justment of the debt of the Com
monwealth. The latter pronoun
ces the adjustment by the funding
bill as unjust, inequitable, onerous
and calculated to impair the com
mercial and industrial interests of
the State, and provides for the ap
pointment of a joint committee of
five to devise some plan ot legisla

creditors, having due regard to the
losses 6nstaiue"d by the State during

ple. INFLATION IN THE HOUSE-
After long and tedious debate
before the country, the House of
Representatives on the 23d voted
squarely and overwhelmingly in
favor of inflation, lixing the volume
of Greenbacks permanently at
5400,000,000. The old limit va
356.000,000, with ; a reserve ot
$44,000,000. Of the latter the
Secretary of the Treattiry issued
20 millions during the panic, and
quite an vtfjrt was made, first to
return to the 356 millions atid next
to adhere to the present volume of
3S2 millions. It has been argued
by Nev England and the Eastern
States that to increase the curren
cy volume would leave no more in
circulation, but the West and South
failed to see the force of the jirgu
menr, and they carried the day. It
seems evident that an increase
would make money m re abindant
and tend to weaken values The
debtor would find it easier to pay
and creditor easier to collect. If
S'tch effect should follow, the infla
tionists will have done something
towards squaring the accounts of
the country and thus equalizing the
distribution of money.

were instantly despatched from the

sadly thinned by the fight i;g of these

A STKANGi: IIISTOIIY.
A Motlvrii Kip Van Winkle, mi
nus the Sleej.
On last Sunday an old gentleman
eutereii the ears at t-abula oi' the train
coming north, and in conversation
with u icliow-iiasseiijjer confided lo
him au mteiesiuii; portion of bis his
tory, which is as follows: Some time
previous to the late war he purchased
a farm nearGieeii Island, paying half
tlie purcha-t money down, ami mar
i ied a widow, who was also his second
wife. When the war began he eiitertd
tlie army ai.d in oiii of the hotly eon
tested battles lost a leg, for which, up
on returning home he sulwtituled a
cork limb. His last union was blest
with several ch Mien, and all went
along smoothly until the year IstitJ,
when he and his wife began discussing
the virtues of their former spouses,
which produced a serious quarrel,
ending by the wife driving him lrom
home. Like Kip Van Winkle, he
k'ssed his children and departed with
out uue word of complaint or reproof.
From his own threshold, he wandered
over almost every portion of ihe world,
and for eignt years his family nei'er
received either letter or message from
him. On Saturday, when he took the
ears at Saimla, he was within a few
miles of his old home, from which he,
too, had never heard a word since t he
day he left. Ou the train he met an
olJ acquaintance, who informed him

The V udcrwood-McVoiAli Case.
Mr McVeigh yesterday received
from his lawyer in Washington a tele
gram informing him that the Sup
reme Court o the Uuileil Mates hail
dismissed the writ of error granted
some time auo to Judge John (J. Un
derwood. This writ of error was to
the Virginia Court f Appeals order
ing. Underwood to surreder Me
Veigh's house. We do nt know
Whether the writ was dismissed upon
a suggestion of the- death of Judge Un
derwood o because his heir decline to
prosecute tbe suit. In either ease, Mr.
McVeiah will probable soon come into
the possession of the valable mansion
outofthe osseKsioii of which he has
been so long unjustly kept. Rich
