A MONSTER SCHEME TO RAISE THE CARRE, DECLARE WAR AND C.ET RICH ON’ WHEAT MARGINS. A New York dispatch of the 20th lust, says for four days past rep resentatives of the New York Herald have been at work developing a conspiracy, of which they have had in timation, the etlect of which would bo to almost bankrupt the country. With in a week the Hr raid has received an explicit statement of the essential points in a conspiracy of grain men whereby an immense and sudden llnc tnation in the market prices was con templated. The conspirators number about twenty, who between them have raised about $-00,000 to effect the con summation of their plans. The leader of the gang is an ex-operator on the New York board of trade, who was twice expelled for good reasons, the last charges being of a grave character. He is a man wholly unscrupulous, who will hesitate at nothing. Shortly after the inauguration of the Tnrko-Unssian war ho set his wits to work to secure a pile on tin' rises of wheat, and through oth er parties succeeded in making quite a sum during the excitement. When peace was announced, he saw his chances for honest speculation nipped in the hud. It was then beset about per fecting a plan lie had conceived. It took sometime to secure the right co-cons pi rn tors, and it was not until quite recent ly that tlu' organization was completed. The plan is simply this: A chart, showing the exact location of the At lantic cables, is to he stolen from the government documents, ami the parties will then proceed to a non.i —probably otV the coast of New Bruns wick—and then, having supplied them selves with the proper appliances, will proceed to raise the cable. This done, they will proceed to tap that useful coil and insert a wire of their own. which will be manipulated by an operator in the boat. In this manner all the cable grams from the old world will be inter cepted, and those of no consequence sent in to their destination. In the meantime other members of the organ ization are quietly buying wheat, both on the New York Board and on the Chi cago Exchange. They have so man aged it that there does not seem to he an excessive demand. On April lidlh, these dealers are to stop buying and on that date it was the plan of the conspir. ilors to begin sending telegrams that would indicate a war disposition on the part of England. On the second or third day the thing was to culminate in an open’declaration of war on the part of England, with immense preparations for the allray. It was anticipated that this would run the demand for wheat up to an unprecedented height, when the dealers could discreetly sell and re alize millions. MEXICAN INDIAN HAIMS. A San Antonio, Texas, special under date of April 21st, reports the Indian ■•aiders who crossed from Mexico soin-j time since as having reached the Ft. Ewell sheep settlement, and are sweeping flocks before them. Several persons have al ready been reported killed, iroops and citizens are in pursuit but not likely to overtake them. The river is fordable at all points near Lerado. dhese raids are not to be confounded with those raiding on the northwestern frontier. THK ANNEAL BEVOI.VTION.

TEN MU MON PER CENTS KOK THE KOTHSCIUI-Ds. A New York press telegram of April X)lh states that few days since the Rothschilds, of lyondon. sent a cable dispatch to the new syndicate, agreeing to dispose of $10,000.1, >OO of government ■lt per cent, coupon bonds' under the contract recently entered into with the syndicate, and this amount was tak en to Europe yesterday on the steanisphip Adriatic, by Mr, Oonant, the new manager of the Enited States financial bureau in London. The bonds were packed in two small iron safes a Washington, and were forwarded to the suh-troasnry in this oily, whence they were shipped on the Adriatic. They represented the various denominations of this issue, a large proportion representing the small er denominations. Said a member of the syndicate on yesterday: This is not exactly a subscription to the new $d0,(>00,000 loan, though practically it amounts to the same thing, flic Rothschilds, believing that these bonds area safe investment, have undertaken to dispose of them, with the understanding that such as are not sold may he returned. Washington. I.A lIOK AND ITS WAGES. Washington advices of the 22d hist, state that the Secretary of State has invited the Consular service to report on the following subject.-; First.price of labor among laborers of all classes: second, cost of living of laboring class es; third, comparison of the present cost of living and rates of wages with that for the last ten years; foruth, the cost of produce and its market price; tilth, the amount of paper money in circulation, and its relative value to gold and silver, together with its llnetnations during as many years as can be accurately obtained, and the causes which have produced tlnctna tio.i. The labor and greenback move menl in (lie west, or what is known as the National party, is agitating ques tions largely involved in these inquiries, and the Michigan representatives have shown wisdom in suggesting them to the department of stale, so that in the coming campaign the facts ma\ be placed accurately and intelligent!) be fore the people. THE SILVER DOLLARS. Since the passage of the silver bill there has been but little demand foi lin' silver dollar, because Secretary Sherman will not exchange them for anything but gold.

Ik I‘nlleii a Cincinnati mer chant and author of a loan on finance has been before the committee on hanking and currency. His idea is that the only proper money that should he allowed to circulate is that issued by the government, and that tlu> government prerogative' to is sue money applies with much greater force to paper money than to coin. He thinks that on that subject the public mind has been misled for generations. The banks, he thinks, might rat her he allowed to issue coin than paper be cause the intrinsic value of coin is near its actual value: whereas, the onlv val ue ol paper money is that passed i>v the government.

When he thus sheltered himself he was impregnable, and the secrets of the riot in his possession re maiiu *1 inviolate. The testimony of the other three wit nesses occupied hut a tew minutes and was wholly unimportant as exposing anything with which the public is not already familiar. Ammon testified. He said he had been a hrakeman on the Fort W'avne road up to June, IST, He knew that freight trains were abandoned at Pitts burg in July.
