"The text of our associated press dis patches from "Washington this morn ing, are at first glance contradictory, hut can be reconciled readily into a ilonblc assurance of peace. "We Tiave iterated contradictions of the first dis patch in regard to its report of the stoppage of naval preparations; but we have no contradiction of the statement that a settlement of the Yirginius dif ficulty cannot be had for many months. This quiet announcement of diplomatic delay, hardly accords with the tenorof official expressions at "Washington for ihe last three weeks, and may bo none he less true for that reason. In war, .finances and politics, Grant has been ibut the creature of circumstances, without a fixed policy in anything. "The blowing away of this war-cloud, lowever, is not likely to s top the naval preparations whose necessity was first lcmonstrAled to our mere pleasure seeking, money-grabbing Administra tion Ijy the almost presence of war. Yhat should be stopped, if the emer gency has passed, are the jobs given out to war contractors; let the Govern ment yards, which have to be support ed any way, be made useful by contin uous and steady employment, until we have a navy commensurate with our own coast, before annexing Cuba. A curious feature of the situation is that up to this hour (midnight) the State Department at Washington does not seem to know whether or not Cas ttelar's so-called republic has merged into a military dictatorship under Se rano. So much for Sickles being on such intimate terms with the Sladrid junta. Just imagine British statesmen endeavoring to conduct the affaire of the nation through a threatening crisis, and affording such samples of Boetian ignorance. Another item of interest is the sug gestion of a reference of the Virginius matter to the German Emperor for ar bitration. True, this suggestion is made only to be denied: but that is a trick often resorted to by European di plomats for fecb'ng the public pulse or paving the way for the adoption of the very policy disclaimed.

Universal Disgust. Lkavenwoijtii, Ks., Nov. 1o. There are fourteen daily newspapers in Kansas, thirteen of which have squarely repudiated the action of Gov. Osborn in nominating Hobt. Crozier to the United States Senate. The onlv paper that defends the action of the Governor is the Commonwealth, of Topcka, edited by Postmaster Henry King, Public sentiment almost unanimously con demns the appointment as a Caldwell vic tory. Senator Ingalls left for Washington this afternoon. II. . Gillett, at whose sug gestion the Governor apiointed Crozier, went with him. It is understood Crozier is not a candidate for re election, and that the contracting powers agree to make him United States District Judge in Delaliay's place, Gillett, Caldwell, Smith & Co. agreeing to aid Osborn in his election to the United States Senate. Crozier, it is understood, goes to Washington with Judge Delahay s resignation in Ins pocket, to he used m case it will do him any good. It is generally believed Senator Ingalls had nothing to do with the appointment of Crozier and that he, with the balance of the delegation, will not aid in carrying out the agreement, which is so dishonorable to the State asd nation. The members of the Legislature from Leavenworth county did not ask and did not know that the Gov ernor intended to appoint Crozier. There is general disgus'. among all classes of citi zens at the appointment, except with the immediate personal friends of Caldwell. The five daily papers in Leavenworth, the home of Govl Osborn and Robert Crozier, agree in denouncing the appointment as unwise. II The Louisiana Convention.

