But on the hearth our little eot Hat hidden, dark and damp ; But I was happy with my lot, Mary was my lamb. I have gained the golden gear und sorrow ; I've a world of wealth and glow. But no «»ye awaits me on the morrow Like the one I used to know. Oh ! give me back my wee wife, My small flock on the moor. For Joy has left me lone in life, Since we wero very poor.

Dead wood, D. 7'., Sept. 27.—The city has presented an unusually active appearance to day. The flames and smoke having cleared away enough to allow tlie mass of the ruins to be cleared away and the erection of tents and small wooden shanties; of w hich there have been from 75 to 100 put up. Almost every class of business is represented on Main and Sherman streets, and all having an immense rush of custom, although prices have not advanced except in a very few in stances. where tlie demand for some article w as greater than the supply, and then the ad vance has been slight. All tlie daily papers are issuing on small sheets, which are struck oil 1 at Lead ( ity and Central. They contain little else than tire news. Lumber is being hauled in by every available team in the vi cinity, and is bringing $40 per thousand. The are running night atid day, but not enough lumber can be brought in to supply the enormous demand. Some had shanties erected within five hours from the time of the outbreak. All day telegrams have been pouring in ot tering stocks of good, money, clothing, food, etc., but as yet nothing but merchandise lias been accepted. No relief committee has been organized and probably there will be none. The people who are and pronably will be bankrupt and homeless do not want to accept aid from tlie outside world, and the merchants and others are very generous, able and willing to sland their share of the bur deu. At a meeting of tlie members of tlie bar this afternoon resolutions w ere passed asking Judge Moody to remain here instead of at tending tlie October term of the Supreme Court at Yankton, so that in case his services would be needed tliey would be at hand. The Supreme Court will probably adjourn a few weeks until the city partially rebuilds and 411 iet is restored. The losses in addition to those telegiaphed last night are worth mention. The Stage Co., $5,000 : Bussell, billiard hall, $7,000; Wm. Brown, cigars, tobacco and fire arms, $0,000 ; Black Hill Brewery, $0,000 ; Gibb, Stone & Co., furniture, $7,500; Bell Union Theatre, $5,000 ; Gem Theatre, $12,000; J. A. Header, $5,000 ; F. Zipp, boots and shoes, $10,000 ; Jacob Worthimer, $12,000; J H. Burns, law yer, $5,500. Competent judges place the total loss at fully $3,000,000, although some time must elapse before the exact ligures can he obtained. Tlie bank vaults were opened to day and were found i ntact. The chronome ters on the time locks were still running. Botli banks with open on Monday. Washington, Sept. 28.— The Attorney General was obliged to leave the Presidential party at Cincinnati a few days ago and return to Washington to make preparations for Su preme Court which is to sit ou the 13th of October. The cases before it at its opening are of peculiar importance. Among them is a petition for mandamus against Judge Bivers of the Western District of Vinginia, who re moved into the U. S. Court tlie cases of two colored men, indicted for murder, upon the ground that they were prevented from bavin; any colored men on the jury. Also a case of habeas corpus on behalf of two judges of tlie Slate Court of Virginia who had been indicted in tlie U. S. Court for preventing colored men from sitting upon Juries. In addition, there is one from West Vir ginia which State has passed a law excluding colored men from juries. There is also the case of a revenue officer from Tennessee who is indicted for murder in the courts of that State, the case having been removed into tli« U. S. Court for trial on the ground that it was committed in the necessary execution of his duty as a revenue officer, and the question of the constitution ality of the law authorizing such removal is to be discussed as weil as the manner in which the trial is to proceed after its transfer into the U. S. Court. There are also two case» involving tlie constitutionality of the election laws which are brought up bv habeas eopns. One from the District of Maryland, involving the legal ity of the punishment of tlie five judges of election in that State, and the other from the District of Ohio. In connection with those, which may he termed petit cases, there are also three others to be heard later in the term, involving tlie constitutionality of tlie Civil Bights Act en titling negroes to equal accommodations at theatres, inns. etc. There are also three cases of commercial importance involving tlie constitutionality of tlie United States trade and market laws. 'Die first as they affect foreign nations witli whom we have treaties, and the second ,as to their operation within the lines of a particu lar State. Upon these questions there have been conflicting decisions in the district courts of Ohio and Wisconsin. It is under stood that those affecting foreign commerce have been advanced in tlie L T . S. Court at the request of the French Minister transmitted through tlie Secretary of State. New Vojik, Sei*. 17.