Official Paper of tho County. GUITBAU will have a fair trial wiih full opportunity for defence. Hud he been oho down like a dog immediately after he had fired tho fatal bullet everybody would he satisfied. Lnt it would not do to kill him now—nor never, eavo under due process of law. There is danger ridding the world off him in any other way. It is not im probable, however, that other fanatics, like the soldier Mason, or some one quite as ambitious of notoriety as 6uiteau,may take the business into their own hands. A NY newspapers recently have stoted that the widow of Abraham Lincoln was living in poverty and had been scurvily treated by congress. Immediately after the assassination a law was passed giving her a year of her husband's salary, $25,000. Afterwards an act was passed permitting Mrs. Lincoln to have all letters Bent to her free of postage, and her own correspond ence was also franked. In 1870 a law was enacted giving the widow $3,000 a year during her life. Lincoln, though not wealthy, left considerable property at his death, enough to maintain his family in a modest manner of life. SEPTEMBER of this year will be remark able for the extraordinary rain-fall being ten inches for the month. This is more than four times the average of the Sep tember rainfall for tho previous six years —*nd more than three times the average for the last thirty years, The meteorologi cal records show no September rainfall since 1836 approximating the remarkable volume of water which fell from the sky during the month just past. All the lakes and •treams in Minnesota and Wisconsin being now full to overflowing, the approach of cold weather will suspend evaporation, and we should have heavy snows this winter we may expect next spring the most de structive inundation ever witnessed in this region. A A N N LIVERMORE, iu her observa tions in Europe of the oppressions of wo men, found that they were everywhere sub jected to the meanest and moat fatiguing manual labor, without proper compensa tion, while white men looked en, smoking their eternal pipes Without so much as lift ing a finger in help. She says that Ger many, the land of literaturo, science,schol arship, music, art, culture—to whose uni versities we send our sons for thorough, mental equipment—the land that boasts of its advanced civilization—this Germany leads in mean treatment of women, and has a preeminence in that kind of civilization which leaves nothing undone to exaitman, but is content to regard and treat woman as a serf. Mrs. Livermore undoubtedly exaggerates to sorao exteut.as do those who attempt to make people believe that her sex is oppressed and down trodden in America when everybody knows that such is not the fact. THIS lato census developed interesting facts in regard to the freedmen. The ta bles are not complete, but iu the states of Alabama, Delaware, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina, it is seen that the large plantations aro being gradually broken up, and that freedmen are becom ing tenant farmers. The rate of increase iu the number of farms was in South Caro lina nearly eight times, in Georgia nearly five times, and in Alabama considerably over three times as great between 1870 and 1880 as it was between 1850 and 18G0. In Florida the rate of increase was 52.6 per cent, between 1850 and I860, and 128.8 per cent, between 187U and 1880. Of farms rented for produce there is an aggregate in the six states of 135,785, as against 77,394 rented for fixed cash payments, while the aggregate number of rented farms of both classes is 213,170, as against 281,795 occu pied by the owners. Many of the freedmen have acquired homesteads of their own,but the mass, of course, are obliged to become tenant farmers, a necessary, if not the best probation for actual ownership. SEVENTEEN archbishops and bishops of Ireland have recently had a conference, at Maynooth on the land bill and the state of Ireland, and have issued a manifesto which cannot fail to have an iu portant influence in quieting that unhappy country. They considered it their duty to declare that the new land act is of great benefit to the tenant class, and a largo installment of justice, for whicb/the gratitude of the country is due to Mr. Gladstone and his government, and to all who helped them carry this measure through parliament. The bishops earnestly exhort their flocks to avail themselves of the advantages derived from the act, be lieving that, if rightly used, it will bring present and substantial benefits, and help them to obtain their rights, social and polit ical, which they justly claim. They also urge the- tenant farmers to use the means provided in the land act, and every other means in their power to improve the con dition efth laboring class. The bishops avail themselves of this opportunity to call on the clergy to guard tbeir flocks against all secret agencies ot violence and intimi dation, which can only come from enemies of the people. E magnitude of stock and produce gambling in this country is very much greater than many people suppose. The fact is that comparatively few stocks are brought outright. The business is nearly all done on margins. There are sold on the New York Stock Exchange daily an av erage of 350,000 shares of stock, the par value of which is $35,000,000. To purchase that enormous amount requires only $1,750,000 of actual cash. A person with $800 or $1,000 can purchase one to two hundrod shares of stock of tho par value of $10,0)0 to $20,0(i:t. The purchases for ac tual investment compared with the volume of business is small, probably not 10 per cent, of the whole. There is a cotton ex change in New York, where as much cot ton is sold in a week as is produced in the United States in a year. Futures are bought and sold for every month in the year. In Chicago and Milwaukee three-fourths of all the business done on the Boards of Trade if purely speculative. Futures are bought and told on margins. A margin of $300 to $600 will carry 10,000 bushels of grain. Anybody, with even- $100 or $50 can get •vki. A» matters are now conducted, it is not iMfeaanw talent that is required, but the talent of educated gamblers. ti&if ••*J:: A. P.