It. is estimated that French Canadians liave returned to this nrovince from the United States during tV.e past three weeks, owing largely lo stonnage ol mauutactones. a large pro nortion of them have, left for Western The Kcportof the Comptroller of Cur- rencj i t Washington. Nov SSi'riie forthcom ing report 6f the Comptroller of the Cur rency will contain the following on the subject of interest; hi my last annual re port I referred briefly to the evils resulting from the payment of interest upon depos its, and my predecessors have lrequentlv referred more at length to the same sub ject. JThe difficulty has been tliat the pro posed legislation by uongress upon this ubject would apply only to national Banks. The ell'ect of such legislation would be to bring State banks and savings backs organized bv authority of different States in direct competition' with National Banks m securing accounts ot correspondents and dealcrsi The National banks will be dciirdus of retain ing their business and the more unscrupu lous would not hesitate to evade the law by offering to make collections throughout the country free of charge, to buy and sell stocks without commission, and to redis count paper at low rates. The proposed action of the Clearing House in the city of New York if adopted by Clearing nouses ol the principal cities ot the union, would do more to prevent the payment of interest on deposits than any Congressional enact ment. But the evils resulting from the payment of interest on deposits arc by no means confined to city banks, it may be safely said that this custom which prevails In almost every city and village of the Union, has done more than any other to demoralize the business of banking. State banks, private hankers and associations under guise of eavings banks, everywhere offer rates oi interest upon deposits which cannot safely be paid by those engaged in legitimate business. National banks, desirous of retaining the business of their dealers, also make similar offers, and the result is not only an increase of rates of interest paid by business men, but as a consequence investments in unsecured leans, bringing ultimate loss both upon shareholders of the bank and depositors. The kind of legislation needed is that which shall apply to all banks and bankers alike, whether organized under the na tional currency act. or otherwise. A law prohibiting the payment of interest on de posits by national banks will have little effect, unless followed by similar legisla tion under authority of the different States, and there is little - hope that such legislation can be obtained. The national currency act, which was passed during the war, provided for a tax of one half of one per cent upon all de posits, and subsequent Internal Hevenue legislation extended this tax to all deposits made With State banks and Individual bankers. This was essentially a war tax, and should, in my judgment, be repealed with other similar internal revenue taxa tion, and I recommend, if legislation is proposed on this subject, that the law be so amended as to repeal this tax so far as it applies and demand deposits, and that an increased rale ol taxation lie miiKMOd uni formly upon all deposits which, either di rectly or indlrectlv, are placed with banks or hankers with the oiler or expectation of receiving interest. Such legislation, f rig idly enforced, will liave the effect not only to reduce tbe rate of interest throughout the country, hut will at the same time pre-. vent the illegitimate organization ot saving banks, the organization ol winch should lie allowed only on condition that the savings of the people shall be carefully and prudently invested and the interest arising therefrom, after deductiug reasonable expenses, distributed from time to time to depositors and to no otherperson whatsoever. The Act of March ;5, 1800, authorizes the appointment ol a receiver, if any officer, clerk or agent ol any nation al bank shall certify any check drawn uion said bank, unless the jierson or coniiny drawing said check shall have on deposit in said bank at the tune said check is certified an amount of nioney equal to the amount specified in said check. Receivers have been appointed for the National Bank of the Commonwealth, New York and New Orleans banking associations, during the past vear for violations of this act, and it is the intention ot the comptroller here after rigidly to enforce this act whenever he is satisfied ol such violation. The Comptroller renews the connnenda tion tliat twenty-five millions national bank circulation be withdrawn from the Eastern States havingan excess and distrilj uted among the Southern and Western States, which are deficient. The First National Rank. In the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, to-day, an order was passed authorizing the receiver of the First Na tional Bank of Washington to sign a prop osition making E. A. Rollins Inistce, with consent of creditors, as heretofore submit ted by Jay Cooke & Co., unless good cause to the contrary be shown uy the proper parties by next Tuesday. The application was made on the sworn petition oi tne re ceiver, and bv direction of the Comptroller of Currency, after consultation with the Secretary and Solicitor of the Treasury. The matter rests by law in the direction of tile receiver, and the Comptroller s order is deemed to be final. New York, Nov. 25. The Associated banks hold $34,885,000 legal tenders, an in crease of $5,000. Postponing Good Resolutions. At a meeting of the Associated banks thi evening a full representation being present action on the late report of the Committee of Nine, was postponed for sixty days, and the committee discliarged. The whole sub- iect is again to be referred to a new com mittee to be appointed. The Chairman of the Clearing House Association has ap pointed the following new committee : v H. Kitchen, of the Park Bank; II. F. Vail of the Commerce; D. C. Hayes, of the Union; Richard Berry, of the Tradesmen: George W.

A buoyancy in stocks was occasioned by telegram from Wellington that both the President and Secretary of the Treasury would recommend to Congress that the $44,000,000 reserve be made part of the permanent circulation of the country, that the reserve would be heavily drawn upon this week. It is reported that the onniipii matters have been privately adjusted. The susiended Bauk ot the Common wealth will pay a dividend to depositors, of 30 per cent, m December. Clews Co. The Times says the fact is well authenti cated that the banking firm of Henry Clews & Co. having effected satisfactory arrange ments with most of their numerous credi tors, contemplate a full resumption of busi ness within a few weeks. The presentation of the affairs of the house made to creditors has averted any unfavorable action. The house has resources and opportunities to resume to recover its extensive business, and-with a reasonable extension of time, to pajffiilly 100 cents on the dollar. Th Ranks to Paddle their own Canoes. The Post says of to-day's action of the Clearing House: The results of the meet ing were the defeat of the old Committee of Nine, and of the attempt to make the Clciring House a central power, having legislative functions. It is now left with each bank to manage its own business and to abide by the results of such manage ment. Railroad Extension. PoUGiiKEErsiE, Nov. 25.
