Conspicuous among those institutions, of which Jay Cooke & Co. were the New York corre spondents, are the Freedmen's Saying and Trust Companies, organized all through the lt-te slaveholding States. This class of institutions seem to have done business almost exclusively with Jay Cooke & Co. In the list we find the following : Freedmen's Saving and Trust Bank of the District of Columbia.

LIFE AMONG THE ICEBERGS. Rescue Missing Portion of the Polaris Crew—Thrilling Account of Their Sojourn in the Frozen Regions—The Journey South in Their Frail Boats, and Final Rescue. Scotland (Sept. 20), Cor. New York Tribune.] The whaling steamer Arctic, Capt. Adams, has arrived at this port from Davis' Straits, having on board the men of the Polaris expedition, who were picked up by the whaler Ravenscraig, on the JJUtli ot o uiy. me men are u well, and show no marks of emaciation, such as might have been expected after their terrible experiences. The following narrative of incidents that occurred after the separation of the crew, is gathered from a conversation with several of the party : The Polaris had been leaking badly before the 15th of October, 1872, and her situation ultimately became so alarming that it was deemed advisable to make preparations to aDanaon ner. The determination to leave the ship was arrived at on the 15th of October, at which time they were in latitude 79. Some of the crew remained aboard, while others landed on the ice, and they began to get out stores, with the inten tion of taking everything they could need for a long sojourn in those frozen regions. Between 10 ana VZ o clock at night, while this work was proceeding, a severe gale sprang up, ana snow De gan to fall heavily, with strong, but variable winds. Operations, however, were continued, and, after untiring efforts, the boats were crot upon the ice. ana a large supply oi provisions muuju out. Suddenly the hawsers by which the ship was made fast to the ice, gave way, one snapping, the other tearing its anchor irom its loagmens on tne ice. This was about midnight. The anchor, in starting, tore off a large piece from the floe, with three men upon it, ana, as the Polaris drove past mem, tney cried out in an agony of terror : " What are we to do ?" Capt. Buddington shouted back that he could do nothmc lor tnem : tney naa boats and Drovisions. and must shift for themselves as best they could. A few minutes later those of the Polaris saw a boat launched and man ned by these men, making for the place where their comrades were stanonea. In a short time the storm and dark ness shut out every object from their view. The feelings of the men can be imagined, as with half the crew left to perish, as they supposed, in a desert of ice and snow, the . ship drifted away helpless, until at last she brought up at Life-Boat Cove. The prospect was now gloomy enough There seemed to be little prospect of their remaining iu the Polaris. She still leaked fearfully, and in her dam aged condition Buddington had no hope of getting anv further south witn ner. It was therefore determined to beach her, but the question was how that could be done. The wind being favora ble, an opening in the pack was finally discovered, and tho ship was bored through under canvas. Everything ap parently favored the work, but though the ship was only a few miles from shore it took twelve hours to get her close in. The next consideration was how to provide for the shelter of men on shore. All the timbers from be tween decks were torn out, provisions were deposited on the ice, the coal was removed, and everything useful was se cured. The walls of a house were tnen built of heavy planks, jointed to ex clude the wind, and the roof was made of sails. In such a home the long winter was passed. Some hfilr -wan rertftiveil from three Esaui- maux. who discovered the wrecked ship, and agreed for a few paltry presents to convey provisions over the ice from the vessel. They gave still more valuable aid by supplying skins for clothing, of which the crew were generally in need, for many of their clothed were worn out, and many more were lost. When the vessel broke awav. on the night of the 15th, the Esquimaux had plenty, and though they were filthy-smelling garments, the castaways gladly adopted tne lull .Es quimaux costume, oi lur trousers, coats, hats, and boots. Through the long dreary winter the men kept up their spirits remarkably welL The snow fell heavily, but it served to protect their frail habitation and make it more comiortabie. xneir arrangements were so complete that no visit to the ship was necessary before Jan. 27, when they went for a supply of wood. Fresh water was obtained in abundance by collecting pieces of ice bergs and melting them. Toward the end of winter Chester suggested that some means should be agreed upon to extricate the party from their perilous position. The provisions were gradu ally diminishing, and the fuel, of which only six tons hid been obtained from the ship, was nearly exhausted. The Polaris was still available for materials, and it was now proposed to build two boats. A survey by Chester showed that the lining of the cabin could be used, and this was accordingly stripped off. Dur ing the spring months, with the ther mometer 23 degrees below zero, and often in a blinding drift, the building of tho boats went on. The situation grew daily more discouraging, but the work was never relaxed, and the cour age of the men never failed. Advancing steadily, the crew were ready to depart by the end ol June, determined to pusn southward. Just at this moment, when everything was in readiness, they were alarmed by the appearance of the scurvy. Happily, however, the attack proved slight, and a plentiful supply of walrus liver, which they obtained from the Esquimaux, en abled them to avert the disease. When ever boats were launched they leaked a good deal, but the men determined to trust them, and,stowing aboardall their re mainingprovisions and ammunition, they said farewell to Life-Boat Cove. Ifnotper fectly tight, the