ginia iatem:, to pay her defaulted landed
lIcI?t. Something like $4,000,000 of lh\<
lieiil is held in tin's country and about
$9,000,000 fn Creaf Britain, il lias hurt
Ihc State s credit because financiers on
both sides of the Atlantic have been
wary of enterprises sheltered by the t.Md
Dominion. The Englishmen have bee
especially savage, and ail visin'n.u- South

Virginia need not expect aid for its finari
cial and indesm'al enterprises.
The Southerners decided over ycai
ugo to gel Jo work and see ii' the Statt
couldn't be iinpresstid with ti:e situation.
A b< ndholders;' committee was organized,
consisting of Frederick P. Olcott, Presi?
dent </. the Central Trust Company; Wil?
liam L. Hull, cx-Prcsidcnl <d" the" Stock
Exdiangc; Henry Budge, of Hallgartcn
iY Co.; Charles J). Dickey, Jr., of Brown
Brothers; Capt Hugh G. Gardner and John
Gill, the latter of Baltimore. An advis?
ory Board was appointed, comprising
Grover Cleveland, Edward J. Phclps,
Thomas r. Bayard, President George S.
Cue oi* the American Exchange National
Bank, and President George G. Williams
of the Chemical Bank. The depositories J
of the creditors are the Central Trust j
Company, Brown, Shipley & Co., London;
the .Merchants Trust and Deposit Com?
pany of Baltimore, and the Planters' Na?
tional Bank ?>i' Richmond. C. S. Ellis
was made secretary of the bondholders'
committee, and he was sent lu England to
negotiate Tor the deposit of the bonds
held by the foreigners. lie returned sev?
eral weeks ago, having secured for the
committee control of 85 per cent, of the
defaulted bonds. The committee has the
power of attonuy to dispose of the bonds
on the best terms possible. Bui these
terms must l>c anged with a committee
appointed by the Virginia Legislature on
' .March 5, 1800.
"t Iiis commission consists of Gov. Mc
' Kinncy, Lieut.-Gov. J. llogc Tyler,
Speaker R. IL Cardwell, .Senators Berry
and Wickham, and Delegates Dabricy and
Tvlei\ The Commission was instructed
?'that no proposal shall be entertained
which is not supported by a deposit in
cash of not less than $1,000,000 in such
depository as said Commission may desig?
nate to insure the faithful performance
of the proposal if accepted and ratified
as hereinafter set forth."
The committee, headed by Mr. Olcott,
issued a circular announcing that they
were ready to deposit the $1,000,000, and
that their plan was to deposit their bonds
and receive in return "new bonds to bear
such rate of interest and to have suek/cx
emptioiis, and lo be of ?ueh character as
the representatives of Virginia and tlie
committee consider best calculated' to
give them the standing they will deserve
in the money markets of the world."
This was* accepted by the Advisory
Hoard. Capt. Gardner, 31r. -Bull, and oth?
ers of the Olcott committee went to Rich?
mond and hud conferences with the
State's Commission. Ali the sessions
were secret. Pftpt. (Ludnerand his friends
have just returned.
It seems that at the conferences it was
set forth by the Virginia Commiflbiou that
a hindcrance of Hie immediate adjust?
ment of the debt is the necessity of a
special session of the Virginia Legisla
to pass upon any plan agreed npoh.

The Prcachcro Smite <;,,. i>rie,ee in th?
(London Dispatch.)
Throughoul the country yesterday there
were references to the baccarat scandal,
all of which were more ur less pointed,
and referred to the part which had been
taken !<y the Prince of Wales in the mat?
Mic Rev. Samuel Vincent, a baptist
minister of Plymouth and President of
>he Devon baptist Union, made a promi?
nent reference in the course of his scr
"""! last night, in which he invited
'?churchmen of every shade or' opiniou to
unite in making an earnest appeal to the
Prince of Wales to quit once and forever
th ? practices which had caused so serious
a scandal to spread over the whole na
t ion."
The Itev. Frank Gullen also presented
a special sermon at the Congregational
Church, Wanstead, taking the broad
question of gambling for hi:? subject, and
incidentally alluding to the baccarat
scandal. This-gentleman was not con?
tent with the course pursued by the Rev.
Samuel Vincent, and he evidently deemed
it his duly to inveigh against the Prince.
lie said: "it is sad to see so many rep?
utations wrecked. As far as the Prince
"1 Wales is concerned, he had no charac?
ter to lose; he lias been a persistent Sab?
bath-breaker during the whole of his ca?
At the quarterly meeting of the minis?
te rs a.-id delegates of the Congregational
churches of Breconshirc the following
resolution was passed:
"This Conference has heard with pro?
found regret the implication of His Royal
Highness the Prince of Wales in the bac
caral scandal."*
A second resolution was also passed
which ordered a copy of the foregoing to
be forwarded to the Prince of Wales.
The Primitive Methodist Conference, in
session at Northampton, has passed a
resolution censuring the Prince of Wales
for his connection with the baccarat scan?
Sir William Gordon-Cumming writes
wilh regard to the statements made in a
New Vork newspaper, < n the 12th inst.,
by a member ol the Garner family.
These statements, which were cabled to
England, were as follows:
'?Several papers have by mistake stated
that one of .Miss Florence Garner's (now
Lady Gordon-Cumming) sisters was pres?
ent at her marriage. The eldest, the
Marquise de Brcteuil, is at present in
Xcw Vor!; with her husband. The young?
est, Miss Edith Garner, is at Vicuna with
her aunt, Mrs. Lawrence, The family
wish to rectify tin's mistake, and also to
stale that no one of Miss Gamer's rela?
tions was present at her marriage. Jt is
needless to add that, being of age, she i
took this step against the wishes of her
enl ire fa mily."
Sir William says that these statements
are correct, adding: "Lady Gordon-Cum?
ming iiid not consult any member of her
family on the subject of her engagement
to me. no:- was there any necessity to do