—At 8:15 Bowell walked forward carrying the American flag, and Merritt ran around with the Union Jack, the band playing alternately "Yankee Doo dle" and ''God Save the Queen," and the dense crowd cheering, whistling and clapping their hands. The frenzy seized the vast mass of people in the streets, and their responsive roar tilled the Garden when the cheering was renewed. When near the floral piece a shield surmounted by waving corn was presented to Bowell. It bore tlie inscription, "To'Charles Bowell, by tlie Albion Society." It was car ried in front of Bowell for several laps. I 11 a few minutes tlie uproar was redoubled, when Merritt, Iiazael and Bowell, hand in hand, Merritt's the central figure, walked around the track. They stopped opposite tlie time keeper's stand, and Bowell said, "Gentlemen, 1 thank you, I am through." Tlie three men retired from the track and match at 8:25, their scores being : Bow ell, 530 miles; Merritt, 515 miles; Uazael, 500 miles and one lap. San Francisco, Sept. 28. —Those who visited tlie Sand Lots to-day in expectation of hearing Kearney pronounce against Grant were disappointed. In the course of Ins cus tomary speech tlie agitator referred to his 1111 - suecessful attempt to obtain an interview with tlie General stating liis intention was to invite him to the Sand Lots. He proposed to make 110 comments on Grant's refusal to see him, leaving intelligent workinmen to form their own conclusions. St. Joseph, Mo., Sept. 2».— An immense crowd welcomed the President to-day, al though there was but a slight warning of his coming. Cannons were fired, bells rung, whistles blown, aud cheeis rent the air in to ken of rejoicing. As tlie President with Mrs. Hayes and General Sherman alighted from tlie cars, carriages were ready to convey tlie party to Teatlr's Opera House, where there was some speaking, tlie President as usual taking oecasiou to refer to the brightening prospect and prosperity of the near future. He discussed at some length on State rights, but on the same line of his previous addresses. In the course of a brief address General Sherman said : " As I stand here I think of the days when caravans started from St. Joseph and from Fort Leavenworth to that far off California, anil of that noble and brave old soldier, Ste phen W. Kearney, whom 1 would like to s|K'ak to you about by tlie hour, hut I must pass by that. I must pass by that time when St. Joseph was the port from which sailed those ships of tlie prairie ovei vast plains which reach to the sea. I rejoice with you all that the President of tlie United States lias come to St. Joseph to speak a few kind words to assure you that the good time is beginning to come, that you may all of you safely in vest your money and labor without apprehen sion, and witli a feeling that the grand future lies before you : daylight is just dawning up on our beloved country." New York, Sept. 20.—A London special says William Bingold Cooper, a forger who was wanted in San Francisco, has been ar rested and identified. He is an American by birth and education, was formerly of the United States, but is one of the most daring and successful forgers who ever operated. He was ensign on the staff of Admiral Lee of the North Atlantic squadron during tlie war, after which lie was on duty in the office of detail in the Navy Department. I 11 Wash ington lie forged the names of several pay masters to the amount of several thousand dollars. Though well known in Washington lie went to tlie fourth Auditor's office, coolly represented liimsel as the paymaster at Balti more, got money, then went to the next office, represented himself as another paymaster, and secured a further sum. He was subse quently arrested. Cooper's friends repre sented that lie died in prison, but in reality be went to San Francisco at the expiration of his term where became a stock broker and committed tremendous forgeries. A year or two ago he fled and was never heard of after ward, Cooper's forgery on Flynn, Mills & Co. was for the sum of $20,000, and the cheek had been paid, and but for the fool hardiness of the forger Cooper would have escaped. But when tlie detectives and bank ers thought lie had flown lie coolly walked into the lievFs mouth, otherwise tlie banking house of Glynn, Mills & Co., where lie had the audacity to keep an account, and de manded to know what was all this talk about the forged check. He was very indignant, but was nevertheless immediately arrested. This affair further led to his detection in an other forgery perpetrated on tlie Bank of England in June last, for which he w ill be arraigned to-morrow ; and to tile discovery of the manner 111 which lie has been living iu England while perpetrating his forgeries. The detectives found that he had been resid ing at a beautiful cotent iy seat called East Lodge, at Hemmcl Hampstead, Heretoford sliire. There he had carried out life in a sumptuous fashion. He had 'six horses, drag carriages, three liveried menials and a number of other servants. He followed hounds, hunted and shot with tlie neighbor ing gentry, attended the village church witli pious regularity, gave grand dinner parties, and donated liberally to the poor of tlie par ish. He kept an account at tlie village bank ing house, paid liis bills promptly, and his house was filled with articles of furniture of the most expensive kind. San Francisco, Sept. 29.—Grant's recep tion of tlie public school children at Wood ward's Gardens to-day, was at least the most enthusiastic ovation he has yet received. Before eleven o'clock not less than twenty thousand youngsters swarmed like martins, while the street ears were jammed and thou sands were making their way to the the ren dezvous on foot. At half-past eleven tlie General arrived and was heralded by the diseharge of cannon aud the vociferous clieens by the Lincoln school boys, who were drawn up at the entrance as a guard of hon or, escorted by tlie Board of Education, lie walked between files of children who crowd ed every avenue, to the pavilion where a stage had been arranged for the reception of tlie party. Ten thousand boys and girls were crowded into the building, and as the Gen eral made his appearance tlie cheers, stamp ing, whistling and cat-calling was deafening, while-from every part of tlie building bou quets- rained upon the stage and occupants. After a few minutes the enthusiastic young sters were reduced to comparative quiet, when 1 Mr. Hestor, President of the Board of Education, addressed General Grant as fol lows 5 " Gbnerai. Grant : Your loyalty to tlie public school system of the United States iias impelled tlie school children of San Francisco to extend this special greeting. The children, them parents