NEW YORK. August 23,. 1881.
Where is it going to stop? I asked this
question several weeks ago when Morgan'~
Sons succumbed in financial collapse. Not
so unlikely a failure had occurred for years
--andi seer as it this was the
. ,f .as-- fian.eal -disasters
whichbegan with Ferdinand Ward. W
have almost begun to forget~that this noto.
rions rascal is still in Ludlow street jail,
In the whirl of our daily life in New Yorl
we have no time to think of any thing very
long. Even theearthquake was only a sen.
sation for an hour; people rushed to thei,
windows and looked out; Trinity's towes
stood erect and perpendicular; the great
bridge had not slipped from its moorings;
even the tall spire from which the new
philosopher of the Tribune looks down upon
a naughty world was as sraight as an ar
row pointing to the sky; so they ran back
to their soup, and except by comparing
notes of their sensations, the shaking up
that we received was soon forgotten. But
to return: I was saying that we were just
being lulled into sweet forgetfulness when
away goes the Wall Street Bank. The cause
is not dissimilar to one which occurred
about ten years ago, when the cashier of
one of the Wall street banks swept away
the entire capital. He was an exceedingly
nice young man, and as an evidence of his
nicety he parted his hair in the middle.
The directors of this particular bank had
so much confidence in this very nice young
man that they would not insult him bylook
ing over his accounts; but one morning
these sleepy old gentlemen woke up and
the capital of the entire bank was gone,
and the nice young man was gone too, but
they caught the nice young man in Canada,
and he was not so fortunate as Eno, for
they brought him back and sent him to
State's-prison, from which he was released
a fetgainths ago.
The-Wall Street Bank was just such an
other case. It had been in'existence in one
shape and onother nearly fifty years, and
if not the staunchest, was at least one of
the oldest banks in the city. Mr. Dickin
son, the thieving cashier, was the soa-in
law of one of the principal stockholders,
and himself a member of a very wealthy
and influential family. His stealings have
extended over a period of several years,
and will amount in the aggregate to half a
million of dollars. The knowledge of this
defalcation has caused dismay to many
important houses,.and will undoubtedly
bring financial ruin to some.
We are told, when we inquire, that it has
been lost in stock gambling, and the stock
gambling house where this stolen money
was lost is one of the principal features of
Wall street. It is true it stands on Broad
street, but in financial technicality it is all
Wall street. Of the millions lost to this
country in the past few years, the great
body of it has been lost among the gam
blers of Wall street, in the New York Stock
The New .t World thought the release
of Billy MoQI06V a ft subject for one of its
abominable cartoons, but Billy MGlory,
infamous asbe was, has never inflicted a
tithe of the ~aisry lad ruin on his fellows
that hese Wallstreet gamblers have. Num

One of the healtful s of the times -is
that the intolerable -4 he Salvatiost
Army, is gradually dwindling away in New
York and Brooklyn. A few months age
their street parades were forty or fifty
strong. One night last week I met a halle
lujah. company on the street, and there
were only six all told. The two Salvation
lasses who were beating tambourines looked
more like street tramps. than gospel dis
pensers, while every one of the males looked
like hopeful candidates for the peniten
tiary. Why it is that this nuisanee has been
tolerated is a mystery. Every time they
appear upon the streets they attract a crowd
of gaping ruffians and create a riot. Let
us hope that the Salvation Army, with its
disgraceful mummery, will soon be among
the things of the past.
If any one imagines that Governot St.
John is going toride into the W_
on a Prohibition car, he would y
disabused of that idea if he could seen
the parade of the Liquor Dealer? and
Brewers' Associations in Brooklyn, theCity
of Churches, on Thursday, August 14" "The
procession was fully two miles ing said
the horses alone, exclusive of the tiragob
they drove, and the costly freight of beet,
ale, gin, rum, brandy, etc., etc., -weie
worth over a quarter of a million of dollsa.
All the liquors beneath the sun were rep
resented, from the vodki of the Rue
sian to the sacki of the Chinese. Water
found no place in the entertainment ex
cept as a medium for washing out their beer
vats and a basis for the beer. In its origi
nal corrupt state, full of microbes and
other pestilential animalcuhle, no sensible
anti-prohibitionist would think of endan
gering his life. You hate no idea how afraid
they are of microbes, and if the microbe
only waits till he gets irto some of these
anti-prohibition stomachs in a drink of
cold water, he will be starved to death.
This is all very well for the rum drinkers,
but it is mighty hard on the microbes.
Since the shaking up that we received
from the friendly earthquake, fiats in the
fifteenth and sixteenth stories of our mod
ern houses have been at a discount. A fe
male friend of mine, who only lives in the
eleventh story, says she felt as if she had
been shaken on the top of a bean-pole.
Now while this experience is novel, it is
not pleasant, especially when examined
from the roof of a fourteen-story house.
The idea of going to bed at night almost
in companionship with the stars and waking
up in the morning to find yourself landed
in the Cellar is full of the most- unpleasant
Another woman has entered a suit for a