Seinl-Annual Report of the Inspectors on the Institution at St. I'ter—The Asylum Overcrowded—Various Suggestions »Iad. Drs. W. H. Leonard, Minneapolis, and C. H. Boardman, St Paul, the authorized inspsctora of the insane asylnm at St. Peter, latoly made the eecond of their semi-annual visits to that institution, and have submitted a report to the governor, of which a synopsis is herewith pre sented. The inspectors found that owing to the continued rains tho contractor engaged in rebuilding the east wing—destroyed bv fire, aa will be remembered—had been delayed and hampered, and in consequence tho evils of overcrowdrng were greatly felt. The building was full before the fire, and has as many in mates now as then, with scarcely half the room. Very perceptible and unpleasant odors aro noticeable somo of tijo wards, duo largely to their crowdod condition, and another evil, caused iu the same way, is the ill effect upon tiio excitablo patients. A stone building opposite the lower houso has been rented for the nso of employes, and it is in tended to ereet near tho kitchen a frame one story house which will accommodate sevor.tv patients. Tho need of a sower iu connection with tho lower houso is a crying ono and should receive instant attention. None of the einipieit rules of sanitary law can be observed when proper draiuage is impossible. The 20O-acre farm in connection with tho asylnm hasnroven profitable aud exceedingly advantageous, as affording a field for the employment ol harm less and convalescent inmatea. The physicians recommend most earnestly that more land be purchased or leased, aa thov deotu tho farm too small by half. At the time of their visit thore were 543 inmates, of which L'SG wero men and 254 women. Tho cases in which restraint bad been found necessary from July 1 to Sep tember 21 were reported at 100, and the ovorcrowdiug is to blame for the largo mim bor. Four-fifths of those requiring restraint wero women the maximum length of duranco was twenty days and tho minimum one hour. Of the 190, many apply to tho same person, and some patients have to bo confined habitu ally. Sinco the last report of the physicians there have been one suicide (by drowning) and two elopers, one of tho latter having returned to the asylum. The report concludes with a high tribute to tho efficiency of tho superin tendent and to the general good conduct of the minor officers and employes.

If two meu quarrel and on» shoots the other in heat of passion, the law says that is manslaughter. The remoteness of the unoolniK from th» mament of its conception fastens tho degree of malice the further you go from the couception to the shooting the greater tho malice that breaks the law. The law says that in the shooting of a man a few years or a few days af tor the conception the mind has a chance to cool, and therefore the act is deliberate. Malice in fact itepends upon the circumstances attending thehorn ide. Malice in law is mitigated in this case by the tacts and circumstances as set forth in these pages attending the removal of the president. I have none but the best of feeling personally toward the president. I always thought of him and spoke of him as Gen. Garfield. I never had the slightest idea of removing Mr. Blaine or any member of the administration. My only object was to remove Gen. Garfield in his official capacity as president of the United States to unite the Re publican party and to savo the republic from going ntc the control of rebels and Democrats. BLAIN E A N GARFIELD. LETTER OF THE FORMER ACCEPTING A CABINET POSITION. PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 6.—The Press to-mor row will publish tho letter of Secretary Blaine accepting the tender of the state department mado him by tho lato President Garfield, dated Washington, D. C, December 20, 1880. My Dear GarfleM: Your generous invitation to enter your cabinet as sacretaty of stato has been under consideration for more than three weeks. The thought had really never occurred to my mind until at our late conference you presented it with such cogent arguments in its favor, and with such wormth of personal friendship in aid of your kind offer. I know that an early answer isdesirable, and I have waited only Ions:enough to consider the sub ject in all its bearings, and to make up my mind de finitely and conclusively. I now say to you, iu the .same cordial spirit in which you have invited me, that. I accept the position. It is no affectation for me to add that I make this desision, not for the honor of the promotion it gives me in the public service. but because I think 1 can bo useful to the country and to the party: useful to you as the responsible lender of tho party aud groat!head of tho govern ment. I am influenced somewhat, perhaps, by the shower of letters I have received uruing me to ac cept, written mo in consequence of a mere unau thorized newspaper report that you had been