boats proved themselves excellent sailors and remarkably easy to row, and on the first day the voyagers reached Sontag Bay. After remaining there a short time to regain their strength the party made for Hakluyat Island, where the expedition was brought to a standstill by a tremendous gale, which blew for three full days, with a continu ous fall of snow. For all that time im mense flocks of ducks kind of penguin species were encountered hero, how ever, as the men could easily take up their guns and kill ten of them at a shot, there was a plentiful supply of fresh provisions, which were thankfully received. Occasionally their tiny crafts were sadly beset, and it was feared they would come to grief, but they were among tho ice, and there was nothing to be done but to force a passage south ward at all hazards. After enduring many privations, and encountering perils from which their escape seemed almost miraculous, they succeeded at last, through great exer tions, in reaching Cape Parry. A few miles below the Cape, at Fitz Claressa Rock, an encampment was made every night. When the labors of the day were over, the boats were hauled upon a floe, and everything taken out, and the only hot meal of the day was pre pared. The apparatus employed in cooking was of the most primitive character. Each boat carried a quantity of rigging from the Polaris, and a cad of oil. With these a fire was made in the bottom of an old iron bucket. Tea was the only thing that could be made with such an apparatus. They state that the priva tions they suffered were not serious. Tne me was rougn, laDonous, and monotonous, but though dangers occa sionally presented themselves well cal culated to inspire the greatest fear, no serious accident occurred, and on the 21st of June the boats reached Cape York in safety. Mere they were again close beset with ice. On the 22d their troubles came to an end. A whaler was descried a few miles off, and the whole party was at once in a turmoil of excitement. A great fear seemed to take possession of them all at once that the ship might get away before they could make themselves seen, and they put lortn every enort to to push through the ice with the least possible delay. The vessel proved to be the liavenscraig, of JJundee, Japt. Allan. She soon saw their signals, and Capt. Allnn sent his crew to their assist ance, and took on board their enects and one of their boats, the other being left behind. Capt. Allan treated them, they say, in the kindest and most gen erous manner. Capt. Hall was regarded as peculiarly adapted for the great enterprise under his charge, and all lament his untimely end. As to the statement that the ship might have aided the party on the ice, all agree that it was impossible after the l'olaris broke adriit to learn even tne whereabouts of those left behind. Every effort was made to find them, but to no avail. The Sickness and Death of Capt. Hall A New York Herald correspondent interviewed Dr. Bissell, the surgeon of the Hall Arctic exploring expedstion, on the arrival of the Buddington party at Dundee, Scotland. In relation to the sickness and death of the chief of the expidition, Dr. Bissell said : " Since arriving here we find by Amer ican papers that several very silly and absuad rumors of a mischievous ten dency have been abroad. It is quite possible that the Government at Wash ington prefers that we reserve what we have to say for graver discussion, but I must emphatically contradict the state ment that Capt.- Hall died other than a natural death. Ma died of apoplexy. He appeared to be in perfect health when entering upon the voyage. I no ticed nothing unusual in his health up to the period of his illness. The rumor that he was poisoned is too absurd to be seriously entertained. The rumor may have been founded on the hallucination of the raving patient. The Herald correspondent adds Schumann, the engineer, says that Hall was in continual apprehension of being shot, but was not aware that any one member of the crew more than another excited his suspicions. Another phase of his mama was a determination not to eat or drink anything unless it was first tasted by some person. The tasting was mainly done by Hannah, the Es quimaux woman. When he rallied, and for a while recovered his wonted intel lect, he would say to Capt. Buddington, " If I die. you must still go on to the North Pole." He would say, "My last wish is that you strive to get to the North Pole. Don't let my death be a hindrance to the accomplishment of this great undertaking. The Milky Way. Eighteen million suns furnish the lights for the milky way, which is the greatest feature of our heavens. How far separate these suns may be we know not, but they are so far distant from us that light traveling with its incredible speed, is ages in reaching tne eartn, One astronomer said he had gone back in the milky way so far as would require 330,000 years for the transmission ef light. Whether the telescope has allowed the human eye to gauge it more or less, the fact stands that the bounds of creation are immeasurable as their eternal creator. Can rr be Tbub? Within the last few months a considerable number of persons have called upon Dr. Walker, the proprietor of the popular medicine known as Vinegab Bitters, and assured him that, in their belief, his preparation is an infallible antidote lor rum and tobacco. The minute details which have been furnished him forbid him to doubt the accuracy of the statements. This new claim of a great remedy to the confidence of the public will give a vast and well-deserved impulse to its popu larity. Heretofore the Bittebs have been recognized as a pure vegetable tonic and corrective, devoid of alcohol, and thoroughly adapted to the cure of stomach and bowel complaints, nervous disorders, bilious affections, muscular diseases, and, indeed, a majority of the ailments within the reach of medicine ; but if it will also cure the craving for Uquor and tobacco, philosophers, states men and thelogians ought to unite their voices in its praise.