and the Board of Education rec ognize in you a true and fearless friend of popular education, and are proud to look you in the taco and take you by the hand. Allow me, sir, to present you to the children and. teachers connected with tlie public schools of Saiii Francisco. Those happy faces will fell their own story." Another uproarious outbreak of applause followed),, after which the General addressed tlie audience to'She following eflect : " It is gratifying siuipiv to witness tills evi dence of tlie ediiffittionai privileges afforded by this young city. The crowds gathered in side and outside of this indicate that any child of age tit for school is provided lor. When education is generally diffused we may feci assured of the permanency ami perpetuity of our institutions. The greatest danger to our people grows out of ignorance, and this evidence of tlie universality of education is tlie best guarantee of your loyalty to Aueri 111 principles." | At tlie conclusion of Ids remarks General Grant and tlie Board of Education made I their way out of the building and following I tlie winding avenues of tlie gardens proceeded I to the fcieat amphitheatre on the other side or | tlie grounds. Children Ivy thousands lined i tlie walks and pelted the party with bouquets I while deafening cheers and the continual j rallie of drums with which each class was j provided created a bedlam of noise. On j .'aching tlie amphitheatre where at least twenty thousand hoys and girls were massed the stonn of floral missiles waxed heavier, j and on gaining the stand near the exit the a to party presented a thoroughly dilapidated ai d crushed appearance. Tlie General took a seat at tlie front of the platform, and the assembled throngs then marched by, to ena ble each one to obtain a good look at him. As the enthusiastic throng passed by,hundreds of hands were held out for a passing shake, and the demand lor autographs'*was altogeth er beyond the General's ability to supply. Tlie shower of flowers was kept up despite the efforts of the teachers and members of the board to stay it, and the party was almost overwhelmed with these tributes. At least thirty thousand children were present, and though the teachers were able to maintain reasonably good order, it was im possible to maintain the holiday spirits of the mass within the bounds of decorum. At one o'clock tlie young legions were still inarching past in file, with drums, banners, mottoes and flags, while the General main tained his position and faced the coustaut fire of bouquets with his accustomed tenacity and pluck. New York, Sept. 30.—The Herald's Wash ington special says that since the return of Grant to the United States none ofhis friends in Washington have heard anything from him on the subject of the Nicaragua canal, but by mail received from Yokohama at the Navy Department to-day came letters from naval officers in Asiatic waters slating that during the General's visit to Japan where he received letters from America, he commenced at once to talk up the subject, and inspired a new in terest in the project. One of the officers says " Grant is thoroughly in for it, and we catch enthusiasm from him." That seems to as sure the building of the great inter-oceauic can .11 via Nicaragua, it w as generally under stood among tlie officers of the navy in Asiatic waters that without delay another expedition would be sent fo re-survey tlie routes and make a final report on the one most available. Bequests have been made by officers to be ordered home that tliey may have the honor of aiding in the beginning of the great work. New York, Sept. 30.— At Robinson's rati fication meeting here last night, according to the Times' report, Col. Fellows said in tlie course of his speech, " There is upon the Pacific coast one whom the whole nation rises to honor. All political creeds are ob literated, all nationalities are forgotten to pay tribute to tlie man who headed the army which conquered the rebellion. [Tremendous cheering.] I can undrrstand why cannon should roar a greeting to Grant." [Renewed applause.] Washington, Sept. 30.—An interesting decision lias just been made by Acting Sec retary Bell of the Interior Department, in tlie case of Hugh Lyons against Rachael Stevens, of Salt Lake City, involving the question of the right of these parties to a section of Land in Salt Lake City land district. The claim of Lyons is rejected on the ground that the tract was not subject to pre-emption or settlement hy him. Rachael Stevens it appears is one of several wives of John G. Holman, whom she recognizes as her husband, and lie to all in tents and purposes governs and controls her acts. Tlie decision holds that in view of the polygamous condition, that, it the first poly iiious wife, while voluntarily retaining that illegal relation to a man, may in her own name obtain a title to 160 acres of public land, the second or twentieth wife may do tlie same, and the so-called husband would thus obtain in fact for his own use and benefit tlie control of that number of tracts of public land. This will not be permitted under the homestead or pre-emption laws. " If a so called wife," the derision continues, "should repudiate the illegal relation and reuse to vio late the positive laws of her country and of tlie civilized world, the fact that she had at one time been called the wife of a man, and had maintained that relation to him, would not operate as a bar to her right. No woman, however, who voluntarily maintains and acknowledges her position to be that of a plural or polygamous wife should be permit ted to make a homestead or pre-emption en try on public land, as the very fact that she maintains such a relation is conclusive evi dence that the entry is not made in good faith for her exclusive use or benefit. Washington, Sept. 30__The excess of ex ports over imports tor the year ending August 31st, 1879, amounted to $289,709,341. Hartford. Sept. 30.—H 011 . Gillette died a* residence iu this city to-day.
