Representatives were present from all the while-lead manufactories in the country except three. Gen. Sheridan stated to a reporter of Tub 'lThdune yesterday that the fears of a general Indian uprising In Dio summer were almost wholly without foundation. Ho character izes Sitting Bull ns a petty chief without influence, and greatly overrat ed as - a warrior. People, ho ears, persist in thinking Silting Bull a dangerous character, when the facts aru Hint he Is not to be feared nt nil. The stories ot coming trouble on the frontier arc, according to the General, ' mere newspaper talk Inspired hr Interested parlies who hone to turn a dishonest penny in cose of an Indian war. The transferred of two , regiments in thu ordinary routine furnished n basis for most of tho prophecies. While noth ing can bo definitely predicted ‘‘until tiic grass comes up,” Qcn. Sheridan is strongly of opinion that there is no more danger this vear than at any time past. r ilic regular weekly meeting of the Executive Committed of the Carnival of Authors was held in Parlor O of the Palmer House yestordov morning, Mrs. G.

Met dames Clark, Corse, and Chesbrongh were dele gated with the auty of limllng gentlemen to take charge of the box-olllces at the dour. Same discussion followed as to Mr. Pentecost’s rather uncharitable remarks In regard to the carnival, and his condemnation of the ladles of Chicago for engaging In this good worn In pref erence to going to hear him preach. The ladles were unanimous hi believing ihni the evangelist was either mistaken or prejudiced. After pass ing a resolution that no tobacco in any tunu should ho sold during the Carnival, the meeting adjourned for one week. A culled meeting of \ho ladies connected with the Illinois Industrial School for Girls was bold at the parlor of thu Woodruff House yesterday, to discuss plans for thu best Interests of thu school, as well as to consider further arrange ments lor tho perfecting tho programme to he carried out at the authors’ carnival, this Institu tion being one of tho six charities represented In that entertainment. The arrangements for tho representation of the works of the particu lar authors assigned to tbU Association were reported as progressing In a most satisfactory manner, and an unrivaled success was predicted for tho carnival, as It was understood that this Association outy represented tho splen did results of the eflorts of all tho oilier charities associated In thu work. Additional members were added to several committees, as the magnitude of thu work U hourly being more fully appreciated tv all. A letter from Mr. Frank I*. Pease, Gen eral Director, was reported, In which he stated that ho shall arrive In Chicago April 1 with three.or four car-loads of appurtenances, con sisting of thu vutious buildings to be erected wilblu the Exposition Building,—the Alhambra, Daronlal Hall, Cave of Monto Christo, Flora’s Temple, and Swiss Cottage, tho Dwelling of the Fairies of Lillput Land, Boats (or thu Fairy Lake, etc., and a host of materia) with which to delineate the splendors of thu Author’s Car nival. The work of (be Soliciting Committee Is now to begin, and It is hoped that their efforts will meet with success in articles of food aud money, as the needs may bo represented. THE CITY-HALE. There are 3,800 licensed saloons In the city. The license receipts vrere s6o,—something not looked for at this time ol the year. Four cases of diphtheria and two of scarlet fever were reported to thu health authorities. The sewer contractors aro anxious to go to work, and permission will be given by the Do uwracot of Public Works U the present weather continue!!, which will soon take oul the little frost remaining in the around. The Committee on Judiciary will meet at fi p. m. Frldav, and the Committee on Finance at 4 p. m. Monday. The Treasurer’* receipt* wore: Water-Office, $2,569; Comptroller, $223; total, 12,791. lie paid out 523,000. The street, water, and sewerage laborers trill bo paid for two mouths Saturday morning at the Exposition Building. The scrip clerk didn’t pay out n dollar, but he is getting ready for Mav 1, when tho presses win 1)0 started on tho paper for 1870. A permit was issued to IT. R. Packard to erect n two-storr and basement stone-front dwelling, 22x86 feet, at No. 1193 Michigan avenue, to cost SII,OOO. The contractor expects to commence on the pumping works for the Fullerton avenue con duit Monday. Tlio work must be completed June 15, unless tho weather interferes. Specifications are preparing for dredging the river, sewerage cleaning, lumber, paving blocks, etc., and when they are finished proposals fur doing ttic work will bo advertised for. All the employes around the City-Hall re ceived their January and February salaries lu cash. The