has finally been received from the
Creussot Steel works, in France, to tlie effect
that they will furnish tho plates for
the test of the turrets of the unfinished
monitors, for which Congress at tho last
session appropriated lUo sum of $20,000.
Having spent some four months in considering
the matter, they replied that they
will accept the ofiur of tho Navy Depart
incut, but can not furnish the plates lot
fvo months. This will probi'bly do::iy
tlio completion of tho monitors for another
year, it is understood that Congress by
appropriating money to test a new style
ot turret did uot intend to make any provision
for tho completion and armament
of the iron clads until this controversy
as to tho relativomerits of the deflective
and vertical armor was
scaled. There ' was no doubt that
Congress strongly leaned to the deflective
armor, but naturally tho old officers of
tho department, not seeing any good in
whut did not come through a member of
the ancient and regular line of service,
made some opposition to its adoption.
Congress thereupon said: "We'll test the
matter, and tho monitors can wait for
their turrets till wo find out by actual experience
which is right." Tho feeling on
tho subject rises to an extreme height
at times. Tho friends of the dei
fectivo system called tho vertical turret
tlio ancient cheese-box, and tho old skeptics
called tho new system the "inverted
soup-plate." Tho fact remains, however,
that Congress was so impressed witli
the soup-plate that money was refused foi
turrets except for tho test. Tho fear is
new that tho tests can not bo completed in
time for action next session.

of this Stato to investigate tlio manner in
which the riparUu rights of tho Stale were
i., .-.i .4 -4 r.. nt,,. In tin.
course of their discussion with the officers
of the Riparian Commission, tho fact came
out that a mile of water front at Asbury
Park had been given to James A. Bradley,
on a perpetual lease, for S140 a yvar.
Other tracts of water front, now of
value, it is believed, have been
granted away on similar torms, and a
largo proportion of tho riparian land of
tho Stato has been sold abjolutely for very
littlo, compared with tho value which it
subsequently dovoloped. These leases and
salps aro ascribed to tho inability on the
part of tho Riparian Commission to
appreciate the vast and rnpia increase
in tho value of tho riparian lands, which
arises from tho rapid buildi.(; np of seashore
resorts and tho increasing demands
of commorco id Now York harbor.
The committee ordered to bo prepared
for them a report of all grants of riparian
lands made by tlio Commisfcion, with tho
amount paid, as rent or purchase money,
and also a report of tho amount of riparian
land sold and unsold in each county.

