After tho party, which numbered about sixty, had partaken of refreshments. Mr. Wil liam Hrockle, president of tlio Marilimo Ex chnnge, called a meeting and iutioduced Sec retary Shnrmnn, who Said : (Ji:.sTl.iMmt: I did not expect, when I received your kind InvltAllou, that 1 would be called upon to make a speech, and I do nut understand that un friends here desire mo to make a speech, but I will eoniinunco by returning thanks for tlm pleasure that I Imvu enjoyed In Inspecting tho shores of the Holawnru and witnessing iho Immense progress uud growth of thn roinmereo of this great city of Philadelphia It presents a combination of trade find commerce thnt 1 know of In no other city In tlil country, but as those point aro iiillo familiar to you, I will not cnlargo upon them. In regard to the resumption experiment, myrrloud has paid me compliments that aro entirely exaggerated. I do not desire any such compliments. Ajear or two ago I thought I wns a great deal too much abused by a great many. Now I am praised for a great many things I don't deserve, to I hold a pretty fair balance. I hail an Idea when Innumod tho ofllcii I now hold that it would bo a good thing to get back to the resumption nfrpuclo payments. They fay 1 am pretty stubborn alMiut principles I hold to, and that I will carry out what I begin. 1 never had any doubt about llio ability lo resume not at all. A (treat many good men somo of these, no doubt, who hmr me thought it was not a wise undertaking toattempt tomnVo tha vast vol umo of our paper money dinrvl to gold j th.it wo did not coin enough to do It. I was tho Judge. I had Iho lawon my side tho power to bring It about and the determination to do It. Tho result has Lccu happy and licnellclal to all classes of In terests and all Industries, and to rich and poor those who labor as well as thosu who spend money all aro benefited by a utablo currency such as wo hnvo to-day. Now, gentlemen, I think I li&vo said all I need. 1 am very hopoful of tho fnturo progress ofnur couutrv. Wu arc happily situated, compared with other countries Wo have a brood, uncultivated area of land that has never been broken by tho plow. We havu mines compared with tho onormous value of which, tho vaunted mine of 1'eni wero poor and scant. '11m Comslnck Lodo and others aro greater than anything In tho history ol the world, 'two year ago labor was tuilferliig In tho principal cities of this country. Men wore afraid that our Institutions could not stand the .strain ami would break down, and that a period ol depression greater than that in England, France, or (lermauy had come, People were Mitl'erlng and could not get work, and ill-content reigned supremo. Some went to uncultivated lands lu tho Wost, others went nwny.and migration finally equalized Iho do mand and supply of labor, until now, lu two years, I bellcvo thero Is not any pait of the United Mites where htmot labor cannot get an honest day's work and honest money to pay for It. Ihiru aro thoso who hold that our currency never could bo maintained equal to coin with a dmiarid upon ns offsi) 000,000 or 830,000io a jear. I can say to you now that we havu thu means, so rarely do they care about gold or silver for money, that only S7,0OOOHO havo been drawn for notes and greenbacks. This Is tho strangest thing about it. Now that gold Is so easy to got, nobody cares to takcthotroubloof euro Inch. It Is a tact that lu ciery mouth last year, ami the year before, and the sear beroro that, there was nioiu gold paid from tho Treasury than has now been demanded from the 1st of January of this year to thu present tlmo Tor all puiposes, and our note. Instead of bdiiu 10 or 15 nor cent, below' nar. now that wo hava cold and silver to pay thorn on demand, aro actiiallrat a premium. Tha Treasury Department In .San Iraucisco wanted notes Instead of gold, and we refused lo givo them gieenbncls. In New York ami Philadelphia noono' wants gold. When they couldn't get It everybody wanted It; when they can, nobody docs. Resumption Is now Mixed fact, but wo havo got to stand by and not let demagogues and tricksters cheat us out of w hat we have accomplished. Seciotnry Sherman again thanked tho gon tkmen picsont lor tho couitcsy shown and re sumed his scat, Itetuiiik woio also made by Collector Tut ton, H.

Tho Information comes thiough t veiy ro liable somco that Senalor Kellogg and o her lendlnif Republicans recommended in n very urgent manner tho appointment of Colonol Roberts to liavo charge of tho codlllcatlnu of the Aimy Rexulatloiis.

Tlio Adjutatit-flcuoral iccom mended tho appointment of Colonel Robeits ns one of Iheso assistants, and his recommenda tion was tippuived by tho Seerotaty.

It Is, howovor, an ap pointment for some tlueo or lour months ser vice, nnd It liclalniid thnt Colonel Roboits Is well inmlllled for tho discharge of tho duty.

The explana tion givou of tho appointment of Roboits Is, howovor, duo hlui. It Is dtllkuK lu discover any excuse for tho appointment of Democrat lo olllec.

Company C, of United States negro troops, woro about scouting over tlieso daik recesses as wu passed Hot Spiiugs; hut all ugico thnlr raids or scouts aro vain. Tho worst fcatuiu of tho situation Is that they uro possibly leagued with Indians, concealed In a still finlhor tango of mountains which stand like a trio of sisters, cone-shaped, us wo sco them llslug In misty majesty of out lino, nnd which cover tho ginndest cattle nud stock plains of Now Mexico, but whoro it Is now worth a man's tlio to veuturc, Tho most wonderful hot springs of tho Territory also Ho iu the same region of outlawry.