firemen will bo paid Saturday, mul the police, perhaps, tnu same day, the delay be ing caused by a /allure to send in the pay-rolls. The office of Captain of Detectives, recently created by the Council, Is to be bold by Lieut. McGarigle, who was promoted yesterday. Patrolmen Thomas Traynor, Reuben Slayton, Michael La Bounty, Richard Haley, and Michael Whalen are to be regular detectives after April I. The amendment to the Mayor’s net, which will doubtless soon imsi the Senate, as untended bv the House, so far changes existing laws as to require the concurrence of two-thirds of the Aldermen Instead of a majority before (he Mayor can remove an appointive officer. Here tofore, when the Mayor removed a man, It was final, unless two-thirds of the Count'll disap proved of it. The language of the act would lead one to think that any Mayor could remove for cause only those appointed by himself, but tin* meaning is that ho can drop any officer ap pointed bv himself or bis predecessor if ho have good reason therefor, and twenty-four of the ttilrlv-slz Aldermen say ho may do so. This change in the law will prevent to a great extent the removal of heads of departments, before their terms expire, for purely political reasons. The emergency clause attached to the act by the Senate was stricken oil by the House, mid tho bill sent back In that shape, mid tiic Senate will doubtless say amen. If so, the amendment will net go into effect until July 1. THE COUNT* -BUILDING. To-day in insane day in the County Court, and seven coses will bo tried. Thu Grand Jury.yesterday hoard about twenty jail cases, and returned ton nu-biils. The Collector of the Town of Worth yester day turned over Lis books lo tho County Treas urer.

The room formerly occupied by the Board of Commissioners Is being fitted up by the County Treasurer for receiving taxes. The High Joint Committee on Public Build- lugs and Public Service met yesterday,but trans acted no business, und adjourned for ono week on account of the absence ot Commissioner Burling. The case of Officer Jones, indicted for tho killing of "Ktd” O'Brien last summer, is set for hearing in the Criminal Court to-day, but if thu Stevens case is tried It will scarcely bo reached. The Countv Treasurer yosterdoy sold $55,000 worth of county bonds in denominations of SI,OOO and SSOO. They wero bought by agents for Eastern capitalists. This is the largest sale of bonds that has been made yet. . The Commlttco on Hospitals has set carpen ters at work repairing the roof of the (co-house at tho County Hospital, which was destroyed bv tiro lost week, in order to save the ice, which Is exposed. The repairs are estimated to cost about S4OO. Judge Lawrence, counsel for the Metropolitan West Side Street-Railway Company, yesterday morning made his argument lu the Injunction case of The City vs. the Company, before Judge Williams, in the Criminal Court, und the matter was taken under advisement. Commissioner Loazan says that ho is a Demo crat, but that ho served In thu War of tho Re bellion as a soldier, mid never got a cent of bounty for It cither, and thu verv moment Unit the Democrats In Congress pass bills to pay tho Southerners for damages resulting to them on account ot the War, Just that moment ho Is out, and will become a most ardent Republican. In tho Criminal Court yesterday tho indict ment against John Cannon for assaulting bis mother was stricken from tho docket. The old Indy has succeeded in keeping out of tho way of the officers since tho Indictment of tier duti ful son, and consequently there was no case. There was on exhibition la the court-room a sot of fish scales which would make a lead-ncncU weigh about fifteen pounds. They were said to be the property of Israel Bernstein, who was accused of cheating in weights mid was dis charged. George Ucloschor was tried for the larceny of two cows, mid the Jury was out. Thu oasu of Pete Slovens, wife-killer, Is sot for trial to-day, and will come up this morning in the Criminal Court. It is now pretty well understood that A. 8. Trude, his attorney, will enter a motion for a change of venue, probably upon the ground that thu late sentence of Lamb Ims aroused Hie people to such a stale of preju dice tiiat a Jury caimob be obtained that will give his client u fair mid Imuartiol trial. Pete Stevens was seen hy a reporter yesterdav after noon. but ho would say nothing In regard to the matter. He said he had already talked too much, and his attorney had advised him to keep his mouth shut hereafter. LITTLE TEDS. Five hundred barrels of alcobol were ex* ported from this city yesterday. Tito 4 per cents subscribed for at the Sub* Treasury yesterday amounted to but SBOO. Among Collector Smith’s callers yesterday was Chicago's next Mayor, Mr. A. M. Wright.