pleased to offer mo the place. While I have re ceived these letters from all sections of the Union, I have been especially pleased and surprised at tho cordial and widelv extended feeling in my favor throughout Now England, where I had expected to encounter local jealousy and perhaps rival aspira tion. In our new relation I shall give all that I am and all that I can hopo to be freely and joyfully to your service. You need no pledge of my loyalty in heart and aud act. I should be falsa to myself did I not prove true, both to the great trust you confide to me and to your own porsonal and political fortunes in tho present and future. Your administration must bt mado eminently successful and strong in the confi dence and \ixi le of the people, not at all directing its energies for re-election and yet com pelling that result by tho logic of events and by tho imperious neces sities of the situation. To that most detir ablo consummation I fed that, next to yourself. I can possibly contribute as much influence as any other one man. 1 say this not from egotism or vain-glory, but mereiy as a deduction from a plain analysis of the political forces which have been at work in the country for five years past, which have been significantly shown in two great national conventions. I accept it as one of the happiest circumstances connected with this affair, that allying my political fortunes with yours, or rather for a time merging mine in yours, my heart goes with my head: and that I con vey to you not only political support but personal and devoted friendship. I can but regard it as somewhat remarkable that two men of tho same age, entering congress at tho same time, influenced by the same aims and cherishing the same ambitions, should never for a single moment in eighteen years of close intimacy have had a misunderstanding or coolness, and that our friendship has steadily grown with our growth and strengthened with our strength. It is this fact that has led mo to the conclusion embodied in this let ter for, however much, my dear Garfield, I might almiro you as a statesman, 1 would not enter your cabinet if I did not believe in you as a man and lovo you as a friend. Always faithfully yours, iS'srued] The WorthingtonAdvance. FREE THOUGHT, FREE SPEECH AND A FREE PRESS. THE SCHOOL APPORTIONMENT.

S Kiawr.w GUITEAU'S BIOGRAPHY. A FULL SYNOPSIS. The New York Herald has given OniJteau'ii authobiography in full The most notabp portion of it is as follows. During the time I was pressing my applicatidn for the Paris consulship, I called at tbe White House several times. I handed my card to the door-keeper, and he would takeit to the president. The reply came back on several occasions: Mr. Outteau, tho president says that it will bo impossi ble for him to see you to-day." I understood by tbe president's statement that he could not see me to-day, and that was tbe statement that he sent throuch his door-keeper several times, because lie was trying gracefully to get rid of Walker, the present consul. In one of my notes to the presi dent I asked him directly. 'Can I have the Paris consulate?' and tbe reply, as usual, came back: 'Mr. Guitoau, tho president is very busy and can not see you to-day.' These iuteiViews occurred several days apart, sometimes a week apart. They all occurred during the time I was presjing my ap plication for THE PARIS CONSULSHIP. The case was pending at the time I fchot the presi dent, and, as I have heforo slated, I confidently ex gected a favorable answer when tiicy had got rid of Mr. Walker. I understood by the president's state ment that ho could not see me. that he was trying in some way to get rid of Walker gracefully, and that as a matter of fact he intended that I should have it. My getting or not getting tho Paris consulship had nothing whatever to do with my shooting the presi dent. I shot him purely as a political necessity, under divine pressure, and it was only by nerving myself to the utmost that I shot him anoway. If he should recover, and I should meet him again I would not shoot him and now I leave the result wim the Almighty. In case the president had said I could not have tho Paris consulsnip I intended to go to New York or Chicago and open a law office and let politics go. I shot the president without malice or murderous intent. I deny any legal liability in this case. In order to constitute the crime of murder two elements must coexist: 1. An actual homicide, a. Malice: malice in law or malico in fact. The law presumes malice from the fact of the homicide. A G. BLAINE. Origin or a Familiar Quotation. How familiar some quotations are, and how little they lose apparently by our igno rance or forgetfulness of their source. For example, how often one hears "My mind to me a kingdom is," and how seldom in hear* ing it do we go back in thought to its origin. Epictetus was once visited by an orator, who on his way to Rome called