The story of a caucus ol' Democratic politicians at the Wbtte Sulphur Springs is a fabrication which never bad any basis of truth. Politicians go to Hie White Sulphur Springs, just as tbay go to Saratoga, Newport, or Long Branch; but tlio an nouncement of a speoial assemblage or conference there is an unquali fled falsehood. Senator Ransom, of North Carolina, and Representatives Casey Young, l'rootor Knott, Governor Walker and T. T. Crittenden are now in the oity, and they all say they know nothing of the pretended conference or political movement, and regard It as a myth. It is believed thai not one of tbe candidates for Speaker will visit the White Sulphur this summer, though the general company promises to be large THE BRITISH MISSION.

Barker, grand sou ol the late Commodore Tan uei bilt, who is accused ol stealin,- Miss Lizzie Week's watch and locket, valued .., tllUl iva- no lir a v a m i n n , i a v , ...... u, ,w. ... 01 1 iiiuiu ,i j to 1 - day. Barker is n young man of good ad dress and appearance, and has grown up in. a wild and careless manner. His UiotUer, who is now Mrs. L.iiiue. iiarlutt j f 4tt. . married a second time. Is a daughter of tbe late Commodore Yanderbilt, and is at present traveling in Europe. Be ad mitted his guilt aud has given up tho Sawn ticket tor tbe watch, anu toe tatter as been recovered. Barker waived an examination and was accordingly looked up in default of $100 bail. Miss Weeks says she will press tbe charge against him. 9be is a young and pretty woman and halls from Chicago. She says that sbe had been acquainted with Barker two weeks. Sbe also says that she had been approached by one of his friends to induce her to leave the oity and not appear ag.ilnst him. After Barker bad been looked up, H. J. Streiter iulormed the Justice that youug Barker had stolen four over coats, one pair troweers, a valuable meerschaum pipe and revolver Horn his room. Win. May, cousin of F ed. May, of Bennett-May duel notoriety, said Barker had stolen a gold chain and locket from his room. Tuese gentlemen however did not prefer charges, but in timated it was possible they wouid ap pear before the Grand Jury. The de tective who made tbe arrest says it was a d.fflcut matter to get the tiling fine against Barker, but when be openly ac cused him he made a lull confession. He has also learued that youug Barker has been engaged in oiber tiieits, the Ylotims all claiming to be his personal Iriends. The prisoner has been em ployed at different limes by his uuole at the Grand Central depot, and is said to have been so untrustworthy that his services were dispensed with. The Telegraph Fight. The contest between the Western Union and Atlantic & Paclttc Telegraph Companies was presonted in a new light yesterday in tne supreme Court Cham bers, before Judge Bustbrook. Counsel, on behalf oi Receiver Jewett, ol the U,ne Railroad company, asked that the Court should instruct the Receiver what course he should pursue in choos ing between the two Telegraph Com- S antes for the service ol the road. The eceiver believed a contract with the Atlantic & Paciflo Company would be much more beneficial to the interests of the mortgages, aud although he was aware of bis duties as Receiver, yet this was a matter of suoh moment he desired that the responsibility rest with tbe Court. Thereiore he asked instructions, at tbe same time setting tonn plainly tbe beuefits that would accrue by ac cepting a proposition of tbe Atlantic & Paciflo Company. Considerable argument took place. Judge Bustbrook took tbe papers, re marking that one of tbe questions seemed to be whether the Western Union Company bad acquired any title along the line of the Erie Road, on ground Owned by tbe Erie Company.

Ol the total acreage ol the country, including mountain, waste and water, one.hall, or 10,000.000 acres, is in grass or pasture. Last year there was an increase of 07 40:1 acres iu grass. Some counties, especially on the eastern side of Ireland, have 00 per oeut. of their acres under grass. Within ten years a decrease has taken place of more than 250,000 acres iu crops. The hold ings 01 uo" acre have decreased 23 per cent, since 1831. These figures, it is said, point to tbe existence of a more sub stantial farming class than formerly, tbe average yield of wheat in 1876 tar ex oeedea that of any of the previous nine years, being 17 aWt. to the aero. There were In December last 535,084 horses in Ireland, or 8,732 more than in tbe previ ous year, cattle numbered 4.1L7 440, an increase 01 2,162.

Dean M'Manus, parish priest 0. L inden, to bring iuto Court the body ol Catherine Grim js, thirteen years of age, daughter of Charles Grimes, a Piotesl ani, wuose wile, a Human Catholic, was dead. Mr. Herou, Q.C., ou behalf ol Dean M'Manus, applied for a postpone ment iu order to enable further iuqulrie. to be m-tde into the cuavactor of tue lather. Mr.. Heron said that originally there was au alii tavit uiadt by tbe, lather stating that tbe child had been hi ought up a Protestant; mat, with his authority, sbe bad been brought first to Dublin aud then to an orpbanago at Clildeu, County Galway; ana that she bad been aouuoteu irum the orphanage, the affidavit obargiug that she kad been abducted by Dean M'Manus and other persons. It also went into detail about tne gui oeiug sent to the Work-house and tbe guardi ans refusing to support ber. In answer to the affidavit tbe ouild and a number of others made affidavits, and the child swore that sue had been brought against ber will to the orphanage; that she there had been treated wltu cruelty ; that she tiad attempted to say In public Ro man Catholic prayers like "Hull Mary;" that sbe had been required to eat meat on Good Friday, whereupon sbe refused, and bad suffered imprisonment una starvation; tout ol 'her owu accord sbe escaped through the window ol this or phanage, and was found on the road by some persons; aud tney uot knowing what to do with iter Drought uer to tne union. Mr. Porter objected to tbe post ponement, but said, il it were granted, the court ought to allow inn: to read the affidavits on the other side, or, if not, should make an order to prevent the publication o! the ex parte statements Just read In court. Tun chief Justice: Let It be understood that tue statements made 111 this court to-day by counsel 110m affidavits should not be published. Mr. Justice Fitzgerald observed that would be a very exceptional order to make. Mr. Porter replied that the oil -oumstances were exceptional. Mr. Jus tius Barry thought it would be one of the most extraordinary things done iu this court lor the last ceutury. Tbe 1 hlel Justice said that perhaps it was hardly called tor by the gravity ol tbe circumstances, and it was better not to say anything about it. Tue case was theu adjourned. A Rumor Contradicted.