Judge IHodcett returned from Indianapolis and will odcu court tills morning, when the criminal calendar will be called mid a batch of putty cases worked off during the day.

Dunk-Examiner Elmer Wusliburue bos actu nil; advanced to such a stage in bis Investiga tion »I thu German National tlmt he is enabled to take Ms stand among the prophets and the sons of the prophets and say—that he will got through with the Job In three weeks. As to i lie showing thus far mode, or the prospective rev elations, ho refuses to bo a prophet either of good or of evil, and quenches the rvpcrtorlul ar dor with the unsatisfying word “wait.” Thu plasterers are at work finishing ono end of thu basement of the new Custom-House,— Chlcago’s temporary Post-Oillcu until thu whole building Is completed and ready fur occupancy. Thu windows are mostly In, doors have been put up, approaches constructed, the plumbers and gas-fitters aro hurrying up their eud of the Job, and It Is expected that everything will bo m readiness for Postmaster Palmer ami Ids largo corps of assistants to take possession be fore tho 15th of April. The eminent vcterlniry surgeon, Dr. Tomasso Kcofe,“lnspector of C’altlo and Special Agent of thu Treasury Department, was at thu Block- Varda again yesterday, mid, in company with Superintendent Sherman, made a thorough tour of tho place, examining lulo the condition of the steers and the heifers, “ thu strong bulls of Baslian,” and lliolr bovine sisters, cousins, aunts, and wives* relations. Hu found tho cat tle In healthy condition, without a single excep tion, and would llku to seo tho mau that Insinu ates that there Is u single cose of contagious disease at tho yards. Judge Bangs positively refused to bu Inter viewed yesterday in reference to those orders from Assistaut-Bollcltor Kobluson, of tho Trcas ury Hcuartinent, directing a furthercoutlnunnea “* tlm B. r. Allen case, as published yesterday m a Washington special to Tub Tumults.’ In his jocular way-thu Judge remarked something about the prononess of newspaper men to Invent whut the vulgar call “yarns” and “stills,”—a proneness even as that of the sparks to fly up ward,—and much more of tho same sort. But It was noticeable that ho failed to come down with a good square denial ol the truth of the dispatch; and thu reporter was led to Infer, from this und tho. fact that a deal of correspondence was going on, that the whole THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: THURSDAY, MARCH .37, 187!) PAGES. Biihjcct—tho fact that the case had been sot for April 3. and that an order for n continuance had come from the Judge's nllcsrcd superior, thu Assistant Solicitor—was being laid before the District Attorney's real superior, to wit: thu Attorney-General. What may come of It all remains to bo seen; lv*tlf the supposed cor* rcspoudcnco results In settling beyond a doubt the utter lark of otiy authority on tho part of the aged Solicitor or his young assistant to med dle In matters which It would seem belong only to the Attorney-General's office, It will settle what has for sumo time been considerably of a vexed question. CRIMINAL. James Warren, a North Side lad of tender years, was lined SSO yesterday by Justice Wil son for making himself generally obnoxious about a school, and disturbing tho scholars. Herman Young and John Collins, who wore charged with tho burglary of David Burton’s cigar-factory, No. 0 'Market street, and the theft of S4OO worth of cigars, were before Jus tice D’Wolf yesterday. Collins was discharged, and Young was held to tho Criminal Court in bonds of SI,OOO. • Michael and Thomas Driscoll, charged with assaulting Martin Delaney, took a change of venue yesterday injustice Wilson from Justice Hummlll. and obtained a continuance till April 8, under bonds of SSOO each.