upon the stoic to learn from him, as he said, his philosophy. Epictetus doubted his sincerity. "You will only criticise my style," said he, "not really wishing to learn principles." "Well, but," said the orator, "if I attend to that sort of thing, I shall be a mere pauper like yon, with no plate, nor epaipage, norland. "I don't want such things," said Epictetus, "and be sides you are poorer than I after all. Patron or no patron, what care I? You do care, am richer than you. I don't care what Caesar thinks of me. I flatter no one. This is what I have instead of your gold and sil ver plate. You have silver vessels, but earthenware, reasons, principles, appetites. My mind to me a kingdom is." A German scientist hag discovered that insane persons, placed in a blue glass room for a few hours, will become wonderfully •oothed and quieted by the influence of the brae glass. -*V MS. BRADLEY AS AN UMPIRE. The other day I went into Mr. Bradley's •tore. If I recollect aright, it was a day or so after the Fourth of July. Mr. Bradley is engaged in a large whole sale business, and generally scores of clerks are to be seen behind thd counter of his extensive store. But on the occasion of which I speak no clerks were visible. For bustle and busi ness the store was like a sarcophagus. Only Mr. Bradley was present. And Mr. Bradley, I must say, presented very disreputable appearance for a man his mercantile standing. One eye was covered completely by a green shade,, while the other exhibited evident marks of confusion in fact, a beautiful circle of black and blue encircled the optic. His arm was in a sl.ng, his nose was bloodied, and a pair of crutches were lean* ing against a dry goods box near by. To sum up, he had the appearance of a prise-fighter just returned from a hard foutcht contest in the ring •'Hello, Bradley!" saluted I "what ails you? Have you been the victim of a mil road accident?" "No" growled Bradley, "Met with a boiler explosion?" "No." "Caught in a thrashing machine?" "No." "Then why this general brokenupedness? Aud say, Bradlev.'' "Well?" "Where are all your numerous staff of intelligent and affable employes? Gone to a picnic?" Mr. Bradley growled some unintelligible, or nearly so, reply. The substance was, as near as I could interpret it, that all of his employes, he hoped, had gone to Hades. I must confess that I Was surprised at his words for, generally, Mr. Bradley is the kindest of masters, and universally respect ed by those who receive his wages. "What is the matter, Bradley?" I asked. He proceeded to bathe one swollen cheek with arnica from a bottle which was handy, and blurted out: "Do you like base-ball?" I said I did I considered it a very nice and healthy game. Until I had broken my nose, and a rib or so, I was passionately fond of base-ball. I am fond of it yet—at a distance The farther tbe distance, the greater my fondness. Mr. Bradley- remarked a remark which is not polite for me to repeat. I was really shocked at Mr. Bradley. "Blank base-ball!" said she with decided emphasis. Of course I was curious. "Why blank base-bull?" I queried. "I will tell you," was his answer. "But you must excuse me if I lisp, for four of my front teeth are knocked out, and my upper gum is Clicked. These accidents are not apt to give my voice a silvery or bell like sound." "Naturally not but proceed." "You know I employ nineteen clerks—or, athcr, I did employ them—all stalwart young fellows." "Yes." "And yon know Fourth of July was "Yes, I believe there was a general ru mor to that effect." "Well my nineteen lunatics—clerks, I should say—resolved to form themselves into two nines and play a game of base ball." "But two nines only made eighteen. What did the odd clerk do?" 'He is scorer--or teas scorer. He's a promising corpse now, I believe. A man with half a bat stuck into his head is not apt to live very long. But I won't digress. "The day before the butchery—game they called it—came off. a deputation of three called upon mo. They wanted me to be umpire. Feolishly, I said I would. If I had been wise, I would have had them ar rested. Being a bald-headed old idiot, I consented. "Next day I arrived upon the ground. The two nines were there. One was called the 'Comets,' the other tha 'Shootine Stars.' "The game began. "Tho Comets won the toss, and Manly, my cashier, went to bat. He hit a liner which was stopped by left field, and ran quickly to first base. Tho ball seemed to me to get there quicker than Manlv, and I said, 'Out!' "Maul) came backmtxd. 'Was that out?'eaid be. 'Yes,' I replied. 'No.it wasn't.' 'iEayit was.' 'In your eye,' replied Manly. 'You're a nice old umpire, you are.' 'M inly,' said I, 'I don't want any of your insolence. I'll discharge you.' 'Dischargo and be hanged!' he said. 