The defendant demurred to the declaration on the ground that the facts alleged do not show anv l c - I debt, duty or obligations to the State existed for'whieh the revenue ; agent was authorized by law to sue. : The derotirre. was sustained, suit j ' dismissed and the State appealed. .

"The agent has no power to sue for a tax upon property of person, unless the same has been levied upon assessment of the property or thing by competent authority." There is no pretense of such in this case, the court decides that the revenue net of l.S!H), tinder which the suit was brought, was made for the future and cannot be retroactive as contended by the revenue agent. This decision involves many hun dred of thousand of dollars, of simi lar delinquent revenues. (Jloster Gossip. We find the two following items in theVicksburg Commercial Her ald, telegraphed fromGlostcr,under date of April 27th: j The negroes were in abad humor last night. Howard Shears and , Van Levy engaged in a quarrel , about some firewood, which result- eJ in Shears stabbing Levy in the back with a pocket knife, inflicting j two dangerous wounds. Shears made his escape, lie has the name of being a bad man. At about tho same time John Pointer, colored, was shot in the leg at a negro dance house by some ' unknown party. Ho is painfully if not dangerously wounded. There must have been razors in the air. A writer in tho New York Sun calls attention to the fact that the business woman of to-day manifests; a more strict regard for that portion i of the decalogue which forbids stealing than the business man. It, is pointed ont that this state of things prevails in both public and private stations, and this notwith standing the fact that women re ceive much smaller salaries than the men.

The receipts of the New Orleans post office for the year endingMarch 31, 1891, are larger than had been ' anticipated, the falling off in the lottery business being expected to produce a much grcnter decrease.

A story appeared in nn afternoon paper in the guise of a letter which purport - ed to have been received by a person not named, in Boston, from Cathc- rine Roach, the aged spinster and miser who died of starvation in a squalid apartment at G9 James street some weeks ago, leaving , $1,000,000 and bank books. The alleged letter told of the kidnapping of a little child named McCuo many years ago and of money belonging to the child's mother, which the writer got possession of and of her desire to atone by giving half of her money to the child, now a young woman, whose abode she did not know. Miss Roach could not write, and all of her letters and writing for the past three years had been done by her old shoemaker, who has a shop at CS James street, directly across the way. His name is Michael Crow. Ho says he never wrote the letter referred to and never beard the old woman speak of any such story. Persons who knew the old lady for a quarter of a century never heard of her having a child with her at anytime. John Roach, her nephew, who lives on Monroe street, said he had visited his aunt for twenty years and never heard of any such thing. He expects to get her money and thinks some lawyer's scheme of fraud is behind it all. Oar Wahiuiton Letter. Washinotc-s April -24. 1501. The news of the snubbing given Mr. Harrison by the National Re publican League convention at Cin- cinnati caused no surprise here, where every one who is at all post- j ed on political matters knows the j contempt felt for the present occu- pant of the White House by the . ... 11 x ieaaers ot tee repuoncan party, , chief of whom is Mr. Blaine, who! is now believed to fcave intention- j 7 deceived Mr. Harrison, when; he promised him that he would not , Frose hi nomination. It is- now ; conceded that Blaine may have or ...... i dictate the republican nomination; next vear, and if he allows Mr. j ;ir ; i :i-...iii...i narnson to oe naui cu . . , simply becaBse he will have become , nvineed of the unposeibihty of. electtng a republican. j A gentleman who ,. a warm personal friend of Mr. Harrison; fs e.that h 1S not the T Mr. Blaine to the extent imagined . , t t 1 iL.i -f - -f.,1 ' whelming egotism to believe that, he could possibly be defeated. So! have it? .. The cflect of the legislation of, tlie uillio dllar congress is be-j ginning to be f.dt at the Treasury- department, and already Secretary) Foster has began to scheme as to I how he can get the $ru),000,000 J that must be paid on the 1st of j July for pensions. He has decided i to utilize the $18,000,000 in silver j half dollars now in the Treasury l,.v depositing them in the National ; I banks, thus making them available for the Government's current ex penses. Another item, aside from the Congressional appropriations be- coming payable after July 1, that j is taxing Mr. Foster's ingenuity to provide for is the $10,000,000 of 4J per cent bonds that will mature in September. Although it has for j some weeks been given out that all i of these bonds would be taken up' at or before maturity, I have it on, good authority that it is the present , intention of Mr. Foster to allow j those in the hands of the National j banks to remain outstanding nt a I reduced rate of interest, if the banks will consent to it. Whether he can legally do this without the j passage of a special funding act of; Congress is a debatable question, j Nobody has ever had much con- j fidence in the honesty of Secretary I Tracy's alleged reform in the cm-J ployment of the foremen and master ! mechanics of the navy yards of the country, and now that it has been indorsed by SenatnrClinndler there. isn't an atom of confidence left in it. If Jerry Simpson isn't careful somebody will charge him with bcirg in the pay of theWashington agents lobby. He made a speech here this week in favor of the Government's paying the Union soldiers or their heirs the difference j between the value of thegreenbacks : paid them during the war nnd of 1 go,.

TJie Senate Finance committee has designated as a sub-committee to investigate the working of the McKinley tariff law, nnder the resolution adopted by the Senate at the last session, Senators Allison, Aldrich, Hitchcock, Carlisle and Harris.

Old Ironsides. Illustrated A merican: In Novem ber, 1832, the first passenger train in Pennsylvania made its trial trip. It was drawn by "Old Ironsides," a famous engine built by M, W. Baldwin, founder of the great loco motive works in Philadelphia that still bear his name. Old Ironsides had some drawbacks to its efficiency. For example, on the trial trip it was found that the wheels were too light to keep the machine on the track. So engineer and ma chinists had to push until consider able headway was gained. Then they jumped aboard so that their weight would keep the wheelsdown. The boiler also was too small and did not generate enough steam for long distances. Hence for much of the distance between Philadelphia and Germantown the engineer and assistants found theirs a varied career. They had to push and ride alternately. The rails, loo, had eccentricities of their own.

The box had been in the office since yesterday morning. The snake crawled from the box, which had broken up, into the office of the money clerk, where Mr. Davis was at work. As soon as he saw the reptile nrnroachinff he took to the vault as a place of satety, and the porters fled from the office. The snake was a monster, about 7 feet long.
