid with you.” “Not now, not now/’ exclaimed Massey, in a whis| er, to tho officer, and tho urgent passenger was asked out. “ I don’t want to see him. He loaned mo £ll. Tho news of my arrest must be all through tho ship by this time. Yes, theio’s the steward’s voice. I owe him £1 and more, and there’s that old fool that sold mo the linnet.” “What linnet?” “ A fine little bird I bought of him ou an ‘I. O. U.’ and gave it to the stewardess of the boat. Good heavens I” ho exclaimed, “that such a scene as this should bo tho beginning of tho end!” “ How was it yon obtained such a credit on the boat ?” “ They all believed that 1 wras Frank Cope— Caleb Cope’s sou. They befieved that I hud a magnificent estate m Chester County, called Copeland, where one of the smallest items of my wealth was 400 mrlking-cowal I had invited them all to the Continental Hotel to partake of a grand bauquct&t my expense, the supper to be ready at 6 o’clock. Each man of whom I had borrowed was to find beneath his plate twice (he sum in greenbacks I had bor rowed of him! Alas! this delightful air-castle is knocked into a cocked Int i That infernal detective!” i “ Would it have been so knocked if you had not been arrested ?” “ I think |r would ” —be smiled aa ho said this— “ I intended to start to New York with tho engineer as -soon as the vessel reached her wharf.” While this conversation took place there was a buzz of discontented voices U[.ou the other s.do of tbe door. and.whenever the loiter was opened, tho apciture was filled with frowning faces and glistening eyes. When tho door closed again there came a'timid knock. It was a young and pretty woman, Ellen , who had taken passage in the steerage. Her face was as white as snow, and in the centre of each cheek was a touch of carmine. “ Frank,” she whispered. “No, Ellen, I can’t see you. Good-bye!” and the door was closed upon her, too. The young adventurer put bis hand to his face and remained silent for some time. Then he simply said: “I promised to marry her. She was too good a girl for such a Cagliostro aa I.” As the vessel neared the wharf ho asked tho -letectivo where he was to be taken. “To West Chester.” “ The devil I” be responded. •* Couldw’t you take me somewhere else ? Tnere isn't a man or woman there who docs not know* me.” , When ho found there was no alternative ho said, in a whining voice. “ The wortt is ' ome » and then brightening up, “ I’ve eaten cake, and gorged myself with stolen sweet- 3 * but I can stand tho pain. They will find I 0411 * 3e bravo under adversity.” When landed, he was placed in a carnage an., driven to the Central Station, and thence to the West Chester depot. Arrived in VVest Chestei% ho was taken before a Justice of the Peace and committed in default of $2,000 bail, the charge of obtaining S3O under false pretences. This is only one of a hundred charges that mil pour in upon him. A COMING INVESTIGATION. Employment of Public Servants and Itloney for Private Interests* TVashiiijlnn Diroatch to the Xew York Herald, Manifest improprieties in tbo manner of pro viding help at the White House having called for investigation, which is to receive the serious attention of Congress, by a resolution calling for information from the Secretary of War, u will first bo inquired by what authority enlisted men, whose names are on the rolls of the army, are serving there in menial capacities, aod the public will want to know who is responsible for this violation of official integrity, not to say of tbo law. It may bo asked, with some uerti nenco, whether men have been employed there in various duties from that of messen ger to cook, and from that of bouse ser vant to barber, who draw their pay, ranking as Sergeants and as high as Captain/ Rumor baa it mat, when these former were placed in the Executive Mansion, they w ere ranked as pri vates ; but, the pay not being sufficient, in their own estimation and that of their employer, they were promoted by the Secretary of War, on the recommendation of their employer, to bo Sergeants, so as thus to be enabled to draw in creased pay for their important and useful call ings. And in tbo -case of the cook, as every oneknotfs, no sccond-claes hotel here can se cure the services ol a good French or German cook at a rate of wages less than from SIOO to $175 per month. Of course, the pay of Sergeant would never meet tbo re quirements of the august functionary who performs the delicate task of catering to the re fined and sensitive epicurean palates of the ''famiUe royalc ,” and bo it is said this individual niuct bo appointed to the rank of Captain, with pay proper, so