'There's an old go*t in yonder field who would made a better umpire than you.' "That settled it. "I told Manly not to como to work the next day, and told the Comets to put a sec ond striker up. "They did. "The fellow knocked a fly to first base. First base muffed it and fooled with it, and was not sure whether or not he did have it in his hand when the striker reached the base. "How is it?" be called out. 'Not out—striker safe,' I replied. "First base was my book-keeper, Hardy, generally the pink of peliteness, but my decision did not appear to please him. 'You ought to get a pair of new eyes,' he said 'That was out, plain as day.' 'So it was cried the pitcher, who has been with me for ten years. 'Anybody but an old dotard could see it was out plain wasn't it, boys?' "The boys—the boys of his side—all said 'yes,' of course, and suggested as put ting up a wooden man as an umpire and my youngest errand boy, who was soaking out in the center field, said I ought to buy a piece of smoked glass to see through. I discharged him right away. "Then Mr. Merrill (he's red-headed, and gets mad easy), went to the' bat. He made a foul—I say it was a foul, and I know it —and I said it was out, because the catcher caught it. "'Foul—out!' I cried. "'What?' gasped Merrill. '"Foul—out!11 repeated. "'Do you call that a foul?' "'I do.' '"Mr. Bradley, you're crazy! It was not a foul.' "'Itwus.' "'It wasn't.' '"Don't you contradict me, Merrill.' •"I will, if you say that's a foul. You're a driveling jackass!' 'Here, you shut up!' said Bennett, my stock clerk, who was catcher and they all came in from the field. "Exactly what followed I cannot relato succinctly. Anyhow, Merrill said Bennett was a liar, and Bennett said Merrill was another. Which one hit first I do not know but, at any rate, a free fight ensued, and I was in the middle of it. "I was pitched over a fence, kicked into a ditch, jumped on, walked over, and carri ed for dead from the field along with the scorer, who, as I said before, has got half a bat into his head. "But I had my revenge, for I discharged every blessed mother's sou of them but I don't believe they care much about it, for all except Merrill are in the hospital." "Where's Merrill?'* ,. t^n Jail* A a *ttm*mmmmmm*m as I can find out he licked all the rest, and then tried to lick a policeman, who wanted to stop the fun. "Say. if you know a nice, quiet young fellow—in fact, nineteen nice, quiet young fellows—who never heard of base-ball, ana don't know what it is, let me know. I'll pay them their own prices.

RECORD OF CKIME. John Somen, convicted of the murder of A. Btusser at Atlantic City, N. J., in July last, is sentenced to be hanged November 25. Kind words from Rev. Talmage: "I should not wonder if in the great day when all secret things are revealed it shall be found that ho IGuiteauJ was the paid agent of the old hag of heU which sits making mouths at high heaven between the Rocky mountains and the Sierra Nevadas." The star route rascals made their appearance in the district court in Washington Tuesday and were the lions of the hour. Public sympathy in Washington is dearly with them. They are admitted to bail in their own recognizanoe and marched out amid admiring glances and ex pressions of crowds of friends. The tone of moral sentiment in Washington is low. Ai Jeffereonville, Ind., Ed. McDermOtt, a notorious character, killed John Keefe instant ly and fatally wounded Barney McCardie. McCardie cannot recover. McDermott is the son of A. McDermott, who shot his wife and baby and then committed suicide a few years since. Ed. McDermott is one of the most* des perate men in Jeffersenville. Eeefo was a worthy and respected young man. At Hernando* Miss., Edwin Thompson ar rested on a charge of stealing a mule, was ac quitted. He is tbe son of the late Admiral Thompson, of the British navy and grandson of the British admiral who led part of the forces under Nelson in the battle of Trafalgar. Lady Thompson sent several hundred pounds from London to a lawyer to defend her son who is said to have lived the life of a tramp several years. FIRES AMD OTHER GAS AI/ITES. The Caibolic college at Thorez, a Providence twenty-five miles from Montreal, was burned. Loss, $350,0i)0 well insured. At Bristol, N. H., a shock of earthquake was felt a little after midnignt. It passed from west to east, making a noiso like tho rumbling of a heavy train of cars, and shook buildings perceptibly. Tho fall floods eeem to bo near another alarming crisis. The rise from the Wisconsin, Black, Chippewa and Eau Claire rivers has reached Prairie du Chien, and the water is a foot higher than at the spring flood. Mills havo shut down and aro surroundedwith wa ter. The high water has subsided on all the upper tributaries except the Minnsota, which is spreading all over the flats near St. Paul, and must be doing great deal of insiduous dam age., though there is no such conspicuous sen sation as there was last spring. Firo broke out in the business part of the village of Pnlask N. Y., and several buildings on bath sides of Main street