Everywhere throughout the coun try, confidence seems to be reviving', since the wise financial policy of the Republican party has brought green backs almost to par with gold, and restored stability to the currency. "With gold only J to J per cent premium, we have practically reached resumption of 6pecie payments, and removed one great cause of our financial troubles, viz: the fluctuat ing, uncertain value of money. Cap italists can now invest their means in business enterprises without fear of losses by fluctuations in the value of the currency. We have reached liard pan" at last, and have now a solid foundation to build upon. From this time on, if Congress will only let the finances alone, we may confidently look for a slow but steady improvement in business, and a grad ual return of "better times." Our exports of produce and man ufactures to foreign countries still largely exceed our imports, so we shall have no balance of trade against us to drain us of our gold. On the contrary, gold and silver are flowing in from Europe to pay for our ex ports. Our crop prospects were never more encouraging, and should war break out between England and Eussia, (as seems probable, though we hope peace will be preserved) there will be an increased foreign de mand for our produce at higher prices, and a revival of our shipping interests, which will greatly hasten the return of prosperity. Another encouraging sign of im provement in business is the large increase in railroad earnings of the past six months over the corres ponding period of last year. Anoth er is the advance in the value of rail road and other stocks in the East ern markets, which amounts to from 10 to 40 per cent, as compared with a year ago. On the whole there is everything to indicate that our coun try has passed through the worst of the financial storm, and that the clouds are beginning to clear away. Let everyone thank God, and with renewed courage, strain every nerve to help on tho coming of better times, by industry, economy, pru dence and honesty, and we may con fidently hope for the Divine blessing upon our efforts, and look forward to a season of business prosperity such as our people have not known for many years. Here is a passage from Secretary Sherman's last interview, which should console the doubting. Gen eral Ewing had asked him if a great European war would not force our bonds home and interfere with re sumption. Mr. Sherman replied: We are not bound to pay for our bonds unless they are due. Specie payment meant the equivalency of gold and paper. It is the theory that the one per cent, difference be tween gold and paper will disappear before the first of January, or else I would not commence specie pay ment But suppose that I am mis taken. Suppose your fears are well grounded, and that I am over-sanguine, as some people say that I am; well, Congress will meet in Decem ber, and the question will be so ap parent to every man that if the Re sumption Act can not be carried out, I will come to Congress and say that I have not been able to accumulate this reseeve, or that an adverse state of circumstances has arisen, and that I am not able to do what the Re sumption Act required me to do. The ALsyor of Des Moines, .Iowa, who resigned last November, to take effect when he should again be found drunk, has fulfilled the condition and stepped down and out. Man pro poses and whisky disposes. Last week an old slave woman ob tained a verdict for $2,500 damages in the United States District Court ia Cincinnati for being kidnaped and sold into slavery twenty-six years ego. Mr. J. M. Smith, Careen Bay, Wis consin, one of the most intelligent and successful farmers and market gardeners in his State, says in the Western Rural, that he cannot see any prospect for ''high prices" for at least some years to come, and toat the only possible way to get better returns is to raise larger crops on less land at lower cost. The old miser, J. C. Tnllis, who died at Cincinnati, recently, amid squalor and without a single comfort about him, left ?n estate consisting in part of over three inillion acres of land, 1,340 of which are in Indiana. These lands are in nineteen States, the smallest number of acres being in Indiana, the largest nuber 960, 180, being in Kentucky. There is a perfect rush of lawyers in the courts and a man who can hardly write his own name has been appointed ad ministrator. The lawyers and bonds men will get more out of the millions than Tullis's heirs. The southern claims on the Na tional Treasury aggregate the mod est em cf ?202,QQQ,00O. It it of at E. its try the of up in the R, of a the a all the Practical Resumption. Tho financial quacks who have been filling the land with their gab ble, that Resumption was impossi ble, and clamoring for the repeal of the Resumption Act, must feel de cidedly flat over tho complete failure of all their predictions of ruin to the country, if the Republican policy was persisted in. It is still eight months before the date fixed for Re sumption, (Jan. l6t, 1S79) and what do we set? JJy the wise fianancial policy of the Administration, and the sagacious management of Secretary Sherman, resumption Las practically begun, without the slightest shock to the business of the country, but on the contrary with the happiest ef fects, in reviving conbuence among capitalists and business men, and thus ravins the way for a return to better times. The honor of being the first bank to resume payment of its notes in gold belongs to the First National of Atlanta, Georgia. The first to follow its example was the Third National, cf Cincinnati, then the Broadway Rank, of New York City. and since these, scores of other banks in all parts of the country, have resumed payments in gold. The fact that tho Third National of Cincinnati, was only called upon to pay about S500 in gold during the first three days after it resumed, shows that the public confidence is restored, in the ability of the tanks to pay gold, and when the people know they can get gold by asking for it, they prefer the bank notes, be cause they are more convenient.