aged. A wealthy widow ran off with him.
The original owner of the property wants
the worth of the goods, when they were in
first-class condition. The injured wife
wants $20,000; the uninjured widow says
he is not worth 20,000 cents. There cer
tainly is a wfde difference as to his. value.
Let the courts decide between them.
Election matters are hot, hotter, hottest,
with a chance of becoming hotterer yet.

with their foul and bloody history, and go

Geneva, at the opposite end of the lake,
is a flourishing city of over 60,000 inhabi
tants and is reached by rail froth Lausanen
in about two hours. It is the largest and
most prosperous city of Switzerland and
although possessing little of interest in
itself, is associated with many distinguished
names in history.. Calvin, Rousseau, Mad
ame de Stael, Sismondi, d'Aubigne and
many others resided here. On Champel
Hill, Michel Servetus, a Spanish physician,
was burned at the ~ptake by Calvin's order,
for having dared to Write a treatise on the
Trinity, in which he differed from the big
oted reformer. The city is a favorite re
sort for Americans and in fact is quite
oosihopolitan in its character, almost all
nations being represented on its streets.
Early one morning we take train ftClfa.
Geneva for the Mt. Cenis route into Ita.:
We pass through a mountainous- reion,
abounding in lovely views and wild scenery
and after riding 125 miles reach .Modane,
on the Italian frontier. Just beyond
Modane we enter the Mt. Cenis tunnel,
which was completed fourteen years ago
after thirteen years of work, at a cost of
$15,000,000. It is eight miles in lengthe 9
feet high, 26 feet wide and about 4000 feet
above the pea and 3500 feet below the sum
mit of the mountain. Our train occupied
just twenty-seven minutes in passing
through its gloomy depths. Beyond the
great tunnel, the wild, barren mountains
tower high above the narrow valley down
which we speed, and numerous spurs of the
range necessitate dozens of smaller tunnels.
We reach Turin late in the afternoon and
after a few hours spent in this modern
Italian city, which was the capital of Italy
from 1859 to 1865, we go onto Genoa,
where we pass the night: Genoa, "La
Superba," is familiar to .every American
school boy as the home of Columbus. It
was an important city under the Romans,
a strong commercialrepublicin the middle
ages and has now a population of 17,000. It is
built on the seaward slope-of the hills fac
ing the harbor and from some-points of
observation its marble palaces and superb
location seem to merit itd title of" The
Proud;" but seen orom within; its narrow
streets and crooked and devious ways are
rather disappointing . : ig wlling to se.a

tion for over six centuriea. The echo~of
the Baptistery is one of the most marvel
ously beautiful in' the would, its circular
form anddome-shaped roof repeating the
sounds with a peculiar sweetness.
North of the Cathedral anm Baptistery is
the Campo Santo, an enclsoed corridor con.
taining on its inner walls many qdaint
frescoes of the early schools. In the eyes
of the faithful this is peculiarly "holy
ground," as when the Crusaders finally
abandoned Palestine in 1260 they brought
with them over fifty ship loads of earth
from Mt. Calvary for this cemetery.
Within the enclosure are monuments to
many noted men of Pisa, as well as several
Greek and Roman sarcophagi. Among the
frescoed, the "Triumph of Death," of the
fourteenth century, is of espedal interest
as showing the crude ideasof those early
ages. At the base, the bodies,of, the dead
lie injheaps, including kings `nd queens,

Gen. R. B. Elliott, a colored man who
will be remembered by some of ourreaders
as one of the Beattie stump speakers who
took part in the campaignin Ascension and
adjacent parishes two years ago, died in
New Orleans on the 11th inst., of malarial
fever. Gen. Elliott's career was remark
able, considering his color. He was a na
tive of Massachusetts, and a graduate of
the famous Eton College, England; learned
the printer's trade and published a paper
at Charleston, Mass.; studied law; removed
to South Carolina and entered the political
arena, becoming Speaker of the House of
Representatives, a member of Congrees
and subsequently Attorney General of that
State; came to New Orleash a few years
ago and held the posifioniof Special Agent
for the Treasury Dtrtment, but was re
moved shortly after the Congressional cam.
paignof 1882. He then reesumed the prac
tice of law in partnership' with. T. De.8.