were burned. The entire business portion of the town is in ruins. The loss is over $200,000. Tho princioal losers are D. & J. N. Betts, P. B. Clark, Sal mon River hotel, Geo. M. Douglass, Pulaski National bank, W. L. Holli-s, S. W. Fuller A Son, C. C. Woods, Pulaski Democrat, A. N. Beadle. H. H. Lyman, D. B. Meachow A Son, Capt M. Liters, S. Jones and T. Box. The telegraph, express and postoffice were burned. Total insurance, $110,000. CURRENT EVENTS. Eli Perkins involuntarily unbuckled his champion belt when he read Senator Jones' statement that himself aud Conkling didn't mention politics. It is stated that Mrs. Garfield has put an end to tho doctors' dispute over tho treatment of the president by persuading Dr. Boyton not to print any further statement upon the subject. Senator Jones makes a statement that Wall street speculators need not look for any relief to tho money market from tbo treasury, as tho president had agreed that it would be very bad tasta to pander to the inflation that had been going on for many months past. Leonard W. Jerome of Now York has Bold all the fine horses iu his racing stables. Most of tno horses go to Minnesota. Mr. Kittson, a millionaire lumber merchant of St. Paul.bought the best ones. It was reported during the sale that Mr. Kittson had spent $500,000 for horses, colts and fillies in the last few weeks to send out to bis farm. Some excitement was caused at Cleveland Wednesday night by a report that Garfield's re mains had been stolen from the vault. It was subsequently learned that a carriage had been seen leaving the cemetery about midnight, and inquiry revealed tke fact that friends of the family had been to tho vault for the purpose of changing the remains from the old to a new casket Col. John II. Gibbon, Seventh infantry, will go east from Fort Knelling iu a few days on a month's leave of absence. He will be accom panied by his son, John Gibbon, Jr., who has been tendered an appointment as cadet at the West Point military academy by delegate Ma ginnis of Montana. The colonel will place his eon in Col. Simon's institute at Sing Sing, New York, for a little preparatory study, so that he may be ready to enter tho academy next June. Capt. Kemble of the eteamship Knicker bocker, from Vera Crnz and Havana, reports that during tbe night of the 27th L. Ferry Young a passenger, died. The deceased was a son tho late Brigbam Young. He was very weak when he came on board the Knickerbocker, and had been unwell for some time. Although tho best of treatment was given him, he died tho even ing after the vessel left Havana. The remains were buried at sea next day. At Annapolis, on Sunday night the fourth class of cadete, newly entered in the naval academy wore hazed unmercifully. Members ot the third class were suspected, and when tho matter was investigated, refused to divulge what they knew. Recently tho whole class, fifty members, was sent on board tho Santee. They had to take bedding and other articles, and will havo to live on the ship until further orders, not being allowed to speak to one an other. The attention of the secretary of the United States' alleged navy is called to the fact that the Russian imperial yacht Livadia has been condemned because its propensity to' roll is too great, and though not very violent, yet of a nature to continually expose tho crew to the lia bility to suffer from sea-sickness secondly, its rate of speed is comparatively slow thirdly, it is too weakly built and, fourthly, the materials used in its construction are of an inferior qual ity. The Livadia should be purchased and added to its peers of the United States navy. NEWS FROM WASHINGTON. President Arthur has sent a letter of resig nation as chairman of the Republican state committee of New York. The wealthy widow whom President Arthur is to make mistress of the Wbite House in said to be Mrs. Marshall O. Roberts. The board of managers os tho National Tem perance society have addressed Arthur an appeal NUMBER 7. to carry out temperance principles in bis official capacity. It is now said that the late president did not have full commaud of his faculties after Aug ust 12. On the other hand it will be remem bered that he discharged three of his doctors as late as September. Congress at the last session ordered the print ing, of 5,000 copies of tha report made in 1874 by Senator (now Secretary) Windom, on the transportation routes to the seaboard. This new edition, which was required to meet a very extensive demand for the work, wm be ready for distribution in the course of a few days. There is apparently a disposition in both parties to arrange the organization ot the sen ate by a compromise. Both republican and democrat caucuses will be held in Washington next Saturday. It is rumored that the coinci dence of the caucuses foreshadows a c- infer ence and an attempt to reach an agreement There is a rumor that E. A Rollins, ex-com