A dispatch received yesterday from Spring field conveyed tho information that the Gov ernor had pardoned Patrick Qaughau, convicted ot murder at the March term in 1877, mid sen tenced for live years. Gnoghan mul his victim, a muu named Weeks, were both tailors by occupation, and lived together in a house on Cornell struct. Their families quarreled, mid ultimately Gaughan and Weeks had a fierce dispute as to the rights ot each to an outhouse on the premises, and In Die encounter Weeks was shot dead. There wore numerous extenuating; cir cumstances in Qaughnu’s favor. That bogus check swindler turned up again in tho West Division yesterday.

While under heavy ball to appear lor trial upon a charge of swindling, the young man Jumped the town and came on to this city.

Thu llev. llobert I*. Allison then prayed for a special outpouring ol thu spirit. Thu hymn, “My Faith Looks up to Thee,” was then sung by tho choir, aud Mr. Stubhius fallowed with thu hymn, “ He Will Hide Me.” It was then announced that thu ualu tloor of thu house would bo reserved this cveulog for young men. The rest of the bouse would be opened for other persons. A special meeting would be held Friday evening at 6 o’clock at tbo Fourth Presbvterlan Church. The ladies of that church would furnish supper (or all tbs laymen who might come, aud all laymen were invited to bo present. .The Rev. Mr. Pentecost desired to meet the business-men who are inter ested in Christ’s cause. Mr. Hlohblns then sang touchingly, "In tho silent midnight watches.” ,THB HBV. MR. PBNTKCOSP then read a few verses from the Fifty-first Psalm, commonly called "the Penitential Psalm of David.” Probably all were acquainted with the sad history of that psalm. It was David’s open confession written down,—David’s cry for mercy ami forgiveness. The history of tho Psalmist was n very suggestive one. When It was considered, one could tint imagine that David had fallen into the triple sin, but when leisure came to him as tho Ring ho full. Ills trouble was idleness, or u ' neglect of duty. Instead of doing battle for the Lord, he was nt home, not serving the Lord, and the net was spread for hint, and Into It ho foil. Wherever men were Idle there was sin,— idleness was thu Devil’s handmaiden. The jreat proportion of crime grew out of it. Fol lowing the disposition to bo idle and gratify bis Host), David exnosed himself, yielded to tempta tion. It was not sin to lie tempted. Sin was a yielding to tho temptation. When one thought over the sin nml took delight in the thought, (hero was sin committed. David got so tar into sin that he could not well gut out without kill- ing ihe husband of the woman whom he had taken to himself. Sin was cumulative,—one sin led to another. No man became bad all at once. Tho sins indulged In to-dny wero such that it the sinner had been told ten years ago that ho would mil Into them ho would not believe it. A young man did not boiievo that lie would become a drunkard. The dally pa pers bore the record of the fall of a well-known and high-standing gentleman. His sin had commenced little by little. First ho borrowed a little; then ho speculated and tost, and then he stole to cover Ids losses. David’s history taught that sin was cumulative. Sin dulled the conscience and calloused and scared the heart. But David had turned his back on his sin when his conscience pricked him a little. All sin was committed against God. People could wrong each other, but they could not sin against each oilier. Crime was erramitteo against society, sin against God. All sin was n personal offence, a personal wrong against God, and was committed in His night. Sin in darkness was in God’s sight, ana unless It was blotted out the whole world would know ll some day. Like the man robbing the orchard und looking In all directions In tear of detec tion, people forgot to look heavenward when engaged lu the commission ot sin. Nothing was bidden from God. Soma people said: “My nature Is sinful. How can Ibn expected to bo good I” Slu und salvation wero matters of choice. A man need not follow thu dictates of Ids nature. When a man willingly was Ig norant lie was responsible for his Ignorance, and when a man willfully rejected his means of sal vation lie became responsible for his punish ment, und the sin ami-guilt of his own nature wore fastened on him by his own choice. Sin was manifold in its manifestations. Transgres sion was tho dullbcrato breaking of the law,—a stepping over the line,—and no man over crossed the line without a full consciousness of the fact. Iniquity meant crookedness. People were al ways making crooked paths around duties mul hard places. That was iniquity. Jml as asnako made a crooked path in the dust in tho road, so did a sinner leave a crooked path in thu road way ot life. The speaker thanked God that Ho had taken away all traces of tho crooked path ot the course of his life. If thcro was any ono thing for which the Christina could rejoice it was tliAt God not only took a man from Heil to Heaven, but took Holt out ot a man and put Heaven in its place. The digestion of sin was bard. A drunkard thought only of the pleasure ot getting drunk, and forgot the headache ot tho next day. Sin might be at first sweet to the mouth, but In thu end It was bitter os gall. They that sowed of the llcsh should of the flesh reap corruption. 1 The Rev. Mr. Stcbbins then sang tho hymn commencing, "Are you coming homo to night!” and tho scrvlcu was closed with ttio benediction. Many sinners remained for guidance. - MORTON CAUGHT.

