the wilderness of North Carolina. His
father placed liim in a storo with tho in

by his own efforts at night, alter work
ing all day at his tiudo, and by tho help
of his wife.
The early home of Gen. Grant, also,
on the banks of the Ohio, more than
fifty years ago, was without many of

Great Britaiu'u possession of the rock
of Gibraltar is a reho of a bygone age.
It has for many generations been ainon
ument of tho least azreeable side of Eu
ropean politics. Gibraltar is by tiosition
a Spauuh fortress, and its name is a
synonym for impregnability. Why,
then, should it bo occupied by a foreign
lower? Ou no theory of fair play can
tho fact be accounted for, but not till
recently has a British lovo of justico
seen anything improper in it. Agita
tion for tho recovery of the foi tress is
now in progress in Spain, and tho En
glish Radicals to a considerable extent
sympathize with it. Sentimentalism,
however, is not alono at tho bottom of
the talk of surrender. Modern modes
of warfare are such that Gibraltar is not
indispensable to British glory. IU
harlior is poor and is commanded by tho
guns of other forts. No force could
take Gibraltar, it is admitted, but that
docs not increase its imjiortance to En
glaud, for at this day a rendezvous for
tho Mediterranean licet of ironclads is
of mora importance than a land fort not
connected with good anchorago ground
for veesol of the class which compose
the British navy. There is a harbor on
tho African coast suitablo to receive tho
largest ilect of tho largest men-of-war,
well guarded by fortifications, and ac
cessible to supplies from abroad. Tho
changes in fifty years iu tho art of war
would make this port equivalent for
Gibraltar. It is not straugo that tho
mowug spirit of Spanish nationality
mourns for the recovery of tho historia
fortress.

A reporter ukrd James N. Sampson,
tho ftiran di-'i i live at tho r3nb-triiu-
ry, to what the Government detectives
attributed Iho sudden iiicrcsKO in tho
numlierof clipped and punched coins,
which ho attracted co much attention
of late. Mr. Sampson said that it was
jrfcctly well known that nine-tenths
of the (lunching was dona in this city by
Cubans. A ihhuIht of silver coins wero
clamped together in a roll, and in lens
time than it takes to write nn account of
it a hole is drilled through tho whole
lot Tho filnoof tho silver obtained by
punching n hole of usual size iu a coin
amounts to nbout onc-tnenty-fifth of
tho nluo of tho coin, so that for every
roll of twenty-flvo quarter-dollars tho
vulnoof ono qunrtcr-dollnr is obtained
in a moment by running a drill througl;
tho roll. 3Ir. Sampson snys, also, that
many of tho punched coins come from
Mexico and South America, whero our
silver coins circuluto freely, and rarely
cscapo mutilation. Several attempts
liavo been mado of lata j ears to break
up tho systematic punching of coins,
but with littlo Buccess. Only two con-
victious for tho offeiuo have licen mado
iu ten years. 3fr. Sampon remarked
that, whilo tho business of punching and
filing coins was almont wholly in the
hands of tho Cubans, tho business of
sweating gold coins by shaking them up
in a buckskin bag is attributed by tho
detectives to the denizens of Chatham
street. By shaking a bag containing
100 eagles for threo hours the result in
gold dust will be worth nbout $20. Mr.
Floyd, tho chitf clerk of tho assay office,
said that the Government rules relating
to light-weight gold coins were defective,
and tended to keep such coins in circu
lation. When n gold coin less than
twenty years old is abraded to moro thau
per cent, of its value, it is stamped
with nn " L" at the Sub-treasury and
returned to whoever offers it, instead of
Ix-iiig sent to the mint. The object is
to force the holder to take it to the
assay office or mint to be sold at its real
value, instead of which it goes into cir
culation again. The trouble is that
Congress has never mado any provision
for redeeming mutilated or even abraded
coin. Many persons think that all pieces
that havo been worn down beyond re
cognition iu actual Hcrvice should bo re
deemed at par. Tho difficulty is to tell
when a pieco has been worn smooth
through use or brought to that condition
by sweating or other artificial means.
Mr. Fiovd considers that tho mutilation
of silver coin doe? not need Government
interference, because uuliko tho abra
sion of gold, the multilation of a silver
coin can be detected at once, and it rests
with the public to drive such coins out
of circulation. Arcu York Kvenlng