The latest notable scandal case is that of Dr. McCoskry, a Bishop in the Protestant -Episcopal church in Michigan, whose good reputation has been suddenly blackened by his over fondness for women. The charges appear to be true, and the Bishop, to avoid the force of the scandal, has suddenly left the coun for Europe. Well says tho Chi cago Tribune : "These dreadful disclosures of the weakness of human nature teach their own lesson. They are sad enough when they are confined to people of the world ; but when clergymen who have had the respect the community for years, and high church dignitaries who aro looked to by thousands as exemplars of morality and piety, lapse into sin and desecrate their holy offices, the shock is a terrible one. It gives bad men an opportunity to attack the church. It induces unbelievers and those halting in their opinions to doubt the resiraining power of re ligion. If it be true, as has been claimed, that these social crimes run waves, we must at present be in midst cf a tidal wave of extraor dinary 6ize, that is sweeping away many conspicuous victims and leav ing a sad waste of ruin."

Our Countrymen in Paris—How they look and act—Some of the famous Restaurants and Cafes— Bennett and Bignons—Arrival of Prominent Americans—Progress at the Exposition Grounds—Reciprocal Courtesy of France and Germany—Completion of the United States Annex, &c. Hotel du Louvre, Paris, 7 April 11, 18 1878. j Somebody has said, that Americans make the best Frenchmen of all the foreigners who flock here from all parts of the clobe ; and from what I have seen of our beloved country men abroad, I am inclined to believe that such is really the fact The English aro always English, and pro dominate in London styles on the Rue de Pivoli, effect nothing but dog-carts and drags on the Boule vards and in the Bois do Boulogne, and, when they condescend to learn French, never speak it without the peculiar nasal cockney twang of Pic cadilly. The Russians, of whom there are always a large colony here, are intensely Passu in every thing,and spend more money on diamonds, champagne and questionable women, than all the other foreigners put to gether. The Germans, of whom we have also a great many here, are, ob a rule, of an economical turn of mind, patroniz9 cheap restaurants and third-class hotels, and assimilate with nothing so readily as beer. They are tho least popular of all the for eigners here, for Paris has not yet forgotten 1871. But an American has not been a week in Paris before he waxes his moustache, buys a plug hat of the latest Parisian style at Chanrits, sports lavender kids and a whalebone cane with an ivory leg for a handle, wears narrow trowsers, a tigntly-ttting cheviot sack-coat and patent-leather boots, and says au plaisir " and "pardon, mon sieur, every live minutes. During the last fortnight, every train from Calais and Havre has brought a swarm of Americans to Paris, most of whom intend to re main here during the coming Ex hibition. Go to any of the first-class hotels, the Splendide, the Louvre, the Grand Hotel, or Hotel de 1' Ath- inie, for instance, and you will find crowds of them. Bignon's, on the Boulevard des Italiens, and the Cafe Piche, on the Boulevard des Copucints, seem to possess peculiar attractions for young and flush Americans, who may bo seen here at luncheon and dinner every day. Bignon's is the headquarters of Mr. James Gordon Bennett, proprietor of the New York Herald, who takes his meals there, and always sits at the same little round tables, in company with three or four friends. The Trois Piers, in the Palais Royal, and Nefours, vie with Bignon's and the Cafe Riche in point of excellence, el egance and comfort but are chiefly patronized by Jngliscmen ana na tive Parisians, Americans preferring Bignon's. It was G. H. Butler, that delightful Bohemian, I believe, who remarked that "a breakfast at Bi non's is a poem, and a dinner at the Cafe Riche a liberal education," and those of my countrymen