Collingwood Harbor Employ- ment for the Poor. Presbyyterian Temporalities Court- ney—Poultry. Special Dispatch to Tut Tribune. Ottawa, Dec. 2L—The mission of Mr. For syth, Superintendent of the Money-Order De partment, to Washington, Is said to be for the purpose of studying the money-order system adopted in the neighboring Republic. A few weeks ago, gentlemen from Washington were here on a similar service. The Government intends to reduce the salaries of Civil-Service officials by 10 per cent. A deputation, consisting of CoL Cumberland, Mr. Barlow Cumberland of the Northern Rail car, the Mayor of Collingwood, and several members of Parliament, waited upon the Minis ter of Public Works, and urged the necessity of ’deepening Collingwood Harbor bv four feet, — making sixteen feet in all, —and of improve ments in tbc breakwater lately constructed. It was explained that these improvements were necessary to meet the increased volume of trade passing through Collingwood for Lake Superior and Western districts. The Minister of Public Works promised to give the matter bis earliest consideration. A telegram from Washington says that Dr. Young, who was formerly Chief of the Bureau of Statistics at Washington, has accepted a prominent position in the Dominion Statistical Bureau. Special Dispatch to The Tribune. Montreal, Dec. 2L—Employment for the poor this winter will be provided in the shape of breaking Macadam stone for the streets, if tne Hoad Committee obtain wbat they are ask ing for, namely: an advance of §30,000 from their next year’s appropriations for the purchase of stone. The Temporalities Board of the Presbyterian Church id Canada,, of which the Rev. Dr. Jen kins is President, was some time. ago legally assailed, —in the interest ot the remnants of congregation, which did not fall in with the union in which the present Presbyterian Church in Canada had its origin,—by the Rev. Ronert Dobie, at whose instance an injunction was laid on a certain fund of the former Presby terian Church of Canada in connection with the Church of Scotland, which had passed into the hands of the Temporalities Board of the new Church, upon which the ministers of the old Church had claims in part payraenJLof their salaries. The ministers who did not fall in with the union were*, by the agreement then come to, secured their share of this fund for life; but these held that the great body of the Church had by the union ceased to have any claims upon it, and claimed the whole for themselves, and took suit to ob tain the same. The case reached the. Court of Appeals, and has there been dismissed, on the ground ihat the security for costs given by Mr. Dobie was not furnished in the proper manner according to law. This brings the whole matter to a conclusion, and further proceedings would have to commence de noto. Special Dispatch to The Tribune. Toeosto, Dec. 21. — Mr. E. B. Webster. Courtney’s principal backer in the Lacblne race*, is here. In a chat with a . reporter, be said Courtney is disgusted with the hard things that have been said of him, has given away his boat, and declared he will row no more. Mr. Webster thinks, however, that this will pass away under the footbialrSulinenee of time, and'that next sea son Courtney may take part iu several regattas, and probably, later on, in a match or two, if he can get a worthy opponent. There is no chance oi Courtney and llanLtn coming together again, —at least not till laic in the season. Mr. Webster said there was a sort of tacit understand ing that Courtney was to receive a couple of thousand dollars for rowing at Montreal; but no papers were signed, and the money was not paid, lie states that the coming aspirants for the championship are G. W. Lee, of Newark, now amateur champion, and M. F. Davis, of Portland.' Tae latter nc regards as a wonderful sculler. Lee will not challenge Haulan right off, but will first try some second-rank professionals.