ded, says a letter from an acquaintance of
the baronet in London to a gentleman in
New Voik. t<> relate at length his own
version of the Tran by Crofi baccarat
scandal in a small volume, which he pur?
poses t'0 bring out at a very early date.
In his book he will deal particularly with
what he has termed the '?rascality" of
Lvcetl Green; the manner in which the
Prince of Wales keens secrets: his candid
opinion of the hostess of .Tranby Croft;
the true and only reason why he was call?
ed upon to sign ''that document;" how
the Prince of Wales plays the role of
banker: why he carries his own baccarat
apparatus about with him; (he nonsense
that occurred among the party on both
nights of the play; and last, but not least,
Ladv Brooke's reason for breaking her
promise to the Prince of Wales that she
would not utter a single word about the

Sir William is alleged to have given
the- information to only one or two of his
most intimate friends, and is anxious that
the world should know nothing about Iiis
proposed book until it finally appeals.
it is thought that Sir Edward Clarke,
the Solicitor-General, who defended Sir
William Gordon-Cumming, w ill write the j
introductory part of the volume.
Andy Johnson Executes a Flank Maw
meat on the Western Union by
Chopping Down Their L'oles.
Pj.nevji.lk, June 17.?The war between
Andy Johnson and the Western Union
Telegraph Company has been opened
afresh and there will probably be serious
trouble before the matter is adjusted.
Andy Johnson has the exclusive privilege
of running wires and operating a tele?
phone line in the town. The W. ?.
wish to run their wires from the L. & X.
track to their office in the town. To do
this the two lines must be run along the
same street. Two separate lines with
different poles were put up, but when
Andy came to use his telephone he found
that the telegraph wire interfered with
the succc+.sfufoperation of the telephone.
Accordingly, after notifying the W. V.
without effect, Col. Andy determined to
take matters in his own hands, and last
night secured the services of a negro and
a good sharp ax and stood by and ordered
the obnoxious poles chopped down. One
of the poles was cut and fell to one side
so as to remove the wires from contact
with the telephone line.

