SAVANNAH, MISSOURI. CURRENT TOPICS. Giiboud's remains wore relumed in the Catholic cemetery at Montreal n the 16th. The removal of the colli n from the vault in the Protestant ceme tery, and its transfer., and burial were quietly performed, under the pro tection of a large force of police, forty of whom were armed with breech-loading rifles. Six regiments of volunteers, fully armed, were stationed in the immediate vicinity. The collin was placed in a bed of hardened cement previously prepared for it, and this was covered to a considerable depth with li quid cement, intermixed with scraps of iron and tin. There was a very large crowd gathered in the vicinity to wit ness the novel proceedings, but with the exception of some jeering remarks there was no attempt at disturbance. A sufficient guard of police was left to guard the grave until it became thor oughlv hardened. The ollieial St. Petersburg htzctl' ex presses the opinion that Europe was never in a more favorable position than now for the peaceful settlement of any difficult question.

The peace of Europe is firmly established in the mutual confidence and good understanding of the Powers and no danger of its disturbance ex ists.' 1 The trial of ex-Supervisor McDonald of the Revenue Department, at St. Louis, for alleged complicity with the Whisky King, was begun on the loth.

The average amount collected weekly was about $8,5U0, which was divided as follows: a given amount was first taken out for the pay of subordinates and contingent expenses, which was given to Mr. Leav enworth: the remainder was then di vided into live equal parts, of which witness (Megrue) had one part, Mc Donald one part, Joyce one part, and Leavenworth the other two parts, in trust for Win. McKee and Major Ford (at that time Collector of the District). For a portion of the time from :?100 to .$'."0(j per week was also set aside for Avery, Chief Clerk of the Revenue Bureau at Washington. During the fourteen months in which he participated in the "ring,"' witness testified that hisshare amounted to from S."i),OiU to .GU,0(tO. Alfred Devis, a di. tiller, testified that his payments to Megrue on account of the "ring" varied from $500 to ",000 per week. .Joyce had shown him letters purporting to be from Avery and Babeoek, assuring them (the distillers) of protection. Joyce, Fraser, Coneannon and witness were present when the records of his distillery, on file in the Collector's office, were burned to prevent future disclos ures.

Ti:. order to realize to the full the fun at tending the discovery of red ears, one hundred of these were scattered through out the winrow. All old huskers know what is the effect of the discovery of a red ear. The merriment broke out afresh as occasionally some one would capture the red ear and the traditional ; forfeit attached to the finding thereof. : The treasure was immediately wrapped up as a memento of the joyous occa sion. The husking continued about an hour. j and then the company was invited to a j substantial collation, such as was served to the bows and girls of New England one hundred years ago. This was a gratuity on the part of 11 r. and Mrs. Banks, and consisted of baked beans, brown bread, squash, apple, and mince pies, doughnuts, and cheese, with cof fee and sweet cider.