Now York Banks Changing: Their Tunc, Special Dispatch to Hit Tribune. New York, Dec. 21.—The position assumed by the self-constituted Clearing-House Commit fee which visited Washington, and after a con ference with Secretary Sherman announced that Hie remonetized silver dollar would only be re ceived on deposit for return in kind, seems likc to be overturned by the action of the banks themselves. While two or three banks have already announced to depositors that sliver will only be received upon that condition, the Presi dent of a prominent bank said this morning: **We shall issue no such notice, and too Presi dents of other banks have reached the same oodosion. The only banks which will issue Mich notice are those identified with the pre cipitate action of the Clearing-House, and arc obliged to carry out their plan as a matter of consistency. Their action was simply the result of prejudice, and had no reasonable basis for it. If all the new dollars which have been coined, dr likely to be coined during Secretary Sher man’s administration, were thrown into New York at once, they would hardly be sufficient la amount to embarrass the banks.” A prominent Wall street broker says the Clearing-House Is ashamed of its action, and most of the banks trill take legal-tender silver Without’regard to their notices to depositors. • President Thompson, of the Chase National *hd Clearing-House Hank, was found in com pany with President Neal, of the Harvey Coun ty Bank, Kansas, and asked if his bank would take silver deposits unconditionally. He re plied: ‘‘How can we help it ? Silver is a legal tender. Suppose, in the course of exchange, Mr. Neal should send me SI,OOO in daddy, what *m Ito do? Violate the law and at the same lime lose a customer? No; I shouldn’t do it. fshonid accept the deposit, and be glad to get Mr.N ea ]_‘‘And if his or some other New l ork bank were not willing to carry our ci- J“*®gc,.we have plenty ol bids lor business Boston, Chicago, and St. Louis. If New lore will not candle our money on the same J**®* as other cities, our money and business wiil go elsewhere. We do not care particularly lo send to New York.” ;‘‘Vou can see/Usaid Mr. Thompson, “it is only a matter of self-interest. The banks of Aew York will always serve their own interests, even if they have to sacrifice their theories. They have done that before, and will again. We shall not sacrifice our busiucss even if they do.” THE INDIANS. San Francisco, Cal., Dec. 21.—A Portland dispatch says Gov. Ferry, of Washington Terri* tory, has been closeted with Gen. Howard in that city considering: the alarming state of affairs in the eastern part of the Territory and the suspicious attitude of Chief Moses and his band. Steps have been taken to secure the safety of the settlers. Two companies of in fantry and two of cavalry iyill be dispatched to tbc Kittitas Valley as soon as possible. A post will be established near Eliensburg. Camp Har ney will be abandoned, and the troops there stationed at the new post.

The advent of the genuine winter weather of of tbc past week caused quite a run on the elegant stock of fine furs at A. Bishop & Co.’s, corner State aud Monroe streets. Those superb seal sacoucs, of which this firm makes a spec ialty, find wonderful favor with the ladies, and yesterday the store was fairly crowded with buyers.' The stock of robes aud gentlemen’s fine fur caps and driving-gloves also came in for their share of purchasers, and if the supply hud not been one of the most extensive in the West, It would certainly have been exhausted long before evening. The superior quality of the goods, and the low prices at which they are sold account for the popularity of this reliable bouse. CURIOSITY GRATIFIED.

Weeks «fc Potteh— Gsnikmen : To that I am grateful, is only a poor expression of my feelings, but it is the best word 1 can use, for 1 feel it in every sense of the word. I have been a great sufferer with skin diseases for the last twelve (12) years. My bean and face being covered with sores, 1 could not rest with the burning heat and itching of the parts affected, and was confined to my house for weeks at a lime. My disease has been called Eczema, of a most aggravated type, bv many physicians, but I douot if ever fully understood by any of .them. It was mure liken combination of several skin humors. 1 have spent much mouey seeking a cure, and in 13G71 went to Europe, and consulted some of the best physicians in Lonaon. I received temporary relief only, for in the spring U would break out again as bad as ever. When I came back to Boston, I was told by many friends that Dr, (whoso reputation for the cure of those diseases was of the highest order) conld cure me. 1 waited on the Doctor; he prescribed for me. I followed his advice for six months, and I can «afely say, without any improvement. 1 tried other phy sicians, and among them Dr. , of East Boston,- and Dr. , of city proper, but all to no purpose. They did me no gooa; their remedies were so inef fectual tbac at no time did 1 feel that a cure would result from them. 1 have swallowed five hundred arsenic pills. 5-20 grain, and taken bottle after bottle of internal rem edies, beside all the external applications I have used, but the effect was the same. I became satis fied that I could not be cured, but. might be Kept from getting worse. Now. about three months ago, Mr. Meehan, a gentleman well known to Boston people, called my attention to your Cpticcua, ami promised wonder ful results If 1 would only make, atrial, lie told me of his own experience with it, and ao persever ed on me that 1 went with him to a drug store and bought two large boxes of CtmcruA, and some Soap, and commenced to use it according to the di rections. There was so much humor lodged with in the skin.'that as soon as I commenced Ibe use of Cuticitra it came to the surface and festered, until vast quantities had come out .and greatly in tensified my sufferings for about two weeks. But I aid not miud this, as I felt that 1 was going to get rid of the humor when I saw it coming to (he sur face in such large quantities. After the first two or three weeks’ use of this remedy. I was greatly encouraged by a gradual lessening of the inflam mation of a ntimber of painful sores. 1 carefully, faithfully, and cheerfully followed the direc tions to the letter, feeling each week nearer a cure, until at the present moment, three months’ use of Cuticuua, and twelve years of as constant suffering as was ever endured. 1 can say that I am cured, and pronounce my case the most remarKable on record. 1 have been so etaled ■ with mv success that 1 have stopped men on the street who were afflicted,' and told them to get the Cuticura and it would cure them. This is why I am so grateful to you. tor I believe It to be the best and greatest discovery of the age; and that it will cure all who arc sneerin'; with these diseases. 1 tray add that I took no internal medicine but the Cuticcua Resolvent.