missioner of internal revenue is to be made secretary of the treasury. The story comes by the sound of it, from New Hampshire. Mr Rollins is a relative of the senator of that name from New Hampshire, and a brother of District Attorney Rollins of New York, one of the pres ident's closest friends. Messrs Brady, French, Brown and Turner, of star route notoriety, have given bail for tbeir appearance to meet the charge of conspiracy filed by the government. The court required of Brady and Brown a bond of $5,500 each, and of Turner and French a bond of $4,000 each. As tbe extreme pecuniary penalty for conspiracy is $10,000, it will be observed that the bail required is adequate. As the star route prosecutions go on there will be a general weeding out of dishonest postmasters in the far western states and ter ritories. There are believed to be over 200 postmasters implicated in the star route frauds. They have been paid, as were the postmasters at Deadwood and Sidney, for certifying to the performance of mail service which was never performed. Arthur has not fully decided as to his cabinet appointments, as ho has been compelled to give much of Lis time lately to the disposition of private affairs. This much can be stated withpoaitiveness: Ho Las assured Postmaster General James aud Secretary Hunt that they can remain in his cabinet as long as they de sire to retain their positions, and he wishes them to remain in the positions they now hold. Both"of them will remain, A large number of letters have been received at the treasury department asking if the secre tary would de anything to relieve the stringen cy in the money market In the absence of the secretary the treasury officials are still inclined to the opinion that he will probably not take any steps at present other than the operations now under way, for it is not clear what he an do nor whether any measures he might in stitute would have the desired effect The secret service division of the treasury has received reports to the effect that two counterfeit notes, produced by telegraphic process, have just been discovered in circula tion, viz.: A $5 note en the Leicester National bank of Leicester, Mass., no bank or treasury numbers given also a $5 note on the First National bank at St Johnsbnry, Yt, charter No. 489, bank No, 325, treasury NaB120360. Tho notes are said to be poorly executed, and should be readily detected. In pursuance of the action of the public meeting held in Washington October 5, Justice Miller has appointed the following executive committe for establishing in Washington a na tional and international "Garfield memorial hospital," to the erection of which ho asks popular subscriptions from not only the people of the United States, but from tho world at large. The committee have full power to »st according to their own judgment to accomplish the object: Gen. W. T. Sherman, chairman Hon. J. G. Blaine, Wm. Windom, Gen. David G. Swaim, James Gilnllan, and a dozen others. The Chicago Times' Washington special says: It is alleged that already preparations are be ing made to make a second investigation in the treasury department, and that all of the papers showing the relations between the treasury and a certain prominent New Yorker have disap peared from the records ot treasury entirely. Secretary Windom's call for bonds last week was known to a prominent Wail street broker two days in advance of the call. Still worse than this, it can be Shown that Upton, assistant secretary of the treasury, is now a silent part ner in tho brokerage firm of H. D. Ccohe & Co. J. Stanley Brown states that it is President Arthur's expressed intention to continue at the residence of Senator Jones for some time. Tho president thinks the extra session of the senate will be brief iu duration, and umil that is over the president will remain in his present quar ters. After that it is probable that he will re move to the soldier's home unlil tbe White House repairs are fully completed. The presi dent positively declines to hear any applications for public office, and thinks the minor offices now vacaut should be filled by the heads of the various departments. Government officials are unaware of the whereabouts of Howgate, late of the signal ser vice. They believe that he is either in hiding or has left the country. It is known that he had somemonoy with bis brosers in New York, and his niistrese, Miss Bnrrill, recently raised $1,200 from a friend of tho captain's hero and took it to him in New York. The investi gation of his speculations is not completed, but it is known that he has stolen upwards of $200,000. He will bs indicted by the present grand jury as soon as the star route cases are out of the way. It is said that bis counsel know his whereabouts was reported some two weeks ago that they would produce him when he was wanted. Since the erection of the new building for the bureau of printing and engraving, half