Washington, Sept. 22. Ex-Governor
Chamberlain, formerly of South Carolina,
lias written a letter to Congressman
in which ho warmly scorns the
movement nud defends the regular
Republicans. After' characterizing the
Mahone party as founded upon the
political aggrandizement of its leaders
and the avowed and specially
shnmolnis repudiation, he Bavs : "Its
leader has stood and stands in tlie minds
of careful obscrveif., sp far as 1 know, as
the type and consummate embodiment of
political bosisni and self-peeking. At a
time when ull wise, true men an seeking
remedy for the evils of partisan zeal or
creed and the elevation of tho public good
above all party interests, this leader
looms up as the prince of all hucksters in
Itublic olHccs, and what is more
still, if not moro shameful, the Republican
party at Washington in a variety
of wajs has either overlooked,
or aided this character and history."
Speaking of this policy Governor
Chamberlain continues: '"Its immorality
is not greater than its following. Ma-,
hone and his followers are not Republicans
and have never professed to bo, and
if they were the self-respecting portion pf
that party would be under' even greater
obligations to repudiate and cut loose from
them. Thero aro occasions when gravo
diflerences may be overlooked in aid of
great results and noble causes, biU I
know of no codo of morals or honor which
warrants a partnership with repudiation
and tho veriest political for the
role end of retaining or gaining power and
office. I do not know all the facts, and
henco I make no special charges, but if
the Administration nt Washington, as the
newspapers give us much reason to fear,
is supporting or aiding Mahone it is an
intolerable humiliation and wrong, nnd
all good Republicans ought to so consider
it a special ofl'ense against civil service reform
u5 well as against general political
good conduct. Stand fast then, I say,
whether alone or with many, by sound
political doctrines, which for me means
always the public good beforo evorything
else, and perfect good faith towards public
A Orriiinu fllrl'tt ICcunou for Sulrlde.
Glasoow, Mo., Sept. 22. Tho citizens
of Glasgow were startled by tho news that
a suicide had been committed here. The
news proved true, and on going
down to the river tho form of a
body was teen lying in tlio water.
The victim was a young German girl,
about twenty-three years of age, who liatl
becnin this country only about a month.
Her name was Agnes Rait, and she was a
servant in the family of Fred Burkhart, a
German cooper of this city. The girl got
up at i o'clock in tho morning, went down
the steep bank in front of the Burkhart
place, entered the river and deliberately
laid down in the -water, which was shallow,
and laid herself down until life wus
extinct. A negro boy saw her go in the
water, but before ho could summon assistance
it was too late. Somo men then got
a skiff and went out and towed the body
in to shore, where it lay until tho
inquest was held. Tho facts as developed
at the inquest are about as
follows: She and a young roan named
Kulin came over from Germany about a
rrfontlr ago. Sho was engaged to bo
married to Kuhn. Sho had been subject
to fits of despondency and was seen to cry
bitterly every day for the last two weeks.
She constantfv complained of being homesick;
she -had told Mr. Burkhart and his
wife that Kuhn had promised to marry
her.'but wished to defer tho
he could make moro monoy.' Burkhart
testified to her good character and
industry, and said that she was moro despondent
than ever at night and
seemed loth to retire. IIo heard
her get up in the morning
nnd tried to .get her to go
back to bed, but sho passed on out. His
wifq called her. nnd, receiving no reply,
up to look lor her, but could not find
f;ot Dr. Prichott, tho examining physician,
testified that ho held a post-mortem
.c.unuii.uioi! uuu luiuiu uii eviuuuuw Ul
virtue. Some parties havo endeavored to
weave a romance around tho melancholy
suicide, saying that she was ruined and
then deserted by her lover,but that theory
falls far short of the truth, as will bo seen
by tho result of tho post-mortem. Tho
sole reason of tho suicide seems to have
been a severe caso of melancholy, caused
by thd fact that sho was alone in a strange
land, could not speak a word of English,
and tho absence of her lover, who lives in
another part of tho country.
A "COMMON SCOLD."
L'urloiiM CrliniiiulProuociitlou In
Mahylanp, Sept. 23. Sophia Snyder
was beforo Judge Stewart, of tho Criminal
Court, on the chargo of being a coihmon
scold. His honor decided that tho common
scold law was obsoleto, and remarked
that it was tho genoral practice of womankind
to freely use their favorite
weapon, tho tonguo, and that it was not
oven in tho power of the lawmakers to