It ts a sad thins to paaa through lite only half alive. Yet there are thousands whose habttna condition is one of languor and debility. They complain of no specific disease; they suffer no positive pain, but they have no relish for anything which affords mental or sensuous pleasure to their more robust and energetic fellow-beings. In nine cases out of ten this state of lassitude and torpor arises from a morbid stomach. Indi gestion destroys the energy of both mind and body. When the waste of nature Is not supplied by a due and regular assimilation of the food, every organ Is starved, every function inter rupted. Now, what does common sense suggest under these circumstances of depression? The system needs rousing and strengthening; not merely for an hour or two, to sink afterwards into a more pitiable condition than ever (as it assuredly would do if an ordinary alcoholic stimulant were re sorted to), but radically and permanently. How is this desirable obiect to be accomnlished? The answer to this question, founded on the un varying experience oi a quarter oi a century, is easily given.

Y Artillery Shots Fired by Pbussiak ' Guns in 1870-71. According to an offi cial account lately published at Berlin, the German field artillery fired 331,169 shots during the war of 1870-71. Uf this number 146,144 shots were fixed by heavy field batteries ; 123,804 by light field batteries ; 59,934 by horse batter ies ; 7,736 by heavy reserve batteries ; and 14,480 by light reserve Dawenes. To the total number of shots as given above must be added 4,460 shrapnel and 430 grape shots, so that altogether 357,237 shots were fired. The number of shots fired by the Prussian artillery in former campaigns was : 1813-14, 73,881 shots ; 1815, 18,086 shots ; 1864, 41,427 shots ; and in 1866, 36,188 shots. During the war of 1870-71, says the Vaterland, ot Munich, the Bavarian troops lost nineteen per cent., while the loss sustained by the Prussians was only fourteen per cent. The attempt to recover the treasure lost on board the Spanish ship Locadia, wrecked off the coast of Ecuador in 1802. has failed, and the joint Btock company organized for the purpose in San Francisco has just been closed by the payment by the stockholders of $5 a share to clear off the debts of the con cern. The Locadia had from four to five millions of silver dollars on board when she sunk, but only $500,000 worth was recovered, and many of the coins were worn almost out by corrosion and the action of the sea water. The loss in the enterprise is about $80,000. At one time tae stock was worth over 200 per cent. . One-haw the population of Paris consists of working people. There are about 80.000 servants and 115,000 pau- -ners. Kearlv 21.000 oatients are always in the hospitals, and four times that numberpass through them during the year. Hospitals and other institutions for the relief of the poor cost last year 22,346,000 francs. Conflict has been raging for years between the forces of the "Old School" nractice or poison ous drugs, powerful po tions and pills which have falsely been called Reme dies on one side and Mild Correctives on the other.

THE WEEKLY SUN is too widely 'known to require any extended recommenda tion; but the reasons which have already given it fifty thousand subscribers, and which will, we hope, give it many thousands more, are briefly as follows: It is a first-rate newspaper. All the news of the day will be found in it, con densed when unimportant, at full length when of moment, and always presented in a clear, intelligible, and interesting manner. It is a first-rate family paper, full of entertainingandinstructivereadingof every kind, but containing nothing that can offend the most delicate and scrupulous taste. It is a first-rate story paper. The best tales and romances of current literature are carefully selected and legibly printed in its pages. It is a first-rato agricultural paper. The most freeh, and instructive Articles on agricultural topics regularly appear in this department. ' It is an independent political paper, belonging to no party, and wearing no col lar. It fights for principle, and for the election of the best men to office. - It es pecially devotes its energies to the exposure of the great corruptions that now weaken and disgrace our country, and threaten to undermine republican. institutions altogether. It has no fear of knaves, and asks no favors from their supporters. It reports the faBliions for the ladies, and the markets for the men, especially the cattle markets, to which it pays particular attention. Finally, it is the cheapest paper published. One dollar a year will secure it for any subscriber. It is not necessary to get up a club in order to have THE WEEKLY SUN at this rate. Any one who sends a single dollar will get the paper for a year. THE WEEKLY SUN. Eight pages, fifty-six Columns. Only $1 .O a year, no discounts from this rate. THE SEJ1I-W1IEKIT SUN.