The Prospects of Favorable Crops Great
Improves the Situation.
Xi.w York, June 17.?Events darin*
(lie week were mostb of a favorabh
character. 'Die situation abroad, ivhicl
has been the clficf source of anxiety
shows further satisfactory improvomenl
The best evidence of this was the de
cline in gold shipments and tlic rise in
(the Back of England's proportion of re?
serve to liabilities from -i !.::."> per cent, to
4(i.0(vpcr cent, in a \v.uck. On Ma\ 7lli,
or little over a mdlitlr agv?, the ratio was
?!own to ::.'{.:!."? per cent. s-< that it can be
seen how successful (hi- iiistiiuio.il has
been in strengthening ii~ reserves. The
Hank now holds about G5,000;n0tJ gold
more than at I his line in 1 -?:?/), and is in
a much belter position rr.ee! all prob?
able demands tlfan was (hough! possible
a few weeks ago. Whatever sums may
be withdrawn by Russin Ibev will short'vj
be disbursed again in debt payments.
The Bank rate is still held a! I pei cent,
but in open market the rale for monev is
per cent; suggesting a further de?
cline in tlie official rate. Another indi?
cation of reviving confidence in London
was the failure of the join! stock banks
to support t'tie bank of hngland in main- ?
tabling discount rales. Th\< movemcul j
included several of the lending bank of
(Jrcat Britain, but was a complete failure, '
for the simple reason that borrowers had :
no difficulty in finding all necessary ac?
commodation elsewhere ;.f lower rales.1'
The unfavorable progress of (he coring
liquidation also exerted a good ?licet;
and. altogether, the outlook at the woihiY
financial center is certainly much bright
er than in March or April. Paris and
Berlin are still in somewhat straitened
circumstances, but less tension is natur?
ally reported there as a resulf of improve?
ment in London.
Tt is upon the home situation, however,
(ha! we chiefly depend regarding the fu?
ture. Europe may, if she wishes, tempo?
rarily lessen her holdings ol American
stocks, but their superior intrinsic value,
in comparison with till,er investments, is
certain to assert itself and restore them
into preference .:gain. If Americans are
the best securities on which to realize in I
times of depression, they must necessar?
ily be the best to buy when the change
for the better sets in. The all-important
factor in determining future value-; of
stocks is the crop situation. Happily,
this is in our favor, as frequently pointed
out, and as thc*scaspn advances evidences i
of improvement seem lo multiply. The
certainty of an abundant harvest at io nic
and a deficient one abroad increases each j
day. Our crop bureau states tjia! (he in?
crease in winter wheat acreage is I1.? per
cent., and in spring wheat, I per cent.;
while the condition of both stands at (ho
high average of 9G.6 per cent, and U'2.Q
per cent., respectively. To more fairly
understand the effect of good crops upon
business and railroad interests, it should
be remembered thai a'., present v,c are
suffering from the ?h?rt crops of IS!)0. fn
spite of this drawback, the declines in
earnings are small and many roads show
unexpected gains, when Hie unfavorable
conditions are taken info consideration.
Money continues easy, and promises to so
continue until the crop movement; the
present; quietness of trade tending to in?
crease supplies. Mure attention has been
given to Secretary Foster's action in ex?
tending the per ccut. bonds than I he
question deserves. I do no! believe he
will attempt any step thai means contrac?
tion of the currency, for that would be
less popular than success in extending
these bonds a! I'._> per cent. Every one
understands, also, that such a low rale of
interest is possible only because of the
advantages of holding these bonds, other
than their safely and the high credit of
the government. Western ban!:.-, who
hold (he bulk of outstanding S'^.s, may
be willing to accept a lower rate of inter?
est than eastern banks, the higher money
rates of tlic west rendering circulation
more profitable in that section than here;
but, as just said, more importance has
been attached to this element than it de?
serves. The treasury is, upon Secretary
Fosters statements, able to meet all obli?
gations, and the monetary outlook is
clear until the fall. When the crop
movement begins, (hen caution will be
necessary. It is likely that, through
sales of produce and possibly securities,
we shall regain much of the gold recent?
ly spared. The bank reserves arc in
good shape, and il need no! be forgotten
that each year the west shows itself less
and less dependent upon the cast tor its
supplies of money, and the coming fall
may prove no exception. We do no!
look for any radical or immediate change
in the stock market, bul the present posi?
tion of affairs certainly justifies taking a
more hopeful opinion regarding the fu?
ture; and good stocks at present prices
ought to yield a profit to buyers with rca- |
sonable expectations. Hexbv Clews.

Bret Harte once told me, what might
have been a fiction he was trying on my
nature or a fact, that when he was a lad
in San Francisco some female there mar?
ried, and, well connected, allowed him to
become enamored of her, with, whom he
lodged, and in the course of time the lady
went off with her sister, who had married
a rich man, and they agreed to write to
each other and be true, kc, but after he
had published "The Luck of Roaring
Camp," which is the tale of a poor Cy?
prian in a mining camp having a bab\\
which baby evangelized that camp, he
said that the*provincialism of California
could not stand so much popularity as he
received, and the immorality was taken
up and made the most of, since they could
not deny that it had constructive, pic?
turesque and literary merits.
Every provincial scab harped upon tiie
dreadful immorality of this tale, which
looks like a plagiarism out of the New
Testament, where the Magdalen was taken
iu the field but did not forsake the cross.
One set of articles was so severe that
Harte wondered what man could have
such ven?m in his nature; and ^oing to
Joseph Lawrence, of the Golden Bra, who
had published these things in his paper,
lie said, "Lawrence, you rxnist tell rhc
who thai man is." Said Lawrence,
"Harte, it is lrtt a man at all, hut a wo?
man; and 1 will show her to yon to-night.
She is connected with one of orir lies I
families." The two men wen I t It a I night
to a charitable fair, and as they approach?
ed a certain table Mr. Lawrence indi a
tcd a woman. "There is the .-tern moral?
ist," he said.
Harte looked at the woman, ho says.
J and recognized that one who had cverv
j reason to forgive the heroine ami mother
of Roaring Camp. With indignation he
! approached the table; but in oaf moment
he saw from her eyes and look that the
woman in this case was going to as?
sume "all,lite righteousness of thai large