stop them. It took two peoplo to quarrel,
andto avoid trouble, if ono was disposed
to it, the other had hotter refrain from
such company. In regard to the stututory
nature of tho offense, the Judge said it he-longed
to the mcdiicval ages and was a
law which, having been declared ybsolcto
in England many years ago, ho hud no
wish to rovive in tub country. Ho looked
upon it in tho same sense as witchcraft
and eavesdropping old crimes, for which
tho punishment had been the "ducking-stool."
A Nnw YarK Farmer Mnrtlera u Tel.
ALBA2v, Sopt. 22. William Hanlon, a
foreman ol a gang of linemen in the cm-ploy
of tho Construction Telegraph and
Telephone Company of this city who was
shot trj Thomas Gallgher,a farmer of this
vicinity, died after lingering for fourteen
hours in great agony. Gallagher enmo
homo drunlt Mondny evening and seeing
the lineman at work laying poles on tho
towpath near tlio edge of his farm,
ordered lliem to desist They paid
no attention to his threats and a
ensued, which ended in Gallagher
being knocked down. IIo then ran into
the house procured his rifle and turned on
'Ilanlan, who stood on the canal boat
which had been chartered hy tlio company.
Hanlan said : " Don't shoot me; I haven't
said u word to you." But tho murderer
fired the bullet, striking Haitian in tlio
right breast, passing through his body.
IIo fell into tho canal, from which ho was
drawn by his men. Tho point whero tho
murdor took place is about midway between
Dunham's and Smith's Basins on
the Champlain Canal in tho town of Kingsbury.
Gallagher fled soon after the shooting,
but soon uftcr walked into the oflico
of tho polico authorities at Sandy Hill
nnd formally surrendered himself. Ho is
about years of age, nnd has a
wife and several children. Ho sorved as
private in the Sixteenth Regiment N. Y.
V. during tho war, and is a member of the
Kingsbury Veteran Company, tho weapon
used by him being an Enfield riflo belonging
to that organization.
PICKED UP AT SEA.
Terrible SnnTcrlujeH of Two
Ways In an Open Ilout.
St. Johns; N. F., Sept. 22. Tho schooner
Mercury, a French fishing vessel, has
arrived at St. Pierre from tho Great
Banks. Sho brought in two Newfoundland
fishermen, named Matthews and
Walsh, who had got astray from their
schooner, A. G. Harris, when off tho
Grand Banks on September 2. They wero
six days and nights in their dory without
a particle of food or water. They had
raado a drag of their oars to keep tho
dory's head at sea, hut tho rope
unfortunately parted and they wero thus
left to tho fury of tho wind and waves.
Matthews took "off his neck scarf on tho
fourth day and hoisted it on a boatbook
as a signal of distress. On the 8th of Belfast
brig, bound to Mirainichi, sighted tho
ocean waif by its flag and bore down on
it, only in time to rescue tho poor fellows
from a horrible death. Both had
become delirious, cut open his veins
and sucked his blood to allay
the burning thirst that was con-
suming him. So enfeebled were they that
tho brig's crow had to hoist them on board.
On tho 12th they were transferred to tho
Mercury and landed at St. Pierre, Tho
Mercury also brought in Captain John
Hiscoek, Horatio Lodge, Thomas Lodge
and William Hobbs, who were saved from
tho wrecked Newfoundland banker
Thoy report that tho know
nothing of tho fate of tho remainder of
the crew. All four of them took refuge
in ono dory.
A Georgia JfiidyN Way of INtubllNtiinc;
Savaxjuii. Ga., Sept. 22. A cowhiding
scrape, in which a bewitching brunette of
the uppor ten thousand played the leading
rolo, created a veritable sensation in
tho city. She had been annoyed by several
notes fiom a man supposed to bo a
commercial traveler for a New York
house, and upon tho advice of a gentleman
friend granted tlio unknown correspondent
tho privilege of calling at her
home. Not anticipaitng a trap tho
stranger appeared, and had hardly
gained tho parlor when ho asked the
lady's company for a stroll. Acceptin
the invitation she left tho house, but hai
not proceeded half a block when the gentleman
who had concocted the plot passed
her and haded her a heavy cowhide.
Without a word of warning she suddenly
commenced slashing her insulter across
tlie face with the whip, and beforo ho
could realize the situation he wus streaming
with blood and had both eyes
nearly closed. His attempted apology
only drew forth more blows, and he finally
took to his heels. The lady appeared not
tiic least overcome by tho excitement, nnd
regained her home beforo tho family were
aware of what was going on. Had tho
cliastibcd dude fallen into the hands of
the ludy's brother ho would in all probability
havo met with a dose of cold lead.
Efforts aro making to ferret out tho man,
and if successful, further sensational developments
may bo looked for.