as to be enabled to manage his •fUkia. roixs, and patisserie." The Secretary of War will have ample opportu nity to explain those unhandsome travesties of the war god, which can only be considerately re garded by a very liberal adaptation of tbo memorable saying, Peace hath her victories not loss renowned than war." A companion evil to this existed for some time in the army daring the early part of‘ the war, where by v-fficcrs who wore allowed rations and pay for servants whom they never * employed, but in lieu thereof had soldiers detailed from a company on the rolls of. whicn they were paid, andueuce these gallant officers pocketed the funds and Uncle Sam paid for services which ho did not receive. Cut the time came when some honest, fair-minded men saw this glaring and increasing fraud, whereupon dne repi escala tions were made, after corresponding Investiga tions. to the War Department, and orders wore issued that thenceforth, if any officer drew pay for servant and rations, he must have such ser vant in actual cmplov for the time stated. Thus t-e army was pxrgou of this rascality. Kindred with this misapplication of the service of those in Government employ is the prevailing custom among the officials to have the messengers attend at their houses, make op bedding, black shoes, wait on table, and do chores generally for which the Government is made to pay. How many more impoitaut do mestic duties are thus performed it la impossible to tell. The Committee, which is to be ap pointed, will commence with the War and Treas ury Departments after it is through with tb© White lioute, and, as they progress, overwhelm ing evidence may bo adduced which will apply to similar dishonest practices in other bureaus. The boreos and livery, as well as the vehicles, of mauv Rej.ubiican patriots will bear a like scrutiny, and, by the time the Committee has concluded us investigation, Congress will find where a large amount of money is equandeied, and bow they can practically get down to economical principles without bowling and doing, as tbo miserly and weak ccTarer did, “ saving at the spigot and wasting at the bung."

In this connection it may be remarked that, nowadays. 3 cents worth of gum will not last a school-hoy half a day, whereas it would formerly give his teacher a’subject for conversation for a week. . —Taking the trades together, the New York Times thinks the number of skilled workmen now cut of work in tnat city may be some *4,000 in excess of the number similarly situated, last Now Year’s day; not very much more.

Sbe is tho first Hindoo lady who has broken through tho bar riers of prejudice and caste in order to visit England. A Peculiar People# The Cologne Gazette not long since gave an account of some of the peculiar customs and m-aecs of the natives of the African Gold Coast. It treats that all the men born on a certain day of the w eek are called by tbc masculine appella tion of that d-y, and all the women by the femi nine name for the day. Thus. all girls borne on Sunday are named Acona-rack. all /fcoya bo ™ ° n Sonday are named Anasaio; girls bom on Mon- day are named Adjnah; "boys are named Cndjo. Tho choice of names being tbos Tery limited, nicknames are much in vogue. So a fat man born on Monday is not called simply Cudie, bat Cadjo Kutumsu. An appalling custom of these natives is their habit of pawning their sons and daughters and wives, with very much the same indifference as that with which a German student would pledge his watch. A woman who has been pledged be comes the absolute slave of the person to whom she is pawned. When a pledged person dies the body is fastened to tho bough of a tree, high in the air, beyond tho reach of animals. The native tribes behevo in the immortality of the soul, but they think the dead one cannot commence bis wanderings to the eternal realms until hi 0 mortal remains have been consigned to earth. For this reason the relatives make every effort to redeem the body of a pawned person as soon as possible after death. The Fantoes rejoice in the posses sion of two devils—Abousam. who presides over the souls of the wicked in tho next world, and Sasabousam, a largo, red-colored, long-haired devil, who rules on earth. The latter resides in tho deep ravine of a gloomy forest, and near a gigantic mulberry tree. The mortality among the children on the Gold Coast is very great. This is partly duo to the sudden changes in temperature, and partly to the early loss of milk by mothers, who, in lieu thereof, nourish their children with a liquid called lanki. which is very apt to cause imlam matfon of the bowels.
