Her wedded life was u lung mid a happy one, yet sbo dies only in the 00th year of her age.— a fact which will startlingly remind many people in this city who assisted ot the American debut of her brilliant sister in Now York Xorty-ilvo years ago that they must no longer include themselves among the beady youth of the present day.

The Singular Story that Two Now York Itn portiTS Bring Irum Gordon City—Stewart's Body In Friendly Hand*. AptciUl la LouxttUU Cautitr-Journal. Nbw York, Aug. 19.—Two reporters, who were sent from a New York newspaper ofllce to Garden City to see what they could ascertain about the probability of Mr. A T. Stewart’s body being concealed there by Judge Hilton, descended Into the crypt and ‘found that, while the walls and celling of the crypt were being lav ishly ornamented and frescoed, the floor seemed neglected, and on making an Inquiry about this they persuaded a laborer to take a shovel and remove some of the rubbish on the floor. Then It appeared that the appearances were de ceptive, and that the floor was actually completed lu the finest possible Mosaic work, but that it seemed to be intentionally covered with rub bish. On pursuing their Investigation, they saw a long' marble slab two feet or nioro wide set Into the floor, out of all harmony with the arrangement and evident design. This was scaled tight into Its place with lead. Suspect ing that It covered the remains of A. T. Stew art, they plied the foreman with ques tions, uud he admitted that tho slab was, not a port of the plan of the floor, and that U had teen Introduced Into Its place for a temporary purpose. Thenjthey put the ques tion: “ Does not that also cover (he body of A. T. Stewart!” Tim foreman replied: “You must draw your own Inferences.” He refused to denv that Mr. Stuwan’s body was there. it was also learned that there are four watchmen, who are employed to stay at this place all of the time, and that they have been surrounded with all the checks possible to compel them to attend (atthlullr to their duty. It Is argued from this that there Is something there to guard more than the stone structure. The indications all are that the body is now practically recovered. An employe ol Judge Hilton positively assured your correspondent that the body was now in friendly bunds, uud sail that ho could give important details were It not fur the fact that Urn information, from Its very nature, would be traced to him, and would cost him his position.

In the recent newspaper flurry concerning the Stewart affair the palpable falsehoods are so numerous that It is useless to attempt to cor rect them. Some, however, might have been omitted had thu dally papers used us much dili gence to publish what was true os to display what was startling.

As for Law rence, ho appointed him, ho says, because he fell, that It was necessary to have a practical builder and contractor lo superintend the com mencement of llic work on the Southern-Peni tentiary onildlncs, and believed that Lawrence was the best man he could find.

Aug. 20.—'The resignation of tlio manager of the Bank of Montreal still contin ues to be a leading topic ot conversation on the street. Some criticise the action In employing the funds of Hie bunk (or building the St. Paul' & Minneapolis Railway, mul suy It would have been generally condemned bad the speculation not turned out successful. To enable Canadian millers to grind flour for export from American wheat Imported for tills purpose, tbe customs authorities bare Issued a regulation authorizing millers to make oath at their nearest custom-house to thn effect that the flour so exported had been ground In bond from American wheat. The Montreal Corn Exchange claims Unit this regulation docs uot work well* and that Boston flour dealers have been getting this flour from Canada iu bund, and shipping it to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick as Canada flour, and thus avoiding the duty, 't he Exchange, therefore, bus suggested to Mr. Johnson i hat the difficulty arisen m consequence of the Inattention of‘many millers who live a distance (rum custom-houses, mid that Urn oath of the merchant or the miller’s agent at thu shipping point to the effect that all Cana dian Hour exported by them in baud had been ground from Canadian wheat mid no other, would cover the difficulty. Mr. Johnson Is will ing to adopt thu suggestion. It Is said that Superintendent Walling, of the New* York police, and Judge Hilton were communicated with last fall, when suspicion of A. T. Stewart's body having been brought to Montreal was aroused, mid that thuy refused to follow up the clew. Frank Thomas, deck-hand of the barge W. 0.

Thu berth last uccuuied on Cana) street to that city brought It within 200 yards of Stewart’s resting-place. On receiving orders, the Shelton started for Montreal singly, ostensibly with a cargo of coal, hut, culling at I’latUburg, on Lake Champlain, the precious remains were taken from the Delaware *fc Hudson Canal Company’s freight sheds uml transshipped to (lie canal-boat. This step was rendered necessary by (lie vigilance of the Canadian customs officers, who carefully ex amined every package In transit by rail.

There Is the very best authori ty for denying this assertion. About three months a <so one of Die subscribing banks sent $25,000,0t0 In 4 per cents to London for sale.

C., Aug. 20.—Tbo claim for $103,000 damages on account of illegal inter ference with American fishermen at Fortune Ray, which has been presented to the llrltisb Government, is not n claim for tbu restoration of that or any other part of tbo Ualifax award upou the ground of non-fulfillment of conditions. The present claim is for specific grievances, and Is to be considered without reference to the amount of the Halifax award! with which it bos nothlnc to do. Mr. Welsh was Instructed to base the claim for $103,000 upon the actual loss and damage sus tained by American llshcrmcnln consequence of the violent invasion of their treaty rights at Fortune Bav, and to obtain some security against the recurrence of similar offenses in the future. Advices received by the State Department from the North American coast represent that, although no actual violence has occurred this year, our fishermen ore deterred by apprehen sions of violence from approaching the shore and carrying on their burliness with the freedom Guaranteed to them by treaty, ami that wo aru therefore deriving no benefit from our agree ment with Uio British Government, and getting no return for our money. Tlie state of feeling which prevails between our north coast fisher man and British American fishermen, who con sider themselves justified in uslnc force to curry out local prohibitory lows, is regarded bv our Government os extremely dangerous, and liable at any moment to lead to bloodshed and serious international misunderstanding, and It is therefore very anx ious that some steps shall bo takcu by tlie British Government to do away with the local prohibitory laws of the Canadian Provinces, which now practically override and nullify the treaty provisions of a far higher authority.