a mile from the treasury, there has been con structed a heavy carriage, almost burglar proof, the sides, ends, top and bottom all being mads of plate iron and "the single door in the rear heavily secured by a strong combination lock. It is understood that it has been decided to make use of this novel vehicle for the transpor tation of Guiteau from the district jail to the court room. The prisoner will be placed iu it and safely locked in, the key being retained at tho jail. He will then bo driven about day break to the court house without a guard, un less under a suspicion that ho mav be removed and a crowd gathers. At tho court house ho will be released by a duphcate key and placed iu a private room, where he will be closely guarded until the court meets, when ho will be called in to plead, after which ho will be recon veyed to jail in such a way as circumstances may determine. No estimate has as yet been made of tho ex pense incurred by the president's sickmss. It is thought that the grand total will foot up to a very iargo amount The various lienm will bo collected and presented to congress, aud an appropriation will be made covering tbe entire amount The bdl of tho Pennsylvania Rail road company will be a large item. It is stated that the cost of laying the track to Elberon was $G,000 while on*two occasions special trains wero furnished and the entire line cleared. The next big item will be tho doctor's fees. Tho amount is variously estimated. Dr Bliss' fee is stated to be about $25,000. whilo Drs. Hamil ton and Agnow will charge $15,000 each. Dr. Royburn will also receive a large feo. Tho other two doctors (Drs. Barnes and Woodward) wore, during tbeir attendance upon the presi dent, iu the employ of the government Wheth er they will receive any extra compensation will depend upon congress. FOREIGN FLASHES. Major-General Schofield was present at tho banquet in Paris given by the Prefect of Li moges to the foreign officers attending tha au tumn manoeuvres of the Twelfth Army Corps, and responded to a toast to the heads of tho states and nations represented. Tho Irish bishops in resolutions adopted by them at Maynooth college, say they cx\ ct their fioclrs to avail themselves of the advantages of the lanJ act and urgo tenant farmers to uso tho means provided in the act and every other means in their power to improve the condition of laborers. Patrick Egan has arrived a Dublin from Paris and visited "suspects." The Clara Mor ris land league has resolved not to pay rent until the land commiasioners have decided their test cases. Arrangements have been made to build wcoden houses for all tenants evicted. In the meantime the authorities have instructed the police to closely watch the movements of Redpatb. A dispatch from Petersburg. Natal, an nounces that orders to stop all movements of troops have been renewed, and that Gen. Sir Evelyn Wood will stop transport- to Simons Bay. It is believed iu military circles that the Boers will yield if firmness is shown. The correspondent doubts this and is convinced that the Dutch throughout South Africa will consider their claims. London cablegram: Fears are entertained, both here and at Paris, of a closely approach ing financial crash. Bankers and moneyed men here now admit the feeling of alarm,whose existence their course has already indicated.

A man can hardly be a good physician without having a considerable native share of scientific ability and he should also have much of the artist's sensibility to form, color, and expressive motion. The physi cian, besides actual accomplishments which he is likely enough to have quite outside his vocation, is often the most agreeable and well-informed man of the world in his very large circle. And everything con spires at present to compel or invite the widening of his horizon. To be a really good physician a man must be a psycholo gist. This does not mean that if he finds in a case of insomnia no obvious cause for the patient's disorder he should ask tho unfortunate man if he has anything ou his conscience—embezzlement, for instance. It is well known that Lord Eldon, when plain John Scott, eloped with the 11 dy whom he married, and that they were lov ers all their lives. While it was yet very early days with them, young Mrs. Seott fell ill in a strange village, and the local prac titioner was sent for. Having, afier the usual routine, failed to make out what was the matter with the beautiful lady, he said: "1 am afraid, ma'am, there is something on your mind. Ton are not happy with youi husband?" This was bad practice. Mrs. Scott had much spirit and natural elo quence and there was nothing the matter with Mr. Scott, who was both tall and ath letic but the muse will not sing the dis missal of that doctor. The anecdote only illustrates, in passing, the sense in which the physician must not be a psychologist. EEVIEW OF THE MARKETS. ST. PAUL FLOWB—Market firm.