who are sur feited with our dyspeptic way of pre paring viands intended for human digestion wou'd appreciate the force of this remark ! It is yet too early to derive much pleasure from a visit to the Exposi tion grounds, where everything is 3till in confusion, but from day to day, order ia evolved from Chaos, and by the first of May, everything, with the exceytion of the United States Division, will be in apple-pie order, end our Commissioners are doing all they can to make, at. least, a respectable show at the opening. Among recent distinguished Amer ican arrivals are Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Dana, (Mr. Dana is a grandson of tho poet Dana, and his wife a daugh ter of the poet Longfellow,) and Mr. Stoughton, our minister at St. Pe tersburg, who is here on a brief pre liminary visit, making arrangements for a longer stay during the Exhibi tion. Mr. J. Russell, the N. Y. Herald correspondent who accompa nied ex-President Grant on his trip on the TJ. S. Steamer Vandalia, is also here ; and Mr. Bayard Taylor, our new minister to Berlin, and Sam uel Clemens, better known as "Mark Twain," are expected to arrive in the course of a few days. The Wheelock engine, built in Worcester, Mass., which is to propel the machinery in the American sec tion, is now being erected, and will be ready for its trial in a few days. Though inferior in size to many of the engines in the French, English and German departments,it compares favorably with them in workmanship and finish, and I was told by the en gineer in charge that it works almost noiselessly. Strange to say, Krupp, the famous gun manufacturer of Es sen, in Rhenish Prussia, has, so far, none of his cannon placed in position; perhaps this is a point of delicacy, however, because Paris saw and felt rather too much of the Krupp can non in 1871. The monster gun which he had on exhibition at Phila delphia in 187G has been purchased by the Russian Government, and now forms an important and form idable part of the armament of the fort Cronstadt, in the Baltic sea. The recent order issued by the art committee of the French Commis sioners, that no paintings commemo rating scenes from the late Franco -German war would be allowed at the Exhibition, has given rise to consid erable dissatisfaction among some of the leading French artists, who had painted battle scenes with the ex press purpose of exhibiting them to the world at the Champ d- Mars this summer. But this order was made imperatively necessary by tho action of the Emperor of Germany in pro hibiting German artists contributing pictures of the Siega of Paris, battle of Sedan, and similar scenes by no means soothing or complimentary to the French. So that tho Art Gallery at the great International Exposition of 1878 will bo neutral ground, where both nations may meet with out stumbling over anything that would rip up wounds that have scarcely healed yet, and give vent W) many a "sacref and "Ponnenrett:r.r' from both Gauls and Teutons. Mr. Pittit, the French Architect who superintends the erection of ihe American annex, has very nearly completed his part of the work, the front or facade having been placed in position. The canvas screens. which it has been found necessary to stretch across tho roof, are also in place, and will bear favorable com parison with anything of the kind in the Exhibition. Each screen bears the name and device of one of the States in the Union, and in the cen tre is a grand design representing the arms of the United States. The colors are very bright, and th e orna mental designs chaste and effective. The designs on the screens are so ar ranged as to form lines running the whole length of the building, so as to draw out perspective lines and make the United States section appear as long as possible. Even if we are limited in space, we are bound to make the most of what we have, and by a little innocent optical illusion "make," as the Parisians say, "the sausage look as big as possible !" LOUIS.

