Paris was slattlod out ol Rb apathy tbia After

the very midst of tbo Bourse. Tho nows lias
proved to bo true. It appears that shortly utter
2 o’clock, whan business was at it* height, one
M. Logrand, an engineer, was seen standing
upon tbo stepa of tbo Bourse. Grouping a thick
stick, ho shortly after went up to M. Do Gas, a
well-known banker, aud after somo recrimi

Logrand struck tbo other several
wevoro blows over tho back and bead.
M. Da Gae at onco drew a revolver from liia
pocket, am), whilu his assailant Hod, fired threu
consecutive times without effect. M. Do Ga*.
however, started in pursuit, and, catching up
with the fugitive, again fired, wounding M.’ Le
gtaod on tho loft check with two bulls, which
entered just under tho eye and passed out clobo
by the templo. M. Do Ga-t was at ouoo arrested
bv tho police, and tbo wounded mau was carried
to a chemist's shop in the lluo Fovdcau. where
bis wounds wore prououncodnot to ho danger
ous. It is said that tho cause of this atranco
affair partakes more of a domestic than of a
financial nature. For several mouths past MSI.
De Gas aud Logrand have boon at
daggers drawn, and a duel was to have been
fought between them, It is perhaps needless to
say that M. De Gas is still in custody. M. Lo
grand was taken homo in a carnage immediately
alter having bis wounds tireesed. Of tbo three
shots which ’ ore tired without reaching M. De
grand, ono broke tho window of Pivot's shop,
lust opposite tho Bourse; another is said to
have lodged in the log of an old commission*
naire, and the third struck 100 chest of a lank
moHsongor, who was coming out of tho lino
Vivienne, but luckily its passage was slopped by
a (hick portfolio. U. De Gas is said to have

FINANCIAL CONDITION OP THE DANK OF CAUFOB

San Franeiafo Chronicle, ttpt. ].
Tbo following is said to bo vt-xv nearly the
financial condition of Uio bault: Nominal assets.
$20,000,000 ; leliablo assets, sH.oun,ooo ; in
debtedness, $10,000,000 5 com in vault*, *-*50,-
000 ; guaranty luud (neatly all now pledged),
frutu *5,000,000 to SIO,UOU,OiiO. The guaranty
fund is all to be paid within twelve months irora
date. A certain amount of heroism baa been
shown by tbo Directors, wbo are 1 lodging tbetr
foitunoa aud tbeir sacred honor to tbo resuscita
tion of tbo institution with which they have eu
long boon associated. Mr. Sharon la the creditor
of the bank to the extent of $1,200,000. ilu
subscribes $1,000,000 to toe guaranty fund. I>.
O. Mill* saDscribcs $1,000,000. Michael Reese
elves a large amount. Thomas Dell and John O.
Karl each subscribe large sums. James It.
Keene is s large contributor to the fund. There
will ho no ditlicultv in obtaining tbo
amount needed. There is the best feeling
among stockuoldera or tbo hank in San I'rancia
co aud elsewhere. All that will bo asked of the
outside public is to balouioot and show a little
time for recuperation, with the assurance that
they mil ail eventually he paid to the last dollar.
It is understood that large depositors have con
sented to foiego their claims for the present.
One of tbo largest is E. J. IJaldwin, who was a
depositor to too extent of $1,“0J.0(K). It is said
that the payment of the S2gU,IWO doe Flood A
OTlriou on deposit has been arranged fur. Tno
report that John A. lloscufcldl has lost *3OO.O'XI
is nut true, lie had that amount on deposit,
tut it has boou paid. It is reported mat James
W. Hurling bonowod $1,001),000 for Mr. Ilalstou
on bank stock.
It la expected that the bank will open its doom
In about a week. When it dues no, it will be not
only to go into gradual licjuiJailou, but toc&try
on the banking business m a regular way as be
fore. D. 0. Mills will probably be the President.
New Yoiik, Bept. o.—The Keening Post says s
“ The trade with the South is opening better
than was calculated. A good business was ex
pected with tho West, and there in no disappoint
moot. Trade from NowYoik with the .Middle
and Eastern Stales is small, as it was ex
pected it would bo, because of the depression in
the manufacturing Interests. With the agi {cul
tural sections nourishing, however, it is but a
stop to improvement m manufacturing. Thoro
is the same caution and prudence manifested in
trade this season that thoro has been since tho
name, and it is sate to assume time whatever
business is doue will do done on a safe basis.”
IlorrAto, N. Y., Sept. U.-Tlio Now York and
Erie Hank, of which tho late John S. Gannon
was President, did not open its duora this morn

through outside speculations is the cause. 'lho

Uncial bupalih to ihi Cmeago Tnbuut,
Duki alo. N. Y., Sept. o.—The New York and
Erie Hank closed its doors ibis morning. This
is one of our 01a institutions, and its failure is
a surprise to the public, though nut tu the
knowing ones. The recent death of John S.
Gansou, who was President and manager of Iho
bank, bas doubtless precipitated matters. Too
Directors left tbu business entirely in iho bauds
of tho President, and now Know hltlo of its
affairs. Home say it is a disastrous failure;
others that the assets will piobably pay
all liabilities. The assets are composed
largely of real estate, and leported to
include over 8100,000 against the estate of John

ably upon tbe proposition, but it is doubt-
ful if the Commissioners accept, as they
probably hare no authority to do so.
Meantime the horrible condition of tho arcane
prows worse, and is rapidly driving business to
sido streets.
The total amount of legal-lenders and Nation
al I3auk notes canceled and retired from

round numbers, $25,000,000, nearly €lB,-
000,000 being tbe voluntary surrender of

of June 20, 1871. The indications ere that the