Albuquerque, N. M., Sept. 23. Miss
Lulu Green, a popular society young
lady .of Albuquerque, and ono of high
culture and gicat beauty, suddenly left
tho city in ' the latter part of July last,
letting neither mother nor it lends know
where sho was going. She wrote hei
mother a week afterwards, stating that
she was in Chicago with friends. The
last week in August Mrs. Green recoivou
a letter from her daughter, announcing
that she had entered the
College of the Order of- tho Sacret
Heart at Maryyille, South St. Louis, anu
took tho veil on the 15th of. that month.
Mrs. Green was seriously affected by he.
daughter's departure,and when sho luarnuu
bholiad taken the veil, became seriously
ill, and it was thought for somo weeks
that sho would not recover from tho shock.
There wero loud denunciations of those
who had euticed her daughtor to take such
a step, but nono could divhjo who it was
that luul so powerful an influence over
her. IlOr mother has just found among
borne of her daughters pnpeis, which tin
young lady in her hurry of departure evidently

Rostov, Mass., Sept. 23. It has been
stated that the largest diamond ever sent
to this country, weighing 125 carats, will
bo cut iu Boston. Henry D. Morse, head
of the Morse Diamond Cutting Company,
and tho first man who ever cut a diamond
in America, said Saturday that ho did not
yet know whether his house would got the
job or not, but that ho was negotiating for
it. The stouo is as largo as a full-sized
walnut, and is a little "off color." said Mr.
morse, "something Iiko this one" hold

as a liickory nut. Tho bier New York :l

threo or four years ago. Tho finder waa
ono of a camp of diamond hunters in a
very dreary and remote district. When
he accidentally stumbled on his great
"find" he was overjoyed. Then a terrible
fear took possession of him, should his
companions learn that ho had such a valuable
stone in his possession. He endeavored
to conceal his luck but his
actions betrayed him. IIo was murdered
and tho man who murdered him met a like
fate. Beforo tho stone reached this
country it cost four lives. Tho last owner,
in dying, gave tho diamond to a native,
who bartered it to a sea captain. In
this way it finally reached America, and
was purchased by its present owner.

Gfeneral Lew Wallace was read, in which
he defends himself from the imputations
of mismanagement at tho battle Of Shiloh
placed upon him during tho war and reechoed
by General Badeau in his "Life of
Grant." General Wallace prefaces his
defence with tho statement that the criticisms
made upon his conduct wore tho result
of ill-feeling on the part of certain
regular aripy officers, not named,
and in order to shield themselves.
The chief criticism was
that Wallace had failed to strictly obey
Grant's orders and had marched to tho
point at which ho was to enter the fightby
a circuitous route, whereby he lost several
hours' time, and the point is welt upon
by Badeau. Wallace states thR lie obeyed
the order to the letter, and affidavits from
several officers are produced in support of
his assertion. The letter was accompanied
by one from Gen. George F. McGinnis,
of equal length, substantiating all that
Wallace says. The latter makes tho point
that the battle was lost long before ho went
into the light. Tho letter concluded by
saying that he has rested under imputations
put upon him nt the time as long as
he pioposes to, and undertakes a defence
at this Into day with a full understanding
of the fight he has to make against odds to
vindicate himself. He thinks that ho was
made to suffer by reason of tho well
known dislike of the regular army officers
for tho volunteers. General Wallaco entered
tho war at the head of tho Eleventh
regiment, and his letter is addressed to it
for this reason.
Precaution Against tho Foot and
Washington, D. C, Sept. 23. Secretary
Folger has sent a communication to tho
Collector of Customs at Now York, in
which ho stated that tho Untted States
Cattle Commission had been informed of
an alarming increase in tho foot-and-mouth
disease among the cattle of Great
Britain. Under theso circumstances,
officers of the customs service would hereafter
exercise the strictest care in examining
into the sanitary condition of all
cattle, sheep, swine and goats imported
into the United States. While tho regulations
did not require tho quarantine of
other animals than meat cattle, customs,
officers would do well to maka it carefu I
examination of all animals on their
arrival in port. Should any of tho anu
mnls mentioned ho found suffering with
disease the owner should bo promptly notified
of tho danger and requested to allow
tho detention and quarantine of tho cattle
if they were not of tho character prescribed
by tho regulations of the cattle
commission. The subject has been carefully
investigated and tho increase of tho
diseaso has at last been admitted by tho
press of Great Britain, which is unanimous
in seeing stops taken for its extermination.