In 1815, when Spain was exerting all her powers to suppress the revolution In Venezuela, the 1,000-ton llno-of-bnttlo ship San Pedro Al cantara was dispatched from the mother coun try, laden with ammunition of war and treasure to pay the army In Venezuela and the navy oq the Spanish main. Bno had on board, as proven by tho records preserved In Ibo Slate archives in Madrid, S'-’,000,000 in cold coin packed in Iron diesis nml $8,000,000 in silver packed in wooden chests. When tho vessel arrived oft La Guayra tho insurgent forces were threatening Cnraccas, and tho frtchloncd merchants and cicrcv, fearing a sack of tho city, hastened la place their wealth in tho treasure hold of the Ssn Pedro Alcantara for sato keeping. Ilullion, items, church ornaments, and |owcls, rougiiiy estimated at $1,000,000, were thus added to Diq riches already aboard. Tho San Pedro Alcan tara sailed from La Guavrn to oil the southern coast of the Island of Margarita, where she anchored between Cache and Uubagua. small Islands to the south of Margarita. Dunne n revel among the Bailors a tiro was started by the upturning of n bowl or blazing punch, the Haines communicating with a barrel of brandy, it Is said the dry, wooden vessel was speedily enveloped, and Dio fire soon became uncontrollable until It reached Die powder-magazine, when a terrible explosion look place, shattering to fragments the after half of Die vessel, scattering far and wide over the waters Use wealth of her treasure-bold, ami sacrilleing the lives of 700 out of 1.000 men. All the foregoing is a matter of history, estab lished hr undoubted authority; Dial remaining to be stated is a matter of knowledge to living witnesses. In 18dl a company in Baltimore un dertook to recover tho treasure. They worked three months on the wreck of tho forward half of the vessel, and recovered about SII,OOO in coin; tho cola found there was only scattered silver dollars, stuck into the wood-work by Um foreo of the explosion. Owing to the slow progress in recovering any of tho treasure, many concerned in the expedition became dis satlsllcd with tho way hy which the wreck was worked. Thomas 11. Folllnguby, one of Dm divers, advanced a theory to the Superintendent that Dm force of Die explosion had thrown al most everything on the vessel aft; other divers coincided with him in his opinion. After changing the location on the schooner from which they worked a diving-bell to the place In dicated hv Folllngshy, they succeeded, after sit months’ work. In recovering about $303,000 In stiver coin. However, much more was recovered, as the divers secreted .about themselves largo sums of money. They also found Jewels of which they rendered no account. One man. in particular, picked up a diamond cross, whli-li was subsequently sold la New York lorslß,Uool Several of Die divers finally stole the longboat and tied to Lo Guayra; Diey wore, however, pursued and arrestud, but as they bad counter claims for percentage, mid Die manager ot tho expedition was quite uuDopulnr. thenflalr was compromised and they were sot free, tho expeill tlon returning to Baltimore to relit and set out the second time. Owing, again, to diflicultles between thcjsuncrlntendcnt and his divers, ilia expedition was compelled to return to Baltimore Die second tlino mid again relit. Tho third ex- pcdliionwascqually unsuccessful. Owin': to a chance in the Venezuelan Government, a su«- pcclon of pretended distrust mid deception in m tlie matter of royalty were token advantage of to annul the cram. An expedition from Providence took soma $30,000, Out was believed to be dishonestly managed and broucht up in a row. Another small expedition cot SIB,OOO. Several attempts have been made since by Incompetent and in* eilidcnt expeditions, all of which have trot money; but, owlnc to various circumstances, have only been measurable successful, having been stopped by incompctcncr or avaricious dlshonustv. The latest was sent nut by a well-known New York capitalist In 1878. It failed, however, throuch the incoinpotuncv of the Captain. The grant for exclusive working of (ho ground for a term of six years is now held by Mr. Folllngeby, the diver before mentioned ns directing tile movement in 184 ft, which led to the recovery of $300,000. The ground to be worked Is about two and ono-balf miles from shore, in an almost land-locked roadstead; the water (s from fifty to sixty foct’deep; thu bottom Is B ind fourteen to thirty inches deep; at both ends ot the road stead there is very deep water, preventing, therefore, any accumulation of s iml in the road stead. Tim current is nuver more than two knots, which renders It an easy matter to work at the wreck tlie whole year. It Is proposed to dredge tlie entire bottom for a sulllciont radius to take up everything thrown out by the explo sion. Dredges'taking twenty-four saunre feet at each dip have been tried, and work well. Ex perts contend that thu Iron chests containing tlie gold have afforded a solid break by the ex plosion force, and have consequently been thrown far oil; while the silver hurled from thu burst boxes came down in a shower within a narrow radius, which accounts for thu fact Unit only silver has been recovered. The last expe dition. under Capt. Post, ot the brig Gypsy,was compelled to return to thu United States, as ml employed suffered from the heat and buddrink- Ing-waler taken aboard at the Island of Marga rita. so Unit work was Impossible, ami it may ho said that thu Captain was the only one who es caped any iiluuss.