Taliuagrc and Kelh
(jr. v. San.;
of course the Rev. Dr. Talmagc of
Brooklyn believes in the Devil. Ee had
much to say about him in his sermon of
last Sunday morning. He argued that ii
is Satan who is stirring up the present
anarchy in the Protestant churches. He
maintained that, until recently, Satan
had been having "dull times" in hell on
account of the spread of religion, through
which many souls were saved; "and so,"
cried Tal mage, "Satan rose upon Iiis
throne one day and said. Ye [lowers of
darkness, hear !" Thereupon, according
to Talmagc, these powers hastened to
Andovcr, and to the Union Theological
Seminary in New York, and to the Presby?
terian General Assembly, and to that old
Episcopal Church, and to thai old Metho?
dist Church, and got up squabbles and
raised storms in them, whereby the influ?
ences of religion are destroyed. So that
Satan can now again rejoice in getting
his full quota of victims.
About a business Devil of this kind,
with a horde of imps at his command,
there can be no misunderstanding. If
the Rev. Dr. Talmagc has not seen him in
hell, it is hard to tell how he could give I
such a vivid and terrible description of
him and Iiis work as he gave in the
Brooklyn Tabernacle last Sunday.
but the higher critics of these limes,
especially those of Germany, disbelieve in
a Devil of the kind described by Talmagc.
It is safe to say that among the unbe?
lievers in him in'this country arc such
men as the Rev. Professor Briggs, the
Rev. Phillips Brooks, the Rev. Dr.
Rainsford, the Rev. lieber Newton, the
Rev. Howard MacQueary, and others.

spicuous by their absence, and Frick, who
led the fttrnaccmcn to believe they could

price at $1.00. He was asked w hy he had

that such was his original intention, but
thai on consultation with his mining su
perintendents he found that he could not
make a $1.75 rate without cutting down
the price of labor, which would be an im?
politic step at this time. In response to
the furnacemen's statement that they
could not make pig iron with $1.00, and

The Venerable Gen. W. R. Gives Some
Reminiscences of the Great Captain,
(Lecture at Leo Camp.)
Jackson was a devout man, with a slight
tendency towards fatalism, which, how?
ever, was not the cause of his apparently
reckless exposure to danger. It was a
devoted regard for duty as he understood
The movements of Jackson were al?
ways mysterious. It was rather trying to
the division officers to be required to
blindly march their commands without
knowing where they were going.
Once?at Manassas Junction?General
Jackson explained to him and to General
Stuart, who was also present, the nature
of the movement he intended to make
that night and the next day. To his rec?
ollection this was the only time Jackson
ever divulged a plan.
General Taliaferro's narrative abound?
ed in incidents,, many of them having a
touch of humor. That their delivery was
splendid need not be told those who are
acquainted with the General. Many of
the circumstances he related could only
have been acquired by a close association
with the head of the old Stonewall bri?
gade, and Eecmed to impress upon those
who heard, the grandeur of the character
of the wonderful soldier of whom he told.
; A few of these will illustrate.
Alluding to Jackson's love of artillery,
General Taliafcrro said that on one occa?
sion Jackson invited hint to ride out to
the batteries. Becoming interested in the
serving ot the guns Jackson seemed to
lose his personality and leaned forward in
his saddle to watch the effect of the shots,
unoonseious of all else. Men and horses
fell around him and one of his couriers
was killed, but he took no notice. Turn?
ing to General Taliafcrro, Jackson inquir?
ed of him if he was a man of family. Ho
replied that he had a wife and five chil?
dren, who in leas than five minutes would
be ft widow aiid five orphan*. At Ibis
Jackson seemed to become conscious thai
the place for the commander of a corps
was not at a battery, and giving command
to move the guns rode to the rear, a ret?
rograde movement that General Taliafcr?
ro remarked he felt compelled to parHci*
pate in.- He was firmly convinced that it
was Jackson's solicitude for his wife end
live children that saved bolli their lives.

It is said that contentment is the great?

next to absolute contentment, and nearly
exactly the same thing, is perfect self

A few years ago a fellow from Massa?
chusetts was down in South Carolina, and
as he walked along the street, after he
hail been there some time, there was an
old fellow nailing a sign upon his house.
" For Sail," and this Massachusetts fel?
low looked at the old man and said:
"That isn't the way to spell sale." And
the old fellow, with a great deal of con?
tempt, tnrncd to him and said:
" How long have you lived in Charles?
"Well," he rays, 11 have been here
about a year."
" Well, young man," said the Charles
tonian, " I was bom here; I guess I know
how to spell sale." [Loud laughter and
applause.] There is nothing so beautiful
as confidence in the place where you re?
side. [Laughter.]

her as being the most perfect form of
man that had ever been conceived by the
brain of an artist; and. the old woman
walked all around it, looked at it from
every point of view, nnd she savs:
"That's the Apollo Bclvidere, is it?"
" Yes."
" Well, give me Jones," [Loud laugh?