I farther certify that I have shaved the said Taylor, whenever it has been pos sible to do so, for the last five years, and during this lime there was no abatement in the severity of the disease, or approach to a cure, —although, to my Knowledge, constantly under medical treat ment,—until he began the' use of the Cuticnra and Cuticura Resolvent, which have effected, in the short space of three months, a perfect cure.

Have had the best doctors our vicinity affords; have taken at least twenty-fire bottles of v* blood simps ” have drank of several mineral springs, all to no purpose, and when your Cuticura was ad vertised, my father sent for a box, and using It. it brought the humor on the surface, which gradually fell off, until now my skin is as smooth as any, and with but a very little humor on it which is gradu ally disappearing. I thank yon most kindly fortbc pains you took in sending a box of Cuticura, and it has not only helped me. but a f.icnd also. I agree with you that skin diseases cannot be cured by “blood purifier?,” fbr 1 have had a fair chance to test tnem. Respectfully yours, * G , Maes., June2b, 1878.

Scald Head on a Child Messrs. Weeks k, Potter—Dear Sirs: It affords me great pleasure to testify to tbe remarkable heal ing and curative effect of your Cuticura on my child's head. He had an affection similar to Scald Head, which covered the entire scalp with one mass of running sores. The itching was very severe, causing him to scratch it until it bled. For nine teen months be had to wear an oilskin cap. After five applications of Cuticura, we were able to comb his hair, and. about one box cured him. This is simply remarkable, ns he received the prescriptions of two physicians of high standing in our city with out any apparent benefit, and was under various forms of treatment for nearly one year and a half, lam, gentlemen, yours very truly, CALVIN W.

Fred Rohrer, Esq., Cashier Stock Growers 1 Na tional Bank, Pueblo, Colorado, writes; “I am so well pleased with its effects on my baby that I can not afford to be without it in my house. It is a wonderful cure and is bound to become very popu lar as soon as its virtues arc known to the masses. '' .1. S. Weeks, Esq., Town Treasurer St. Albans, Vt., says in a letter dated Mey4B: ** It wonts to a charm on my baby's face and ucad. Cured the bead entirely, and has nearly cleaned the face of sores.

W*c have tried most everything, and at last have used about n box of Cuticura, and she is almost a i cw child, and we feel very happy.’ 1 Caution.— lf possible, use thc’CuTictmA Soap. A Pure Skin and Toilet Soap, appropriately named after the great remedy from which it draws its.curative properties, is of a delicate natural green color, showing its wholesome vegetable origin. Its emollient, soothing, and healing ac tion is the same as Cuticura, only in a modified form. While it cannot take the place of the latter in the treatment of obstinate skin and scald affec tions, it may ably assist it at every stage and is positively indispensable in ail cases, since pure soap in the treatment of cutaneous diseases is a tlailv, almost hourly necessity. Its medicinal in gredients arc so refined and minfled of gross or in ert matter tliat they are known to be present only by their grand curative effects, while its fragrance, unsurpassed by the finest Parisian products, places It foremost among toe finest toilet soaps yet pro duced. Added to its many attractions is the low price at which it is supplied to all. It is in every respect a pleasing contrast to the filthy products prepared from the refuse of sinks, vats, hotels, hospitals, and rendering-houses, rceklmr with putrescence and animal parasites, and the* germs of contagious diseases, and innocently labeled 4 'skin soap. 11 In recommending it as an assistant to Cuticura, as well as for tbe preservation of the skin of infants, of gentlemen who shave, and those who desire a fresh una wholesome skin aud scalp, for washing ulcers and old sores, for allaying the irritation of rash, prickly heat, and otner minor cutaneous affections, as well as for all the pur poses of an elegant toilet, hath, and nurscrv soap, it has no equal in tbe world.