Mr. James, the ogent in this city of the plun dered insurance company, was applied to at his office, No. 114 LaSalle street, lie,for men In his employ, were cognizant ot Morton’s where abouts, and a clerk who was able to recognize him was scut out with Policeman 0. 11. Walker of the West Twelfth Street Station, ami alone late in the afternoon they ran across their man at the corner of - Lake uml State streets. Morton was a little taken aback at Uio sudden arrest, but whan told that he was arrested for the larceny of a large sum of money from a Now York In surance comnany, freely owned up that ho was the man being sought after, lie was taken di rectly to the ofllclals at police headquarters. There ho stated that, while sojourning in Can ada, he corresponded with the Financial Commit tee of thejdelraudcd Company, and from this ami with the efforts made In his behalf by friends and relatives in .New York, hn was confident that the matter bad been compromised, ilu therefore had no hesitancy in coming on to this citv, where ho hoped to find some sort of a busi ness or occupation among strangers who knew nothing of . his past record, lie arrived hero Monday, mid took lodgings at No. 217 Illinois street, ilu wife had kept tip a continuous correspondence, nml os she was very anxious to join him In a new and honest life In the West, Morton says, ho had made up his mind to scud for her about May 1, provided ho found employment here, ami was thus enabled to fix upon a homo. The prisoner talked rather freely about the de falcation, and owned'up that he was many thousands of dollars short in his accounts. The stolen money had been all spent foolishly in riotous living, not only hv himself, but by his companions, who mado of him a cat’s-paw to raku forth dollars enough for their carousals. He wsß perfectly willing to ho held for the New York authorities, but thought It singular that the dispatch for his arrest should have been sent by the District Attorney,and not by the Company. Homo sort of a compromise had certainly been entered Into by friends working in his bobalf, but he supposed that , all would come out la order when hu was taken kseK to New York. .Once behind the bars of a witness-room at the Armorv, Morion became sullen and silent. He refused point-blank to countenance a ■ reporter, much less to talk to one, ami would positively uml once for all say no more about his alTalrs In this city. In ap pearance Morton Is quite stylish and even aris tocratic. Ho is about U 5 years of age, of good regular features, blonde mustache, and hair a lew shades darker. He was clad In a light suit ami a silk hat. Mr. James. tho Chicago agent of tlm Com pany, was called upon, hut ho knew but llttlo about the defalcation, except that Morton was thu roan wanted, The amount might ho till the .way from $5,000 to $35,000. Mr. James seemed to atTuet much ignorance of tho atTalr, ami accm ea to he under the Impression that If much waa said about it by the press, that wrong Impres sions might be mado that would be detrimental to thu Company's best interest. Thu defalcation was slightly touched upon lo a recent Issue of an Insurance magazine, and, in an Interview with tho I’rosldeutof tho Company, that otllclal was said to tlx the amount nt ouly IS.UOU. Morton started with the Company us n clerk some sixteen years ago, mid gradually worked his way uo, until he was made Treasurer. He held - tho otllco for several years, . and was giving great satisfaction to the other olllccrs, when suddenly, In August lust, bis fictitious accounts were discovered and the defalcation proved. Morton absconded us soon as he found out that the Company was aware of his crime, and for a long time it was thought ho bad gone to £u rope. THIS JUSTICES. . UOW TUB? TABS IT. The chief and almost the only toolc of conver satlon around thu Justice Courts yesterday was thu action of thu Circuit Judges In tho matter of the nominations tor Justices of the Peace. Tho Courts of those magistrates who were fortunate enough to have their names scat to the Gov ernor were of coursu scoucs of much congratu lating and jolllllcalloa In a quiet way. The op posite may be said of tho Courts