The Cincinnati Branch of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Socie ty of ihe M. E. Church, is composed of the three States Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia ; embracing seven Annual Conferences, each represent ed by a Conference Secretary, and subdivided into 49 Presiding Elders' Districts, each represented by a Dis trict Secretary. The annual meeting of this body was held this year for the first time outside of Ohio, in Wheeling, W. Va. The lime fixed for holding the annual meeting is the second Tues day in April of each year. The pleasant weather ; the liberal reductions of tare by trie various railroads ; and the increased interest in missionary work, combined to make the Conference delegations the largest that ever attended an annual meeting of this branch. There were two sessions held each day in the lecture-room of the Fourth &t. ju. Jb. cnurcn, ana ono eacn eve ning in the audience room. The noon hour was most delightfully spent socially, renewing old ac qnaintances and forming new ones while we were bountifully supplied with a sumptuous lunch by the good ladies of Wheeling. The President, Mrs. Bishop Clark, of Cincinnati, presided with her usual grace and dignity. The address of welcome was given by Mrs. Dr. A. C. George, of Wheel ing, and was handsomely responded to by Mrs. Dr. Donaldson, of Toledo. The delegates were introduced and welcomed by the President. Also a large number of ministers and lady visitors from Wheeling and vi cinity. Miss Nettie C. Ogden, a returned missionary from Mexico, was in at tendance. Mrs. W. A. Ingham, of Cleveland. the Corresponding Secretary of the branch, read her annual report from our Missionaries, Schools, Orphan ages, Bible Readers, &c. in India, China, Japan, Mexico, Africa and South America ; giving us much in formation in regard to our foreign fields. The Treasurer, Mrs. Dr. W. B. Davis, of Cincinnati, read her report, showing receipts for the year at $18,54.8.80 ; and disbursements at 15,718.18. The seven Conference Secretaries, in reporting the home work, told of an increased interest and activity in the work, beyond what they had known before. The hour assigned to the. District Secretaries, was ocenpied in discuss ing, 1st. Consecration to the work. 2d. Hindrances to the work. 3d. Methods of overcoming them. The President stated that a mis sionary candidate was present one whom they hoped in due time to sen l out to tho foreign field. Mrs Davis came forward, accompanied by the young lady candidate. Mrs. Davis said: "I take great pleasure in introducing to you Miss Blanche McLean, a member of my Sunday School class. She is very dear to me, and is greatly beloved in Cincin nati. She has, for a long while, felt called to go as a missionary. I do assure you that our prayers will go with her, and I am sure she will from this hour have your prayers." As we looked at Mrs. Davis, stand ing there beside the youthful miss ionary candidate, we felt that the office of Sunday School teacher re ceived a new seal of promise. The Master drew very near at the moment, and impressed many hearts with the precious trust wrappod np in the wonderful possibilities of a Sunday School class. The session throughjut was a very pleasant and profitable one ; and the delegates returned, bearing many pleasant recollections of the kindness of the people of Wheeling, and renewed resolves to prosecute the mission work with increased ef fort and diligence.

An important meeting of the sto k-1 holders of tho Cincinnati & Fayette ville R.

Third-Granting power to Com-! pany to issue bends not to exceed six thousand dollars (G,00C) per mile, for the purpose of putting iron ' and rolling stock on the road. I xi .1 rp . ., , . 1 fccurth To increase the Dumber of ry. . . Directors from seven to nine. This indicates that the directors cf ' of the road are preparing to push the a . ! extension JLastward, so as to securer I a connection with the coal regon.Un This can only be done by extending ' the road through this COULty, either as an independent line, or by con-' necting with the C. &; M. R. W., east of Danville. The hitter plan is the one most likely to be adopted, if the ! proposed branch of the C. & M. R. , W. from Hillsboro to Bain- bridge be built without unnecessary j delay. With this branch built, or its J construction rmdered certain, there be no need of an independent i line from Fayetteville to the coal re gion, as the SpriDgfield, Jackson L Pomeroy road will 6oon be opt-ned from Jackson to Bainbridge, and fur- nish an ample supply of the best coal. The friends of the Bainbridge branch of the Columbu3 & Mays ville R. W. should be encouraged to renewed effort3 by the above ac tion of the Cincinnati & Fayetteville R. W. Co. If the branch from here to Bainbridge were built, the de mand for coal from the entire coun try along the Cincinnati & Fayette ville, Cincinnati & Eastern, and Co lumbus & Maysville railways, wonld of itself create a business for thoso roads that would pay all running ex penses, if not more, pnd leave all the ' ; other freight and passenger boBiness. for cler profit.
