Nbw Cartt.r, Jan. 18.—For the first
t ime during this remarkably mild (for
tunately) winter, there was a busy scene
from the Delaware street wharf, in the
harb.ir, last night. Karly iu the even
lug a number of Heading barges had
been brought in for some extra stores
and for orders. Hater two or three tug
boats steamed In to the wharf to speud
Hie night* la the signal and telegraph
office the operators were waiting, it is
said, for the steamship Houthwark, the
handsome new vessel of the luter
national Navigation Company, which,
arrived aud passed up the river last
week on her maiden trip. When
the Southwark left tie Quaker City
she was drawlug thirty feet of
water and wise old watermen in this
neighborhood shook their heads as they
thought of the, bar directly across the
river bet ween'this city aud Peuusville
aud of tbe shoal at Dan Baker. The new
steamship, however, did uot get down
as far as New Castle before encounter
ing trouble. She had barely reached
Marcus Hook when her bottom scraped
and the captain wisely concluded to
stop Just bow far down the river the
Southwark will get to day is difficult to
imagine.
Auotiter incident that attracted dmch
attention iu the harbor last, night was
the arrival off the W. ,V N. wharf of the
bark New Light, from Philadelphia for
Savannah, in a disabled condition. The
New Light had on a cargo of coal and
her mate reported that she was blown
ashore below Reedy Island last Friday
between 2 and 2 a. m She was pulled
off by the tug McCaulley aud towed to
this city yesterday for repairs. AH
night she was leaking aud sailors had to
man the pumps and keep them going
until tbe work of repair began to-day.
laical carpenters will probably get the
contract to make her seaworthy again.

GENERAL P08TLFS HITS BACK.
HU KninarltN In I'lillMttelplila MI»rou
mihI MUr«|iic»ciil«J By a Morn
ing I'aper.
lu au open letter General J. Parke
Post lex criticizes t he editor of the Morn
ing News for misconstruing hie remarbe
made to the member« of the National
Morocco Manufacturers' Association la
Philadelphia last week. He says;
"1 had seen au article of similar tenor
in one of your contemporaries, supposed
to have been written by a former attach*
of the Morning News also a communi
cation iu the Philadelphia Press, sup
poseHy from the same source. I consid
ered the source of these articles, as I
presume your (Democratic coni empor
aries) did also, and did uot deem any uo
lice of same necessary.
"But how you. Mr. Kditor, or an honest
and intelligent mau could, from my re
marks which you quote, arrive at the
conclusion that it was a 'proposition to
form a trust to put up the price of those
grade« of skins which are in demand,'
etc., isbetond my comprehension.
"Had you quoted further from my re
marks where I stated that I only made
this a suggestion, not requiring any
formal action, but fur the purpose of
impressing the facts upon the minds of
the members of the trade so that each
for himself should see the necessity of
taking such action as would remedy the
evil complained of it would have so com
pletely knocked the bottom out of the
argument of your article that ou the
whole I hardly think the arllrU would
have been published.
"The facts are that in this business we
fix a line of prices on the various grades
of stock In accordance with our ideas of
their comparative values. The low grad.s
being much below cost, and the prices
advancing through the various grades,
till the best grades are reached, which ol
course are priced much above cost, the
effort being to secure an average ptise
which will give us a margin of prolit.
"Now it is manifest that «hen the
buyers of our goods shall have demon
strated to us. hy readily bn] lug our
medium and lower grades, and refusing
to buy our better grades, that their ideas
of their relative values sud ours differ so
radically, there can be but one remedy, if
the busine-e U to be continued ; and that
remedy istbe readjustment of pi lets, by re
ducing the prices of tbe bel ter grades and
advancing tbe prices of tbe medium and
lower grades sufficiently to preserve the
average price at a point which shall
secure a margin of prudt.
"That was my suggestion, nothing
more, and nothing less, as l think a full
report of my remarks on the occasion
will fully prove.
"If in this, any one can honestly find
any proposition to form a trust, or
anything of any such nature, then I can
only say that I pity the want of intelll
pence of that pet son.
""That an irresponsible scribbler
should have written and procured the
publication of tbe tcrardi above referred
to, in possibly not surprising, and Is
hardly worthy of notice; but, wben a
reputable public journal editorially
makes a partial quotation of
anyone's remarks and bases upon
suoh onntation misleading state
ments, and draws unwarranted con
clusions In the attempt to make a little
cheap party capita), it seems to the lay
mind that it is quilty of an act which, to
say the least, Is beneath tbe dignity of
reputable j ournalism " _