of the unsuc cessful aspirants. Tho dlsoppolntod ones were rallied by their friends as much as possible, but that did not serve ■to dispel the gloom that has settled upon some of them. Those who are disappointed ore terribly disappointed, but (hey do not intend to give up without further struggle. Letters and tele §rams were being written and received jester ay at almoet every Court from friends at SprlngUeld, who y.luntccied their services In behalf of their particular friends, aud the prob abilities are that the light lor the Governors approval or disapproval will be made long aud strong nt tho Stole Capitol. Even those Jus tices who have been reappointed, mid those men who have been nominated by the Judiciary, are busy In correspondence with the acquaint ances at Springfield’who might Influence the tide of affairs. To say .that feeling in the matter is great wore unnecessary. It stands lq reason that the attaches of the Courts are loud In their walsos of tho Justice In whose retinue they are ■amid. It Is equally true that lawyers who have been luckv enough lo win stills are warm in tliclr admiro’tlin ot the Court before whom tho suit was won. Much surprise Is felt oyer (lie defeat of Justice Haines, and many think he deserved reappointment. Justice Haines may ho pardoned under Hie circumstances for thinking no 100. That tie docs think so is evi denced by his efforts to influence those In power to agree with his view of himself. Much weight will be brought to bear to change the list presented to his Excellency. Justice D’Wolf went to Springfield last night to look after tils own Interests. Ho takes Ids slight to heart for several reasons, chief among which is that ho has been a Justice for twenty five years and wants to continue in service until ho prompts himself to retire. On the North Side, Justice W. F. Ds Wolf Is apparently indif ferent, and vet ho says that tie was not hitherto aware o.t the size of the figure which politics cut lo the opinions of tho nominating Judges. Justice Robinson, another unfortunate, lias tho satisfaction of knowing Unit many people want him retained hi office. A delegation of citizens called on him Tuesday nlglituml protested against his removal, nml nianv lawyers Join in wishing Unit ho might continue to preside over n Justice Court. Very little has been circulated about the new appointees. "Sullivan is a shoemaker, and Uieroforo will mnko n good Justice,” is heard frequently ami ironically among the North Skiers. Itroaybo said that tho Justices agree in the belief of the coexistence of life and tiope, nml while their official life lasts will not despair of managing by hook or crook to secure a reappointment. It is reported that the Judges, before they began selecting the Justices, decided to appoint one German in each division, and aiso to divide the nominations politically so that there should bo three Democrat* on tho South and ns mam* on the West Side and two on tho North, with four Republicans on the South nml West Sides, nml three on tho North. They be gan by selecting the South Side Democrats, and nicked out Foote, Mcoch, und Wallace. Then Pollack was chosen as a German and a Republic an, and then Summcrfiold. Mr. Haines was dropped because the three Democrats bad been selected. The reason given for dropping Calvin D’Wolf was that he had an Income of $5,000 or SO,OOO n year. The Gormans, It is understood, are dissatisfied with the small number ot Justices which they obtained as compared with tho largo number given the iriah, and limy will send a delegation down to Gov. Cnl loin to urge their views upon blm. There Is also considerable growling among tho South Side aspirants over an alleged favoritism to the Fourth Ward, five of tho seven recom mended by the Judges—Foote, Poliak, Bray ton, Hammer, und Wallace—living in that sec tion of tho city; and it is not unlikely that tho Governor will bo asked lo interfere on this ground. SUBURBAN, iiron i*ark. Rumors have been floating around the village for the past few days that A. D. Waldron, de faulting Treasurer of the village, was dead. What gave rise to the rumor is unknown, but there is probably some political dodge behind It. A tetter received yesterday by ono of Hyde Park’s most respected citizens from Mrs. Wal dron stated that Mr. Waldron was confined to bis bed, and that his nurses wore obliged to do everything for him. His physicians think ho *i)l not live much longer, but Mrs. Waldron thinks bo may lie in his present state for a few mouths, it is an undoubted face that Mr. Wal dron is fast failing. INDIANS. The Contractors Dismayed—Apprehensions that Hitting Dull Moans Duslnoss. ttpeclal Diuatcti to The Tribune. Bismarck, D. T., March 20.—Sixty thousand pounds ot flour for the Standing Rock Indian Agency inspected by Lieut. Kcsllngbury wero rejected, und tbo contractor, I’. 11. Kelly, ol St. Paul, requested to got better flour. Tho De partment doesn’t permit had Hour to go to tho Agencies on the Upper Missouri any more. Con tractors complain that the markings are knocked off tho Indian business, and that It is nut what it used to bo in tho days of Orville Grant. Tho renegade Cheyennes have not yet crossed tho Yellowstone,'and reports from Buford In dicate that the military scouting-portles will yot gobble them up. Military men hero think there must be some thing warlike in Hitting Bull when MaJ. Walsh concedes that ho is insubordinate. Walsh has always Insisted that 8. B. was a peaceable In dian, and It has been his ambition to convince the United States Hint Custer's conqueror would not molest anybody this side of the line. Now Walsh weakens, and sends us word that his pet hostlles uru liable to go on the warpath as soou as tho grass begins to sprout. A VICTORY FOR LABOR, fipretat Dlipafih to The Tribunr. PiTTfiDima, Pa., March 26.—'The coal-miners’ strike Is over, so far as the price for digging is concerned, the bosses having consented to pay three cents. This is a victory for the miners, over which they ore having a Jollification to night.* General resumption of work is nob ex pected, however, until after Saturday, on which day a grand mass-meeting of the strikers will be hold at Elizabeth. Among tho reasons whicli forced the operators to give In. ono Is that sev eral of them are under heavy bonds to furnish coal for Hie Gas-WorKs in Bt. Louis, Louisville, mul Cincinnati, which are running short ot sup plies. . PARDONED. Spidni J>fipn(eh (o The Tribune, Springfield, 111., March 26.—'Tho Governor has pardoned Patrick Gaughan, who was con victed ot murder at the March term, 1677, of tho Cook County Criminal Court, and sentenced to tho Penitentiary for five rears. This pardon la recommended by Judge Williams and State’s- Attorney Mills, on the ground that the punish ment was excessive. A PROPHECY FULFILLED. When Baron Liebig slated that his discovery of Extract of Meat (resulting from the analysis of up wards of sixty sorts of .meat) would prove one of the most beneficial to mankind of his various dis coveries, ho had no conception of the enormous extent of consumption which the future would de velop, nor of the succession of gold medals, diplo mas of honor, and other distinctions which would be awarded to the Liebig Company, to whom he gave the exclusive use of his name. From a few hundred Bavarian oxen, which were originally auf. flclont to supply the Continental demand, the total of cattle since used by the Company exceeds 1,.tC0,000 head, and there are comparatively few households which do not ovpll themselves of Lie big Company's Extract of Meat. At the Parle Ex hibition of 1807, Huron Liebig hlmaelf waa honored with the Grand Cross of the Legion or Honor, and the Company with two gold medals, one at found ora of an entirely now branch of Industry, and the second for best quality of their extract. At the present Parle Exhibition the sold medal, Being the first prise, waa awarded for best quality. This brings up the number of first prises aud distinc tions carried at all exhibitions since the Com pany's existence to nine cold medals and diplomas of honor.— itornino Pott, DO YOU FURNISH THIS SPRINGY If so, the greatly Increased slock of rarest and newest designs and novelties known lu Jibe furni ture trade just pat m at lbs corner of Wabash avenue and Monroe street by the Oblssgo Carpet Company should bo Inspected.
